Best referral EVER.
I was referred to Robert by another attorney when looking to see if he could help with a situation I found myself in. I made a terrible mistake and a bad choice during a difficult time in my life, and the result left me feeling at the end. In my initial meeting with Robert, he not only talked me off the ledge, but he got me started down the path of resolving the issue. Despite the situation, and the absolutely terrible set of circumstances I presented him, Robert was able to compartmentalize and put a plan of action into place. Robert had a real belief in me as an individual and treated me as such. He was kind, thoughtful, intelligent, and understanding. I left the initial meeting with a feeling of some hope and not quite so bad about myself personally. Robert then worked tirelessly to get the best possible result imaginable and made it happen. I had to put my work in at his instruction, and everything asked of me was both beneficial personally and toward the resulting outcome. Great service like this does not come without a price tag, but it was the best money I have spent in a long while. Part of making a mistake is owning up to it, and it does come with a cost. The resulting conclusion of my case has allowed me to move forward with my life in a positive manner, and I owe that to Robert. I have never endorsed a professional in my life before this point, but having been referred to Robert, I feel it is important that I pass on my experience so that others may share in the same good fortune. Consider paying it forward. If at any point you find yourself in the need of a professional in Robert’s line of work, I cannot urge you enough to contact him and at least have the initial meeting. I am confident you will find, like I needed, a caring individual who is exceptional at what he does. Thank you.
What a relief!
Unfortunately after a company holiday party a few years ago, I found myself needing representation. I was scared, mad at myself for being in this situation, and confused about all the ramifications I was facing. Luckily I had a friend who personally knows Robert, and he got me in touch with him. When I called Rob, it was after normal business hours and he talked with me for almost an hour explaining what I was facing and how to proceed, whether I hired him or not. That was refreshing as my opinion of lawyers was that they won’t help until you start paying. That was not the case with Rob Ault. I hired Rob to represent me, and it was the best decision I believe I could have made. He actually won the initial DOL hearing for me (which is rare I understand now), meaning I didn’t lose my license for 90 days like most charged people do. Fast forward a few months, after a few court appearances and motions, I agreed to a lesser charge and began my restitution. No jail time (other than arrest night) and I never lost my license which was huge for my line of work. The best part of working with Rob was his understanding of what I was going through and willingness to “talk me off the ledge” anytime I was getting anxious. I literally consulted with Rob a dozen+ times throughout the process, sometimes just to have him reassure me that this would pass and it’s not the end of the world. I will forever be in his debt for helping me cope with a bad decision that was my own fault. His impressive legal and procedural knowledge aside (and trust me he knows his stuff), the personal attention and empathy I received made all the difference. I won’t find myself in this situation again, but if you do, I can’t recommend Robert Ault enough. Great attorney, better person.
Hire Rob. Best decision you can make.
Rob treated my case as if I was his only client. I could tell he put a lot of thought into everything he did to support me. I made a huge mistake, and my job and my livelihood were in jeopardy. Rob took a lot of the burden off my shoulders, and he helped me every step of the way. Unfortunately, this was my second time going through this. My first attorney was good, but Rob was GREAT. We ended up getting a better outcome than I could have ever hoped for, and I have Rob to thank for this. Outside of the courtroom Rob was very concerned with getting me the mental health and substance abuse treatment I needed. He showed real concern for my personal well-being. I can’t recommend him enough. If you are facing a DUI I truly can’t imagine there is a better option out there than Rob Ault.
Rob Ault has been a blessing in my life!
I will continue to and have already recommende Rob Ault, as an attorney to others in my situation. I sincerely believe the outcome we received would not be what it was, had he not been my attorney and on my side. He helped my life and my situation in dealing with a DUI in so many ways. My fines are minimal as are the consequences of the mistake that I made, not to say that I don’t need to take responsibility for my actions. Rob has been very easy to work with, is well versed in this area of the law, and accomplished quite a bit on my behalf… moreso than I thought possible. I am above and beyond satisfied with Rob’s ability to perform his job as one’s attorney!
