About me

Hussein Karmali was born and raised in Washington
State. He got a BA in English from the University of Washington and
attended law school in Lansing, Michigan. He came back to Washington and
completed an externship as a public defender with the City of Kent.
There, he learned about criminal law from the

ground up and
interacted with a diverse number of clients. Through this, he gained his
first understanding of what the criminal justice is about and how to place
clients in the best position to succeed by minimizing their exposure to

After his
externship, he entered private practice where he gained even more
practical experience by handling criminal cases in various courts throughout the
State of Washington. He learned the importance of understanding the
different judges in the various courts throughout the state. He also
negotiated cases with a number of different prosecutors. He learned that a
good defense means understanding the various judges and
prosecutors to get the best possible result for his clients. Karmali Law
Office will put that experience to work for you.
