Review Charles Johnston

About Me

Charles (Chuck)  was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. He graduated from the University of Washington and received his JD from Seattle University in 1978. He has been practicing law, specializing in criminal defense in both State and Federal Courts since 1979. 

Chuck has fought aggressively for citizens accused of every crime, from murder to drugs and alcohol-related offenses throughout Washington State.  ?Chuck is respected for his experience at trial and his proven results have earned him a reputation for excellence and providing exceptional service.

Chuck also assists those with family law issues, including divorce, custody and support/maintenance issues.

Chuck and his team, Kim Kohn, paralegal/office administrator/notary public  and Mike Baldassin, investigator, bring passion and concern to every case, criminal and family.  They see and care about their clients as people, not just cases. 

If you or a loved one is being investigated, have been arrested or charged with a crime, or is facing a family law issue, seek the experienced counsel of Charles A. Johnston.
