Robert is the man! hands down the best lawyer I have ever hired, not just because of the results also his interaction with his client & it isn't all about time and money. One word that explains my case.....DISMISSED
Posted by anonymous
I hired Robert to handle a misdemeanor case brought against my adult son in Seattle's Municipal Court. The case and circumstances around the case were complicated by my son having Bipolar Disorder. A valued family friend, who is a former Superior Court judge, highly recommended Robert. From our first meeting, my son and I both felt we were in good hands.
We could not have been happier with Robert's handling of my son's case, his understanding of the charges as they related to my son's health, his professionalism, and integrity. He was warm and compassionate while being extremely knowledgeable about the law and my son's options. He demonstrated experience handling similar cases and clients with similar health issues. Robert outlined and prioritized a number of strategies in our first meeting; he was successful with his first plan of action. His estimate of the time it would take to take care of the case were spot on.
I feel that Robert is an excellent lawyer and a good man. I would not hesitate to hire him again and refer him to my closest friends and family.

I am a law-abiding individual licensed to carry firearms in the state of Washington. Having been around firearms my whole life, I found myself in the very unfortunate situation where I had to use my firearm to defend myself against several drunken thugs who accosted me at Marina Park in Kirkland, WA. When the police arrived, one man who accosted me ran and the other was arrested. However, the police also arrested me and charged me with display of a weapon (9.41.270). This happened in spite of the fact that the legislation subsection (c) of that legislation indicates that I may use my firearm to defend myself.
I hired one attorney who was horrible at communicating and did not act quickly as I had asked her to do. I was hoping to get the case dismissed based on clear video evidence before we even went to pre-trial. She couldn't even get in touch with the prosecutor. My life was quickly falling apart and I was facing serious consequences.
After a friend recommended that I check out Mr. Flennaugh, I contacted him reluctantly. He set me at ease and I agreed to swap my attorneys. Mr. Flennaugh made his first call to the prosecutor immediately after I hired him. The prosecutor took my initial slowness to act (with the previous attorney) and my attorney swap as a weakness in my defense. The prosecutor offered that I give up my firearm and my concealed carry license and plead guilty. In return I would get no jail time. I declined and Mr. Flennaugh went to work. Two court dates later (one to request a continuance while the prosecutor reviewed our evidence, and the second to enter our settlement with the judge) my case was dismissed with prejudice and my firearm was returned to me.
My previous attorney gave me no confidence and may have actually prolonged my case. Mr. Flennaugh put a stop to the prosecution and let me get back to my life.
If you are looking for justice, picking the right attorney is key. Chose the wrong attorney as I initially did and you could end up in jail. Choose the right attorney and it will make all the difference in the world.

I would not hesitate to recommend Robert, or to hire him if I needed a lawyer, for any kind of case from a misdemeanor to a serious white collar offense. It's rare to find someone with experience and skill over such a broad range, but Robert has it.
