Overall great person especially for a lawyer! ;) j/k
Lawyers tend to get a bad wrap yes even defense attorneys. Braden represented me on two overlapping cases and never made me feel any kind of way. He probably could tell from my face that i already felt the full embarrassing weight of having to come to him with the added burden of another case whilst litigating the first....despite us not seeing eye to eye politically he still defended my second amendment rights and even got my firearm returned to me. Which i thought would never happen and was very satisfying to go down to city hall and receive my gun back. Even though the crooked Marysville cops still have my magazine and holster for some very strange reason I'm proud to say my firearm remains in my possession. Braden, throughout the two years he represented me always made sure i was on time and informed about what time and where I needed to be and despite not having seen an end to my Marysville drama still give Mr. Pence a 5 star review. He's a great guy and so extremely well respected in the community that if you pick him for some reason get priority treatment from even the worst judges/prosecutors and never have to worry about sitting and waiting for your name to get called in alphabetical order. i'm sure many lawyers are granted that respect its just a really cool feeling to know that you are being represented by a winner like Braden one of the best. Also just so its known just because I couldn't jump through the ridiculous b/s that the Marysville court requires of a person that is gainfully employed and living an otherwise productive tax paying lifestyle doesn't take away from the great job he will do for anyone he represents. Pick Braden and you wont regret it I never have.

Excellent Defense Lawyer
I was very fortunate to have Braden represent me in my DUI case in Snohomish County. Thanks to his hard work and knowledge, the result was a full dismissal. He kept me updated on the status of my case, was clear on the potential benefits and consequences of all my legal courses of action and ultimately helped me get all charges dropped. Throughout the entire proceeding, I felt confident in his ability and advice. Braden's an excellent lawyer and I highly recommend him.

First Amendment rights successfully defended
Braden Pence successfully represented me on a charge by the Seattle Police Department of "Excessive Use of Horn". The charge was related to my honking my car's horn in a display of approval of the Occupy Seattle encampment as I drove by it. Braden was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the charge, prior to trial, on the basis that my 1st Amendment free speech rights had been violated by the SPD.

I had an excellent experience working with Braden and have recommended him to several friends and colleagues. He was open, honest and compassionate. I felt he really heard me and my needs and was really working for an solution that was in my best interest. Having Braden by my side during that really stressful and uncertain time was a huge relief. I have nothing but good things to say about working with him.

Extremely thorough and professional
Extremely professional and communicative. Excellent results in a very short amount of time. I feel both that I now have an excellent attorney I can trust but also some one who I view as a friend.

Humble, thoughtful, knowledgable.
He's fantastic. Thoughtful, receptive, and listened. We're still in the middle of the case but I have confidence in his ability to do the best possible. Definitely consider him.
