  • Terri Rae Luken

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jeff for over two decades: first when we were both deputy prosecutors for King County, and then when Jeff went into private practice in criminal defense. When I was a prosecutor, I knew Jeff to be a knowledgeable, determined and effective advocate for his defense clients. Since I have been in private practice for the past four years, I have referred multiple clients to Jeff for criminal defense, and they have all been very satisfied with his representation. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff as a skilled criminal defense lawyer.
