Criminal Defense Lawyers

Regardless of the criminal charge you are facing, or where you are charged, you need a criminal defense lawyer with experience in all courts. You need a trial lawyer with experience in state and federal courts. You also need an advocate who won’t judge you and will help you navigate the confusing criminal court system. The five attorneys at the Hester Law Group have over 100 years of combined experience defending criminal cases ranging from First Degree Capital Murder all the way to misdemeanor DUI and assault in the fourth degree, domestic violence.  

  • We are Tacoma trial lawyers
  • We are Federal trial lawyers.

We have successfully tried cases in both state and federal courts located in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Nevada, Montana, Idaho and Arizona.  Our representation has been documented in news articles, television shows and even in books about our clients and their cases.  We understand how to navigate high profile cases but we also understand that many of our clients require anonymity.  We will fight for what is best for you!

  • We are Pierce County defense attorneys

The attorneys at the Hester Law Group have obtained not guilty verdicts in almost every type of felony or misdemeanor criminal charge - in both state and federal courts. The many trials we have prepared for have included utilization of forensic experts to assist us in preparing defenses of diminished capacity, insanity, self-defense and suppression of BAC and/or blood evidence.  Whether you are facing a murder charge in Pierce County, a medicare fraud case in federal court or a DUI charge in Puyallup municipal court, you need a defense attorney who knows how to attack and suppress evidence.

  • We fight the Department of Licensing

Our practice also includes zealous representation of clients facing professional discipline, administrative hearings, school expulsions and department of licensing matters. 

  • We are also Tacoma appellate attorneys
