As I was at work I received a call that the police were at my house conducting a raid on my mmj collective garden in my detached garage (mind you, this happened in the most strict, anti-marijuana county in washington). Upon my return to house, the police had proceeded to rip up my entire garden, minus a few seedlings that were about an inch tall, taking all my flowering and veg plants. At the time I was over my plant count limit. They proceeded to go into my house and confiscate my money, cannabis and guns. I called Aaron Pelley and hired him. He was able to get the search warrant for my house deemed illegal and all was able to get me all of my possessions back. On top of this, he was able to argue my case pre-trial and have the search warrant for my garage/garden deemed illegal as well, dismissing me from all charges. His work has helped my family more than words could ever say. He made good on every promise he made me, and spared me from a minimum of 18 months (gun enhancement) as well as the minimum 2 years they were trying to give me. He is with a doubt the best investment into my future I have ever made, without him, My family would have suffered while I sat in jail/prison for growing a few plants.
I would not hesitate to recommend Aaron to anyone who has a cannabis related problem (In fact, I did). I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism.
Aaron Pelley is a splendid defense attorney. With how screwed up pot laws are in Washington state currently, Aaron is a very reassuring, informative and honest lawyer to work with. I was stuck dealing with a pot related DUI and was floating around the system for about 2 years. Aaron was there for me the entire time, he isn't one of those lawyers who tack on multiple fees for multiple reasons. 1 contract, 1 lump sum, that's it. I don't make very much money and Aaron was able to help me out greatly in figuring out a reasonable payment plan. I truly believed I was going to get screwed early on but we won.
Well lets just say I was knee deep in trouble from being too wild on New Years Eve. I supposedly did something very dumb and had no one to turn to for help. I was out of state and felt like I was never going to be able to get back to my home here in California. Luckily I was able to leave jail because of my clean record. Considering I had never had more than a speeding ticket, I felt so scared to be in the situation I was in. I got in contact with Aaron and he had my back since the first time I talked to him. This guy went above and beyond to get me out of the trouble that I was in. He made me feel like everything was going to work out and it did. He got me out of trouble and did it for a very reasonable price. I owe Aaron and his team a lot. If you have never been in trouble or even if you have make sure to go to Aaron, he's got your back through the whole process and he's not only a lawyer, he is a man of his word.
Aaron and his team were definitely a blessing in my life. They kept in contact with me and gave me hope to not give in to the pressure of facing half of a decade away from my children. Aaron is very knowledgeable and kept me informed of the laws regarding my case. I met with two other layers before Aaron and they basically told me to prepare for the worst. When I got to meet with Aaron he believed in my innocence and began pointing out flaws in the case immediately. This man definitely knows how to do his job and I will recommend him to anyone who needs good representation and the results they deserve according to our rights. Thank you for everything Aaron Pelley!
Aaron is a great advocate for medical marijuana patients and was able to get my charges dismissed in federal court. I couldn't have asked for a better result and I chalk it up to Aaron's experience and professionalism. I highly recommend his services!
Aaron is an AMAZING attorney...I had an issue that needed court clarification relative to my 2nd amendment rights. Throughout our engagement, Aaron was able to not only keep sensitive medical records sealed, but affirm my superior and rightful position through the seemingly (at-times) ambiguous court process. His positive relationship with prosecutors enables him to work both seamlessly and efficiently. I feel like I had a true advocate on my side who was advising / working for me -- and most importantly -- working in my best interests; his results speak for themselves. If you need someone who will fight for you - trust Aaron. Chris (his paralegal) is a true pleasure to work with as well!!
I hired Aaron on a medical marijuana related issue after the first attorney that I had hired, I didn't feel like was looking out for my best interest. Aaron was the total opposite. He spent as much time as needed talking to me in his office to get a clear picture as to what had happened and I was able to tell that he was really looking out for me. On my subsequent visits to his office, I was always amazed at how much more time and care he took with my case. My first attorney on this case just wanted to settle and told me that he didn't feel it would be wise to fight it. Well my gut instinct told me he was wrong and Aaron helped me prove my case and in the end we got an out of court settlement in my favor that got me everything that I wanted. This is the first attorney I've ever hired where I actually feel did his job and got my moneys worth so I highly recommend him to anyone with a medical marijuana issue.
Aaron is a very honest and competent attorney he goes above and beyond the call of duty. His knowledge of the law is excellent. His most valuable asset is his ability to call you back. When it comes to getting a hold of attorney's I have sat and waited, and waited, and waited. Not with Aaron it’s always a same day response or sooner. Thanks Aaron
Aaron took a Speeding ticket and reduced it to a "inattentive driving". This charge is not reported to your insurance. I'd recommend his services to anyone in a similar situation!! What a nice guy. He goes above and beyond what any other lawyer would normally do.
