"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."
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.
