Hello! I'm Edward Nelson and I've worked as a lawyer in Washington State for over 13 years. During that time, I've had the opportunity to help thousands of people defend themselves against serious criminal, traffic, and immigration charges.
Earlier in life, one of the best decisions I ever made was to join the United States Army. My eight years of service helped form my character and values.
I was also lucky enough to be chosen for training as a Korean intelligence analyst. That experience allowed me to develop a strong relationship with Korea, some great Korean people, and a wonderful Korean culture that I have enjoyed for over 30 years.
Today, I try to use those experiences to provide a personal approach in helping our clients confront their individual situations. Each person's experiences and cultural background have a profound affect on their reaction to being charged with a crime, being cited for a traffic infraction, or making a decision regarding immigration status. We have the experience and patience necessary to help anyone facing these important issues in their life.
