I am a passionate advocate for my clients. I believe that everyone deserves the best representation and deserves to maintain their dignity throughout the legal process. To many times individuals get railroaded into making decisions that may not be in their best interest because they have not been given the information to make an informed decision. I work diligently to obtain the best results for clients and keep them informed for the entire process. I believe the attorney cleint relationship is a reciprocal relationship and treat it as such.

Lucas comes through as a top tier attorney again and again!
I had a really rocky issue involving the new justices in Anacortes, WA with a marijuana compliance issue that the now previous retired judge had excluded from my probation upon sentencing. He had handled my original case (DUI defense - in which i got a favorable outcome given the difficult circumstance) and although this time really looked like it was going to be a rough ride he was able to clear a smooth path through for me to sail calmly through. He was able to get the court to agree to the original plea bargain and recognize the retired judges order (What looked like a near impossible feat he did with ease and gusto!). I really hope never to have to hire a lawyer again, but if I do I keep Lucas's card in my wallet because I know given the options he is clearly the best option. I highly recommend him to anyone facing difficult times as he is very knowledgeable and doesn't treat you just as a passing source of income but as what you are a paying client who deserves customer service which he goes above and beyond to provide. Even when I would get confused he was very good at explaining everything including any options I had to resolve the matter. Thank you Lucas! You really are a step above the rest. #DUIdefense #MarijuanaProbationViolation #CourtComplianceissues -Michael (Nikkoli for those friends that may be looking and in need of a really good and knowledgeable defense attorney)

Amazing.... Helped me in my time of need, Labor Day Weekend of all days!!!!
Cops used scare tactics on me and wanted to turn me from a witness to a suspect. Lucas assisted me on Labor Day weekend (when he didn't have to) and reassured me everything would be fine. Explained my rights and gave me advice that really helped me. Lucas, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. You have no idea just how much stress you've relieved me of.

Intelligent, Humble and the Best Lawyer for any Defense
I hired Lucas to defend me against false allegations. Lucas is my superstar as he respected our side of the story and listened to us , which is what I expect from a great Lawyer. He helped me win my case and brought peace to our family.

Reduced Speeding Infraction
Lucas not only helped to lower a speeding infraction to a non moving violation, he was also able to get the fine lowered for me. I was very impressed with the communication from both himself and his Legal Assistant. I highly recommend his law office and will refer him to others.

Lucas is so humble, very professional, very smart and confident in his knowledge and the subject matter, honest, punctual, all the cases he handled have never failed including my friend whom I referred and others, and the most trusted personality at the court and even by the judges, I witness. He handled diverse types of cases with successful outcomes.

Lucus is hands down amazing
I couldn’t be happier with how much relief he gave me in court. He knew wheat he was doing and had done his homework on my case and it showed. I had him step in for our renewal protection order and he caught himself up and was ready to go day of. He is reliable and always got back to my messages quickly. I’ll alwAys use Lucus for any legal issues.

THANK YOU LUCAS!!!!!!!
I could write a novel about how happy I am with the services received from Lucas & Paulette. I was referred to him by a highly touted, more expensive firm for an old out of state DUI in warrant status. After my first phone call I was glad they referred me. Smart, compassionate, responsive, understanding, affordable, the list goes on and on. If I felt discouraged or confused he would take the time to explain. He didn't sugarcoat anything and was honest and up front about his expectations. I think the result was better then we both expected. DISMISSED THIS MORNING!!!!! EXCELLENT JOB AND THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!!!

The only Lawyer I trust for his expertise
I have used Lucas Mcwethy's services over 5 times now. I wish the star rating would go up to 15 so I can award him with the deserving recoginiton. Each time a violation happens, I immiediately call or email Lucas and his team. He's in constant communication through out the process and relieves me from my stress. I will be a customer for life. I have referred him to my family and good friends. Thank you for you outstanding services Lucas.

Making the complex simple
Lucas did a great job partnering with me on getting some traffic tickets dismissed. There were fairly odd tickets that three other attorneys would not take on the fight. I had no idea how to fight these tickets that I felt were unjust . When I talked to Lucas he was intrigued and excited to go to fight for me. I thought it was going to be a complex process but it was super simple. We exchanged a few emails and the impact he had was to get me off all three of the infractions. I did not even have to show up in court! Thanks again Lucas.

