    I fight hard for people accused of DUI in court and with the Department of Licensing. You face possible jail, license suspension, fines and many other penalties. Success is achieved with excellent negotiating skills but also superior trial advocacy when necessary. Equally important is someone who can clearly explain to you both the administrative and criminal penalties, the process, and arm you with all the resources you need. This is what I do using experience and hard work.

    Traffic tickets can be beat or kept off your record completely. I routinely get dismissals for my clients cited for many types of traffic violations. Whats more is you do not even have to appear in court,,,ever. I can appear on your behalf and resolve you traffic case...protecting your driving record and of course, insurance rates.

I first became a lawyer because, as corny as it might seem, I was enthralled by watching Perry Mason when I was a young boy.  The cool and calm demeanor he exhibited in any situation, his crafty cross examination of witnesses that somehow always led to a confession, and not to mention he won all his cases.  While in law school, I volunteered at local legal clinics to help people with everyday legal issues they face, from workplace discrimination to holding a bad landlord accountable.  It was during this time that I saw what power the law held to help people, to improve people's lives, and to be a "big stick" when necessary.  This is one of the reasons I chose to represent people charged with crimes for a living, because so many of my clients are good people even if they made a mistake.  And the U.S. Constitution requires that everyone accused of a crime be entitled to a zealous defense, someone to protect their rights and challenge the government's authority when necessary.  This is why I do what I do.

 

As a former prosecuting attorney and Judge Pro Tem, I have the experience and knowledge needed to successfully represent those accused of crimes, whether it is assault, DUI, suspended license, theft, and all other criminal charges.  I also handle hundreds of traffic citations a year with an extremely high success rate.  I regularly attend and speak at seminars on trial advocacy, stay up to date on new developments in my field, and provide all the resources my clients need to get them through the process successfully.   But I also take pride in my client service, keeping clients updated on their cases' progress and informed of all developments.   I am also there 24 hours a day if my clients need a question answered or simply want to discuss their case.  

 

Being charged with a crime can be stressful, emotionally and financially.  If you find yourself in this situation, put me in your corner.  You will be glad you did.

Excellent Attorney.
Couple months ago I got into an at fault accident; rear ended a car. There were no injuries and no major damages to the second car, but I got a speeding ticket, that could increase my insurance rates significantly. I have contacted Andrew and explained my situation; it was easy to talk with him, and got clear answers to all my questions. After consultation (it was free), Andrew took care of my ticket. In one month the ticket was dismissed, and I got confirmation letter in my mail. I am very grateful for Andrew's help, and I HIGHLY recommend him to everyone, because working with him was fast, easy and with a positive result. After my experience, I can tell that Andrew is an Excellent Attorney.

After getting a speeding ticket deferred, I got another...
Background: After receiving a speeding ticket, I was fortunate enough to have it deferred for one year as long as I received no further moving violations. A few months after committing to this, and on the same stretch of road, I got another ticket and panicked (for a variety of reasons, but mainly for insurance - I was very mad at myself and didn't see any way out). Andrew was honest, communicative, and most importantly, effective. He came recommended by a friend, but I was still surprised at the ease of how it went. I completed an online driving course and paid a fine (both of which I deserved and both of which were fair and the best possible outcome). I cannot believe he was able to keep this off of my record in terms of my insurance. I had no idea this was possible. Highly recommend.

Speeding Ticket Fighter
I have Andrew to represent me for all of my speeding ticket many times. He managed to clear the infraction and help me keep my record clean. When it comes to speeding ticket. He's one of the best out there that I would recommend to anyone. I have recommended to all of my friends and family already. Look no further and give him a call or message him now.

Grateful to have his legal counsel
I have used Mr. Huff on two separate occasions. Both were driving infraction matters. He is extremely knowledgeable and willing to spend time explaining things in a way you can understand. In each case the outcome has been favorable. I highly recommend Mr. Huff. I feel that had he not been representing me, I would not have had such a good outcome with either of my cases.

Truly exceptional!
My first time ever involved with the law in a negative way and I was terrified. Andrew reassured me and walked me through every step of the process. Always staying positive but always stayed realistic. I'm sure he has multiple clients at any given time, yet he always makes you feel like your case is the only one he has. I can't express my gratitude for his hard work and dedication. Andrews passion for the law and helping others is second to none!

Seattle's Best!
Andrew is very informative, personable and knows how to work the court room. I used him several years ago and won my case and it was not an easy one. My life would of been ruined. I'm grateful for his knowledge and expertise. I never forgot about his hard work and dedication. I recently got into a bind and called him again to work with me on a new case and he was yet again amazing! Some attorneys I find hard to be around mainly due to ego's and etc. But, with Andrew he feels like a friend he is highly intelligent with a beautiful balance of being personable and down to earth. Which I value. Many attorneys can learn from Andrew's style! I have already recommended him to everyone I know and will continue to do so!

