Our son was pulled over for a DUI at age 17. Mr. Bianchi was amazing. He talked directly to our son and was very clear about what this meant to our son and his future. For that alone, thank you George! George was extremely articulate and knowledgeable, and able to clearly explain exactly what the many possible outcomes might be and what we needed to be prepared for. There was massive information shared at our initial meeting and George was very patient in explaining it all, as well as providing documentation for us to take home, so we could read it again when we weren't so overwhelmed by everything.
George listened very carefully to what our son had to say about what happened, was well versed in what the police report said and very straightforward in letting us know what the possible strengths and weaknesses of the case were. He was there for all the court hearings and made sure we knew what to expect and what the results meant. His staff was also extremely helpful in scheduling matters and answering any last minute questions we had.
George also handled the separate DOL hearing, providing DOL with information he obtained through his experts to support our side. End result - DUI lowered to a Neg.1 driving charge and the DOL DISMISSED the suspension charges.
This was literally the first time our son had gotten in trouble. George took the time to connect with our son, make him VERY aware of what the consequences of another DUI would be and I cannot recommend him highly enough. His knowledge of current case law and the court system is unparalleled and he knocked it out of the park for us. We hope we never have to see him again professionally - but would not hesitate to call him again if the need arose.
Thank you, George!

In addressing a troubling legal matter concerning my son, I turned to George Bianchi for guidance as I had worked with him on another matter 9 years earlier following several positive referrals. In the earlier matter I was impressed with his no nonsense approach, his detailed attention to my concerns including the costs associated with his efforts and throughout the process I was kept informed as to the options before me, the costs and the likely outcome. In that earlier matter and then again most recently, I was both impressed and fully satisfied with the manner in which he managed the process and the outcome of the final ruling. George Bianchi is a great attorney and I am fortunate to have chosen to work with him on both of my cases.

George is the person you need to work with when you've put yourself in a situation requiring the best defense that you can find.
I've required his help more than once with ciminal/felony diving charges and the threat of significant jail time and felony conviction. The outcome has always been far better than expected, including complete dismissal of charges and reduction of charges to a relatively minor offense. Additionally, the Department of Liscensing hearings that you face, and rarely win, were overcome.
I owe the ability to continue my life without the financial hardship, time away from work, inability to drive, possibity of losing job, etc., that are all common when convicted of a DUI/Criminal charge.
The attorneys I work with are truly amazed of what George was able to do after reviewing my situation. His knowledge of the courts, proceedings, and years in the legal community honing his skill all combine to provide a truly amazing possibility when considering your potential outcomes.
I reccomend him to anyone in need of the best legal help you can get.
He handles his cases personally and I never felt part of a "cattle call" that you see promoted by so many other attorneys looking to get your business and put you in line with the rest of their huge list. Any good attorney knows they can only effectively defend a reasonable work load. The idea of using a firm that refers my future to their assistants is ludicrous considering the penalties.
Thank You George!!!!!!

George helped me through several DUI hearings going on at the same time. Having George as representation gave me comfort in an otherwise very scary time in my life. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, dedicated, and down to earth. George is a straight shooter, which I found helpful when faced with a lot of uncertainty.

George represented me in a complex case that lasted close to 1 1/2 years, but it was worth it. He knows how to play the game, and was a strong fighter for what I wanted. He was very dedicated in serving my interests and is extremely knowledgable. Not only does he do an exceptional job as a DUI lawyer, but he also is a good educator (by this I mean that he was able to teach me about the law, the legal system, explain the process of things, what they mean, the terminology, etc.). After having him represent me, I feel as though I have learned a lot about DUI's, the legal process, consequences, and how to go about fighting one! He is one of the top lawyers in Seattle and is worth every penny of it. George also knows many of the prosecuting attorneys and judges (and has positive relationships with them), which is a HUGE advantage in fighting a DUI in Seattle. He and his assistant are great to work with and are flexible in accomodating scheduling and meeting times. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat, as his specialty is DUI.
