    • I recommend Donald Winskill.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Winksill is an amazing attorney. He under promises and over delivers. I was facing 7 felony drug charges along with a firearm enhancement. Mr.Winskill was able to get all 7 charges dropped in exchange for me pleading guilty to a leaser non drug related felony. Furthermore, Don was able to convince the prosecutor to let me serve my sentence in an intensive probation program, in lieu of jail time. Last but not least, Mr.Winskill bargained with the courts and was able to get me back a car which was seized by police. Mr. Winskill is an excellent attorney, If I ever have the misfortune of having to go through the justice system again, there is no doubt as to whom I will be contacting.;

    It's hard to express sufficiently how much I owe to my attorney Don Winskill for what he did for me. I was facing a life sentence in prison if I had been convicted of the crimes that I was charged with. The case against me was staggering. Yet Mr. Winskill, through months of investigation, talking to witnesses and just basic hard work on his part was able to keep me out of jail completely! He was able to keep me calm during very trying times and when I saw him in court I was very impressed by the way he conducted himself which gave me even more confidence in the choice I had made by hiring him. I can never thank him enough.

    • I recommend Donald Winskill.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Winskill provided me with excellent service throughout the entire legal process. Donald's years of experience, passion for his work, and devotion to his clients place him in the top ranks of all attorneys in the State of Washington. It was very clear that he is extremely educated in Washington State law and also very well respected in the legal community. After months of fighting on my behalf with the states prosecutors office , he was able to get me the best case scenario for my legal situation. I am very thankful that I have him as my attorney and I highly recommend him without reservation.

    • I do not recommend Donald Winskill.

    He didn't put much effort on my case. Lost it when there was an option to win. Made me sign paperwork that trapped me for future fights.

    • I recommend Donald Winskill.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Child Abuse matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr Winskill saved me. He is direct and to the point in all communications I had with him. He never sugar coated anything with my case. I was always very clear on what was going on and the direction he was going to help me. Yes, he won my case. I will never be able to completely re-pay him for what he did for me. Mr Winskill is very knowledgable about the laws in our state and has a very strong work ethic. If I ever need help in the future, I hope Mr Windskill will be on my side.

    • I recommend Donald Winskill.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr Winskill represented me on a Divorce matter while I was out of state. Don was exceptional in keeping me informed on the proceeding and more importantly on options or strategies to which I could go. Mr Winskill had my Decree adjudicated in a speedy time limit. I was most satisfied with the outcome. Don resolved this in most equitable manner to which I was very pleased.

    On other matters, I've asked Don for advise on Criminal and Appellate matters. On both times he was on the mark with his advise and both times the cases came out in my favor. Both cases were dismissed without Prejudice or remanded for dismissal.

    On other occasions Mr Winskill has insight on Marine and Aviation law, to which again he again he is posseses outstanding competance to mitigate iegal issues with those fields of operation.

    Overall Mr Winskill is an exceptional attorney and knowledgeable on most common Criminal Defense specialties. His strengths are in exposing the details and presenting the chronology of the event. His questioning and analysis is indicative of strong cross-examination experiences in the court room. Don does this one on his first meeting with a client. Exceptional as previously stated.
