With a practice devoted to criminal defense, Pewitt represents clients in misdemeanor and felony cases involving driving offenses, drug charges, DUI, fraud, theft, assault, domestic violence and more. She also assists clients with expungement of criminal records, department of licensing hearings, restoration of constitutional rights and any infractions associated with a criminal charge.  Ms. Pewitt has a reputation as a strong courtroom presence who vigorously advocates for her clients using her significant courtroom experience and legal training.  While Pewitt primarily represents clients in Western Washington, she welcomes inquiries from accused persons seeking representation anywhere in Washington State.

Before pursuing a career in the law, she worked in business, international marketing and cross-cultural training.  Ms. Pewitt graduated Magna Cum Laude from Seattle University School of Law, where she served on the national moot court team.

While in law school, she served as an extern for a superior court judge, worked as a student public defense attorney and served as a law clerk in the Washington State Office of the Attorney General’s sexually violent predator unit.

She has been a featured speaker for the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL) and her winning strategy for an Ambien sleep-driving trial is published in Washington Criminal Defense Magazine. Pewitt currently serves as the Co-Chair of the WACDL Legislative Committee, a group formed to monitor proposed legislation that could impact the interests of the defense bar and accused persons.

Ms. Pewitt is a member of the Washington State Bar Association, King County Bar Association, Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Washington Defender Association, and National College for DUI Defense.
