"The Marshall Defense Firm is very thorough and professional. They are "straight to the point" to make sure there is no confusion.
Attorney Aimee Sutton explained the process of what she would do and what I could expect. There was no judgment on what I was going through. She was always available by either email, phone or face-to-face.
I would definitely recommend Attorney Aimee Sutton and The Marshall Defense Firm to anyone I think might need their assistance."

I, and members of my family, had never been involved or needed to work with a criminal defense attorney. So, when we had to seek assistance for criminal litigation, we had no idea of what to do, who to speak with or where to go. I discussed this with a friend who is a civil law attorney, and he suggested that I contact David Marshall at The Marshall Defense Firm.
I met with David Marshall who listened intently to me while I described my situation. After our conversation, David recommended that I work with attorney Kristina Selset of his firm.
Kristina was “bullet proof” (Kevlar). Whenever I had a question or concern, I would call Kristina and she would always answer the phone. She took time to listen to all of my questions and shared of lot of information with me. Also during this time, David Marshall stayed in touch with me to make sure everything went well.
I can’t say anything negative about David and Kristina. I had a great experience working with them both and would recommend the Marshall Defense Firm to any of my family members and friends.

I was accused of child abuse of a family member. It was the most devastating event of my life. I contacted David Marshall for guidance and advice. He was extremely helpful and brought much peace of mind knowing that he was representing me. Professional and showing genuine concern. I would highly recommend Mr. Marshall.

What you know to be true, and what you can prove, are entirely two different matters. In a case of child abuse, you are guilty until you can prove your innocence. Make no mistake. YOU will need to work hard to help defend yourself in this type of case. David will turn over every rock and conduct extensive interviews, in order to find valuable information needed to help you defend your rights and reputation. If he cannot find it, he will tell you. This will help you to make a decision that is best for you and your family. David receives respect from prosecutors, and Judges, throughout Washington State. This will help put you in a better position for negotiations, whether you are guilty or innocent of the charges. I was faced with up to 7-10 years in prison, on charges with no merit. Because of the quality work David put into my case, I was able to negotiate reduced charges and completed my jail sentence in 6 months. I chose not to risk trial, and was able to continue my life with my family and friends. If you have found yourself accused of child abuse, I highly recommend you contact Mr. Marshall.

A disgusting charge that took away my career even when the case investigation phase was not yet completed. With David at my side the state dropped the original charges the first day of trial. Unfortunately our society has deemed the charged guilty until proven innocent. David will be your advocate, he is very detailed oriented and professional.

David is the first lawyer I ever consulted with and he made our meeting very relaxed and not intimidating at all. He made me feel at ease with all my concern and answered all my questions honestly. He definitely knows what he's talking about. It's good to know that I have someone like him on my side if I ever need a lawyer.

David Marshall was highly recommended to us by another attorney. What a great recommendation that was! When we first met David, we were immediately impressed with his knowledge, expertise, and kindness. Throughout our work with him, he was responsive, respectful, and strategic. He was one of two attorneys we worked with and together they achieved a very satisfactory outcome for us - and we are grateful to them. We definitely highly recommended David Marshall.

I was falsely accused of sexual abuse, am a male childcare Director\
Owner, this situation was very stressful for me because I knew I didn’t do anything. The police and the agencies that were investigating this situation treated me as if I was guilty before they even knew all the facts concerning the situation. So I hired Mr. Marshall as my attorney to ensure my rights were protected and that I would be treated fairly. When I meet with him I found that he was very knowledgeable in the field and he had a genuine concern about helping people who have been falsely accused. Mr. Marshall was very thorough in his approach he immediately got to work on my case, by making phone call to the police and sending prudent information to the different agencies involved in this matter. He connected me with a polygraphed person who was equally knowledgeable in his field. Mr. Marshall Staff was very helpful and always kept me informed about my case. The end result was the case never went to trail and it was found unfounded by CPS office. In addiction I had monies left over from my retainer fee and received a full refund and detailed information concerning how my money was spent. I will urge anyone going through this type of situation to give him a call.

This was a CPS case. Mr Marshall was more focused on money than on the case. When I found out that he did not understand the shortcomings of CPS or how they function, I decided to cut my loses which by that time were in excess of $5000 and included several missed opportunities. I would definitely not recommend this attorney for a case with CPS or DSHS unless you have a lot of money, a lot of patience and are willing to do a lot of reading and educate your attorney yourself.

I used David Marshall 10 years ago. I was charged with a crime and David acted as my defense attorney. We fought my case for more than a year, reaching a plea bargain. Though the outcome was not what we’d hoped, I had no complaint about Mr. Marshall’s representation.
I was always kept informed, invited to attend every hearing, even those that were optional on my part. I was given copies of all written records to review and he was always there to answer any questions. I had plenty as this was the first time I’d ever had any dealings with the court. This diligence was instrumental in correcting several errors in the records.
David had the admirable quality of making me feel as though I were his only client. I never felt rushed or that he was in a hurry to be elsewhere.
I was anxious, depressed and more and David knew the right things to say to get me through it. He was skilled in leading me to more rational thinking.
If I had any complaints, it would be in not being fully informed of the future consequences of the then “new law” I was being charged under. I’m now living with them and wish I’d understood more 10 years ago. Nobody’s perfect, and it is what it is.
David became more than an attorney. We corresponded throughout my prison term and have met again since I got out. I consider him a friend.
He is a skilled litigator (in my opinion) is considerate and calm in what were difficult times.
I would recommend David S. Marshall, whether you’re guilty or not. He’ll work for you.
