I definitely highly recommend Will & Will. I am a professional businessman who has never had any run ins with the law (my "record" consists of a few parking tickets). So when I was arrested for a domestic violence, it was a huge shock. My fiance and I had regrettably gotten into a huge argument and neighbors called the police. Next thing you know I'm in jail and in need of a really good criminal defense attorney. I found Court and Michelle on Avvo and they got right to work on my case. They told me the exact steps to take to put myself in the best possible position to avoid a conviction. I didn't want to go through a trial, but I couldn't have a conviction on my record either. Luckily, they were able to get exactly what I wanted. An "SOC" where, as I understand it, most people have to be on for 18-24 months and have to complete a 52-week domestic violence class. But after what we presented to the prosecutors, I only had to do six, 1-hour counseling sessions (with a counselor of my choosing) and after 12 months, the case will be dismissed entirely, without ever having a conviction at all. By the way, they even helped me with some relationship advice and things are great there now too! My sincerest gratitude to both Michelle and Court.

I was recently charged with a gross misdemeanor for property destruction. Court Will represented me in court and was able to have my case dismissed and took care of me from the beginning til the end. I am forever grateful for everything that Court done for me. I highly recommend his service for anyone that needs somebody to represent them in court.

The worst day of my life was when I received a call from a detective telling me I was being investigated for rape. My life turned upside down. At first I had faith in the system. I hadn't done anything wrong, so the case wouldn't go anywhere, right?? Wrong. I was arrested and thrown in jail. From day one I had been in touch with Court and he talked me through the process. Court got me what seemed like a great deal in the before trial after negotiating for months. getting a “psychological” evaluation, taking and passing TWO polygraphs, etc. No jail time and just a simple misdemeanor assault. I was appreciative but the problem was that I was innocent so how could I accept this? So we get ready for trial. More months go by, and we're finally getting close to starting trial. Court does an interview with the accuser and evidently does an amazing job because a week later after going back and forth with the prosecutor some more, my case is completely dismissed! I had my life back after a year and a half. I can't thank Court enough. If you want lawyers that are really going to fight for you and believe in you, then hire Will & Will.

Without going into too much detail, I had an issue from my past that I thought was behind me, but it ended up coming back on me when I wasn't expecting it. The investigation had me really worried as I would have to "register" if I was convicted of something I didn't do. I called and talked to Court and was definitely reassured after talking to him. No promises were made but I felt very comfortable and while it took a couple of months to sort everything out in the end after meeting with detectives with Court they ultimately decided to close out the case and no charges were filed. I really appreciate the help and answering my questions and putting this behind me once and for all.

I would definitely recommend Mr. Will to anyone who is looking for a defense lawyer. Mr. Will is passionate about his job, he listens to your concerns and answers all of your questions-even if you ask the same questions he does not hesitate to answer them again. I hired him for my boyfriends case and he made sure that both of us understood the process of the case and explained everything to us. He was a great lawyer, he did everything that he could to get us the best result.