I have worked with a number of attorneys throughout my lifetime in a number of different capacities. And I definitely consider Rob to be of the highest caliber. He went out of his way to make me feel like I wasn’t just another client and that I was in good hands every step of the way. I was extremely pleased and relieved with the outcome. And I truly feel he did everything in his power to get me there.
Rob did a great job with a bad situation. He has cultivated relationships with judges and prosecutors for them to listen to what he’s saying about his client’s situation. All DUIs are not the same. Mine was serious, and he did a great job minimizing the damage to me.
Aggressive and detailed attorney.
I have used Rob & recommended him to other people. Rob is one of the most dedicated & thorough professionals I have encountered. Rob was able to identify & present to the court how my constitutional rights were violated under state law & federal law. This allowed the circumstantial evidence & my encounter with police to not be allowed to be used by the prosecutor. Rob was very skilled & well prepared on how he presented my case to the court. He is an excellent attorney & dedicated to his trade.
Good experience, happy with the case outcome, highly recommended.
Rob is definitely who you want on your side in a case. He is very thorough, honest, and quick to respond with any questions or concerns 24/7. He is definitely an expert in his areas of practice and it shows. He is also a very personable guy who helped me feel a lot less stressed out about my legal situation. I’m happy with the outcome of the case I hired him to represent me in.
I was referred to Rob Ault by a friend who actually was represented by his partner and associate. After meeting Rob for the first time and explaining the incident I was involved in, I was certain he was the right person to hire. Rob is very knowledgeable in his field of law and was able to convey to me how we would navigate through the process. He answered all my questions and concerns and was always reachable during the process. In my particular case, Rob was able to first win a critical judgment hearing. Although this was a major first step, Rob continued the hard work and was able in the end to have the case dismissed. I learned a lot during my case and there were times that were more difficult than others, but without Rob Ault’s representation and knowledge, my case may have gone a different direction altogether. He always reassured me that we will get through it, and we did. I would highly recommend Rob Ault to anyone in need of a straight forward, knowledgeable, hard-working attorney.
The best around!
Hired Robert Ault to represent me on my MANY DUIs. Mr. Ault is, by far, the best attorney I have ever hired. Mr. Ault was always in contact with me and never left me uniformed on my case or any questions I had. Robert Ault reviewed every bit and piece of the evidence, and with his knowledge of the law, got my DUI reduced to a much lesser charge. I was looking at a minimum of a year in jail and losing my license for 8 years. My outcome was just a day in jail and STILL driving. Like I said, “I had many DUI’s”. In short, Robert Ault did an outstanding job and this has given me a new beginning… I highly recommend Mr. Robert Ault for any problem that seems a hopeless outcome. I am proof of just that. Feel free to contact me for any questions, or better yet, consult with Robert Ault in person.
Upfront and a pleasure to work with.
I was referred to the Veitch law firm by a friend. I believe Robert Ault has taken over the Western Washington operations. Dealing with the county and district court is a nightmare. It’s the most inefficient process. Robert was always upfront about the “dance” that had to occur in going to court. This was very helpful. I appreciated that Robert works very well not only with other attorneys but also with the court staff. He seems to be well-respected and well-known among them. He has a good charm with him that I think can only help your case. There was pretty incriminating footage of my arrest from the dashcam of the car. He was honest and upfront about the situation I was in. We actually had a good shot at dismissal a couple of times based on the judge’s ruling. He is socially intelligent and knows how to work with the various judges and their personality styles. I ended up with Reckless Driving on my record for a 1st offense. Given the climate in the court and the politics occurring in the region, I felt this was a fair result. If Robert has an opportunity to go toe-to-toe with the prosecutor, this is really where Robert shines. He knows the law, he knows how to talk with people, he knows how to probe questions, and he knows what to do and when to do it. He is a busy guy as most attorneys are. That can be challenging, but you shouldn’t worry about working with Robert. He and the rest of his staff are great.
