I had to write a review for Kurt or he has been by far, the best lawyer I have ever worked with.
Kurt was always there working hard for me when I applied to get a pardon from Governor Christine Gregoire for several felonies that I had committed almost 9 years ago now. he saw my case as one worth fighting for. I remember he called my story a "good faith effort" story. I had made mistakes when I had hit a rock bottom in my life but he saw the potential in me and realized I was not the person behind those mistakes. He also believed in me,,,...told me I had come a long way from where I was and that no matter what , he was going to take my case all the way to Olympia and make this pardon work for me.
There had been a point where I was running low on money to offer and he continued to work on my case, staying 100% dedicated to me as a client. The happy ending did come for me in January of 2013.
Christine Gregoire granted me an unconditional, full pardon the day she left office. If it hadn't been for Kurts dedication to my case and all his hard work and effort, I would not be where I am today. I can now look for the work I deserve. I worked hard at school and am now able to use my gifts and talents to help others in tough situations.
But it's all because of Kurt. He is tops, number one in my book and I would recommend him to anyone trying a criminal conviction. he will dedicate himself to you and fight hard for if he feels you deserve to be fought for.

I hired Kurt to assist me in vacating a previous Felony conviction as well as restore my firearms rights. The process was quick and easy and he was very straightforward not guaranteeing me anything (which is exactly what I wanted). What a relief to finally put a horrible event behind me for good.

What do you do when you have an employee in Kansas City, Missouri that had a previous indiscretion in Seatle, Washington? Did I mention he is hispanic and spoke broken English.
We had tried in vain to determine exactly what our employee had done wrong over 16 years ago. He was a minor, couldn't speak English, and could not remember what exactly were the charges against him. Clearly this was a mess and we had failed miserably in an attempt to help him. We contacted some helpful person in Seatle, to this date I do not know whom reccommended Kurt. But, I do believe it was a miracle. It could have been someone in the filing department or someone who answered the phone somewhere that said call Kurt Bennett. At some point we spoke to Kurt Bennett. Because Kurt works from his heart he was willing to listen to our plight. "We have an employee, had some problems, we need help, and oh by the way we live in Kansas City, Missouri.
We talked with Kurt many, many times. He worked feverishly for someone he had never met and only had spoken with a well meaning employer. In the end we prevailed thru the tireless effort of Kurt Bennett. It was like he just didn't understand "it can't be done." He kept putting one foot in front of the other time and time again. We made at least two trips to Seatle for hearings. When it came to his knowledge of the law and what to do, he was spot on. The whole story of course is much longer and I am horrible at condensing, so I will finish with a heartfelt thanks and a complete endorsement of his skills and knowledge. I have faith in this man as a lawyer but more importantly I have faith in him as a man.
If you are looking for someone to represent you, there is not a finer lawyer anywhere. He is commited to represent you and find a solution. God bless him, as he blessed our situation!
