Second to none
Stan is masterful at his craft. I got myself into a pickle and received a favorable outcome. Excellent service. Easy to communicate and he doesn’t judge. Affordable. Highly recommend.

Being proactive got me a great deal
I was charged with my first (and hopefully last) DUI in 2023, and I needed someone to help me navigate the process. I chose Stan based on research I did online, and I'm happy to say I made a great choice. Stan started off by suggesting immediate steps I could take to start satisfying requirements he knew were forthcoming from the court. He then used my early start on those steps to negotiate a pretrial diversion agreement that was far better than what I thought I was facing at the outset. As long as I stay out of further trouble, I will plead guilty to negligent driving at the end of the diversion period. I do not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone facing a similar situation.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Mr. Glisson represented me recently and helped me get through one of the most overwhelming times in my life. He is very understanding, and I respected and trusted every single word he said. I was ready to give in to something I knew was not right just to get my case over with. After listening to Mr. Glisson and hearing his thoughts and words of wisdom, I wholeheartedly had faith everything would work out. My case was dismissed and I have Mr. Glisson to thank for that. He is very kind, communicates, shares his opinions, professional and ALWAYS put me at ease after speaking with him. I could not have asked for a better outcome or lawyer!!!!!!!

I am so very happy we hired Stan. All charges dropped!!! I can’t rave about him enough. I tell all my friends that if they ever need a criminal defense attorney in Kitsap that Stan is who they need to call. I texted Stan on a Saturday morning on Mother’s Day weekend. He got right back to me, took our case, and was already taking care of things Monday morning. He is very kind and talks you through each step with honest reassurance. He is responsive to your questions and concerns. I’m so very thankful for him.

Best Lawyer I’ve ever heard/had in my life!
My struggle started when I was convicted of a second DUI and had to have a blow and go device for 5 years with other requirements involved. A 90 day license suspension turned into a year. Stan wasn’t about to let that happen. Stan was my second attorney in the case and I felt I was being robbed of justice in my defense. He was very knowledgeable and cared for me to make things right as I had been biking to work waiting to get my life back. This was all during COVID-19 so we had many over the phone conversations and emails because Stan put in the work to get to the bottom of this. He didn’t think my punishment was fair and saw I was a good person of this community who had made a mistake and surely paid the consequences. After a virtual court ruling Stan was able to get me back on the road without a blow and go, I can leave the state again. My commute to work and other destinations have made my life so much easier and I am forever thankful that I met Stan. He is a good dude in my book and I will have no problem referencing him to anyone I come across who needs help like I did. Thanks again Stan!

Stan is an excellent defense attorney. I would hire him again without hesitation.
Summary: I highly recommend Stan Glisson. Stan represented me recently in a criminal case that went to trial. The verdict was 'not guilty'. He studied at UW Law, was a prosecutor for several years, and is now a seasoned criminal defense attorney. He will give you the peace of mind you're looking for to get through whatever you're going through. A more detailed review is below. Detailed review: Stan recently represented me in a criminal matter. There was a lot on the line and I was looking for the best. I spoke to another attorney in Kitsap County who is a 30+ year seasoned attorney with an excellent reputation... he had too much on his schedule to take my case. After speaking with me about my case, this seasoned attorney recommended Stan Glisson. I called Stan, and after speaking with him, I knew he was the one. Stan is both an excellent speaker and listener. He has confidence without arrogance. From the day I hired him, to the first day of trial, Stan did two of the most important things an attorney can do for his client, he followed-through and communicated. If he said he was going to do something, he did it. If he recommended against doing something, he explained his reasoning. Once trial started, it got even better. A trial has a lot of moving parts, and is extremely stressful. He was prepared for trial and knew the details of my case. He was calm, cool and collected (and again, confident without being arrogant). Because Stan was a prosecutor for several years, he knows how each side works. That is a good thing! I would have hired him anyway, but that is a major advantage in my book. Stan is who you want fighting for you leading up to trial, and is absolutely who you want if your case goes all the way to trial without settling. Hire with confidence. You'll be very glad you did.

Legal Representation
I received a ticket for speeding. I was afraid what would happen to my insurance rates if a speeding ticket was on my record. I contacted Stan Glisson who took care of everything for me. Not only was the ticket reduced but it was reduced so it would not show on my driving record. Stan was amazing and I would highly recommend him to everyone I know.

Excellent Representation
Stan represented my son. Stan worked well and was respectful of my son. He was prepared for the trial. Stan has a professional and considerate court demeanor which I believe has a positive influence with the jurors. When the judge ruled that critical information was inadmissible, Stan persevered. He maintained a positive outlook that helped keep my son calm during the trial. His overwhelmingly respectful and considerate court presence, together with his knowledge of the law made Mr. Glisson an excellent selection. We chose him based on references of a friend and were very satisfied.

In a system that can be impersonal and inhumane, Stan has a unique blend of skills that allow him to achieve incredible results for his clients, while garnering the utmost respect from judges and opponents as well."

"Stan is a great attorney who takes the time to review client's cases and discuss their case with them in great detail. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and has great results in cases where a great result looks unattainable. When dealing with DUI's, license suspensions, or any other case involving the Department of Licensing, I am always amazed at how well he understands the complexities involved with those cases, many times knowing more than the Department of Licensing themselves."
