Former Prosecutor and professionally trained trial lawyer.
JUSTICE AND EQUITY FOR ALL
We desire to bring equity and justice to everyone while ensuring vigorous and compassionate representation in DUI, criminal and personal injury matters. We are based in Tukwila, Washington, which serves as the mid-point between Seattle and Tacoma.
The Curtis Firm is wholly dedicated to helping clients faced with issues such as DUI, Criminal Defense or personal injury matters.
With over twelve years of considerable experience as a deputy prosecutor, extensive legal research and writing experience, James is your go-to attorney to represent you in King and Pierce County. At The Curtis Firm, we keenly believe that access to opportunity and justice are essential concepts and we strive to make this a reality for all.
It is our goal to work diligently with you to help you understand your constitutional rights and enforce them accordingly. We stand with you and battle with you in situations where your legal rights have been disregarded, leaving you a victim to discrimination in the criminal justice system, employment, housing, and education.
The Curtis Firm will educate you during the entire process, helping you make informed decisions. We put to good use our years of experience and practice in the field to bring out the best solutions for you. Our priority is that you seek the justice you desire, and for this reason, we represent you, stand by you, and with you in any case. So ultimately, when there is a call for justice, The Curtis Firm answers.
We look forward to serving you!
