I was born and raised in Moscow, USSR. I came to USA in 2000. I started practicing as a criminal defense attorney in 2004, while in the Third year of Law School. I am licensed to practice law in all Courts in the State of Washington in 2005.

I worked as a public defender for Northwest Defenders Association from 2004-2018. I have extensive experience representing clients against felony charges in King County Superior Courts from filing to verdict. I have taken a wide variety of felony cases ranging from murder to white collar crimes to trial. I have many years of experience negotiating deals for clients who did not want to endure uncertainty that comes with the jury trials.

I have jail clearance and have access to incarcerated clients. I have represented  many clients in alternative courts such as Mental Health Court, Drug Diversion Court and Veteran's Court in King County District and Superior Courts. I have extensive experience in interviewing alleged victims in Domestic Violence and Sex Cases involving Minor Children, as well as interviewing Law Enforcement Officers and hostile civilian witnesses. I have extensive experience in jury selection and presentation of expert testimony at trial. 

I truly believe that every client is innocent of something, and I make it my mission to get my clients the best result possible in each individual case. I also believe that “Speedy Trial Right” should never be waived without a good reason.

I am fluent in Russian.

The Best
Evgeniya was the answer to many prayers. My family member had gone through multiple attorneys because of conflicts of interest and eventually he had the opportunity to be represented by Attorney Mordekhova. She was amazing from beginning to end! She went above and beyond, always keeping him informed, digging deeper than any other attorney and communicating regularly not only with him but with our family as well. While at court hearings she was called for multiple other cases which was surprising because for the amount of energy she put in to his case I assumed that was the only one she was currently working on. She was respected in the courtroom and didn't miss a beat when it came to sentencing. We are forever grateful for the care, time and detail Evgeniya put into representing our family member and wouldn't hesitate to hire her again if needed.

Attorney Mordekhova
Words cannot express our appreciation for Attorney Mordekhova's representation in a criminal felony case for our son. Not only is she well versed in the law, she was personable and compassionate. While incarcerated she had regular contact with him to keep him aware of everything happening in his case. At all times Attorney Mordekhova treated our son with the utmost respect, always deferring to his choices on how to proceed with his case. She notified family of hearing dates so we could appear and kept us in the loop as to how things were progressing. I would not hesitate for a moment to refer her to a family member or friend. Attorney Mordekhova you are the best!

Very skilled and easy to work with
I hired Evgeniya to work with me in a case that may have had criminal implications. She was very knowledgeable and responsive, and friendly as well. Her skill put me more at ease in a scary situation.

Outstanding!
Yevgeniya was on top of it from day one! She was thorough, tough and went above and beyond in every way. She was always there to answer any questions I had, whenever I had them. I hope I never have to have an attorney again, but if I do she will be the first and only one I would call.

Thorough, superb representation
We retained counsel with Ms. Mordekhova and we couldn’t have been more pleased. She is thorough, detail oriented, highly strategic and articulate in her presentation. No stone was left unturned and in times of upset, she was very reassuring. Her level of dedication to our case was unparalleled- she operated in our interests as if she was personally involved. She takes her work very seriously and we felt her level of attentiveness was an 11 out of 10! We can’t say enough good things about her! She is a highly intelligent, top-tier, force to be reckoned with.

Case Dismissed!
Evgeniya was there to help from the beginning. She knows her job and does it well. She got my case assault case dismissed within 6 weeks by pressuring the prosecutor with details that showed it was a dead case. Hire her. She'll get you what you want.

Highly reccomend
Evgeniya helped me and my family with false accusation of DV. As a result of her efforts, our case was dismissed. Evgeniya is very knowledgeable, caring, energetic and a true fighter on the behalf of her clients. Her communication skills are impressive. In a situation of uncertainty and constant worry, she is never late to reply to all and every question. She is the only attorney that I will recommend to my friends in time of need.

Thanks to Evgeniya I’ve got my life back
At the end of March 2018, I was charged with DV Assault 4 and Harassment, also No Contact Order was issued against me. There were nasty photos in the police report proving trauma caused by my actions. My first Attorney failed to negotiate any deal with prosecutor and case was set for trial. At that point I decided to change my lawyer and hired Evgeniya. She took the case with incredible energy: she interviewed all witnesses on the case, hired an expert and based on that expertise results she was able to dismiss my testimony to the police. With her representation No Contact Order was significantly amended. With those changed prosecutor made a deal proposal, but she advised me against it and we went to 4 days jury trial. At the trial she proved Self-Defense. The verdict was NOT GUILTY for both charges. Thanks to Evgeniya I’ve got my life back.

