5.0 stars 7 totalReview Steven Thayer
I never imagined that I could ever be arrested for anything. I had actually been in law-enforcement for over 7 years when my bitter ex fiancé filed a false police report to get me fired. I was charged with 2 crimes on her "say so" alone.
I'd never heard of "Steven W. Thayer, PS. Criminal Defense Attorney". My parents searched frantically for "THE BEST" Criminal Defense attorney in Clark County WA, and they found Thayer. I was released AFTER HOURS on a Friday, and prior to officially retaining him.
Following an arrest, EVERYTHING is bad news & you won't want to hear any of it. Put your "big boy" pants on and trust in him & his team. Steve will give it to you straight. He will cut you off when you ramble. He may even slightly offend you.
Here's my advice:
"Suck it up buttercup"! He is a pro. He knows what he is doing. What he may lack in patience at times, his team will more than make up for. His daughter Jacy Thayer is also an incredible attorney. She has a big heart and is one of the most genuine people I've ever met. She actually gave me a hug when I posted bail. That caught me off guard but in my family a hug is always reassuring.
Steve's personal investigator Bill will go above and beyond to assist when necessary. Bill went to my home TWICE in a row (back to back) to retrieve a hand gun that had to be removed from my residence PRIOR to my release due to the allegations. He was given the wrong combo the first time but went right back anyway so I could come home.
The other people in the office are also very accommodating and forward messages along in a timely manner. Thank you Caity, thank you Betty! Having had my life turned inside out and upside down based on the words of an evil vindictive woman, I now understand why Criminal Defense Attorney's exist. I recommend Steve & his ENTIRE team to anybody that can afford him. He got all of my charges dropped after MULTIPLE "continuances" from both sides. Regardless of how long it takes or the sheer number of times that your trial gets postponed, remember these 2 things:
1. THEY are the best.
2. The more time that elapses, the more evidence they can uncover in your favor.
These people saved my life! I will never forget that! My whole family owes thanks from the bottom of our hearts: Steve, Jacy, & the team. You said that you were the best, and you truly were!

Steve enjoys his work, and is good at it. We asked a longtime family friend who practices in Idaho for a good Attorney in Vancouver and Steve's name was ultimately provided with the phrase, "Probably the best in the North West region."

He's great. Very wise and intelligent attorney. This whole thing was a complete nightmare, and Steve got us our life back. From day one he was confident that he could win our case if not one way it would be another and he did just that. Thanks Steve YOUR THE BEST!!!

I can not thank Steve enough for his knowledge of the law and compassion he has shown me. I am a mother that had a psychotic episode and was facing serious charges. He not only got my case dismissed he saved my family from disjustice.
Thank you Steve

Steve represented me on a very serious criminal case where I was potentially looking a several years in prison. The ultimate result was a plea bargain to a single misdemeanor with probation. I was pleased and thankful with the result. Steve kept me informed every step of the way on my case that took over a year to resolve. He was helpful in explaining the process and truly cared about me and the outcome of the case. You need an attorney who will fight to protect your rights from the overreaching criminal justice system. Steve and his staff were there for me.

I am a local Law Enforcement Officer, located here in the Portland metro area & I was falsely accused of a domestic violence crime. Upon finding myself arrested and thrown into this horrible, and very scary situation I turned to the BEST attorney's money can buy. Mr. Thayer and his dedicated team, helped me get a NOT GUILTY verdict when we took the case to jury trial.
Please, take it from me, (as a Police Officer, with several years on the job), if you ask any Police Officer in SW Washington about Steve Thayer they would tell you that Steve is one of the best attorneys in Washington. I would also bet that they would tell you that if they got in trouble, like I did, they would want Mr. Thayer on their side!!!!!!
