Knowledgeable and persistent
Tim is a rock star. Initially he told me what’s the plan of action would be and what are best and worst case scenarios. He stuck to the plan and executed it flawlessly. Tim was able to re-open 4 of my criminal cases and amended sentencing or vacated charges all together. He went above and beyond to get the best result’s possible. In result, I was able to successfully pursue my immigration case. Which was. 20 year battle. Over all, Tim played a life changing role in my life and will be forever grateful.

If I could add more stars, I would
Tim was an incredible lawyer. He went above and beyond to help not only get my case heard, but completely vacated and dismissed. Even during the pandemic, he was excellent about keeping me updated about where we were at in the courts. He was also just very straight forward about my options, no sugar coating, which I really appreciated. Worth every cent, I would gladly return to Tim for legal help.

post conviction release
We talked to Tim about my brother who was detained by I.C.E. i,e. immigration customs enforcement for a 20 year old conviction back in 1998. Since that time after that he has been a model person. We needed help urgently for I.C.E was deporting him by mid Dec. 2018. Tim said he can help him and go work on vacating this old conviction. He was very effective, aggressive and knowledgeable. He got the old conviction vacated from Pierce County in record timing and saved by brother from Deportation. We are eternally grateful for his help. We highly recommend Tim to everyone we know or who needs a defense attorney. Tim is absolutely the best.

Excellent Legal Representation
I am very happy with my decision to hire Tim. Tim was great about keeping me up to speed with any developments in my case and making sure I understood everything I needed to know about the legal proceedings. He was also very easy to reach whenever I had any questions. Tim negotiated a very positive result for me. I was extremely pleased with the way my case went and I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone seeking a criminal or civil defense attorney.

Great Representation
I came across Tim and his firm from a basic Google search. I lived outside Washington and did not know any lawyers in the state of Washington. I was facing a personally damaging charge that would have affected my reputation in a very negative way and was very concerned about this. I was also concerned about using a lawyer off of a search that I had never met face to face before. My concerns turned out to be unfounded as Tim represented me in an excellent manner. Working with Tim was great. He was responsive to my needs, explained the legal process I was facing in an easy to understand manner, and prepared very diligently for my case. Not only did he win my case, but during the ruling the judge actually commended him on his fine work on my case! I was very impressed. I would definitely recommend Tim to any person looking for a criminal or civil defense attorney in the state of Washington.

When a King County judge makes the wrong decision, Tim is the right person for your appeal.
I would hire Tim again in a heartbeat, and if history repeats itself I may need to do so. My situation is one that demonstrates what happens when a poor judge is sitting on the bench. There was no evidence of my guilt, and in fact, my neighbor got caught lying in court and the judge did nothing. Instead of making the right decision the judge got angry and punished me for the fiasco my neighbors have caused. Tim looked at my case, looked at the law, saw there was no evidence for the judges decision and won my appeal. Since the Nightmare on the road known as 227th Place SE in Maple Valley continues we anticipate that when the order against our neighbors ends, they will begin their chaos again. I hope I don't need Tim again, but wouldn't hesitate to rehire him.
