Jonathan and his staff did a fantastic job handling my case. I am convinced that I could not have picked a more competent and professional lawyer for my situation. He eased my worries by explaining the process and communicating the status of each hurdle along the way.
My situation happened several hundreds of miles away from the Seattle area where I live and Jonathan was able to minimize what could have been several trips back and forth to the area of the incident saving me money and time.
Best of all I was very happy with the outcome of the case. Thanks to Jonathans experience as a DUI defense attorney we got great results and I was able to move on with my life and put a messy situation behind me. I would highly recommend Jonathan Dichter to anyone facing DUI charges.

Jonathan is very good and extremely knowledgeable about what he does. He has helped me with three seperate cases and got results i didn’t even think would be possible. And with that he is also one of the nicest-most caring people I have met. And I really felt he was by my side 100%. Without crossing that line of professionalism. I would refer him to anyone i know one hundred times over again!!

Jonathan Dichter has a very calming personality; that even in the most upsetting events he can make a dreadful situation seem at least a bit manageable, to say the least. His professional and genuinely kind heart manner allowed me to have complete confidence in him and his work since day one. From my experience it is not very common to be able to have such a trusting relationship with someone you do not even know; especially when in a very low point in life. Well, these are just a few facts that should drive one to come to the conclusion that he has a natural ability to love and care for people in need, which makes this conscientious man a very good lawyer. Mr. Dichter is a rare breed when it comes to finding a lawyer. Please don’t pass up an opportunity to make a negative experience into a positive one. No matter what your outcome is, I can assure you that it will still suffice.

Jonathan was mentioned to me by a friend who had hired him to defend her teenage son. My friend was highly satisfied with his skill, professionalism and kind help.
I had occasion to call Jonathan when my own child was charged with a minor in possession of alcohol. For this my child was put in jail, in a different state. Jonathan personally answered my frantic phone call at 10:30pm. There was no personal gain for Jonathan, as this was an out of state case. He spoke with me calmly and advised me, rather late at night. He referred me to appropriate counsel and answered all my questions.
Unfortunately, we had another reason to call Jonathan. He represented my child for an instate offence. Once again we were thoroughly satisfied with his handling of this case, both from a legal and a personal point of view. What surprised me is how Jonathan mixed kindness and respect with an expectation of accountability from our child. This aspect of his practice exceeded expectations.
I have referred 2 friends to Jonathan. They were both extremely relived and grateful to have his excellent representation and empathetic help.

I had a DV that I was involved in along with a possesion charge. I was extremely worried about the outcome and what I was up against. I typed in lawyers in my area and called a couple with zero relief, I then proceeded to find Jonathon on Avvo. I called him and immediatly he made me feel at ease. I then came in for a free consultation and we went from there. He was very easy to work with on payments"unfortunatley I still owe a small balance" and really went to bat for me and got me a very good deal. Thanks Jonathon!!!!!!!

Jonathan helped me from the morning that I called him. He was clear, concise, and empathetic. He was knowledgeable , predictable and willing to listen to my needs.

While driving home one day, I was pulled over for a speeding violation, and Jonathan offered to help me with my situation. He went to court for me as was able to get both the fee reduced and the ticket off of my driving record! I would definitely recommend him to all my friends. Thanks Jonathan!

Mr. Dichter provided me inaccurate information which I believe was self serving; in short he drastically exaggerated the prospects of sentencing in order to exaggerate the benefits of his service, such self serving advice contributed to great personal stress (which I believe he recognized at the time). In my limited experience Mr. Dichter is not someone I would trust.