I could never say enough good things about this man. He is very very good at his job. He is kind, respectful, diligent, a man of integrity, knowledgeable, experienced and highly respected among those that matter within our legal system. He is worth ever penny. I very rarely recommend professionals let alone write reviews. If you, a friend, a family member have gotten in a bind this is the attorney you want behind you.
Lowest Point in life
I came to Mr. Robert at my lowest point in life and not only did he save it but he also worked with me and answered my phone calls day and night to get the conclusion I needed. If you are caught up in serious trouble, you are in the right place here. Place your faith in the man and you will not regret it!!!!!
Best Legal Services in the State
Amazing results, Rob gives you and your family the best legal services in the state. very professional and caring. down to earth, he’s got a great heart, he is an amazing person that will do it all for you and with you. extremely professional and experienced. 100% satisfaction with his services.
Highly Skilled Defense lawer
I had a false charge brought against me and Mr. Ault had it dropped quickly and without prejudice. The accuser had a witness and partial video evidence all in their favor while I had no witnesses and no video evidence of the incident to validate my innocence. I thought my life was over but this wasn’t a problem for Mr. Ault as he was assertive and direct with getting the charge dropped without prejudice quickly so I was able to get back to school and work as soon as possible. He is a highly skilled defense lawyer and although he specializes in D.U.I’s he is not limited to that specific practice and he is not afraid to achieve the best outcome possible for his clients no matter the circumstance you may be facing.
Rob’s the Best
Honestly, if you’re looking for a lawyer who will work his rear off to get you a lesser charge, then Rob is your man. I had a prior DUI conviction that was over 10 years, but the DA was still trying to convince the judge that I was a repeat offender. Since Rob is well known and well-respected in the industry, he was able to leverage his relationship/negotiate with the head of DA to get me a reduced sentence from a DUI to negligent driving. I could not be happier with the outcome. If you’re facing similar charges, I highly recommend you give Rob a call.
Fights the fight & Walks the walk
I couldn’t have asked for a better person/attorney on my side. Not only did he help with any and all questions (and I had many) but he answered them with ease and promptly. I would recommend Rob to anyone and everyone who needed such help. Thank you thank you thank you for your help and guidance through this case. You fight the fight and walk the walk.
You will want Rob Ault as your attorney
My only regret is not contacting Rob right after my arrest. This was my first arrest and I had no idea what to do or to expect. Definitely contact Rob right away before the 20 days that the Department of Licensing will temporarily suspend your driver’s license as a result of a DUI, DWI or reckless driving. Rob is easy to work with. He is specialized in the defense of those accused of criminal charges and when he was working on his law degree, he worked at the King County Prosecutor’s Office for Victim Assistance. Having experience and legal contacts on both sides of the legal system is a definite advantage in representing clients. It was obvious that Rob was respected by the prosecuting attorneys and judges that were involved in my case. Rob knows the system so take his advice to take care of what needs to be done as quickly and promptly as possible. Rob was upfront with me from the beginning, not making any promises on the outcome, but he came through with a commendable result. In my opinion, a DUI or DWI is going to be expensive with or without an attorney. My legal expenses were offset with having a reduced charge with a reduced fine, that was also reduced almost in half as well as not having to spend extra time in jail, got my driver’s license suspension reduced from 90 to 30 days, and not having to put a blow and go on my truck.
Ideal Outcome thanks to Rob
I did everything Rob wanted me to do and wound up with an absolutely ideal outcome for my circumstances. Pinched for DUI on Mercer Island (watch out there, seriously) while visiting from out of state and I refused breathalyzer. Rob worked extra to accommodate my travel burden and to ensure my case wouldn’t have unforeseen consequences across state lines. Communication was always clear and I felt that my case was considered thoroughly by him. I went from facing extreme DUI charges with possible jail time plus 1 year driver’s license suspension, high risk insurance and 4 figures in fines down to negligent driving 1st degree, with NO license suspension, NO jail time, NO high risk insurance, <$400 in fines, just 32 hours community service which he got so I could serve in my home state. Very effective and professional. I would strongly recommend anyone charged with DUI in Seattle area or Eastside to give him a call. His receptionist Karen is also very reliable.
