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!

I am very grateful I get the opportunity to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for all of the hard work and diligence my attorney Norman Dean Partington Jr provided throughout the entire long and difficult process. What impressed me the most about Norm was how he treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal help, especially when it involves the removal of your Juvenile Registration Requirements. Norman thank you again for all of your hard work in helping me win my case.

Norm was very, I mean very personable, trustworthy, knowledeable non-judgemental and informative. If I had a question - he had an answer that was sincere and called it as it is. He represented his law firm in a professional manner. During the (hearing) he showed up ready, prepared and totally outclassed the prosecution. (Not a knock at the prosecutor because he has a job to do himself.) I was in awe as he spat out RCW's and did not once have to review notes. All free flowing and it showed professionalism, I felt he was always one or two steps ahead of the prosecution, he addressed all the concerns and took control with confidence and passion in a field that is unfavorable to most. I felt comfortable with not only Norm but the whole law firm of Rhodes and Meryhew including Alissa and Danica.

Norm was tremendously helpful to me during what was a very difficult time. Arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance, I was referred to him by a friend of mine who had a great experience with Norm when he was tight spot, and told to expect to calm down a lot once I had a chance to talk the situation over with Norm and his assistant, Alissa.
Sure enough, after a free consultation, I had a much more realistic idea of the position I was in, and felt confident that I had hired a knowledgable and well-connected lawyer who gave me a great chance against my pending charges. This feeling only increased as I met with Norm several times and found him to be very likable and relatable. He is truly dedicated to his clients and ready to fight as hard as necessary on their behalf.
In the end we reached a settlement agreement and I did not have to serve any jail time. The price was fair and the service was excellent; Norm is truly a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him!

Mr. Partington is a top-notch lawyer. I was charged with a crime in which the DA's office threw the books at me. Norm significantly reduced my charges and resultantly my punishment. I would personally recommend him to anyone for the defense of any crime whatsoever. He is a tenacious trial attorney. When you're thrown into the judicial system, it's great to have someone who is smart, strong, and reassuring in your corner. Norm is the man. Wonderful attorney.

I shared office space with Mr. Partington for five years in Pioneer Square, Seattle (2005 - 2010). We practiced the same specialty in law (criminal defense) so were able to observe each other's practice, collaborate on many cases, and cover appearances for each other when necessary. While possessing prodigious empathy and generosity for clients, Mr. Partington also consistently displayed a command of aggressive litigation tactics. Finally, his over twenty years of experience has resulted in strong professional relationships with most prosecutors and an encyclopedic knowledge of judges throughout Washington.

Norm exceeded every expectation I had set during the intitial consultation. Throughout the legal process I came to realize the level that judges, fellow attorneys and prosecutors respect his presence in court. He spoke with authority and continually fought for the very best outcome in each of my court appearences.
I have recommended Norm to both family members and close friends.
If I ever find myself in a position where I need legal advice, Norm will be my first phone call.
