5.0 stars 52 totalReview Andrea Robertson
I highly recommend Andrea Robertson. People I spoke to before selecting an attorney suggested that I needed someone that would be the loudest, argue the most, and be the biggest jerk in the room. What I realized after hiring Andy was what you need is the smartest person in the room. Andy was so knowledgeable about and committed to my individual situation. She was very realistic with outcomes and possibilities and communicated them to me regularly. She is very tied into and knowledgeable about what is going on at a very detailed level with certain judges, prosecutors and cases, and she reached out to her large group of attorneys to find out current details, sometimes in real time. She is very respected by prosecutors and judges.
I can't tell you how grateful and happy I am to have found Ms. Robertson. Over the past 2 years Andy has worked relentlessly to help get my 2nd DUI charge in less than 2 years reduced to 30 days stay at home monitoring. Throughout the whole process she never faltered in her professionalism or effort to get the best possible outcome for me and my family. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Andy!
I was charged with assault after an altercation in a road rage incident. I have a clean record, which I really didn’t want tarnished. I really didn’t want a public defender to represent me, and so decided to go with a private attorney who had a proven track record. I used Avvo to look up attorneys in Seattle who specialized in domestic violence cases, and found Andy. After reading so many positive reviews, I decided to stop by her office and do a free consultation. She was the first on my list of four attorneys who I had picked so I was able to choose the best one. After the first twenty minutes and based on the questions she asked me, I knew I did not need to go through a selection process. It was obvious she was going to be the best choice, so I decided to skip the other consultations and commit to having her represent me. Money was a little tight but she was willing to work with me on a payment plan to pay the retainer. She did a great job at gathering evidence in the event we needed to go to trial, but in the end she was able to get the charges dropped by doing a civil compromise. I never felt any pressure from her to avoid trial, and always felt like I was in control of my options. Trial could have taken a very long time, but instead we were able to come to a quick and simple resolution, thus avoiding trial altogether. I am forever grateful to Andy for her dedication, and high level of professionalism. My record is still clean and I now have an attorney I can refer to my friends and family, with confidence that they will receive great care and protection from someone I trust. Thanks Andy!
Andy is beyond the best Lawyer that a person could have when unfortunate events happen in your life. My case was very messy and Andy stepped up with her compassion, care and honesty through very trying times. Andy provided the best advice and worked above and beyond to prove that I was not the person that the system was stating. If I had one call to make to a Lawyer I would defiantly call Andy for help.

In October 2014 I was arrested for a DUI which also involved a collision with a parked car. I found Andy on this website and she was able to immediately meet with me and represent me in court the next day, on a Saturday no less. She thoroughly explained all the steps required to get the best possible outcome, including action items for me to do. Never did I feel like I didn't know what was going to happen next, and I was never surprised at any of the legal processes. I appreciated the upfront pricing of her fees, it was helpful in this stressful situation not having to worry what the bill would be at the end. The resources she recommends for required services and evaluations are excellent. Her office communicates brilliantly. She's smart and hard working! She diligently looked at my case from every possible angle, keeping me well informed at every step. She was able to reduce my DUI charge to Reckless Driving, which I never dreamed was possible. From start to finish she made an extremely embarrassing and horrible time of my life more bearable. She's kind and non-judgmental. There isn't a better attorney in Seattle, and I recommend her whole heartedly.

Andy represented me following a 4th of July incident involving the planned target shooting of pistols with my friends at a piece of wood on a private and secluded beach. Cutting to the chase, the police arrived, handcuffed us, and released us mentioning we would soon be receiving a summons to appear in court. A very sobering experience as none of us would have ever dreamed this could ever happen in our lifetimes. So, in searching out a lawyer Andy was recommended by another attorney. Andy was through, caring and compassionate. I was having a very difficult time getting through this---she mentioned one thing that sustained me. She said, "you will get through this and come out the other side." I kept telling myself that "these things happen to other people, not a finance guy who plays in an orchestra and was a regular church goer." The event caused me to question the element most dear to me---my character. Andy helped me though that as well and was a lantern of hope at lowest point in my life. In the end, my case was dismissed and I did not even need to go to court on the final day---but did so anyway to support my 2 other friends. On all levels, I cannot recommend her enough---engaged in the case, supportative, exceptionally smart and caring!! I wish her all the best in her career.

I could not recommend Andy more! I was extremely impressed with not only her extensive knowledge of the law and presence in the courtroom, but also her empathy and understanding of my situation. I always felt well informed and there were never any significant surprises that Andy did not already anticipate. Her creativity and ability to adapt on the fly was amazing, and I have no doubt that I would not have gotten the favorable outcome I did without her expert representation. Her work ethic and preparation speak for themselves, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my colleagues, friends or family. Whatever your legal needs are, do yourself a favor and hire Andy to represent you.

I was arrested for a DUI in early 2013 and lost my CDL and was facing losing my job. I contacted Andrea Robertson and met with her promptly. Immediately I was impressed by her compassion to my case and she was more than informative about what I was facing legally and what my actions should be during this time. Never once was I unsure about what the next step should be and I never felt surprised by any legal action taken. She advised me of the proper steps to take and what the court would see as favorable. My case was dropped to a wreckless driving from a DUI. I had a high BAC and plenty of evidence against me; she worked diligently on my behalf every step of the way to fight for my case. From the bottom of my heart I am thankful for the representation of Andrea Robertson and staff on my behalf! I strongly recommend Andrea Robertson to represent YOU as a client!! Thank you so much Andrea!!

Very knowledgeable lawyer with the big heart. Andy is not the lawyer that just wants to get hired and extract your money (like so many lawyers do) - she predicted everything that happened and gave me really good advice.

I would highly recommend Andy Robertson as a DUI defense attorney. Without having much experience with attorneys, I expected her to be merely someone who would represent me in the courtroom. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong. She was empathetic, understanding, and I really felt she was an advocate for me. In addition to those characteristics, I found Andy to be professional, thorough, and knowledgeable about the legal process and my rights. She was great at breaking down the legal jargon to something more understandable and really seemed to know the political nuances that come with each judge. Choosing Andy will provide some peace of mind to you during a likely stressful time.