I was very fortunate to get a referral to consult with Rob via my sister’s co-worker. I honestly had no idea where to look for a lawyer who could negotiate a good resolution for a second DUI with a refusal. Rob was aware of my financial restrictions and busy family life caring for four children. He is very direct and upfront about everything and basically just took control of my case while I sat back and let him do his thing. I could tell he was respected in the courtroom and I felt confident in his hands. In the end I got an excellent resolution of a reckless driving conviction. I am very grateful to have found such an excellent lawyer.
A man of character
I had the good fortune to have Mr. Ault represent me in my very difficult DUI case. I was lucky enough to hire Robert who ended up being a man of his word and actually honorable in a profession that isn’t know for having lots of honorable people. Robert worked tirelessly for me on what appeared to be a “loser” of a case. He gave me the facts and truths as he saw them, advised me honestly and didn’t try to take the easy road out in a difficult case. If you have need for an attorney that you can believe when you look them in the eye and ask for help…Hire Mr. Ault.
A true Life saver. Not just saying this to say it either. I had 2 DUI with this attorney & Robert made my situation the best sicenerio possible. I hired Robert when I Agreed to a deferment of a second dui(which Robert didn’t want me to do because I was young. Should of listened… Robert knows his s**t) and lost it by getting a 3rd DUI. Within 3 yrs I had 3 duis so I was going into court for losing a deferment & being a habitual traffic affender after losing my deferment of the second DUI. So I was looking at 90/120(work release/house arrest). Robert got the charge down to a wreckless driving charge and only 29 days of house arrest & even crediting me a day for jail time when I got arrested for 3rd DUI. So grateful to have Robert at my side. Not only did he make it work for me he actually cared. Always on me if I’m not doing what I’m supposed to. His assistant and Robert have great communication. Calling to give a heads up on a court dates, monthly treatment reports etc. Very professional. Hands down Robert just gets you where you want to be. And that’s out the hole! I would high recommend him if you are in need of help. Such a good guy and a real life savor for me!
I hired rob after reviews on the internet. I thought what the heck lets go with him, he seems cool.. That was a understatement. He was very professional and knowledgeable and always gave it to me straight from the hip so there was never anything that I wasn’t expecting. I was very nervous about my situation DUI. Not only did I feel comfortable with Rob from our first meeting I felt confident and secure throughout the whole process. He never made me feel bad about what happen it’s life people make mistakes. I avoided a suspension on my licences a breath monitor and the DUI charge. He got my case down to Neg driving in 1st degree with only one day of work crew. I was impressed and very grateful. The judge also commended Rob for his work and knowledge about the charges, Everything that he told me to do I did and it paid off.. I can say I don’t ever want or need to use him again:) but in the case I need a lawyer he is the go to man. I have refereed him to three other people so far.. He is not only a great lawyer but a genuinely good guy, I’m super grateful for the work he put in my case… 10 stars from me.
Hard working attorney
Upon a 2nd arrest in 7 years pertaining to suspicion of DUI, I received a referral to Mr. Robert Ault from a trusted traffic attorney. Having dealt with the court system multiple times in the past, I knew I was up against a very difficult case and felt as if my back were against the wall. The odds were profoundly against receiving any favorable outcome that I would be satisfied with. I knew this going into my consultation with Mr. Ault.
I met with Mr. Ault the week of the arrest. Now I have dealt with many attorneys in the past, and for the most part, they were all the same. They would say just about anything up front to get you signed on. Once the checks start rolling in, your case doesn’t seem so clear cut, and they don’t seem so confident in your defense anymore. During my initial meeting with Mr. Ault, I could tell that he was quite different.
Mr. Ault was honest and very straightforward with me. He expressed how difficult my case was and explained to me the possible and likely scenario of where my case would end up. He did not try to oversell himself or the case but was rather blunt and honest. I liked this about him. I didn’t feel like he was trying to string me along, give me false hope and lead me to believe that this would all just disappear like some attorneys I encountered previously. Needless to say, I hired Mr. Ault.
