Bob Wayne is a fabulous attorney
Mr. Wayne provided excellent services from the moment we contacted him. He listened to the description of our legal issue and then asked questions that provided the detail needed in order to determine what options we could consider and what legal timeline we needed to understand. We were informed at all times of the status of our legal issue. When we needed to make decisions, he provided detailed explanations of the likely outcomes of the choices and then worked with us to make our choice. We can recommend Mr. Wayne without reservation for his high qulaity of service.

Kind and knowledgeable Seattle attorney
I found and contacted Robert Wayne through Avvo regarding an online dispute we were experiencing with an attorney out of state. He informed me that he wasn't licensed to practice in the state in question, but still listened kindly to our issues and gave some helpful recommendations on how to proceed and what to expect from the process. We are planning to relocate to the Seattle area in the next couple of years and will not hesitate in the slightest to use Mr. Wayne's services once we are WA residents. Thank you!

An attorneys attorney
Eight years ago we choose Bob Wayne to represent us! I found him the "old fashioned" way, in the yellow pages! By his name in the ad it read, an attorneys attorney! That couldn't be more TRUE! He knows law like the back of his legal hand! When it came time in court to earn his money, he earned every penny! The guy made mince meat out of the prosecuting attorney! I would highly recommend Bob Wayne as your attorney! Damn well worth the money! Oh and the outcome of my case...Not guilty with prejudice!!!

Background Check Gone Bad Until Meeting Mr. Wayne
During a background check for employment, I learned that I had two felony / criminal warrants. I immediately contacted Mr. Wayne. Mr. Wayne has exceptional communication skills and listened to my issues, assisted me in the collection of the correct data, and prepared the appropriate documentation for the courts. Mr. Wayne provided me with exceptional service from the very first contact until our last. He even made special arrangement to meet with me on a Sunday evening the day before our scheduled court date. Mr. Wayne's knowledge of the judicial system was flawless and his presence very well respected in the courts. While, I did not like the initial suggestion of self-surrender, I had complete faith in the professional guidance of Mr. Wayne and both warrants were cleared with one case being dismissed. I will continue to work with Mr. Wayne to resolve the other case; I predict favorable results. Mr. Wayne's continues to maintain the highest levels of standards to his clients and he is an exceptional example of ethical practice for other attorneys.

Mr. Wayne is a very worthwhile lawyer
I recently used Mr. Wayne's services and I am completely satisfied with the results. Mr. Wayne did a lot of work behind the scenes that kept things moving along. He is thoughtful, considerate, flexible and very knowledgeable. I hope I never have to, but I will use Mr. Wayne in the future.
