I was actually referred to Diego Vargas by a friend who is an experienced police officer, after my daughter was stopped and arrested by a WA state trooper for bogus DUI. Diego's work was great: He listened carefully and was very generous with his time; he explained things very well; he clearly knew the law and commanded respect in the courtroom; and best of all, he got the charge against my daughter dismissed by making it clear that the trooper never had probable cause to make the traffic stop in the first place. Not that I would ever want to need this type of legal help again, but if I did I would hire Diego in an instant.
I had a very difficult case to handle because I am out of town for work over half the year with a very inconsistent and unpredictable schedule. Diego was extremely patient with me and handled my court scheduling incredibly. When it came time for trial he wowed me and knocked the socks off this case. I am so happy that i found Diego. I have friends who have gotten DUIs and they are all very jealous of the service that I was provided.
I was charged with a DUI in December of 2010. I hired Diego after hearing about his excellent service via a family friend. I have never been charged with anything-so naturally I expected the first time going to the courthouse would be confusing, stressful and overall terrifying.
The courtroom is not a relaxing place for anyone, but I assure any future clients that Mr. Vargas strives to make the experience as painless as possible.
My case went on for two years and not once did I feel out of the loop or discouraged. He is extremely well-liked by every professional in the courtroom and it shows. He is confident, charasmatic, and unquestionably intelligent.
After the prosecution refused to reduce the charge, Diego was more than willing to take the case to trial. Fortunately, he was able to compromise with the prosecution and the charge was reduced.
There is only so much a lawyer can do with the evidence provided and circumstances of any case, but I assure you Mr. Vargas will achieve the best outcome possible.
The court process is long, confusing and intimidating. Not only was Mr. Vargas accessible at any moment but he did a great job of making me feel at ease with the process and confident with the eventual outcome. After Mr. Vargas finished his closing argument it only took the jury 9 minutes to come to a not guilty verdict. I would recommend Mr. Vargas to family members and friends who needed the best in the business.
In my years of experiences with numerous attorneys I have never had one quite like Diego. He has completely taken the fear and guessing out of my case, DUI. Diego is reliable, trustworthy, hard working, and tenacious. I never once felt threatened with him by my side and he has repeatedly fought for me. That's right, FOUGHT for ME. He is not they type to lay down and get pushed around. He is very intelligent and knows the law, porsecuters, and judges and is very well respected. Simply put, he is absolutely, positively the BEST there is, unequivically.
Diego came recommended to me by a friend when i was charged with a DUI. Im not one to generally write reviews but this one is much earned. Diego is well skilled & impressive in the court room.His confidence put my anxiety at ease...many times! It was clear that he genuinely cared, which was my biggest concern when choosing a lawyer. He won my trial. It took only 20 minutes for the jurors to come back with a not guilty verdict. Observing Diego in my trial i realized that a great lawyer is not only a person knowledgable with the law but someone who is thoughtful and aware of reactions and interactions. He's a good read of people. I feel fortunate to have had him represent me.
I got a dui n we took it to jury trial and I was found no guilty. It was a big relief.
Over several years I worked with Diego and many other DUI attorneys as a court clerk for King County. Out of all the DUI attorneys I observed in the courtroom, Diego provided the most passionate and skilled advocacy for his clients. He spends the time to get to know you and the intricacies of your individual case. Other DUI attorneys treat cases with a cookie cutter philosophy. You can trust Mr. Vargas to devote the full time, energy, and attention your case deserves. He is also very reasonably priced for the level of quality you will get.
Diego is a highly skilled and effective trial attorney. After being arrested for a DUI, I both kept my license and was found not guilty at trial, thanks to Diego's expertise. Through the highly stressful process, Diego was present and available with realistic information and compassion. If you have been arrested for a DUI, a good trial attorney is what you want. Diego came highly recommended by the top authorities in his field. He is clearly a leader in the courtroom, respectful of the judge but his advise is sought after by his colleagues. Diego honestly prepared me for the worst, but gave me the best possible outcomes. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Diego changed my life for the better and is not only highly skilled, but has a warm heart and will help you navigate the stressful and complicated process. He is undoubtedly the best.
The last several months of my life have been the most challenging and emotionally difficult that I've ever experienced in my life. That said, Diego Vargas handled my case in the most professional manner possible. He was always available to talk and give advice even on Sundays! My case was particularly difficult as I was arrested in Bellevue for DUI. Bellevue is the absolute worst place that you can ever get a DUI in the State of Washington and the only DUI trial lawyer that I know of, that not only won my case but countless others in the city of Bellevue is Diego Vargas. His knowledge of the legal system and mastery of the trial process sets him FAR apart from any of his contemporaries. If you are in need of an aggressive DUI trial attorney in Bellevue or anywhere else in the Seattle area there is simply no need to look elsewhere.