The case dragged on for what seemed like forever, enduring multiple continuances. This was due to the very specific circumstances in my case and in the end, was for the greater good of the case. It wasn’t easy, as like with most people, I wanted it to be over with and move on from this very trying time in my life. Mr. Ault was there every step of the way and in ways other attorneys are not (or at least haven’t been in the past).
Again, he was very honest and did not sugarcoat the situation. He would often check in with me to see how things were going and to give me updates pertaining to the case. In the dozen or so times we met, he was always on time and showed up in person, never sending a colleague to fill in for him. He personally would return every one of my phone calls the day of, often within the hour. This stuff may seem like a given, but let me tell you first hand: with many attorneys it certainly isn’t.
For some time, it was looking like the case was going to go to trial. All the while Mr. Ault continued to speak with and attempt to resolve the case with the prosecutor. Mind you, this was a 2nd arrest in 7 years, which are rarely ever resolved with a plea deal for a lesser charge. As the case was looking like it was coming to a head and we were set for jury selection, I was nervous beyond belief. Then a week or so before court I received a call I never expected and was certain I would never receive; Mr. Ault had got the case reduced to a lesser charge. I could barely believe it. That was the best phone call I had received in years. And was the most relieved I had felt in a very long time. I immediately felt the weight lifted from my shoulders and the stress, tension, and anxiety that had been building, flutter away.
Mr. Ault was able to bring about a resolution that he himself saw unlikely and told me was improbable. See, in my experience, most attorneys tell you they can do something for you and fall short. Not Mr. Ault, he delivers. And he came through for me in a big way. Not just because he was able to obtain an incredible outcome for me in a very difficult case and under unfavorable circumstances, but because he was honest and forthcoming, dependable and reliable. He saw this case through to the end, never yielding but sacrificing his time and resources to fight for a resolution he believed to be unlikely.
I have never had, heard, nor seen any attorney working so hard for their client as Mr. Robert Ault did for me. He has my unwavering support and complete endorsement. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking counsel for DUI/DWI defense.
June 22, 2017
I was referred to Rob by another attorney who I respect & now I feel like I’ve made a friend for life. Although the process of my case went particularly long Rob never lost faith & continued to stay positive even when I sometimes wasn’t. His counsel & advise was tremendous & im confident is the reason I got the best result I could have hoped for..frankly probably better than I deserve. Rob if you ever read these things; you’re one in a million pal & I can’t thank you enough. I’m not grateful of the circumstances of us meeting, but I’m grateful we did. Thanks again.
Rob is an exceptional attorney who made the entire DUI process simple, smooth and stress free. He is knowledge and well respected in every courtroom and got me a wonderful outcome – considering I had two prior offenses. I’m so happy to had him as counsel and he is highly recommended – you’d be stupid not to hire this man!
Rob made a miracle happen in my case, I am glad I choose him. I talked to several other attorneys before him, and they said you are not walking out of this without at least a misdemeanor. Rob got it dismissed on one court day!
He definitely worth every penny. He might not be the most affordable option, but he will work with you in a very convenient payment plan. Rob was the only lawyer that day that got all his cases resolved. He understands and knows what he’s doing, also he is straight forward. He delivered much more than he actually promised when I first consulted him.
Straightforward, excellent, empathetic attorney I was proud to have by my side
My blood alcohol level at the time of my arrest was extremely high. As someone who has never gotten into trouble, my situation was a very scary one for me. But I am one who trusts my gut, and I had a really good feeling when I walked into Rob’s office. He listened, he was patient, and he spelled out the facts. He didn’t promise the world, but he did end up delivering it. Rob gave me all the right advice and explained to me how to be proactive and prepare myself for court. I carefully followed all his advice and when I stood up in front of the judge, even he commended Rob on how well I had been prepared. What struck me in the courtroom; however, was the respect shown towards Rob by his peers – from the prosecutor and other lawyers. Rob wasn’t just another DUI lawyer; he was an established and well-respected attorney whose peers acknowledged him with respect. Rob successfully fought my DUI down to a Reckless Driving charge, and soon it will be dismissed off my record. I am extremely grateful for everything that Rob did to make a terrible event into an excellent learning experience and a memory that I can now look back on.
