The. Best. Attorney. Ever. I have (unfortunately) worked with quite a few attorney's in my life time and I have to say that Brit is, hands-down, the best of the best. She is completely on top of everything, has strong relationships with the courts, prosecutors, judges and she's a straight shooter. I had a DUI, two criminal trespassing, and a driving while suspended. I live in California so travel was difficult but Brit managed to arrange all court dates next to each other to minimize travel. She killed it. I was worried about jail time but she managed to negotiate with all prosecutors to keep me out... all I had to do was pay some fines and do 20 hrs. community service. Beyond that, she gave thorough explanations of what to expect, made sure everything was handled, reminded me of court dates, was always on time, and certainly went above and beyond to make sure I felt cared about and taken care of. I can't say enough about Brit. If you are looking for an attorny in Washington State, I can assure you Brit is one of the best you'll find!!!

Britt was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who was a law professor-- she defended me in a case where I was arrested for filming a climate activist, where I did not myself break any laws, but was put in Skagit County jail charged with 3 felonies with a penalty of over 30 years of jail time. As you can imagine, this was a very scary time-- Britt was both reassuring and tough, and created an effective strategy which eventually got my charges dropped before my having to go to trial. What impressed me about Britt was not only her legal intelligence and proficiency, but her intuition about human nature and relationship building ability-- in my case she formed an effective and respectful relationship with the county prosecutor, which I believe was instrumental in the success of my case. I could not recommend her more highly.

Brit lays it all out fit you, she walks you through everything so you understand exactly what is going on. She doesn't sugarcoat what the possibilities are, but she also stays upbeat and and her confident, calm manner always a assures you that she will get you the absolute best result possible. You can't do better than Brit.

Briteney was recommended to me by a mutual friend when I was arrested for a DUI. She made time for me right away for a consultation where I found her empathetic, understanding and incredibly helpful when it came to letting me know my options. She gave me all of the facts, gave advice when she could and answered my millions of questions as this was my first offense.
After leaving her office, I felt a lot better having her by my legal side. She provided me with a clear list of action items and dates to get them done. When I sent emails with questions or updates during the process, Briteney always responded in a timely manner.
Once the court proceedings began, I was nervous and out of my element. Briteney was as soothing as possible for those surroundings and would find moments to lighten the mood when it was just us yet she was always a true professional. She interacted very well with the judge and other lawyers in the courtroom.
At my hearing Briteney truly showed up and showed all her potential in the courtroom. She was a force to be reckoned with! She was knowledgeable, she was quick to make arguments in response to the prosecution and she went in there with a focused determination. Her preparation for the hearing, her performance and her demeanor was superb and I really can't recommend her enough to anyone unlucky enough to find themselves in a DUI/DWI situation. I ended up with a favorable deal and I know that wouldn't have happened without Briteney's help. Do yourself a favor and hire Briteney, she's worth every penny.
Thank you again Briteney!

I received a DUI 2 years ago and hired Brit to represent me as my attorney after interviewing 5 candidates. It was a very scary time for me, with no prior convictions this incident had turned my life upside down. Brit was great at explaining each step of the way in great detail so that I was able to make decisions logically and not from an emotional place. She is also very quick, any questions I emailed or called her about she answered immediately so I never had to wonder the status of my case. She was proactive in offering up multiple solutions, outlining the benefits or risks with each step. Ultimately, Brit was able to negotiate my charge down to a reckless driving charge. 2 years later she assisted me in pulling records to ensure that my deferral had occurred with no problem, she was happy to help even though it had been 2 years later. I would recommend Brit to any of my family or friends needing legal representation. She is smart, poised, quick to respond, and is well connected within her community which I believe can only be a benefit.

I was summoned to court to face criminal charges regarding a car accident I was involved in. I was severely injured in the accident and did not remember any details about the accident. Briteney guided me through the court system and got me off with a minimal ticket fee. No criminal charges.

Brit Mercer is probably the best criminal defense attorney I've ever hired and I've hired more than a few. I made some mistakes in my past that I never dealt with and she, in my opinion, went above and beyond to help my through the process. I had a DUI case and some DWLS cases that she cleared for me. I feel like I got the best outcome anyone could have ever hoped for and it for sure would not have been possible without Brit. If you have a case there's no question in mind Brit will handle it as if she was defending herself not just another client. If you're looking who to hire look no further......

Brit is simply the best ! I hired Brit in connection for DUI , it was my first offense. I was scared, nervous and felt overwhelmed . When I say Brit is the best , I do not use that phrase lightly. Brit was amazing to say the least . She was the lifeline I needed . Trying to figure where to even start to navigate the seemly rocky waters of our legal system can be daunting .
I feel extremely fortunate That I had Brit on my side . Right from our first meeting Brit put me at ease. She explained everything I needed to know in terms I could understand. In court , Brit spoke with a sense of confidence , eloquence , grace and sophistication. Brit's technical expertise is exceptional. She understands legal strategy at the highest level, is a masterful tactician and an artful negotiator. Brit worked tirelessly on behalf. She was always meticulously prepared for our meetings and Court. She definitely has a passion for her job . Every time we met, Brit always displayed a sense of positive energy .
Brit loves her job and this came through at all times. However, the one thing that stood out that makes her fantastic is her human touch. Brit never forgets she is dealing with a person , often scared and overwhelmed. The one word I would use to sum it all up is this, caring . Brit cares. She is a human being who cares to help out other human beings in moments of their greatest difficulty . I will never be able to adequately thank Brit for all that she did on my behalf. Simply said, she is the BEST !

I highly recommend Brit. She is extremely respected in her work. I was charged with a first time dui and she helped get it down to a negligent driving in the first degree. She was great through the whole process. Very trustworthy, professional, confident, and intelligent. You can't go wrong with her!

I referred Brit a client with a VERY difficult set of facts and some unusual circumstances. Brit did a great job of explaining to my client the process the case would go through and counseled patience while she attempted to negotiate a creative resolution. Over the next six months, Brit was able to convince the prosecutors office to enter into a very unique case resolution that took into account the unusual circumstances involved. My client was extremely happy and incredibly relieved with the outcome that Brit obtained for him.
