This Is An Amazing Lawyer
When I first got into "my mess", I was pretty scared, and I shopped around looking for a good lawyer. Some of the ones I came across didn't seem to care, or were mainly concerned about the money. Adam however made me feel very comfortable about my situation. It seemed like he genuinely cared about what I had to say, and the severity of my case. He paid great attention to detail and not only did he speed the whole process up (getting the situation resolved quicker than expected), but he got my charges dismissed. I can now breath easy. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

Professional, Friendly and Efficient
Since I was living in Phoenix and wasn't aware of any attorney's in the Seattle area, I searched on Craigslist for an attorney that could help me with my case in Washington. I contacted Adam Yanasak's office through his Craigslist listing. Adam and his staff were extremely friendly from the first phone call on and very quick to help me with my situation. Although it was a unique case to Adam, he looked into it immediately and was very efficient in working with the courts and prosecutor on my behalf to work out a positive resolution. You can't ask for much more than quick, friendly and attentive service and that's what I experienced with Adam Yanasak and his paralegals.

Very Professional Attorney
Mr Yanasak was great. He was very knowledgeable about the real functioning of the court system, and helped our son get the best result from it. He was easy to work with, conscientious, and punctual.

excellent lawyer
Adam is an amazing lawyer. I contacted him after an arrest for assault 4. I was able to meet with him the next day to discuss my case. Throughout my court process he was consistently there if I had any questions and was able to return any phone calls within a matter of hours. One court date I had I did not need an attorney present but informed him I was uncomfortable going to it alone. He was unable to make it but because of that sent an associate of his to put me at ease. He worked with the prosocuter and settled my case with community service. I have a past crimminal record and was anticipating more jail time so I was extremely happy he worked so hard to keep me out of jail. If you find yourself in a difficult crimminal case adam yanasak in my opinion is the way to go.

I did get have jail time.
Adam really helped me out of a tight place. He was willing to meet with me right away, which was one of the main reasons I choose him. He was very professional, and in the court I felt super confident. I wold recommend him, he was easy to work with, and I got my case dismissed.

I got pulled over
I got pulled over for a DUI. Firstly I was embarrassed and then I was scared. Adam helped me on both accounts. He did not judge me and he helped explained the system so I was no longer scared and I realized I actually had options.
