Excellent legal representation
Mr. Weaver did an excellent job of defending my driving record from the allegations put forth upon me and succeeded in significantly reducing the severity of my alleged infraction. Tom and his staff were professional, responsive, and effective in their combined efforts. I would highly recommend choosing them for your legal representation if you require it!

Saved My Life
Tom Weaver is without question a phenomenal attorney. I retained him to represent me in a case where law enforcement had unjustly targeted and arrested me and subsequently charged me with a very serious crime. I was looking at spending the next decade behind bars. Tom did not hesitate to dive into the case law and find a bulletproof argument which resulted is the dropping of all charges against me. He was easy to communicate with - direct and to the point, and he approached my case with confidence and clarity. He did not resign himself to just one line of defense but instead came at my case from various angles and immediately began to develop multiple approaches to my defense. He knows the law and when he’s in front of the judge (or jury) he owns the courtroom… certainly in Kitsap County and undoubtedly anywhere else he practices regularly. This guy WINS cases. Period. The best 5k I ever spent in my life. Thanks Tom!!

Nonprofit Director
Mr. Weaver successfully defended my teenager for two moving violations that could have significantly impacted his driving privileges and costs of insurance. He was able to get one dismissed and the other dropped to a non-moving violation. The professionalism and warmth extended by his office was very much appreciated, let alone the outcome. I highly recommend him as a lawyer!

Pure Gold! Absolutely amazing attorney ...
Mr. Tom Weaver is a phenomenal attorney, and person. A family member retained him for me, and before I ever met him he was already showing up for my first hearing with only a couple hours notice. He is well respected in the courtroom and his industry, with good reason. He immediately took control of everything, assured me that I was in the very best hands, and he got the most favorable outcome that was possible in my situation, that’s right, a full dismissal. It was warranted, but he fought very hard for me. Not only did he do his job, he went well above and beyond. He worked with me on price, and it seems like he took a personal interest in making sure that I was safe and things would turn out OK for me. His heart is in the right place! His office staff including Allison and Alicia and another member of his team Jim, were all top professionals as well. Thank you Tom, for everything you’ve done for me. I am eternally grateful. If you’re looking for the best attorney, look no further, you just found him ! :)

Great Help
Mr. Weaver was clear and concise with what he could and could not do. He did exactly as he said and there were no surprises or extra fees.

Smart, strategic and successful!
Tom handled an extremely sensitive and difficult case for my family with a thorough and strategic investigation I doubt other attorneys would have managed as well. He was in complete control and prepared for trial, dominating with subtle and, when needed, forceful effectiveness. I trust him and am eternally grateful for Tom!

From facing possible Life to getting my Life Back.
Tom Weaver did an amazing job in assuring my freedom from day one. His attention to details, his inquisitive demeanor and his thoughtful responses to my initial questions were enough to bring my walls down and allow him to help me. Throughout the process of my case Tom worked diligently with various resources to ensure that my case was well represented and that all the facts were presented and examinable. He personally tracked down emails, correspondence and general inquires into why my case was stagnating and how we could get it moved along. With his enormous understanding of the court systems, Tom made moves at and during all of my appearances that alleviated some less than desirable outcomes. His knowledge of the law, how it's applied to situations on a case by case basis and his understanding of previously tried cases really showed thru. He was mindful of my schedule as a working professional and was available as if I were his only client. He and his assistant Alisha, provided the utmost care in making this case come and go as smoothly as possible. Without Tom Weaver and his dedication to providing defense for people like me, I would no doubtedly not be able to write this review from the comfort of my home. Thank you again Tom and staff for clearing my name and protecting my freedom.

Low Maintenance Results
Tom argued a substantial speeding ticket for me. The fine was reduced and more importantly the infraction did not end up going against my driving record. The process was quick and easy. Tom'a office is clear about what they will do for you but follow up is your responsibility.

If I could put negative stars I would!!
Mr weaver did my appeal for a cps case that had nothing to do with me. My name was never in no slogans what's so ever! I told my weaver I want to be at my appeal two times. I only talk to Mr weaver twice for like 3 min. Every time I called his female assistant would say his busy or not there. Long story short Mr weaver and his assistant would not give me the login for court told me that I'm not allowed to attend my appeal. Not only that how can Mr weaver defend me and turn in my appeal if he talk to me twice for only a second!? I finally got the report he turned in. It was like the social worker said here turn this in. Mr weaver assistance hung up on me when I called demanding a call in number to attend my appeal. I plan on filling a lawsuit here soon . I would stay far away from Mr weaver as possible. His work can't be trusted period
