From the moment that we were introduced, David treated me like a person and not just another case. Is it weird to say that you're going to miss your attorney? Each time we met it always felt like I was seeing a friend again, his caring and good-natured demeanor helped keep me calm and steady during an extremely stressful time of my life.
He is obviously very experienced and has a commanding knowledge of DUI defense law. After reviewing the facts of my arrest and the charges that were being brought against me, he took the time to clearly explain the possible outcomes (best and worst-case scenarios) and to describe what his experience has been with cases that were similar to mine. At the end of our first meeting we discussed his fee structure, which was very competitive compared to what I had been led to believe I would be paying for a defense attorney based on a handful of internet searches. I left his office that first day feeling supported and understood, and there was no need for me to shop around: I knew I was going to hire him.
Throughout the duration of my case he always very clearly explained the actions he was taking and what I should expect for our next court date. Whenever I felt the need to reach out for support or to have a question answered, he found the time in his schedule to talk and to provide reassurance. He was extremely professional, and I always had full confidence that he was taking every possible action to see that we achieved the best result my case.
And in the end, WE WON! Seeing him in action as he presented my case, questioned witnesses and held the prosecutor to a high standard of argument was amazing. The court clearly thought so too, as the judge ruled in our favor and I was able to leave the courthouse that day with an enormous weight lifted from my shoulders.

David is an excellent Defense attorney and more than that, just a fantastic human being. During the course of 1 year i worked with him on my case, he has been a great friend, counselor, mentor and he is always available 24x7 365 days either in person, phone, text or email. I had a very difficult case with high bac and bad driving. David worked hard to identify possibilities for suppressing my bac results. He then set me up to win in my jury trial and i got my case dismissed with a verdict "not guilty". This past 1 year was the most excruciating year in my life and when ever i am stressed i have reached out to David and he has always coached me through those stressful times and helped me make make the right decisions. He genuinely cared and wanted to see me succeed. I am also a non immigrant resident working here in Washington. This made the case even more challenging and he very patiently and skilfully negotiated every minor detail of my case with prosecution and jury to help me win. I will definitely recommend David to fight your legal battle. If there is anyone who can help you win with a high probability, it will be David.

This was my first time having to deal with anything like and DUI, and as you can imagine it was extremely nerve-racking and stressful. From our very first phone call to our last day in court he completely made me feel at ease and informed. I was a college student at the time and he was extremely positive and understanding of my mistake, even working with me on a payment plan to get me through it all financially as well. Not only did David help me win my DOL civil case, he also got my DUI reduced to a negligent driving. I would HIGHLY recommend David O to anyone who has to go through this unfortunate situation. You will not regret it, it was sincerely one of the best decisions of my life. Thank you David!

I was seeking legal counsel about my DUI case from David and from the moment I called him I could already tell that his relationships with his clients go far above and beyond industry standards. Within minutes I felt like I was talking to not only an experienced lawyer, but also a close friend and mentor.
As he read through my documents, he was quick to explain to me different avenues or points of contention he found and was adamant about hearing my side of the story. Knowing that I was in a really tough spot, he was genuine about setting my expectations accordingly and gave great personal insight to put me at ease.
Based on his great communication skills, transparency, empathy, and professionalism, there is no one else I would recommend over David O if you unfortunately find yourself with a DUI charge. I've worked with other lawyers and I can honestly say that David is the only one that I can say that really cared about me and the outcome of my case.

I met with another DUI attorney before meeting with David. He asked me if I had met with any other attorneys before meeting with him, I said yes and told him which attorney I had met with. He knew her, had worked with her before, and said if I picked either of them he knew I would have great representation. It impressed me that he knew someone else that specializes in DUI cases, and he didn't choose to badmouth her to a potential client.
He is so nice! I was able to communicate with him very well and he was understanding. I was beating myself up for my dumb decision and he had some insight that helped me get past that.
We won my DOL case which is very hard to do. I was very pleasantly surprised and felt very lucky David represented me.
There were plenty of questions I had and David would respond to my emails and texts immediately. He was very hardworking.
The prosecutor gave me a plea deal of reckless driving, however David persisted until my case was dropped further. My civil charges got reduced to negligent driving and some community service.
I could not be happier with choosing David O to represent me. He did a great job and was worth every penny. I can't give him enough credit. He is amazing.

