"He is absolutely the best and you will be glad you hired him. I was."
Mark is a former prosecutor so he knows the ins and outs of how the system works and also knows many of the prosecutors personally, which is an enormous advantage. There were several times when I thought all was lost but Mark pulled a rabbit out of his hat and got unbelievable results for me. And through it all, he was kind, responsive, and calm, and a tremendous help. He's just a great person. I couldn't rate him more highly.
"He's good, I want to use THAT attorney"!
Mark presented my case in a concise, articulate manner and was respectful to the judge and prosecuting attorney. He was calm and presented himself with the utmost professionalism. I believe these factors had a direct influence on the judge's decision especially given the judge does not normally dismiss this type of case. I was extremely relieved to have my case dismissed. I can now put this behind me and move on with my life. In addition, the party sitting in the court room in front of my spouse was overheard saying "He's good, I want to use THAT attorney"!
Mark did for me what I tried (and failed) to do myself: get a dismissed record vacated by a judge who didn't even know you could do that.
He was in touch through the process, and his staff was pleasant and courteous and got the job done quickly after my initial contact.
My first contact with Mr. Blair was though an internet referral. I was impressed with his honesty over the phone. He gave us some solid advice on what to expect and what to do if certain things happened. After analyzing the case he was able to advise us that some things had been done improperly associated with the police stop and arrest and that he had two legitimate points he could argue to get the case dismissed. He also advised that there is no guarantee that the judge would see things the same way. At our request, Mark worked with the prosecuting attorney and ultimately we ended up settling on a lesser charge that involved acceptable consequences.
CALL MARK BLAIR! You won't be disappointed
Not knowing what to do, to hire an attorney, or not...I called Mark Blairs office not knowing what to expect. What I got was first class. Mark was on the road, so he asked me to email my case number...he called back within 30 minutes with a breakdown of what my options were. I was out of state, returning to WA to handle a Warrant due to driving with a suspended license, so my options were slim. Things didn't go as planned at the courthouse as to the scheduling of the court date, but Mark was able to go out of his way and visit the court/clerk and get me into court the next day where I was able to plea/pay my fine and go back home and never have to deal with this again. For those wondering, warrants come up in job application background checks, so if you have one, CALL MARK BLAIR! You won't be disappointed. I cannot thank him enough for his education, guidance, and knowledge of the WA court system and the skills to make this a seamless process.
WORLD CLASS LAWYER! AND OVER ALL GOOD GUY!
One of the first to respond after I received my DUI. Instantly felt assured in his abilities and personal character. And has fair market value prices!
He'll Earn Your Trust
I had a Negligent Driving 1st Degree conviction in 2006 that was reduced from a DUI. I was worried about having this on my Medical School application 7 years later as I thought it did not reflect my character today. I came across this website when trying to find out how to expunge or vacate such a conviction. Interestly enough it was attorney Blair who had the correct information on how to make a motion for such an order. Since he was in Seattle and my case was in Kitsap County I contacted several attorneys in the Kitsap area. The Attorneys were 1): hard to get in contact with and 2): possessed little to no information on how to approach an expungement/vacate of a DUI. Some wanted to charge me a fee just for them to study the statutes. How ridiculous is that? I decided to give Attorney Blair an email on a Sunday only to receive a phone call half an hour later. He was more than willing to explain the process to vacate the conviction and what it would mean for filling out applications. This was 4 months prior to when I actually hired Attorney Blair. Unfortunately the statute governing the vacating a negligent driving conviction resulting from a DUI changed this past summer to 10 years prior to incidence. This was explained to me by Mark before we went through with filing the motion and before I paid him a flat fee for all proceedings for the case. Mark let me know that it could still be vacated due to the fact it was changed from 7 to 10 years after my conviction but the legislature was against me in this. However, he informed me that he would make the motion again at the 10 year mark if it was denied FOR NO ADDED FEE. At this point I had no apprehensions about Attorney Blair and asked him to file the motion and appear at court for me. I live out of state, but everything was seemlessly easy. I can not stress enough that this is the epitome of good service - in any industry. Not to mention that Attorney Blair is exceptionally knowledgable in Legislature and is willing to fight for his clients! I did not expect to have the conviction vacated but low and behold Mark was able to obtain the Judge and Prosecutor's signature on the motion! I can now legally state that that I have never been convicted of a misdemeanor on any type of application, thanks to Attorney Mark Blair. Many may be skeptical of such reviews praising an Attorney but voice your concerns to Mark and ask questions. You will find that Attorney Blair is not only passionate about his work, but his experience and information he gives is honest. That's hard to find. Don't be naive, give Mark a call. He'll earn your trust.
Easy To Work With
Mark was easily accessible and easy to talk to. From the first conversation it was clear he has a very good knowledge of the law and how to get things done. He responded to all inquiries in a timely manner. He was able to get accomplished what he said he would. I was pleased the results and would use his services again, if necessary.

Correspondence was timely and always affective. Any in need of criminal defense , should have a conversation with Mr. Blair , and you will quickly see and feel , no further contacts , refferals , or phone calls need be made. The money and time that can be saved by streamlining future contact and collateral damage in the sentencing process will far and away be worth every penny of the fee structure.

Charges Dismissed - The judges and even the prosecutors know and liked Mark - Excellent Criminal Defense
Mark came to my rescue several years ago and managed to get my criminal charges dismissed and now most recently expunged and my court records sealed. He is not only an adroit attorney but he endeared himself with the local prosecutors and judges which I believe made him much more effective and successful in my case. I really appreciate his service.
MORE Than Helpful & Effective
Mark Blair did everything he said he was going to do in my case. He had to appear in 2 different courthouses, deal with multiple charges & was more than available whenever I had a quesiton/concern. He e-mailed back quickly & responded to texts/calls even faster. I would recommend Mark for any case within the greater Seattle-area.
Review of criminal defense services
I hired Mark as my defense attorney to handle my reckless driving and reckless endangerment charges. The entire process took about 4 months, from the pre-sentensing to the pre-trial, where ultimately the case was resolved.

DV Case Dec 2010
Mark did an excellent job of getting me through this problem and kept me informed of what to expect, what could or should be done, and continuously kept in mind my concerns and needs, while ensuring I didn't violate any court requirements. He proactively worked with the Prosecutor and supplied me with suggestions based on his many years of working within the legal system. If I was unfortunate enough to need his services again, I would not hesitate to use him or recommend him to others.
Professional, Knowledgeable & Confident
Before speaking with Mark Blair I felt that my legal situation was spinning out of control. I felt defeated and helpless, even more so after speaking with two other law firms in the Seattle area prior to contacting Mark. After speaking with Mark I felt confident that, though this situation will not disappear, it will certainly get better with time. Mark clearly listened and gave me answers and advise based on law, not opinion. I am very greatful to Mark for taking the time to listen and truly take interest in my situation. I highly recommend the law firm of Blair & Kim, PLLC.
