DUI Defense

Judges, teachers, athletes. Fathers, kids, and even grandparents. These are the "suspects" in DUI prosecutions. It is a crime that requires no intent, and which most people do not believe they are committing until the breath test result is done. Beyond the criminal charge, there are licensing consequences that arise out of administrative proceedings where the terms "reasonable doubt" and "presumption of innocence" are not to be found. No matter who you are, once you are facing a DUI allegation, aggressive and knowledgeable legal representation is required.

Jeff Kradel has defended hundreds of clients accused of DUI, in courts throughout Western Washington. What sets him apart from other DUI practitioners is the focus on his individual client. Unlike some firms in the DUI "business" Mr. Kradel is not running a mill, churning out cases in a never-ending pursuit of the monetary bottom line. His 24 hour phone line is answered by a human voice. The same voice that will argue, negotiate, and litigate to help his client achieve the outcome that their life or career requires.

HONEST and attentive to detail. He was worth every penny.

I hired Mr. Kradel after receiving a summons for a Felony level charge. My panic levels were off the charts, I was absolutely shocked and terrified and did not know how I should proceed. Mr. Kradel was very patient with me and calmly explained to my family and I exactly what was at stake - no scare tactics like a few other Criminal Lawyers I interviewed. He always believed my innocence. He was very good at outlining the best and worst case scenarios at every step in the process. He proactively communicated what his next steps would be and what our options were going forward. Mr. Kradel kept me consistently informed on a weekly basis; he was extremely responsive to SMS/email/phone to constantly stay in touch. I felt very connected and protected by my counsel, like someone out there was really looking out for me in this bureaucratic legal system where innocent people can fall through the cracks if a vindictive person pushes the system hard enough. 

I have been dealing with 3-4 Family Law attorneys for the past year or so, involving a messy divorce and a mental ex-husband who thought he could stir up more trouble for me using the Criminal System. This is the first fully competent lawyer I have come across - an understatement, Mr. Kradel is extremely intelligent, professional, HONEST and attentive to detail. He was worth every penny. 

Thank you, Mr. Kradel, for helping put this dark chapter behind me.
