Attorney Profile

Jonathan P. Dichter is the founder of Dichter Law Office. He represents people in Snohomish County, King County, Seattle and other areas of the state of Washington. Mr. Dichter focuses his practice on DUI defense, criminal defense and marijuana DUI defense, handling cases involving vehicular assault, suspended license, minor DUI, unlawful police stop, hit-and-run, driver's license restoration, reckless driving, minor in possession of alcohol, drug paraphernalia possession in a DUI stop and vehicle impoundment.

In 1999, Mr. Dichter graduated from The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Arts in political science. He then attended Seattle University School of Law and graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 2003. Since that time, Mr. Dichter has earned several certificates of completion upon finishing DUI programs from organizations such as the National College for DUI Defense, La Pier & Associates and Forensic Sobriety Assessment.

For over 10 years, Mr. Dichter has devoted himself to the defense of DUI-related charges. He knows that a DUI conviction comes with many consequences, including jail time, fines, loss of driving privileges and the installation of an ignition interlock. Mr. Dichter's legal successes include a not-guilty verdict for a man who admitted to consuming alcohol, refused to take a breath test and failed field sobriety tests; DUIs negotiated down to reckless driving; and a not-guilty verdict for a client with a previous DUI conviction who refused to take sobriety tests of any kind after a traffic stop.

When he is not working with clients, Mr. Dichter serves as a judge pro tempore for local courts. He is involved with several organizations, including Citizens for Judicial Excellence, the National College of DUI Defense and the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Mr. Dichter holds a superb Avvo rating of 10.0 in DUI.
