Arrested for a crime? We're here to help. You can put our experience of over 47 combined years of criminal trial work to fixing your legal issues. We are not fly-by-night, nor solo practitioners without support staff. We are an established and collaborative team committed to positive outcomes for clients, through written legal arguments, aggressive discovery demands and compelling defenses with the goal of getting cases dismissed.
Having been a Rule 9 Prosecutor for several municipalities over 12 years ago, and then a public defender, over several years I have built a solid and established reputation and attracted a team of attorneys who each have ample experience in defense on DUI's, criminal traffic cases and other types of criminal charges. We pride ourselves in obtaining the best results possible for clients through collaboration, which is not found with solo attorneys. Together we have represented between 1000 and 2000 clients on criminal traffic cases, a substantial figure. It is this experience that clients can expect to play out in our aggressive response to criminal charges and proposed license suspensions.
Our firm includes attorneys with former Appellate court experience, giving us good knowledge of the fine points of legal arguments. We also have over 100 jury trials under our belts, and because virtually every prosecutor's office in and around King County knows of our reputation as trial attorneys, the vast majority of clients are able to get stellar outcomes. We're here to help you.
Our services are solid and tangible, our legal fees are competitive with solo attorneys and we always take payment plans.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. James Egan is an excellent attorney. We had battled it out in a few trials close to 10 years ago when I was a prosecutor and he beat me every time. I have not won a trial against him to this day. And he has had acquittals on many other cases against other highly regarded attorneys which just goes to illustrate he is an attorney who really delivers great results for his clients. You can't go wrong with James Egan. He will fight hard for you. I recommend him without reservation.
