Welcome To Leist Law Offices, PS

Interactions with the police are stressful. If it "only" leads to a ticket, the infraction can result in fines, increased insurance costs, loss of your driver's license or worse. Walking through that process on your own or with an inexperienced lawyer can be risky.

But what if you get arrested, put in jail or charged with a crime? The choices you make at that moment can impact your life, family, finances, reputation, job and even your freedom.

Scott Leist started as a Seattle Police officer and after almost seven years investigating and resolving crimes, he became a criminal prosecutor handling matters small (traffic matters, DUI and other misdemeanors) and large (sex offenses and violent crimes, including robbery and murder). Since 2009, Scott and his staff have helped thousands of clients in Washington protect their rights and lives during difficult criminal cases or traffic matters.

Washington Traffic Infraction and Criminal Defense

People with good jobs and nice families make mistakes. Kids who get good grades, parents who coach sports and volunteer their time and educated professionals can all find themselves in Court or in the hands of a police officer. If you or someone you care about is in that position, you want an experienced advocate like Scott on your side.

Traffic tickets and criminal charges can have tremendous costs and change your life. They can make future mistakes even more damaging. But you can fight back and you deserve someone that will fight for you.

Experience You Can Trust From A Former Seattle Police Officer And Prosecutor

No matter the accusation, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. Clients that work with Scott and his staff realize:

  • Scott Leist has a unique perspective and ability to evaluate a case due to his experience as a former Seattle Police officer and prosecutor. He can evaluate an investigation to see not only what was done, but what wasn't done.
  • Scott and his staff know the field and the players. Scott has appeared in dozens of courts in Washington and has dealt with hundreds of prosecutors all over the State as a police officer, prosecutor and now defense attorney
  • Scott understands police procedures, having been on the street. He has written tickets that he now defends. He has arrested people for charges that he now fights. There is no substitute for having "been there" when it comes to questioning a police officer or trooper in Court, whether about a traffic citation or a criminal charge.
