The best attorney a guy looking at time in prison could ever ask for!!!

He came in the court house and everyone acknowledged him right away. Me being a salesmen most of my life I knew right there how much foot work it took to get that kind respect and they all greeted him with a smile. Got me PR’rd on a bail jumping which I’ve never heard nor seen that ever happen. Ended up getting charges dismissed!! Man I couldn’t have done it withouty Gurl cause she’s the one introduced me to Jim and it was the best idea she spoken yet!! Lol

Put your life in the hands of James Oliver.

If you ever find yourself and your life counting on somebody, put your life in the hands of James Oliver. First and for most, I would like to thank James Oliver and staff for all that they have done for myself and my case. I couldn’t have asked for a better turn out with such satisfaction than I got with James Oliver Attorney at law, So I highly recommend if you ever find yourself at need of an attorney at law, James Oliver all the way.

HIGHLY recommended.

A very competent, professional and friendly lawyer. I hired Mr. Oliver recently when my existing lawyer had to withdraw from my case due to a conflict of interest. I was facing six months in custody due to a no-contact order violation. This case was pending and holding over my shoulders for over one year. The prosecuting attorney was not willing to negotiate at all, even though the alleged victim in the matter did not want to press charges. Throughout the whole process James was confident that he would be able to persuade the judge to allow electronic home monitoring as an alternative to jail time. He informed me that this was not a case that would be worth taking to trial, and recommended that I plea guilty and try to convince the judge to allow EHM as opposed to jail time. The time cam to plea guilty, and we appeared in front of a Pro-Tem judge. She reviewed the evidence, and made the decision to sentence me to three months jail time, and the remaining three months on EHM. At this point, I was ready to just get it over with, serve my time and move on with my life. James did not take the initial decision lightly, and informed the Pro-Tem judge that he would be filling a motion to re-consider with the presiding judge that usually oversees the cases in that court. Keep in mind throughout this entire process, he was very re-assuring and was very confident that he was going to make a strong argument in order to overturn the initial ruling. About a week after the initial ruling, he called to inform me that we would be going to the same courtroom again to appear before the presiding judge to plead our case. The judge ended up amending the initial findings, and sentenced me to three days in custody, and the remainder of the time to be served on EHM. Now I will be able to keep my job, continue therapy, and move on with my life. I can’t recommend this lawyer enough. Not only is he confident, friendly and professional, he is also extremely articulate when speaking on the record and presents his argument very well. I have dealt with many lawyers in the past, and I can honestly say he is the best I have ever worked with. He will not give up, fight hard for you, and help you to feel as though there is justice in this biased legal system. Legal troubles are a serious thing in this day and age. I have seen many innocent people railroaded by the legal system and lose everything they had ever worked for. If you have any problems, and are facing any legal troubles you do not want to just hire anybody. If you had a life threatening illness that needed to be treated, you would not just trust any doctor to conduct the surgery, so why leave your life in the hands of an in-competent lawyer? James is the best there is, do not hesitate to hire him! You will not be sorry!

Looking for Excellence, Look for James Oliver

I hired Mr. Oliver in 2008 where he handled my case and was amazing. He let me feel at ease with his confidence and knowledge of what he was doing. He is not only professional but very personable. He is very trust worthy and has outstanding ethics. Very hard to find in todays world let alone in an attorney. He truly cares about what he does and the people he serves.

Great lawyer at an affordable price

I decided to use this lawyer because he was recommended by a friend. I was concerned that his fees were a bit lower than what other lawyers were charging but he had lots of experience and we really liked him. I hired him to represent my son and he did a great job. He tried the case and my son was acquitted of all charges.

the light at the end of the tunnel

i was extremely happy with the knowledge and confidence Jim Oliver showed to me in my time of chaos. i was unsure about having another lawyer give me false hopes just because i haven’t been in this situation before. Jim Oliver not only gave me confidence he showed that great lawyers still exist. i couldn’t have been happier with the service of Jim Oliver. thank you again.

Outstanding services with outstanding results !!!!

I have gone to Mr. Oliver for many things, including a lot of referrals. He is the lawyer everyone wishes they knew. I have referred him to all of my family members, friends, co-workers, and even to people I don’t even know. He is a sincere person, and you feel that when you first contact him…… I have ONLY used Mr. Oliver for an attorney since 2007, and will only take the legal advise from him . He has always given me piece of mind, and was beat everything ! Thanks SO much !!!!

Goes the extra mile for the client

Mr. Oliver represented me recently in a traffic incident in which he prevailed. He had to argue against a city attorney and he even impressed the other side’s witness. He is determined, very knowledgeable, detailed and and thorough in both his work and in his explanations to me about the process and the law. He is also reassuring, which is a great comfort, and he is very easy to work with. I highly recommend Mr. Oliver.

Best Traffic Defense Attorney in Washington!

