About Me

Erik is an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer in Kent, Washington. He has worked exclusively as a criminal defense attorney in the King County and Pierce County courts for more than 21 years and has sat as a Judge Pro Tem in various courts in King County. 


 


When you call his office, you will receive the type of personalized service you cannot get at a larger firm. Erik is always there to answer your questions directly; you will not be handed off to a paralegal or an intern to deal with your concerns.


 


Erik has defended all types of criminal charges from Murder to Domestic Violence. As well as Assault, Shoplifting, Forgery, Reckless Driving, VUCSA, DUI, DWI, Theft, Robbery, Burglary, drug offenses, sex offenses, felonies, and misdemeanors during his long career.