Very Professional & Highly Recommended; He knows the law; Honest & Helpful
If you have found yourself in the unfortunate circumstances of needing an attorney for a DUI or Physical Control of a Vehicle while under the influence, then I recommend you hire Rob Ault. He is very knowledgeable of Washington State Laws and regulations. He was extremely helpful and realistic as to the likely outcomes of my situation. He provided me excellent and accurate guidance and was available to answer questions on both the Department of Licensing side and also on the legal criminal side. I was lucky in that I found him from searching the web, at a time when I needed someone. I spoke to others, called many firms and left messages – Rob got back to me almost immediately and was very clear as to fees, process and expectations. This was very different from other firms and attorneys I initially called. I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in this situation or a family member. Some of the attorneys/firms I called gave me a much lower initial fee, but they also had add on fees based on number of appearances in court and more… this is not the time to find the lowest cost attorney, as a DUI or Physical Control of Vehicle has long term repercussions, so you need an attorney that can best defend your situation with the hope that it gets resolved to the best outcome given your situation. While the best option is to never have to find an attorney for this situation, if you are reading this review, then it is likely not the case for you or a family member or a friend in this situation.
Awesome job & Best outcome
Rob was a rockstar! Even though he has many clients and is definitely a busy guy, he makes time for each individual person. From our first meeting I felt very comfortable with him and very informed. He made sure to present every possible obstacle and outcome I could be faced with so I was prepared throughout the entire process. We had to push out and continue a couple court dates, which was fine and gave me a better opportunity to get things done that I would need to as well as really work for a better outcome. I was VERY VERY pleased with my outcome. Rob got me the absolute best outcome I could have hoped for and wanted. He really pushes for his clients and stands behind you. I never doubted his ability nor felt uncomfortable with any of the steps we took. He works a lot in Bellevue and specifically Kirkland. He had an amazing rapport with the judges, prosecutors, other attorneys, and all parties involved throughout the process. You could tell he was well respected. I highly recommend Rob for any of your attorney needs, I hope I never need a lawyer again as I’m sure most hope, but if I did I would easily without thought hire him again and recommend him to anyone!
This is your guy
Robert Ault did an excellent job representing our college student throughout all the phases of a difficult case over the past year with a DUI charge and plea of not guilty. He was extremely supportive and thoughtful during a very painful and stressful time for all of us. He worked with our college student, and kept us well-informed. He was realistic and honest about the challenges of the case. I appreciated his honesty as it would do us no good to believe something other than the truth just to get our business (as we experienced with some attorneys we considered hiring). We were so shocked and confused and didn’t know what to do when this first happened. We started by contacting different attorneys. He walked us through the whole process on the first phone call. I am so grateful he was one of the attorneys we contacted. We subsequently interviewed several attorneys at length before deciding he was the BEST. None of the others compared to him, but we wanted to do our due diligence in hiring because we knew the outcome could be devastating; and we had no experience with this process (And we never want to have this experience again). He was so knowledgeable about all the aspects of the case, system, venue, and strategies he implemented.
We could not be more pleased with the OUTCOME where he was able to masterfully negotiate to a reckless driving charge. This outcome was an answer to prayer. We didn’t want a life ruined in what proves to be a labyrinth of a system that no one should attempt to face without representation. He stuck with us even though there were variables that made this case more complex including age, rate of speed, and being in a district court where these types of cases are exceptionally difficult to litigate. We would not have this outcome without him and his expert counsel. His fee was more than fair, and hiring him was worth every penny. He is just an all-around great attorney and person. I wish we’d met under other circumstances. Trust me, I was more thorough in exploring who to hire than probably any other client and most likely more anxious than anyone he’s encountered. Others who have to hire an attorney can benefit from my leg work. This is your guy!
