Mr. Gilbert Levy (Gil) simply exceeded my expectations in helping me go through a frightening period of my life. He has passionately, intelligently, and vigorously fought for me until I was acquitted of all charges:
I was facing a challenging felony case coupled with a ferocious prosecution. Due to the complex nature of the charges and their ramifications, I knew that I needed a smart attorney who is able to bring his expertise and think out of the box to save me. After screening several attorneys, I was lucky enough to contact Gil who devotedly gave me ample time to understand my case and provided me with an honest/professional assessment. I knew, then, that Gil would be the best advocate for me.
After several months of court appearances, hearings, preparation and Gil's hard work; I took my case to trial where, even though extremely stressful, I enjoyed watching Gil skillfully breaking every step of the prosecutor’s case, brilliantly finding key inconsistencies in their witnesses, and passionately presenting evidence in my defense to the jury. A Not-Guilty verdict was returned after a day and half of deliberation.
I thank you Gil and your team for your dedication, compassion and for all the hard work.

After I gave my life savings to another defense attorney who should have worked for the prosecutor, I found Gil. Mr. Levy doesn't look to plead out every case but works his cases hard before counseling his clients on a course of action. Many defense attorneys leave their clients confused and broke at the jailhouse door, but Gil walked me through the process of restitution agreements, prison designation and self-surrendering. That attention to the finer points of judgment and commitment orders, length of probation, and the judge's statement of reason made as much of a difference as the length of my sentence. Working in the legal field now, I know that Gil Levy is among the elite criminal defense attorneys not just in Washington or the Northwest but the country. He has profoundly good judgment and counsel. Anybody terrified to be in facing a criminal conviction places themselves in sound hands by retaining Gil Levy as counsel.

Gil and Jen defended me on a few complicated cases where I would have spent a number of years in jail. I was able to avoid jail time all together. They both responded immediately anytime I would call and gave me their personal cell phone numbers to call them at anytime. They both treated me like they cared about me as a friend and not just a client or a number. They are both animal lovers, which in my opinion makes them that much more human. I would recommend Gil and Jen to anyone facing large or small criminal cases and would like to be treated with respect and dignity and not just a paycheck.
Thank You Gil and Jen
