    I handle every thing from minor traffic infractions to homicides. Additionally, I have successfully defended clients against a number of sexual assault and molestation allegations winning acquitals from a jury. The two sweetest words a defendant care hear are "Not Guilty!"

    DUI charges can happen to almost anyone and for many of my clients it is their first and only brush with the criminal justice system. A system that is especially terrifying for the inexperienced.

I HAVE DEDICATED MY CAREER TO HELPING GOOD PEOPLE WHO ARE CHARGED WITH A CRIME

I am a sole practitioner and only take a limited number of clients a year. I do not employ associate attorneys or law students. If you hire me you get me, guaranteed. There are some firms where you meet the “old man” on the first day. You may believe you are hiring him, when the reality is that after your money has been collected you will never see him again and you are shuffled off to an underling who handles your case.

That will not happen at the Law Office of Timothy S. Note. When your freedom is at stake it is important to know and feel comfortable with who is representing you. I do not take more cases than I can handle. The benefit to you is that when you hire me, I make sure that I am accessible to you. If you call my office I will generally call you back that same day.

A Magic Man
I cannot adequately describe the difference that Tim has made in my life. He literally saved me. For nearly 6 months my case went nowhere with my previous attorney. After hiring Tim my case was dismissed within a single month. Not found “not guilty”, but completely DISMISSED my case altogether. I didn’t know that was even possible! I don’t know what he has, but he seemed to have a special rapport with the prosecutor that immediately gave him a sense of optimism that hadn’t been present before. Once again, my case went nowhere for 6 months and then when Tim took over I had total resolution in my favor. I cannot recommend Tim any higher and I am certain you will have the same experience with him.

Professional and very hard working
Tim is a proactive, professional and hard working attorney. He took my case and was able to resolve the issue in a very short time and with a very good result. He was proactive, calling me to resolve issues as they came up and he made every effort to see that I received fair treatment. I would highly recommend Tim for any legal problems you may be involved in.

Tim was the best choice I could have made
When I hired Tim I was looking a serious charges. He did everything to make sure I understood what was going on with my case at all times and when had any questions or concerns I never had a problem getting ahold of Tim. After a very long year we Ultimately went to trial where Tim was amazing and fought for me to be found not guilty on all charges. Without a doubt the best choice I could have made and I will never forget what he did for me.....THANK YOU TIM!!!

Exceptional Legal Representation: A Review of Attorney Tim Note
I had the privilege of working with Tim Note as my criminal attorney, and I cannot express enough how grateful I am for his exceptional legal representation. From the moment I first consulted with Tim, I knew I was in capable hands. Tim's deep knowledge of criminal law and his dedication to his clients are truly commendable. He left no stone unturned in building a strong defense for my case. His attention to detail, thorough research, and strategic approach were instrumental in achieving a favorable outcome. What sets Tim apart is not just his legal expertise, but also his genuine compassion and understanding. He took the time to listen to my concerns, address my questions, and provide reassurance throughout a challenging legal process. His clear communication and guidance made me feel empowered and informed every step of the way. Tim's professionalism and commitment to securing the best possible result for his clients are evident in every aspect of his work. He fought tirelessly on my behalf, and I could not have asked for a more dedicated advocate. Thanks to Tim Note's legal prowess and unwavering support, my case was resolved successfully. I highly recommend Tim to anyone seeking a top-notch criminal attorney who goes above and beyond for their clients. He is not just an excellent lawyer but also a true advocate for justice.

Saved me twice
This man has gone so far above and beyond to help me get through the scary painful process of dealing with court for the first time, and came to my aid a second time when I missed a mandatory class and got called in again. Can’t say I was the easiest client but Mr Note was always helpful and professional and I would recommend him to anyone who needs legal defense. I never plan to need his services again but if I ever found myself in that situation I wouldn’t hesitate to call him again.

Awesome Results!
Tim took my case and within a week had it resolved. I was anxious about how things would go, and he got my case dismissed in a few days. He did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone seeking a criminal attorney.

Excellent attorney
Tim Note represented me in a case that could have ruined my life. I handed him an enormous amount of documents and information. After he read through it he immediately grasped what happened and was able to tell my story as it happened and began submitting documents to the judge. what seemed certain to go to trial ended up being thrown out with all charges dismissed. I am very grateful to Mr.Note and all of his hard work.

Very professional
Tim Note helped me with a domestic violence case that had been going on for a few years. After hiring him it only took him a few months to settle the case with a very satisfactory outcome. I can't thank him enough and wish I would have hired him sooner.

You are in good hands
After being arrested for Domestic Violence (for what I thought was a 50/50 argument and dispute) I thought my life was over, or forever changed for the worse. I had to surrender my firearm from a restraining order, and so on. Timothy got my charge reduced to Disorderly Conduct (which was inline with what actually occurred), I got my fireman back and he was actually able to broker a deal to have my charges dismissed. I’m a veteran, so Timothy introduced me to the Spokane Veterans Court. He got me enrolled, and I attended a year long rehabilitation program. Upon graduating, my charges were dismissed and I was/am a stronger and better man than ever. I am appreciative of Timothy for his one on one approach with me. He definitely helped calm and right my ship. You can’t go wrong with Tim. Thank you.

Felony DV Charges
I hired Tim to handle my defense in the charges that were filed against me. Tim took the case and was very effective in getting the charges handled and done in a "lighting fast" manner. If I ever was in a spot again and it was something that Tim handled, I would hire him again in a hot minute!!! Tim is very knowledgeable in the areas he has practice in and is also very upfront about what to expect as far as time frames, resolution of the case and expectations of what he needs from you as a client. Again, I can not place a high enough recommendation for Tim, if you are in need of an attorney, Tim is the one to call.

Saved my life
Case Dismissed!!! Don’t waste your time shopping around Tim Note is the man! I found myself falsely charged with fourth degree assault and domestic violence over a accident that occurred. I was beyond stressed and scared of losing my job in the medical field, gun rights and reputation. I met with Tim and immediately felt confident that he was the right lawyer to help me get the case dismissed. He worked with the prosecutor and after some time I received a call asking who my favorite lawyer was! Of course Tim Note! I can’t thank Tim enough for helping me get through this. Do not hesitate to hire him immediately!

This laywer knows his stuff
Tim was honest yet professional. He helped us navigate the courts and answered all our questions we had. We started with a consult and hired him down the line, his advice saved us. What surprised us is during the consult phase before we hired him he answered his phone to us. He showed no judgement. He was available when we needed to talk to him and was able to call us in a timely manner. He was very personable and made us feel comfortable each time we had court. I don't know where we would be without his defense. He was able to get some pretty serious charges dismissed. He was extremely comfortable/ knowledgeable in the court room. He is worth the money and was reasonably priced. When it comes down to your defense and your family pay for a defense lawyer don't get stuck with a public defender.

If I could give 6 stars I would!
Tim is an excellent attorney! Hard-working,honest, and straight to the point. I am an out-of-state resident and received a DUI in Washington in August of 2021. Hiring Tim was the best decision I could have made... he walked me through every aspect of my case and genuinely cared that I understood the process and what I could do in my situation. He and his staff are respectful and professional in every aspect. I definitely recommend them!

Free Advice for DUI
I left a message at his office and Tim called back within a day to help give me some advice on my DUI case. He simply explained what I needed to do to be able to drive and gave me information that I couldn't find anywhere else. If I hadn't already been to court, I would have hired Tim as my lawyer. He was great!!
