At the recommendation of my local Yakima attorney I hired Mark Chmelewski to fight my traffic infraction. He is a known expert for traffic offenses. He makes no promises, which I think is wise, but he knows what to look for to win your case. If there is a way to win your case Mark has the experience to do it. My case was dismissed. Mark knows what to look for, he has been a judge and attorney for a long time. I would recommend him to anyone and I do.

Our Son hired Mr. Chmelewski and made an excellent choice. It is a leap of faith to trust someone long distance and we have no regrets. Mark was so professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. He did not sugar-coat the situation but did everything in his power to put the best case forward and was very successful. He took the time to visit the crime scene, talk to everyone involved and make our son feel like had an advocate and friend on his side. There were lessons learned without a permanent impact on his record. We are so thankful!
We found out how well respected Mark is in the court system and we would highly recommend him.

I have been a Seattle attorney for over 35 years. I hired Mark to represent my minor child in a Criminal-Traffic case. In spite of some very compelling extenuating circumstances, the case was going very badly. Mark took over and immediately set to work advising what to do and not do, anticipated standard requests by both the prosecution and the judge. Within a short period of time, Mark had the case entirely turned around, and it ended in a great result with no record. Mark has been a judge, prosecutor, and a defense lawyer at several locations in Central Washington, and has tried cases throughout the State. His wife is a retired judge. I cannot imagine a better informed, better connected, nor better prepared lawyer for a criminal case in that part of the State. Mark has my highest recommendation.

I endorse this lawyer. I recently had the opportunity to sit in on one of Mark's trials. I reserved enough time to see PTC, jury selection and the entire trial through verdict. I could go on about the details, but the most important things are that he had this jury before selection was finished, he was prepared for anything so I can tell that he worked very hard on this case before getting here. He knew all the facts and all relevant laws. He stood up and fought for his client. But most importantly, he appeared to have a great time doing it. I highly recommend Mark and his team.