She saved me
I found myself in a terrible alleged dv + situation and had never been in trouble before. I didn't know how any of this law stuff worked or what to do. I was a stranger in a strange land so to speak. I count my blessings that I had the luck of receiving her as my defense attorney in what would turn out to be one of her strangest cases. She is highly knowledgeable in her field of practice and could not have had a better defender. She went above and beyond for my case and it was dismissed. I owe her all the gratitude in the world for her devotion to her work and that she believed in me and my innocence. Thank you again

Lifesaver
My husband and I had a pleasure to hire Evgeniya in our extremely(!) complicated family case as our protection order advocate, which she made an exception for. My family was crushed by the event that caused this legal process to start and, to be honest, we were all falling apart. Evgeniya came in as a single source of hope for our case. She quickly replied to our initial email, scheduled a phone call, then a meeting, and then an appearance in court on our behalf. Evgeniya was extremely knowledgeable, showed genuine care, was patient with us, answered every question that we had and always made us feel welcome. We talked often - most often during emails and even text messages - and she has never been late to reply to anything, even if it could wait. She was very professional, she knew exactly whom to contact and whom to speak to for more information due to her impressive career history. Evgeniya successfully completed our case in a very pleasing amount of time and she provided me with the protection, which I desperately needed. If I ever need to make a recommendation for a defense attorney, it would most definitely be Evgeniya. I have, and always will have, a grand amount of gratitude and respect for her. To be honest, I would call her our lifesaver, because, without Evgeniya's help, we would not be able to get our safety back.

Former Investigator for Attorney Mordekhova
Attorney Mordekhova puts her heart in to her life's passion, defending the accused. She works diligently and pursues every outlet to bring the best possible outcome for her clients. I have worked with attorney Mordekhova as an investigator, although she is a great investigator herself. She's driven to succeed, which motivates her to look at all sources and search for all information she can find to assist her clients. Attorney Mordekhova is talented, realistic, honest, and powerful. I have learned from her and I know her clients have benefited from the wonderful work she's done.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
Mrs. Mordekhova, represented my son on a DV case. She was absolutely amazing! She was knowledgeable, compassionate, and active in the fight to help my son get the justice he deserved! Without her we would not have seen the amazing outcome on this case that we did. You can tell in the way she treats her clients, that she is determined to see justice for them, and is actively working on behalf of her clients best interest at whatever cost it takes. She made late evening phones calls to us about his case, as well as visits to him while in jail to discuss his case. Not one time was she ever not on his side, or had a discriminatory thought or comment about him. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing an amazing defense lawyer!

Exceptional Representation
Ms. Mordekhova, while a gifted practitioner of the law, went "the extra mile" to make sure that both the client (my son) AND I were given realistic and accurate information at every step. While her primary concern was the TECHNICAL, she never lost sight of how painful and frightening a time it was for us. Exceptional legal knowledge paired with caring and compassion...like my title says, EXCEPTIONAL REPRESENTATION

Great attorney
Ms. Mordekhova is a great attorney, she did everything she could to stay on top of my case and helped me out alot. Even inside the jail i had people telling me how great she was and not to worry. The best advice i could give you is to stay OFF the jail phone and let her handle your case and youll be fine.

The Best
I met Ms. Mordekhova while I was incarcerated at RJC pursuant to the charge of Assault 2 DV . During the first meeting we discussed my charges, and she immediately started working on my defense. I was released the very next day. We agreed on the steps to take and she worked vigorously on my case. I NEVER had to wait for a question to be answered. She worked closely with me and I had open access to her and her assistant. At her advice, we set my case for trial, which was a successful move that contributed to the positive outcome. Once we decided on the strategy, she immediately got an investigator assigned, and the defense team pursued my defense right away. I maintained my innocence, and she believed in me and my case. After the defense investigator completed the investigation, Evgeniya pursued the state to dismiss my case. The State made a misdemeanor offer, however, Evgeniya did not stop until my case was dismissed. Following her guidance, we went through my ordeal until it was dismissed. I am more than pleased with the way she helped me through my troubles with the legal system.

A great, albeit busy, lawyer
Evgeniya represented me in a case that everyone said was hopeless, and we won. But you have to bring your A game - she doesn't suffer fools or put up with any nonsense. She's a whip smart, experienced and tenacious advocate for her clients, and she wins.