I was in an argument with my wife three months ago, and I was arrested and charged DV, me and my wife was shocked by this since we did not hurt each other at all. So after my wife bailed me out, we found David and asked him for help. He went over every detail with me and told me just relax, he will take care of me. And at the court date, he came with me and talked to prosecutor at the court, and prosecutor agreed on deferred prosecuting me! After three month, my case was dismissed, my bail was return and me and my wife are happy again!

David was highly recommended to me by a friend when I needed legal assistance for a DWI charge. When I contacted David he responded right away and it was comforting knowing that my legal problems were in good hands. He is very knowledgeable in this space and responded in a timely manner whenever I had questions or concerns around my case. When issues/concerns came up, David handled them very well. With his help, I was able to get the very best outcome for my case. Great guy to work with and a trustworthy person, I hope I never have to again but if I ever need another DWI lawyer, David will be the first to call.

David O is a humble human- being, who is always and willing to serve people according to passionate; reliability and as well confident. Well, to support my claim, he dealt with my four cases which were DUI in one year. To be honesty; I was not stable in finacially and yet he was there for me!!!!!! For sure not alot people could able to do that!!!!!! when I was stress, he was there to calm me down.
DAVID O' KNOWS HOW TO POKE THE CASES FOR SAKE OF SETTING PEOPLE FREE!!!!!!! ANYONE MAY GO FOR AN EXPENSIVE LAWYER, BUT THEY MAY SAVE THE JAIL TIME. TRY HIM AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY.
My experience with DAVID O is beyond what people could believe!!!! I will recomend anytime to anyone to hire him.

A family member was arrested for a DUI in 2011. After reviewing dozens of lawyers and interviewing a subset of them, I settled on David O, driven by the strength of David's peer reviews and legal record.
The DUI was plead down and reduced to a non-gross misdemeanor charge of negligent driving. Our efforts to fight the DOL administrative action, unfortunately, fell short. In both cases, David demonstrated due dilegence and competence from my perspective.
In the end, we were not disappointed. David O was honest, forthright, proactive, fairly priced, and effective -- the antithesis of what I had expected and feared. I will recommend him to friends and family, though I really hope I never have to again.

David O knows everything if not more about DUI cases. I was charged with my second DUI, and though we did not win the case, I sincerely know that no one could have done a better job than David. After the case was finished he ramained in touch with me guiding me through difficult decisions to come. Being charged with a major offense is a very stressful situation, however having David there really helped me keep my composure. When we were in trial he was advising and teaching the Prosecutors office about DUI's giving insight most of them did not have. He knows a lot of people in the court system and having someone who is known and well versed on DUI litigation I felt was a benefit to me and set my mind at ease during the weeks and months that were to follow. He is extremely reliable and on the rare occasions when you may have trouble contacting him just leave him a message and he will return your calls in a timely manner. For the majority of my trial period David was always there for me, and when he couldn't be there he made certain there was an assistant in court to get me through the process. However he was always there for all of the most important dates. Although we did not win my case, I know, without any doubt that no one could have provided better advice, assistance and friendship than David O. If you are in need of a lawyer, just take the free consultation with him and I have no doubt he will blow you away with his knowledge of the court system and the charges. I came to David as a complete mess after my accident but he truly worked with me on the case and helped get me through all the trials ahead. He is genuinely caring for you as a person and having him as my lawyer really had a calming effect throughout this ordeal. Overall you should not pass him up, he is seriously the best DUI defense lawyer out there, and I would know because I literally went door to door getting consultations from every lawyer in Seattle, and David O is, without a doubt, the best Defense Lawyer in the 206 area.
