5.0 stars 163 totalReview Jonathan Rands
Dealing with a DUI charge is an incredibly difficult and embarrassing situation to deal with...and I couldn't have done it without Jonanthan Rands. Jonathan did an outstanding job with my case. From day one, Jonathan was professional and always made me feel like I was a priority. He is extremely knowledgable on all fronts which really gave me a sense of hope in what feels like a hopeless situation. Jonathan made sure that everything we needed to do was done efficiently and well in advance. He navigated me through the litany of things that have to be done and was available 24/7 for any question I had. In the end, we were about as successful as one can be with a first time DUI charge that was reduced to the bare minimum charge. While this was undoubtedly one of the worst times of my life Jonathan made it bearable and got me the best possible end result. I highly recommend Jonanthan! He is the best man for the job in the Bellingham area!
It only takes ONE poor decision and all you have been working for so hard throughout your entire life could be ruined...Yes, I said "could be" if you would make another bad decision and pick a wrong attorney. That night I was charged for DUI, I thought that it was the end of my life. It still feels sometimes as it was just a bad dream, and even thought the intensity of the drama decreased with time, this sad experience has placed itself deep in my heart. Today, I take it only as a blessing just to remember how fortune I am in my life but also how unexpected and fragile this life can be. This being said, I believe things happen for reason, and despite the circumstances, I believe that everyone deserves a second chance to prove that this first time was a pure accident.
As a highly educated person, and I am proud to say that prior the incident, my life was very successful and fulfilled on both levels - personal and professional. The good news is that it still is, and that's thank to wonderful and amazing Mr. Rands. After the big fall, the only fall, the unnecessary fall, for the very first time I had doubts...As a successful and serious athlete since childhood thus a mentor and an inspiration for others, I partly lost my confidence and I felt like I could never bring my life back on the same valuable and powerful level. Mr. Rands blew the dark, unsecured and uncertain clouds away from my head, and brought me back on my feet by his professional actions. Mr. Rand is, without discussion, the best attorney you can ask for. He is not only extremely professional in his work ethics but also very detailed, thorough, responsible, brilliant, effective, reliable, communicative, approachable, respectful, caring and extremely knowledgeable. From the very first meeting, my heart told me I was safe. What's important is that the incident happened at the end of my medical school, and it was very crucial to me to be able to complete the program and be able to take a national boards exam. Without Mr. Rands, I most likely wouldn't be holding this professional licence in my hands right now. Mr. Rands listens. Mr.Rands acts. Two most critical features of top professionals in any department. I will never forget when Mr. Rands replied this to one of my concerns, "I want you to focus on your school and exams. Please, leave all the rest to me." Mr. Rands has no idea how much his warm, caring and truly devoted yet classy professional attitude toward his clients positively effects human's nervous system (emotions and stress). He has a remarkable ability to work with people and calm them down.
Today, I am very proud and happy to share my opinion with you because I am as strong and valuable person as I was before the incident. If you care about your life, if you have goals you are working towards, and if you want to believe again, I strongly recommend Mr. Rands' services.
He shines not only with his unbelievable knowledge and professionalism but also with his incredible people skills. You DO WANT to have an attorney who makes you feel like your case is the only case he has, and you are his brother or sister. He fights for you, and best of all, he knows how...You walk into his office for first time with your head down and tears in your eyes, and you leave his office with a big smile on your face.
Well, according to people, my smile is healing and contagious. so Mr. Rands I can't thank you enough for bringing it back on my face so I can continue healing others :)
Jonathan immediately put me at ease with his knowledge of the law and the process we were about to enter. He took a highly charged and emotional situation for me a reduced it easy to understand steps and possible outcomes. He told me the truth and never surprised me with unexpected bad news either monetary or penal.
We agreed on a course of action, he executed each step and we got our desired result.
I am very pleased I hired him and recommend Jonathan Rands and his team (thanks Carrie Moody) to anyone needing a DUI Attorney in Whatcom County.
Well...I made the mistake of having that one extra bev, got pulled over for speeding and ended up in jail with a DUI charge for blowing .10. First time in jail-50 something male-professional career for past 20 plus years in Bellingham. Really crappy situation. BUT, Jonathan came to my rescue. He showed up the morning after jail and knew exactly what to do and say to the judge. I am extremely glad that I hired him and his staff to represent me. He took a scary situation and got me through it fairly unscathed. Will I ever hire him to represent me again? Nope! Only because I will never ever be in that situation again :-)
Bottom line, he was very professional in all aspects and his staff was extremely organized and...kind. I highly recommend him!
I was arrested after a wedding on a DUI charge. I will admit without Uber in Bellingham I made a poor choice and drove. While I was in jail next to "Bubba" my business partner in Austin Texas looked online for a lawyer that had the best reviews and found Jonathan Rands. We have two company lawyers in Texas that don't hold a candle to how well Jonathan runs his business from start to finish. I just sat back and watched him work his magic. It was astonishing how he found holes in the arrest and got my charges basically dropped. For how bad the situation could have been it really was nothing but a slap on the wrist. You have two choices you can hire the shitty lawyer that wears cheap suits and ends up costing you in court fines and bad time billed. Or you can hire Jonathan who has a set fee for the whole process. There are literally no surprise costs. If you end up in my situation you can personally email me and I will be a reference for Jonathan. Thanks Jonathan hope to not see you again unless you move to Texas and start doing business law!!!!

You want quality you gotta pay for it! Jonathan rands is pricey but his work, organization and relationship within the courts is something worth paying more to get the best results possible. You want results he is the man to get them! He also has ways to work with you payment wise. He is the people's lawyer who want/need good results, definetley recomend him. Just visit his office and you feel the positive vibes all around. Secretaries are nice and helpful.
Stop wasting time, make a consultation and see for yourself!!! you'll know he's the man for the job as soon as you walk into the office as I did.

Jonathan knew exactly how to deal with my case and kept me informed of the legal procedures as they occurred. He saved me money in fines and got me the deal I wanted. I highly recommend Jonathan for any DUI related offenses.

Jonathan and his team were awesome. I was overwhelmed when I got my DUI about navigating the courtime system and DOL. They took care of everything and it was a huge relief.
Anytime I had a question, they had the answer! I was able to communicate via email, text or phone. If you are busy and need peace of mind, get professional help, Jonathan is the right choice!

This was my first time going through any type of court proceedings and i was very intimidated and scared by the process... until i met Jonathan Rands. He helped me through every step of the process, he kept me informed on everything and helped me to calm down and actually understand what was happening. His staff was beyond helpful and understanding, each person who worked for him made me feel like a real person, a good person. I had experiences before i met Jonathan Rands, with another lawyer, who made me feel awful about what was happening. They made me feel so much guilt, where Jonathan and his staff made me truly feel like, yes i made a mistake but mistakes happen and it doesn't define who i am as a person. If anything ever happened to me again, there would be no hesitation he would be the person i called immediately.
Not only did he make me feel taken care of and that he would help me, i got the best outcome i could have with the charges against me. Also he made the court proceedings as painless as possible by talking me through each one so i could relax and understand what was happening and why. I always felt like i could talk to him and that no question was too small or silly. He made me at ease and he was a pleasure to work with. Fantastic lawyer, wonderful people skills, wonderful staff, and a superb office as well.
I have nothing even remotely negative to say about him or his company. I would recommend him instantly.
i cant thank him and his fantastic staff enough. A+++++

Referred through Padula and Associates, my case regarding a BC driving license suspension while crossing the US border was handled quickly and effectively without my presence being required.
I'm so glad I hired Jonathan vs settling with the offer that the Prosecution had presented.
