Jeffrey Kradel is an invaluable resource

"I'll never forget seeing Jeffrey Kradel show up for me after my first night in jail. It sounds like embellishment, but my goodness never have I been so glad to see a complete stranger. He was immediately able to ascertain the sensitivity of my case, to embrace the cascade of misfortune that had befallen me, and then to summarize my legal situation- a case of having "the book thrown at you" in an attempt to get something to stick. I was confused and scared, having inadvertently been thrust into an entirely unfamiliar and hostile world. Mr. Kradel led me through the intricacies of the City of Seattle's criminal system (navigating that circuitous system as a knowledgeable ally and cool, collected attorney) and ultimately reduced all of my charges. He then offered multiple years of support as I completed my community service, had my case dismissed and- finally, happily- had my record expunged. Mr. Kradel is extremely good at what he does; his passion for the law is obvious. He loves to ferret out answers to difficult questions and has just the resolve and tenacity to do so. And, he has a sense of humor and an ease to boot! I'd highly recommend him to anyone who is unfortunate enough to find themselves in need of a criminal attorney."
