Washington Felony Defense Lawyer
At the Law Office of Mark D. Mestel, I have more than 32 years of experience in criminal defense. I built my reputation as a trial attorney, willing to take even the most difficult and high-profile cases. While I may consider a plea bargain if it's clearly in your best interests, my preference is always to fight for your rights in court. In over three decades in practice, I have personally handled thousands of criminal cases and tried more than five hundred jury trials.

Aggressive Defense of State and Federal Crimes
I have focused my practice exclusively on criminal defense since 1977, handling a broad range of state and federal criminal cases, including:
- Homicide or murder cases: I am known for successfully handling high profile homicide cases. Because of my reputation for strong and aggressive defense, many of my homicide cases come to me as referrals from other lawyers.
- White collar crimes: such as fraud, embezzlement, identity theft and money laundering
- Drug charges: from possession and trafficking to manufacturing and conspiracies — I handle cases involving all types of drugs, from marijuana and cocaine to heroin and prescription drugs.
- Sex offenses: including sexual assaults against adults and minors, child pornography and use of the Internet to solicit minors
When you hire me to defend you on criminal charges, I will exhaustively investigate the facts, evidence and circumstances of your case, looking for the most effective defense strategies. I will carefully review all the evidence to determine whether police had probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and whether you were properly advised of your rights before making any statements. I will also confirm that any evidence against you was property obtained.