Really good experience
I have retained Andrew for a number of violations and referred many friends to him. I can say Andrew is everything you’d want in an attorney in that he is responsive, knowledgeable and personable. He also has vast experience, even as a prosecutor. All of this coupled with long standing relationships makes him a good choice if you find yourself in a bind and need help. I highly recommend him.

Knowledgeable, informative, and he delivers results.
I received a ticket, and the consequences would have gone way beyond the fine - higher insurance rates, etc. The traffic court system was a mystery to me. Andrew took over, and handled the entire matter for me. He was always calm and very informative, and I couldn't have asked for a better result.

.16 DUI reduced to Reckless Driving
I got caught blowing twice the legal limit and thought I ruined my life and reputation. I asked a lawyer friend of mine for a good reference, and was told Andrew Huff was the best defense lawyer for DUIs in town. From the first moment I came in contact with him, he set my mind at ease and gave me supreme counseling. He very accurately informed me about everything that would happen, and set my concerns at ease through the process. Some may call it luck, but I call it expertise and professionalism when he was able to get my .16 DUI reduced to a Reckless Driving. Not just any attorney can accomplish such a feat. I am very thankful that I was able to retain such a pristine lawyer at a very reasonable cost, and I truly believe I have received more from him than I paid. I highly recommend Andrew Huff as your defense attorney for DUIs.

Speeding Ticket
I recieved a speeding ticket on 520 and was concerned that my insurance would go up. I asked a friend who they use and referred me to Andrew. He was easy to talk to and answered all my questions. The ticket was dismissed and I don't have anything on my driving record. I can see why my friend referred me.

Andrew Huff comes through for me time and time again
Andrew Huff has represented me for various traffic citations throughout the past 10 years. Each time he has taken care of everything for me without hassle. He is very knowledgeable of the law and procedures. If there is a problem with the prosecution's proof, he will find it. I recommend Andrew Huff wholeheartedly.

Look No Further
I've worked with many lawyers in my profession and was very leery of finding someone to represent me in my DUI case as it was a very sensitive matter. I met with several lawyers, including my previous clients and co-workers and none compared to Andrew. He eased all of my concerns and was very thorough in explaining the process I was about to embark on, and my options. I was able to make payment arrangements and felt his retainer was very affordable. Andrew responded to all of my emails the same day, and never once missed one of my calls. He was very sympathetic and never made me feel ashamed of my situation. He is well connected in the greater Seattle area and is very articulate and well spoken in court. I always felt I was in great hands. Andrew Huff is an excellent advocate to have on your side and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services!

Great Professionalism and Service
Andrew went out of his way to make sure I was "in the know" as well as happy with his service. He made sure I was not over burden with paying my fee 100% up front I paid it in two payments. His service was much higher then I ever expected and he went more then the extra mile. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone in need of help in fact I have friends that have used Andrew's Law services and have been as happy with his service as I was and am. Andrew is still my attorney in seattle and will be handling another case for me in 20i13 and I am anxiously looking forward to having him take care of my problems. If you want an attorney that will go the extra mile he is it.

Exelent legal representation
Andrew represented me and other members of my family more than once and all those times my cases were taken care of. Andrew is honest and knoledgeble person. He is also very highly skilled professional. I highly recommend Andrew for all you legal needs!!!

Andrew is an Amazing lawyer! Made feel confident about my case.
I was recommeded to Anderew by a friend of mine who had used Andrew with a DUI case and had good results. I had never been in trouble with the law before and was very nervous about the whole thing. After interviewing several lawyers, Andrew put me at ease almost immediatley. He answered all my questions adequately and even had a packet of info for me so I knew exactly what I needed to do (ex. classes, evaluation) My case was looking a little grim given the circumstances but Andrew reassured me I had a chance at a good outcome. My outcome ended up being better than I ever expected. Andrew called me one day and let me know my case had been dropped 100%! With a little bit of luck, but mainly Andrews knowledge and expertise with the law a case that seemed impossible was overturned and a huge burden lifted off my shoulders. I would recommend Andrew with a doubt.

Best DUI Defense Lawyer
Andrew Huff was suberb in defending my case....from motions phase to control what evidence could be used against me...through trial phase with his presentation of opening/closing as well was cross-examination. Being charged with DUI is emotionally challenging, and Andrew has compassionate style which makes going through legal process easier. Andrew also has great knowledge of law and the resources available to help your case (expert witness, assessments, etc). If you're reading this, you're likely in a tough spot, with the implications of legal penalties that could negatively impact your life for years to come....this was my situation, but through hiring Andrew and putting my case in his hands, I was able to go through trial and ultimately walk out of court with completely positive outcome. I can't imagine how a defense lawyer could have done better job, than Andrew did for me.