Courtney James Will got me through, and out of, the most difficult, and darkest time in my life. After being charged with a serious misdemeanor, which would have required registration, I was initially assigned a public defender. I spoke with my pubic defender, and, maintaining my innocence, was told that these type of cases are difficult to overcome with an optimistic resolution. In fact, I was told that dismissal of the charge, and/or being acquitted of the charge, would be very difficult. I can't even begin to explain what something like this can do to your life, let alone your mind. Each day was more miserable than the next, and despite believing I had the facts on my side, I couldn't help but feel that my chances at having a normal life were slowly diminishing. I believe that my public defender (who I was assigned during the early stages of my case) had the best intentions, however, I started to realize that perhaps I would be best suited with a private attorney who could actually focus their time on my case, rather than the massive piles of cases that public defenders likely have. I also realized that some public defenders may have very little time due to time intensive trials etc, such as murder trials, and due to these factors, I had my public defender suggest I just plead guilty due to the fact that the initial prosecutor was unwilling to dig further into the case, and look at all the facts, and the fact that a trial outcome, in a unique case such as this, would be uncertain for either side, however, the repercussions for losing a trial, vs a plea deal, would possibly be much more severe.I quickly went to work looking for a private attorney who could work the case from a better angle, one who could get the facts across to a prosecutor and judge, who can look at all aspects of the case, and see that the accusation doesn't fit who I am, among other things that could point to my innocence. I felt that with my public defender, these, and many other facts, and pieces of evidence in my case, would simply have been overlooked, or ignored, in order to speed along my case, to make room for their other cases, and, due to the fact that my life, and future were at stake, I knew that I couldn't just let my inalienable rights simply be brushed aside, or ignored. I knew I needed to find an attorney that would make sure that my case would be handled honestly, and fairly. Also, I needed to find an attorney who could give me peace of mind and assurance. The peace of mind I'm talking about, is the kind that is only achieved, when you know that your life and future is in good hands. Actually not just good, but the best. Peace of mind that you get, knowing that your life, and future, and livelihood, are in the hands of someone who will go the extra mile for you, and fight tooth and nail to defend you. Someone who appreciates the value of human life, and takes on a case knowing exactly how much is hanging in the balance and is at stake. Court Will went above and beyond answering that call, and I honestly feel that he was born to work in this profession. From day one when first speaking to Court, he was an excellent listener, nonjudgmental, a critical thinker, and was excellent at piecing together a story, and understanding the facts. Right away Court had a game plan. He clearly outlined the steps that we should take, and I then immediately knew that I had found the perfect attorney to handle my case. He conducted interviews, gathered evidence, spoke to the prosecutor, and went to court for me many times, and sometimes made it so that I didn't have to show up to certain court dates that weren't necessary. Court was very flexible with the payment, and I'm extremely grateful for this. If I could write more I would. Court was able to eventually get my charge lowered to a non serious misdemeanor, with no registration due to the type of charge, and was able to avoid a lengthy, uncertain, scary trial. Thank you Courtney Will for saving my life!

Going through the legal process added a lot of extra stress to my fall but Court made it as comforting as possible. I always felt like I was talking to a person when talking to court. He empathized with my situation and was understanding of all my concerns.
He always got back to me within a day of whenever I asked him a question, and I asked a lot. I was accused with a felony. He ended up getting the state to not file their case so everything was dropped. I could not be more thankful for my interaction with Court and would recommend him 10 out of 10 times.

I was charged with possession of a controlled substance while spending a summer in Seattle. Court was incredibly helpful and got the best possible result for me, and he accomplished this while I was on the opposite side of the country. Thanks to his efforts the whole matter was resolved perfectly, and we managed to avoid having to fly back to Seattle and deal with the matter personally. I would recommend Court very highly to anybody needing a criminal defense lawyer.

I'm extremely happy with the outcome of my case and I'm posting this review anonymously because while I want to tell you how good of a job they did, I really don't want my name out there for something like this. Here it is: I was falsely accused of rape. Bear in mind that aside for a couple of traffic tickets over the years, I've never been accused of anything. So this was a major shock, especially since everything was totally 100% consensual. This review could go on forever, but to cut to the chase. Court and Michelle believed me when I told them I was innocent and so did the jury. Case closed and now I’m looking into filing a lawsuit against my accuser.

Long story short, I ended up in a fight one night over something really dumb and next thing you know, I get hit with a felony assault charge against someone I used to be good friends with (but had not seen in years). I thought the charge was bogus, but I had to deal with it so I checked out some reviews on this site avvo for lawyers and found Will & Will. I called them up and met with them that same day. Court walked me through the entire process, heard me out, and I hired him on the spot. After doing a bunch of witness interviews, they told me things were looking good. I wasn't sure what exactly this meant as I have never been in this situation before and I was nervous after looking up how bad things could get with a case like mine. Fast forward through 6-7 court appearances and setting the case for trial, the Will's kept on pushing for the deal they thought was good (and I wanted) and they finally got it. To this day, I still can't believe I was even arrested in the first place, but the good news is I picked great lawyers and walked away with no felony and my freedom!! I don't plan on ever needing a lawyer again, but I will definitely call these guys if do.
