Best DUI / DWI Attorneys in Washington

Lawyer Legion created this list of the top picks in 2024 for the best DUI defense attorneys in Washington. To rank Washington lawyers, including the best criminal defense and DUI lawyers, we used both objective and subjective criteria.

The top criminal defense and DUI defense attorneys in the U.S. were selected based on their career accomplishments, success in high-profile cases, professional involvement, community leadership, and board certifications.

This list represents some of the most highly accomplished drunk driving defense lawyers currently practicing in Washington. When reviewing this list, please be aware of each of the following:

  • Lawyers cannot pay to be included in this list.
  • Only lawyers who are active on Lawyer Legion were selected.
  • No online directory can accurately determine a statewide list of attorneys who are actually “the best” at practicing DUI defense law (but our list comes close).
