I would recommend Norm to anyone. I was really impressed with the personalized service I received from Norm. along with everyone at the Rhoades Legal Group.
I contacted Rhoades Legal Group four days prior to my trial date for a felony charge, looking more for advice. I was immediately put through to Norman Partington, who spent 45 min talking over the phone helping with what questions and concerns I had. Well, needless to say, I met with him first thing the following morning at their Seattle office. I met with a team of three attorneys whom all were there asking questions and available to answer mine and tell me what they could do for me. They provided me with worst/best case scenario and without pressure left the decision with me. I had been working with a public defender who told me the best possible outcome would be over a month in jail, without any alternatives and then supervised probation for two years. I am a single mom and jail was not an option in my eyes. My public defender informed me that I should be happy with what they offered and that there was not a lawyer out there who could convince the prosecutor not to give me jail time. Norm did!!! Norm was at every courtdate, on time (even with the hour he had to commute). Now, remember, I hired him two to three days prior to when I was supposed to be sentenced. Norm was there, prepared, and I am thankfully not doing any jail time and home with my daughter!! Thanks Norm and everyone at Rhoades Legal Group for helping me out and doing such a great job!!

During a mental health episode, I was in the care of an emergency worker and I tried to escape. It got physical, and I was charged with 3rd degree felony assault. After I stabilized psychologically, Norm was able to work with the DA to get me a 1-year Stipulated Order of Continuance, which means that the (now reduced) charge will go away completely as long as I continue my mental health treatment and stay out of trouble.
This has been my only interaction with the justice system, and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome, all thanks to Norm. He also has a fantastic "bedside manner"--while I was still struggling to get on an even keel, Norm answered his phone on multiple occasions and talked me down. He'd make a great counselor, in addition to already being a great attorney.
In short, if you want an intelligent, understanding attorney who knows his stuff, hire Norm Partington.

Norm assisted me in attaining relief from the duty to register as a sex offender. The petition he drafted was "bulletproof", and covered all the bases to ensure it would be well received by the judge. (which it was) He's very professional and affable, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Norm, and his firm the Meryhew Law Group, are "the" go-to firm for these kinds of petitions. Thanks again, Norm!

Norm has more experience than the combined experience of most criminal defense firms. He has seen it all and argued it. Calm under pressure and loves to go to trial. Prosecutors know that too which will help clients.
