What makes Leyba Defense different than the rest

Unlike most other law firms in Seattle, Leyba Defense PLLC has built its reputation on its successes, not the number of cases we take.  At no time do we take more than 20 clients.  Why is that important?  We’re a boutique DUI firm that runs a small practice.  That means we don’t have high fixed costs and overhead.  We provide more personal attention and spend more time preparing for each individual we defend than any other law firm out there.  It’s simple math.  Less clients equal more time spent on each case which means better results!

Our Seattle DUI Attorneys are available literally 24/7 to each of our clients, and make it a priority to return every phone call or email within an hour of receipt.  If you have a question on a Sunday evening at 9 o’clock give us a call, we will be available to answer your question.  If you don’t want to be treated like another number or dollar sign, Leyba Defense is the right firm for you.  We promise you won’t regret it.
