Kevin Trombold is a super smart, savvy and trustworthy person, and someone who truly cares about his clients. His years of experience within the public defender's office provided him insight into how the complex world of criminal law really works on a day to day basis. Talking to him makes you realize that Kevin hates injustice, he is driven by that and it's part of what makes him such a great lawyer. When we first met, I had a ton of questions and was very distressed. Kevin patiently answered all my questions, laid out the law in my case and gave me an honest take on my likely outcome. His calm demeanor and frequent conversations helped me understand what was happening with my case every step of the process. Although the odds were against it, he successfully negotiated my original charge down to a lesser misdemeanor, for which I will be forever grateful. In addition to being a talented lawyer, Kevin is a genuinely nice and likeable guy. The clerks like him, the judges respect him and everywhere you go within the courthouse, he knows almost every person by name -- even some of the guards. If you've ever watched a legal show, you know it really helps to have someone who people like in your corner. Since my case, I have contacted him on other legal issues, including getting a reference and legal insight for my brother-in-law when he had a run-in with the law. As always, Kevin was patient, super helpful and offered great advice. Choosing a lawyer is a big decision. I definitely recommend Kevin Trombold. He's someone you can trust and will get the best results possible in your case.

As a criminal defense attorney in the same office as Kevin, I have worked side by side with him for over a decade. He is a hard working, creative and dedicated advocate for his clients. I recommend Kevin without hesitation if you need help with a criminal case. As you figure out what is the best course for your case I recommend giving him a call to see if he is a good fit for you.

Kevin was extremely professional and clearly knew what he was doing. I had Kevin take my case after the last lawyer I had was disbarred and the difference between the two was staggering. I am very happy I switched to Kevin and my case ended up getting resolved exactly how I wanted it. Better than I was anticipating, even.

Mr. Voelker came to my aid following an unwarranted traffic stop and subsequent arrest. He advised me during the incident as well as immediately following my release. At the hearing all charges were dropped, the case was dismissed and a formal apology was made by the DA's office. Mr. Voelker handled this case with tremendous calm and attention to detail; I had hardly stepped foot into the court room for the hearing before the prosecuting attorney shook my hand and formally dropped the charges.

It turns out that even though I live in Seattle, because my case is in Spokane, I need to hire a lawyer in that area. Despite this, Christine answered all of my questions even though she knew that I wasn't going to be able to hire her. She also gave me advice on how to find a good attorney in Spokane. At the end of our call I felt much better about my regretful DUI ticket.

Beckwith Law is a lifesaver! I had a contestable moving violation in Eastern Washington that was going to be very difficult to manage from Seattle. Cristine and her professional staff managed the whole process for me from start to finish. I saved hundreds of dollars in the process.

I am both a licensed stockbroker and real estate agent. I did something incredibly dumb that put both of these licenses, not to mention my livelihood and reputation, at risk. Even though I’m not providing my full name here, I still do not want to go into much detail about the incident, as it is incredibly embarrassing. I will say that I was accused of exposing myself but when I did it, it was never my intent for others to see me or be offended by my actions. Unfortunately, the District Attorney did not see it this way. Stuck with the possibility of having to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life, I began searching for an attorney. I consulted with four different lawyers. Court stood out head and shoulders about the rest. His demeanor and caring attitude immediately put me at ease. He immediately formed and shared an excellent strategy with me to convince the prosecutor that all the “elements” of the crime were not present. He also advised me to collect a number of letters from people vouching for my good character; it was difficult to obtain these, as I didn’t want to reveal why I needed the letters, but I am glad I did it because they were very helpful. In the end, Court was fully prepared to go to trial, but literally a few days before we were set to pick a jury Court called me with the best news I’ve ever heard. He had another meeting with the prosecutor and her supervisor and they agreed to dismiss the primary charge in exchange to a plea to a very minor charge that had no effect on my livelihood or record. In exchange, I had to perform a lot of community service. I ended up doing my community service at a local food bank, and the funny thing is I still volunteer there to this day. I cannot say enough good things about Court. He is an outstanding attorney and I owe him everything.

Mr. & Mrs. Will did an outstanding job for my son. I am a police officer so I am posting this anonymously for that reason. My son made an incredibly bad choice one night and found himself facing three felony battery charges (along with a few of his friends). The Will’s were referred to me by another officer that they had helped out of a jam a couple of years ago. I don’t condone my son’s actions that night, but the prosecutor’s office was trying to throw the book at him. To be honest I probably would not have given it a second thought if charges were not against my son (I’m not proud of that, but I had become somewhat jaded as an officer). Luckily, the Will’s had my son’s best interest in mind and discovered through their investigation that he was not nearly as culpable as his friends were. After several negotiations with the State, in the end my son was able to walk away with not much more than a slap on the wrist (and a hard lesson learned). His friends didn’t fare as well. Thank you to Will & Will for everything; you truly gave my son a second chance at life.

I did quite a bit of research online for a good attorney/firm and ended up looking on Thumbtack because I found a great plumber on here before! Got 5 replies and I ended up reaching out to two of them. First spoke with another attorney and then with Court. Night and day difference! I could tell just by the free consult that I was in good hands. I hired Court (and his wife Michelle) and was always able to get all my questions answered throughout the whole process. Even more importantly, they got me an excellent outcome on my case. I'm not comfortable getting in to details on an online review like this, but I'll just say I'm extremely happy and I hope I'll never need a criminal defense attorney again but if I do, I know who to call!

The difference between the 5 attorneys I talked to vs. Mr. White was that he actually made me feel comfortable and was in good hands prior to me hiring him. With the other 5 i spoke to they all wanted me to come in and meet with them probably trying to pressure me into hiring them. Not only was Mr. White the cheapest of the 5 but he seemed to be the most professional. Over phone he took me through the process of what will take place and how I had a fighting chance. Everyone else was all about their money and with their prices so high I believe it. I would recommend James White in a heartbeat if im ever in trouble not even a second thought of hiring anyone else.

About

Jim Schoenberger's law practice has included civil litigation, and government and criminal defense since 1981. As a former senior attorney for a federal agency who was prosecuted financial frauds, Mr. Schoenberger discovered that sometimes good people do bad things. The Law Office of James A. Schoenberger is now devoted exclusively to criminal representation and immigration matters. We serve those charged with crimes in King, Kitsap, Thurston and Pierce counties. Our prices are reasonable, and we utilize a fee agreement which is fair to defendants. Unlike the usual flat-fee arrangement, we prefer to have a retainer amount with an agreed minimal fee, so that an early resolution of a case ends up in refund of unearned fees. Experience counts. Since opening his Washington law office in 2003, Mr. Schoenberger has tried over 100 DUI and felony cases to juries, gaining the respect of prosecutors and judges.

This occurred at age 14 in 1992, King County. Robbery2 and Assault2. It was pretty bogus and inflated but that's neither here nor there, what's done is done. There have been zero arrests anywhere since that 1 incident in 1992. I'm not sure what is needed to get a CPL in Washington but I tried in 2001/2 and was denied based on my juvenile record.
