  • Martin J.H. Duenhoelter

    I have been working side by side with Scott and his Law firm representing indigent people in lakewood, WA, for over 8 years. I have had the honor of being co-counsel with Scott in a criminal trial. He definitely carried the load in that case, he is smart, quick and he treats everyone with decency and respect. When I need to refer anyone to a Lawyer in King County, it is only Scott Stewarts firm as I know they will get top grade AAA+++ service and skills. I have worked side by side with him for years and really respect him. Hire Scott... NOW!

  • Simon Stocker

    When I started my career as prosecutor, I had many cases with Scott as the defense attorney. Over the years, I have seen Scott in the courtroom as both defense attorney and judge. I am so impressed with his abilities and knowledge. He sets a fantastic example for the rest of us.
