About Me

My goal is to provide aggresive competent, compassionate and timely legal representation to you and your loved ones. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you and to discuss how I can be of service. I am a sole practitioner located in Bellingham, Washington. I have been practicing criminal defense almost exclusively for 17 years, with extensive experience with DUI/DWI cases and related criminal traffic and licensing issues as well as more serious criminal charges. One of the leading complaints about lawyers is their failure to return calls and answer emails.  You will never have to wait more than 48 hours for me to return a phone call or email!  Please call for a free consultation.

    I have known Mr. Brodsky for the past ten years. Prior to him relocating to Bellingham we used to work together in Snohomish County. Mike has no fear when it comes to courtrooms or legal issues. I refer all of the Bellingham area cases that come to our office to Mike and I assure all of those clients that they are in great hands because of his skills as an advocate and his knowledge of the local court rules.

    This gentleman has an awesome courtroom style that wows the socks of judges and juries. He has a wealth of knowledge and a strong wit that makes him one of the best criminal defense attorneys I know. He is my friend and I am proud to know Mike Brodsky.
