Mr. Munson is an extremely approachable, non intimidating attorney to work with. I needed some cleanup of some old criminal records and was referred to Mr. Munson by a previous attorney that was no longer taking cases of my kind. I'm very ignorant when it comes to the legal system, Mr. Munson easily and calmly explained things to me in a way I could understand. I really felt as though I had legal counsel that was listening to me, was empathetic to my issues, and was non judgmental. He seemed eager to get things done, not afraid to call and ask why things aren't moving like they should. His office staff is very friendly, respectful, and professional. The fee I was charged was very fair, cheaper than I had expected, that was a pleasant surprise! I Hope to never be in the situation where I would need legal representation of this kind again, but if I do find myself there, without hesitation, I'm calling Mr. Munson.

Try to fine a lawyer to handle my vacation of a felony and restoration of firearms right Avvo lead my to Carl and I couldn't be happier. He handled everything both in Whatcom and Skagit courts.
He handled the firearms restoration in Whatcom with great ease getting it done quickly. When some problems came up he dealt with them and got it done
He handled the vacation of a class c felony in Skagit. When they were slow on their end and did not do their part he was on it and held them to what they need to do and he got that done as well.
His flat fee was also nice you knew what it would cost up front no question later on what you needed to pay. I would use this lawyer again if needed and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Carl helped my son with a very complicated case that involved multiple court dates. From the beginning, he conjectured as to how he saw the outcome. Carl was right in every single instance. Therefore, I see him as an intelligent, knowledgeable lawyer. He is also very trustworthy and incredibly honest. I was nervous hiring a lawyer, but felt completely confident in Carl's advice after our first meeting and appreciated his knowledge throughout a lengthy process. Moreover, his fee was incredibly fair and reasonable.
Overall, I felt that Carl was very compassionate towards my son, extremely saavy in his understanding of the legal system, very reliable, and a lawyer whom I believed cared about the outcome for my son's sake. I was also confident that the legal system trusted Carl's reputation and each time we went to court, was relieved that he was helping us. I highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again if the need arises. You really can't go wrong with Carl Munson as your lawyer!

Attorney Munson's advice is spot on; as shown by the answers he has posted to questions on criminal law, he takes the time to answer questions in a common sense manner and plainly addresses legal issues. (As one of my practice areas, I have been a misdemeanor prosecutor for a small town in Yavapai County, Arizona for six years).
