Chris Bugbee is a great Lawyer. He was there to listen, understand, reason and win the case. He is extremely talented and I would recommend him to anyone, and if I ever need a lawyer again I can assure you he will be mine.

I have an extensive criminal history, not wanting to continue with that lifestyle I turned myself around. Years after leading a productive life, I made a mistake of old times. This left me looking at an 80 month range for sentencing on new charges. At the time I had 2 small boys at home and was pregnant. Chris Bugbee was referred to me by another lawyer, who I trusted very much. When Chris took on my case he was very compassionate about my situation. He took the time to explain all my options to me and helped me to understand what was going on. There was a time that I was incarcerated for these charges and Chris made a point to come and see me weekly, by him doing that I had peace of mind and didn’t feel forgotten. The court proceedings were continued out for almost 2 years. With his experience and knowledge of the law he found an alternative program for me called FOSA. With that program I am able to do a strict probation and not be away from my family. Chris Bugbee’s dedication is amazing and I believe that he works hard and is committed to his clients.

If you have been arrested for DUI in or near Spokane, I highly recommend that you check out Chris Bugbee, his team and his website. There's a ton of free information available to get your started. If you are serious about your future you should not be hiring a lawyer based on lowest fee. Do your research and find a lawyer with experience and a proven track record.
