    • I recommend David Gehrke.
    • I hired David more than 3 years ago.
    • David handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was really impressed when I called David Gehrke's offices on the holidays and they had an attorney call me from his cell phone. David Gehrke gave us a consultation that was professional, genuine, and made me feel like he really felt that he had my best interest at heart. He is well spoken, straight forward, and a nice guy. I have worked with other attorneys in the past, but the service I was given from David and his team was by far the best experience I have had so far.

    My husband is an executive for a large corporation and was recently charged with a DUI. Mr. Gehrke handled his case in a professional and highly knowledgable manner. He put us at ease and we were happy with the outcome of my husband's case.....In fact we were extremely pleased!

    Mr. Gehrke was recommended through a bail bonds company after my son was charged with intent to sell. I appreciate his honesty, promptness and work he did for my son. Sometimes you need to spend that extra money for the work that an attorney will do for your case. I would highly recommend Mr. Gehrke because of his attentiveness to our case. Mr Gehrke actually speaks one on one with you and LISTENS to what you have to say, and yes reads into what you said.

    I have had two years experience with the Pierce County Court system and believe me you need to have an attorney who is willing to help you. The appointed attorneys are so busy there is not enough time for them to hear you. Yes I would recommend Mr. Gehrke for a criminal defense attorney.

    David was recommended to me through a bail bonds company after I was charged with a felony, and in speaking with me he made it clear to me if he was going to help me, I had to be willing to help myself as well.
    So I agreed and David pursued and won a fantastic deal for me on my charges, which were all bundled up, as I had outstanding cases in 3 courts.
    I have since served the time (minimal!), won a settlement which he fought for me and won, and when it came down to payment, David was EXTREMELY fair.
    He is respected in the court, which makes a HUGE difference in your defense.

    i had a felony charge that involved 3 other people, everyone else's lawyer told them to take to felony that there was no way to get a better deal. Dave was sure that he could help me. All of my friends time and time again would tell me that its a lost cause that i cant get a better deal. 3 days before my final court date, Dave calls me and tells me, " this friday you got 2 options. You can either plead guilty to the felony, or you can plead guilty to the misdemeanor.." i was like WHAT????

    in short, Dave can work nothing short of miricals, using his extensive knowledge and connections. I highly recommend this great guy, i don't have anything bad to say about him.

    In fact, he charged me only a fraction of what my co defendent paid for his felony!!

    You are in good hands with Dave Gehrke
