About me

My clients and I work as a team to achieve the desired result. I candidly explore and explain their situation and the law. I see myself as their negotiator, guide and, when needed, their warrior. I am tenacious and hate giving up. I love what I do and I care about my clients. I have a reputation as an outstanding attorney and I am confident that you will recognize the difference when you meet me. I can be contacted day or night at 206-321-3248.

    I very highly endorse this lawyer. Elizabeth Anne Padula, whom I’ve known as a colleague for many years, has about 20 years’ experience fighting relentlessly for her clients’ rights. She is honest, ethical, compassionate and an astute, hard-working problem solver. For trustworthy, intelligent, creative and formidable criminal defense representation, I could not recommend anyone better.
