  • Billie Renee Morelli

    If you have a search and seizure issue, Jeff is your man - he knows the 4th Amendment and Privacy Law like the back of his hand. He is also an expert negotiator to reach the best possible outcome in your case even when it seems like all hope is lost. Jeff has been advocating for those accused of drug crimes for decades and has helped shaped Washington law. I've learned much of what I know in this area from Jeff himself. He always has time for his clients and will sit down and explain all the details so you understand. I recommend Jeffrey Steinborn.
