Why Choose David O Defense Over Other Law Firms?

Why Choose David O Defense Over Other Law Firms?

Here at David O Defense we believe our criminal defense attorneys are easily ranked among the industries best.  We believe we provide exceptional client care and work harder than the vast majority to obtain optimal case results.  In fact we believe this so strongly that we encourage potential clients to meet and interview with other attorneys knowing that after those interviews clients will recognize our value and return to David O Defense for representation.

Why choose the lawyers at David O Defense?

1)  Exceptional client care.  Our attorneys are available to our clients, every day of the week.  Often our criminal defense attorneys will meet with clients on the weekends or during after business hours, we work to accommodate our clients busy schedules.  Additionally the attorneys will take phone calls 24/7, and if we are unable to answer we will reply to messages within hours.  Our clients are our priority and we want to be able to answer all questions and concerns as well as keep them informed on the process of their case.

2) Empathy and compassion.  Our attorneys understand that being charged with any crime can evoke an array of emotions from fear to anger.  Our defense attorneys are empathetic to their client’s situation and understanding.  Under no circumstance will our clients ever receive judgement or criticism from our attorneys.  Here at David O Defense we are on our client’s side!

3) 100% dedication to criminal defense law.  The only law practiced at David O Defense is criminal defense law.  We fight cases such as DUI, domestic violence, sex crimes, driving on a suspended license, theft, and more.  We focus only on criminal law so we maximize our talents in the criminal defense arena and continue to preserve our strong relationships with prosecutors and judges that handle criminal defense cases.  An example we like to provide to potential clients is; if you needed heart surgery you would seek a cardiac doctor for the best outcome, not a general practitioner medical doctor who may know a little about the heart but not nearly as educated and as experienced as the cardiac surgeon.  The same stands true for criminal defense, an individual charged with DUI would be in better hands with an attorney that practices exclusively criminal defense, they are more experienced and knowledgeable resulting in a better outcome.

4) Honest and hardworking.  Often times other lawyers will tell prospective clients what they want to hear just so they will be hired and make some money.  However, what a client wants to hear may not be realistic.  No attorney should ever guarantee case results during an initial legal consultation because they haven’t had an opportunity to look into the case.  Our DUI and criminal defense lawyers at David O Defense are completely honest and upfront with clients, they don’t lie to make a quick buck.  Being honest and upfront means our clients will be properly informed and educated about their case so they are empowered to make clear decisions pertaining to their case.  In addition to being honest, our lawyers are very hard-working, they are not “dump truck” attorneys that simply collect legal fees, do very little work, and then make their clients plead guilty.  We work very hard negotiating cases, looking for loop holes, and interviewing witnesses.  Our defense attorneys will always go the extra mile to achieve great results for our clients.

5) Reasonable flat legal fees.  Here at David O Defense we charge reasonable flat legal fees which will be fully stated in a contract during the initial legal consultation.  There are never any additional hidden charges, again our attorneys are honest and upfront.  We also offer flexible payment plans, a financial feature that many other attorneys do not offer.


If you would like to schedule a no obligation, no pressure, free legal consultation with David O Defense, please call 206-459-6392, we will be happy to speak with you and answer all your legal questions.

Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Cleared from Criminal Allegations

Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Cleared from Criminal Allegations

Great news Seattle Seahawks fans, Marshawn Lynch is no longer a suspect in an alleged assault and personal property damage incident, he has been officially cleared!  The Bellevue Police Department released a statement last night clearing Lynch from the assault and property damage allegations, “The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in last weekend’s property damage and assault in any way.”

The assault and property damage allegedly occurred this past Sunday, August 10th around 2:30 am.  The very next day, Bellevue Police announced Lynch as a possible suspect in the criminal activity, even before they had a chance to interview Lynch himself.  The Hawks confident in their star running back’s innocence, quickly responded by saying, “While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus.”

And indeed the allegations were “bogus.”  Although Beastmode is cleared of any wrongdoing the Bellevue Police Department issued this statement as well, “This case remains an open and active investigation.  We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.”

With allegations behind him, Lynch, 28, can now focus on what he does best, “Beast Mode.” Coach Pete Carroll hinted that Marshawn may be playing in the next preseason game against the Chargers. “You may see a little bit of Marshawn in this game,” said Carroll during a KJR-AM interview.

Hope Solo’s Apology Post her Domestic Violence Arrest

Hope Solo’s Apology Post her Domestic Violence Arrest

Yesterday on June 27th, Seattle Reign Soccer player Hope Solo, released apology statements concerning her recent arrest for assaulting her sister and her nephew (her sister’s son).  Her Facebook and Twitter accounts read, “I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family,” she said. “Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different.”

The Seattle Soccer goal keeper was arrested and charged with two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence last weekend when she allegedly hit both her  nephew and sister during a heated argument at a family function.  According to reports, Solo had been drinking when she arrived at her sister’s house located in Kirkland Washington.  Apparently, Solo became very angry when she was talking with her 17-year-old nephew about his acting career and aspirations, she lashed out and started criticizing him by calling him fat and crazy.  Solo’s sister tried to dissipate the situation and that’s when Auntie Hope punched her sister in the face.  Next the teenage boy came to his mother’s aid and grabbed a broom and smashed it over Solo’s head.  The altercation ended with the nephew pointing his BB gun at his Aunt Solo telling her to get out of their house.

“Hope is not guilty of a crime,” stated her criminal defense attorney.  “In fact, our investigation reveals that Hope was assaulted and injured during this unfortunate incident. We look forward to the opportunity to present the true facts in court and to having this matter behind Hope very soon,” shared her defense attorney in an email he had written to The Associated Press.

The 32-year-old star soccer player pled not guilty to the domestic violence charges on Monday in the Kirkland Municipal Court, as she feels she was the victim in this altercation.

The two-time Olympic gold soccer gold medalist is scheduled for her second court appearance on August 11, 2014.

Here is Hope Solo’s Facebook apology in its entirety, “I would like to apologize to my fans, teammates, coaches, marketing partners and the entire US Soccer and Seattle Reign FC communities for my involvement in a highly unfortunate incident this past weekend. I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct. I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed.
I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family. Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different.
I also would like to thank everyone who has reached out with messages of support and encouragement. I truly appreciate your loyalty, concern and well wishes.
Due to pending legal issues, I cannot comment further at this time. However, I am confident in the legal process and believe my name will be cleared.
I look forward to getting back on the field where I belong with both Seattle Reign FC and the US Women’s National Team.”
