Jonathan Dichter

About me


OUR MISSION AT THE DICHTER LAW OFFICE: To provide the highest quality legal representation for individuals charged with DUI and DUI related offenses, as well as other minor traffic offenses, major felonies, and all areas of criminal law in general. 




Although law is my primary love, in my spare time, I also enjoy reading, writing (poetry and fiction), as well as being an improv comedian at a local theatre in Seattle and a performing magician.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working along side Mr. Dichter for the past 11 years. He is an outstanding attorney; well respected by judges, clients and peers. Mr. Dichter is an authority in the legal community as he often speaks at Continuing Legal Education Seminars, providing new and valuable material to other attorney attendees. His legal approach is always persuasive and realistic. Any criminal client would be lucky to have his representation.