Professional, Skilled, Knowledgeable
I hired Lucas as legal defense when some false allegations were made against me. He gave me a free consultation, and immediately advised me of what my course of action should be. When Lucas represented me in court, he was able to pull up previous cases that were similar in nature, and ultimately had the case dismissed. After witnessing dozens of other people's lawyers fail in court over and over, I realized that I was super fortunate to have found Lucas. I would definitely hire him again in the future.

Best Lawyer For Criminal & Traffic!!!
I have hired Lucas D. Mcwethy legal services countless times and he has never let me down. It is quite impressive how much he cares about people and loves his job! Lucas will often take my calls to answer simple questions as well and that means a lot to me so I refer anyone I can to his firm. I am a small business owner and he has helped my company as well. Lucas will even do research for me if he doesn't have an immediate answer and he always calls me right back if he is busy, absolutely awesome customer service you dont get from most lawyers. Every time I have had negative encounters with Police, Lucas is there to help me win! When my room mate needed a lawyer, Lucas is there to help. When one of my employees needed a quality lawyer because public defenders are a joke, Lucas again was there to help the courts see the facts to win the case. When the judge needs to be convinced of the truth and the facts of a case, no one is better and cares more about people than Lucas. When I wanted to expand my business, Lucas was there to answer all my questions. Over 15-20 years ago I received a criminal charge for reckless driving and Lucas got that completely wiped off my criminal record. When I was given a ticket by an officer who lied, Lucas came to my defense and proved my case to the courts and once again he had it dismissed. When I received a ticket on my car which I dont drive for expired tabs, by the same corrupt Police who were harassing me, again Lucas got that ticket dismissed and won my case! When you have questions about Police abusing there authority or just a simple traffic matter, Lucas can help you win your case or negotiate on your behalf the very most positive outcome. Today I have no criminal record and no tickets on my driving record all thanks to Lucas. Today I have a small business legally licensed with employees who know they have a lawyer they can count on if there ever approached by corrupt Police. Unfortunately we live in a world where citizens see more corrupt Police every day than good lawyers defending your rights. A Public Defender is almost always never going to get the same results that as a good lawyer like Lucas can. Always video record Police using a offsite streaming video app, or else the police may just crush your phone and destroy any evidence you may have of them violating your rights. If you need the best lawyer around, The Law Firm of Lucas D. Mcwethy is your best resource. Call Lucas and ask him what he can do for you!!

Criminal defense
I had been charged with a negligent driving 2. I contacted Lucas. We had a consultation. I felt very comfortable hiring Lucas to represent me. On our day of court Lucas handled everything with the prosecutor and my charge was dramatically reduced. I have a clean driving record now. Would definitely hire Lucas.

Not just another attorney trying to squeeze you.
I had an incident that Lucas helped me resolve, he was very patient, professional and helped me understand the complicated process and all the different options that were available to me. I keep his card in my wallet and recommend him to friends and strangers alike for any kind of DUI needs because . Thank you Lucas, you rock!

Finally a Trustworthy Attorney!
I have retained Lucas three times to defend my teenage son for approximately seven traffic violations. All but one infraction was either totally dismissed, removed or plea bargained down to a much lessor offense. I have been a senior leader in a large corporation for more than 35 years and work with attorneys many times per year. It is refreshing to know one who works as hard as humanly possible to support his clients, all the while communicating with you on a regular basis, He is a sharp young attorney and the only I will use going forward.

Finally, a Trustworthy Attorney!!
I have obtained Lucas three separate times to defend my teenager for various driving violations. Each and every time he was extremely responsive and exhibited the most professionalism that I have seen in an attorney in 40 years. He clearly loves his work and I believe loves helping people more than anything. He costs were reasonable as well. It has been a long time since I met an attorney that I trust and as a long time Fortune 100 senior leader I have worked with 100's of attorneys and would place him at #1 in the trustworthy, knowledgeable and hard working department. I will use no one but Lucas going forward.

Efficient and effective
Obtaining Lucas for my moving violation was money well spent. He was smart and effective. He negotiated with the prosecutor several times and got my ticket reduced to non-moving violation. Thank you Lucas!

Excellent Service, Always Approachable
Lucas met with me and discussed my case. He outlined the procedures and gave me enough information for to me to feel respected. It was easy to get a hold of him when I needed updates and kept me updated as key events took place. Would definitely recommend to others and will hire again in the future as needed.

Traffic ticke dismissed for my wife
Lucas was great in handling the ticket my wife got by a cop who was not even present when my wife got in a minor auto accident. He did not promise too much, and I hoped he would be able to have the ticket dismissed, which he was. Thank you Lucas, was pleasure working with you.
