George was patient. He wasn't the best communicator to me, but that's probably part of his plan. He got cased dismissed, although I doubted him. I would recommend him to any friend

About a year ago, I began the long and stressful process that comes after an arrest for DUI. I hired George Bianchi as my legal counsel and have been overly impressed throughout my experience with him. I am from Louisiana and had to travel back and forth throughout the process. Mr. Bianchi worked tirelessly for countless hours guiding me through the process and preparing for my defense. He corresponded with me regularly and kept me up to date on what was going on. He overly impressed me on his attention to detail and his knowledge of the law. He exemplifies professionalism and is very kind and courteous. His dedication to his clients , his vast knowledge of the law, his steadfast determination to fight every second for his client's best interest, is only a few of the many reasons that Mr. Bianchi won my case. I would recommend no one else at aid you in your DUI defense. Mr. Bianchi is without a doubt the best in Seattle.

Our son was pulled over for a DUI at age 17. Mr. Bianchi was amazing. He talked directly to our son and was very clear about what this meant to our son and his future. For that alone, thank you George! George was extremely articulate and knowledgeable, and able to clearly explain exactly what the many possible outcomes might be and what we needed to be prepared for. There was massive information shared at our initial meeting and George was very patient in explaining it all, as well as providing documentation for us to take home, so we could read it again when we weren't so overwhelmed by everything.
George listened very carefully to what our son had to say about what happened, was well versed in what the police report said and very straightforward in letting us know what the possible strengths and weaknesses of the case were. He was there for all the court hearings and made sure we knew what to expect and what the results meant. His staff was also extremely helpful in scheduling matters and answering any last minute questions we had.
George also handled the separate DOL hearing, providing DOL with information he obtained through his experts to support our side. End result - DUI lowered to a Neg.1 driving charge and the DOL DISMISSED the suspension charges.
This was literally the first time our son had gotten in trouble. George took the time to connect with our son, make him VERY aware of what the consequences of another DUI would be and I cannot recommend him highly enough. His knowledge of current case law and the court system is unparalleled and he knocked it out of the park for us. We hope we never have to see him again professionally - but would not hesitate to call him again if the need arose.
Thank you, George!
