About Me

Greetings. My name is Steve Krupa and I've been practicing law since 1994. My main areas of practice are criminal defense including Military, Federal, DUI, Domestic Violence and felony charges, and white collar civil litigation defense. I also work on selected personal injury, and federal and state whistle blower claims.I've tried cases throughout Western Washington and in United States and Military Courts.


In addition, I proudly serve my country as a USAR JAG Officer and I have years of experience in military criminal law and adverse administrative proceedings. This experience allows me to understand and meet the unique needs of military personnel and dependents in criminal and civil matters.


My goal has always been to give all of my clients the personal service they deserve. I'd like to put my experience to work for you. Please feel free to contact my office for a free consultation.
