Seattle’s Best Criminal Defense Attorneys

You already know what it’s going to take to get out of the situation you are in. That is why you are on our website reading about criminal defense attorneys. To get out of the trouble you are in, a great Seattle criminal criminal lawyer is required.

From the moment you hire a criminal lawyer to help you with your charges, several things will start to happen right away (if you hire a good one). First, you will instantly feel a sense of relief. After all, you’ve got someone on your side who’s entire reason for existing is to get you out of trouble.

Second, things will start to happen immediately. Great criminal attorneys make their living by picking apart the cases built against their clients. The more holes we can poke in the prosecution’s case against you, the better the result will be. It starts with sifting through the police reports, witness statements, videos, physical evidence and anything else the prosecution has on your case.

And then we go to work and get everything else. We get the cops disciplinary histories and training records. We look into the background of witnesses. We track down anyone and everyone involved in the case. Once we’re done, we put together all of that information and use it to show the prosecutor why their case is a weak one.

But that’s not all. When you hire a great criminal defense lawyer, your anxiety lowers immediately. Whenever you start to feel a little nervous, you just pick up the phone and check in with your lawyer. And the good ones will check in with instead of always waiting for you to call them.

Why We’re Great Seattle Criminal Lawyers

Two things make us the best there is. First, our beliefs. Second, our commitment to great service.

Emerald City Law Group holds five non-negotiable beliefs:

  1. There is no higher calling than to defend people accused of crimes.

  2. Everybody deserves an aggressive defense.

  3. If the government wants to put you in jail, they are going to have to work for it.

  4. There is no such thing as a hopeless case.

  5. The lawyer that is prepared and willing to fight gets the results.

Emerald City Law Group focuses on three areas to ensure we provide the great service we promise:

  1. Expertise

  2. Communication

  3. Follow through


Every lawyer at our firm, no matter who you talk to, will share several common traits.

First, we all have trial experience and believe that the right to a jury trial should not be given up without serious thought. In reality, most of our cases don’t go to trial. But that’s not because we’re afraid of a trial. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Having a lawyer on your side whom prosecutors know will take a case to trial helps you get results. We aren’t afraid of anyone.

Second, we have successfully represented people on cases from shoplifting to aggravated assault, from manufacturing methamphetamine to murder. We have clients accused of DUI (more on that here), drug conspiracy, reckless driving, theft, and all the way up to white collar federal offenses. To see some of our amazing results, click here.

Third, every week the attorneys sit down in our conference room and talk about the progress of our cases, any challenges we are facing, and any new legal decisions that have come out that may impact our cases. It’s the best way we’ve found to make sure we have the firepower we need to get the results we want.

Fourth, every criminal attorney at Emerald City Law Group is a member of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. We know if we don’t keep learning, if we don’t keep pushing ourselves, we’re going to start to fall behind. We are constantly upgrading and fine tuning our skills to ensure we get the best results for our clients.


At Emerald City Law Group isn’t just being able to talk to us when you have a question about your case. For us, that’s automatic.

We want to give you more.

Instead of always waiting for you to call for information we take a proactive approach. When you hire us you can expect, at a minimum, a weekly email from us updating you on the status of your case and letting you know what we’ve been doing on your case. Even if nothing has changed (sometimes these cases can move very slowly), you’ll know. And when you know, you don’t have to guess. And when you don’t have to guess you don’t have to worry. You’ll never be left guessing.

Follow Through

We don’t rely on memory to make sure your case is being taken care of. After helping hundreds of people get out of trouble, we began to see patterns emerge with the way cases were investigated and with the steps we needed to take to make sure our clients got our best. We created a specific set of processes and procedures to that we carry out on every one of our criminal cases.

Nothing slips through the cracks because the moment you hire us your case is placed into a workflow that includes over 100 action items. Important court deadlines are entered, important internal deadlines are entered, and your case begins down a path that ensures you are getting our best efforts (and the best results).
