Ari Goldstein

Attorney At Law

After obtaining degrees in comparative history and political science from the University of Washington, I pursued my Juris Doctor from the Seattle University School of Law. Having a strong educational and cultural background has helped me in forming new ideas and creating unique legal strategies for my clients. My practice solely focuses on criminal defense and helping individuals protect their constitutional rights so they can get a fair shake in the justice system. Everyone enjoys doing things they are good at, and I love being in the courtroom. My aggressive approach, armed with honesty and creative strategies, makes me a formidable opponent for the prosecution — and I'm proud to use those skills to benefit my clients.


A Felony Conviction Can Do Serious Damage

Since the official beginning of the "war on drugs" and the "tough on crime" sentencing structure, the conviction rate has increased dramatically nationwide. With law enforcement and the justice system teaming up against citizens, it's crucial that you have a defense attorney who knows how to navigate the system and mitigate the damage from a felony conviction.

If a legal issue has brought you to my office, I already know it's not the best day for you. I will let you tell me your side of the story, taking note of all the vital details along the way, so I can determine your next steps.

From there, I'll help you understand what you're up against. Felony charges can be anything from fraud and racketeering, to drug crimes and murder. If convicted, you could lose a number of personal rights and freedoms, including your parental rights. Though you still have the right to fair housing and employment, your application could be denied based on your criminal record.

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, reach out to me immediately. We can sit down for a free consultation and discuss your options. No matter what you've been through, I'll fight for you in and out of court.