Ross continues to be my go to attorney for traffic defense. He consistantly wins in the different jurisdictions that I have been sited in. From speeding to parking infractions, it doesn’t matter what I bring him he wins! His track record is 100% in my book. I would send all my friends and family members to Ross for legal representation.

Unanimous not guilty verdict on a gun charge

Ross defended me on a gun charge involving a road rage incident. The prosecutor was non-negotiable on reducing or dismissing the charges lodged against me after defending myself during a road rage incident. Ross demolished the credibility of the “victim” and clearly presented my side of the story
resulting in a quick and unanimous not guilty jury verdict. I’d highly recommend Ross he was well prepared, knew the law and expertly navigated the legal system which I found to be biased against gun owners.

Motion To Lift NCO Granted Before Pre-trial!!!

Hire Natalie she is amazing!!!

I ran the gamut of attorneys before finding Natalie and honestly I was getting quite discouraged. I spoke to leagues of highly recommended and sought after attorneys who have clear reputations for winning cases like this, and I can tell you that I was more impressed with Natalie in the first two minutes of our conversation than with any of the other professionals, even the ones with over 21 years of experience. I have heard many people complain that once retained, attorneys become less communicative and less responsive. Natalie was the opposite, she was fully committed to doing everything she could to help and keep me updated on the case. I talked to her a number of times after normal business hours and even met with her on a Sunday to work on the case. Natalie is the kind of attorney you pray has time for your case. She is honest, ethical, compassionate, knowledgeable, supportive, connected, and encouraging. Her guidance was completely on par and she delivered on everything she said she was going to do. I cannot say enough good things about Natalie. She will always be at the top of my list of attorneys to call if needed.

Life Saver

With little to no introduction, Natalie came on board and did more for us than over the course of time that has been done within her control in less than 2 hrs. She was presented with a case and took it on as her own, with every intention to get us the help we needed! I am in the military and had less than five days before I had to be away for training, with a little faith that things would work out in our favor. With her persistence and drive she made miracles happen. She stood firm, went in with an offer and kept on her end of the deal. I couldn’t stop thanking her enough for what she did; we were so thankful for all her efforts. If ever in a jam ever again, in state or out of state, I will definitely be calling on Natalie to be my representation!

Amazing Job and Very Professional and THE BEST ATTORNEY EVER!

Very Professional, Intelligent Attorney. She was kind, compasionate and quick to solve my problem. She did a great job for me and even went above and beyond to investigate complicated computer evidence a terrible person lied to use against me. She was able to figure it all out and did some pro-bono work in my defence in a civil case regarding the same incident. Truly an excellent Attorney!

You will not find an attorney as good as Natalie Durflinger

I cannot overstate how effective and amazing Ms. Durflinger is as an attorney. Considering that I had a prior conviction stemming from a near-identical incident some five years earlier, I should never have gotten the deal that Natalie was able to work out for me with the prosecutor in my most recent case. Had it not been for her thorough research into my earlier case (which is something VERY FEW other attorneys would even bother doing) and her dedication to me as her client, I could easily have been given a relatively harsh sentence. Natalie was able to effectively have the case dismissed.

Thank you!

Natalie was recommended to me to help me deal with a harassing ex. Natalie was more than understanding and helpfull, she even offered to meet me at places closer to my home seeing how I’m am unable to travel far do to medical problems. She handled my case with no problem, and if it was for her I would probably still be getting harassed. I am very greatful for her help and would recommend her to anyone seeking legal ad.

Criminal trespass

Natalie defended me on a criminal trespass charge I had in November of 2009. She was informative and kept me informed of when I needed to appear in court and what I needed to do in order for the charge to be dismissed in a year. If there was no other crimes committed in that year. I have since had this charge dismissed. Thank you Natalie

Domestic Violence

My lawyer worked for me on two cases. One of them was a trespassing charge. The other was Domestic Violence. On both cases she kept me informed. I did everything i was ordered to do by the court. She went the extra mile for me to make sure they didn’t try to give me more classes than was ordered. She wasn’t trying to make a buck. I felt she was really trying to look out for the client.

Positive Result

Received first moving traffic violation ever in December, 2015. Firm retained in December, and ticket dismissed by Pierce County District Court in February 2016. Entire transaction with the firm was conducted by phone and online and required very little of my time. Firm’s fee was slightly below two other area law firms interviewed. Positive result overall.

An Amazing Law Office

This is an amazing law office. Mr Oliver took on my case for my car accident & Martha finished it off and made sure I was well greatly taken care of. They are a caring compassionate lawyer office. When life was hard after my car accident they reassured me It’d all work out just take care of myself & heal to my fullest. If your in need of help they are the place to go.

Not only did they tend to me but my teenage daughter as well!
After she got 4 tickets,  2 were speeding tickets & 2 other tickets as well, Martha got them all 4 dropped like a awesome attorney. I’d like to say thank you 2 all who took care of me & my daughter. I’d refer them any day of the week.
