I really enjoy what I do! However, I am old school and prefer to actually talk to people rather than emailing back and forth. I believe in actual face to face or voice contact, where I can answer questions or help out otherwise. I have been in the same location for twenty years, across the street from the courthouse in Downtown Tacoma. I also am privileged to have helped out many other attorneys with their court cases. My results speak for themselves through what my clients say about me.
In my off time, I enjoy traveling to Europe (I am from Germany), I have a small farm that I enjoy working on, and I collect vintage guitars and old toy trains. I also like old german cars. I am married with two wonderful daughters. I have lived and worked in Tacoma for the past twenty+ years.
Professionally, I have served on our local Bar association as a trustee from 2011 to 2013. Additionally, I am on the Lawyerpalooza Committee, which puts on a big BBQ/party at my farm for our Pierce County Bar Association. I have served on other things too in the past, I just can't remember what they are right now.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I've tried approximately 300 jury trials. On only one did I have co-counsel, and on that one, my co-counsel was Martin Duenhoelter. Martin is an excellent attorney, and an all around great guy. Together we made a formidable team. If I missed something, Martin was there to cover for me. During our work together he proved to be an impressive trial attorney. I am also aware of his reputation in the legal community as someone who does an excellent job on behalf of both his traffic and criminal clients. Martin knows his way around Pierce County courtrooms as well as any attorney that I know. Without hesitation I recommend him to anyone in need of legal services in Pierce County, be it a traffic ticket or criminal charge.

I regularly see Mr. Duenhoelter is the South Puget Sound traffic courts in which I appear. He is always legally extremely well prepared, his arguments are very well presented, and he knows the courts, the judges and the prosecutors. I can heartily endorse this attorney.
