Incompatant!
I had him in a case that went to trial and he didn't file a thing to help with my defense. He made me believe that he truly cared about my case yet when it came down to fighting in court, he did nothing. His cross examination was weak at best. He wouldn't listen to my concerns in fact he dismissed them entirely. If you have Dennis Dresser as your defense lawyer, you should just represent yourself you would do a better job than he does. Get a different lawyer asap!!!!!!!!!

"Mr. Dressler, employed as a public defender, cannot accept private clients, yet he actively engages in AVVO, bringing his expertise to bear through his frequent answers and other contributions. Therefore, his participation is based, not on marketing or advertising, but on a genuine wish to serve the underserved community of persons who don't have or can't afford to have a lawyer at their beck and call. I endorse him."

"If you could hire him you would. 25 years of practicing law is what we call experienced. As a former District Attorney even for a short period he has a huge advantage over other criminal defense attorneys. "They know that he knows what they know". With 21 years of law practice in Spokane you can be assured that he knows the judges and DA's and local rules and customs. Experience really does matter. Too bad he's a government attorney and not accepting clients."
