I am a criminal defense attorney from Seattle that primarily works in Olympia. I became a criminal defense attorney because I love helping people and feel that too often the scales of justice are tipped in the favor of the State and that jail is often times not the answer. People deserve someone that passionatly advocates for their cause and I feel honored to be able to do that for a living.

Put your case into his hands
I've been fortunate enough to have been defended by justin gray in 2020 on allegation of felony assault, as a result that case was dismissed a few days before trial. I had some trouble a year later, and looking at a manditory minimum sentence of five years, on each of my three seperate case's for felony domestic violence protection order violations, and felony possession of a firearm, that's 5, 10, or 15 years in prison. Justin Gray magically managed to get me a little time in jail and no probation. If you don't choose justin gray law, your not doing everything you can.

This guy is awesome
I had first been assigned Justin grey to help resolve a case in which I got a great deal, he was very communicative and easy going. I wasn't more happy with how things turned out for me. Then I was assigned him again in another case about one year later inwhich he helped resolve with ease, and knowing that he was helping just made things much less stressful. He's a awesome public defender, and I have enjoyed having him on my team. 10/10.

Very competent and effective
My case was appointed to Mr. Gray, through Beckwith Law. Although I had to fly into Seattle for three pre-trials from Washington DC between September and March, Mr. Gray delivered a great resolution with the prosecutors to settle my case. Mr. Gray always followed up with me to keep me updated with my case. He had a proactive approach in reaching a favorable deal for my defense. He made me feel like I was a priority, which was very important, considering I was dealing with a very disconcerting legal matter, unrelated to DUI/DWI. Mr. Gray showed great competency in comprehending what actually happened in my case (as I learned that Seattle Municipal does not take the charges I was charged with lightly at all) which made me feel like he actually cared and gave his fully undivided attention to my case. After enduring 8 months of a legal battle, Mr. Gray delivered for me, and was finally able to put to an end a very grueling and strenuous time for me. Thanks, Justin.

Prepared and well-versed in the law
My experience with Justin has been nothing short of great. I came to him so nervous and everything was an "unknown". He was able to explain the process to me and possible outcomes in a way that was informative, yet comforting. In the end, my cases ended well for me and I have Justin to thank for representing me.

Justin Gray Recommendation
Having no meaningful contact with the justice system I have little experience to make a comparison. That said, I was completely satisfied with how Justin Gray handled my DV court appearances and with the outcome of my case. He was quick to respond to my inquiries and gave my concerns the weight I felt they deserved. In addition, he is a very likeable fellow.

Lethe most incredible person ever
Justin Gray was my lawyer who represents me when I was filing to adjust my immigration status. He is one of the most compassionate, the most understanding, the most caring, and the most dedicated lawyer that I have ever seen. He is committed to his job as a lawyer and goes his way to make sure his clients needs are met as how they like it to be. My experienced with him was terrific, he has never delayed me of anything his patients was off the hook and he has an amazing way of dealing with people. He sees your problem as his, and he never get tired of answering questions and clearing off concerns. I will recommend him as one of the best lawyers around after my experience with him. I pray that you reach to the roof top as how you wish it, and sky is the limit.
