Jeffrey A. Lustick

"Jeffrey Lustick is one of the most competent attorneys I know. He is well versed not only in the ins and outs of the law but also the process along the way; this expertise enables him to competently and confidently manipulate the system to achieve the best possible results for his clients, which he is able to do time and time again. Being a former prosecutor for the City of Bellingham provides him with a unique perspective that is truly one of kind. It is that expert perspective, coupled with his surmounting experience in the legal community, that causes not only me but other members of the legal community to seek out his advice and opinions. I truly respect not only what Jeff accomplishes for his clients but also what he stands for within the legal community."Daelyn Julius, criminal defense | bellingham, whatcom, wa attorney, Bellingham, Wa

"I endorse Jeff Lustick. I have worked with Mr. Lustick on numerous occasions, always impressed by his quick thinking and experienced legal advice. On the most recent case we worked together on, he successfully negotiated with the Prosecuting Attorney to significantly reduce the convictions and jail time that our client was facing. I refer clients to his office which is the highest form of compliment that I can provide a fellow attorney."Robert Kelly, attorney, Bellingham, Wa

"I never imagined a criminal defense attorney would be so warm and genuine yet be so experienced and skilled of the legal system…Best of all, Jeff was able to get my case completely dismissed!"Andrew, criminal defense | bellingham, whatcom, wa client, Bellingham, WA

"Jeff is a great lawyer. He is very professional, down to earth, knowledgeable and he treats his clients with respect. What impressed me the most is that he believed in me and my innocence and fought for me. He is not the type of attorney that just makes deals with the prosecution to move a case along. He did a wonderful job and all along I felt comfortable and sense of security knowing he was handling my case. I tell everyone he is the only criminal attorney in Bellingham."Leslie, criminal defense | bellingham, whatcom, wa client, Lynden, WA

"An unfortunate incident put my 19 year military career and my retirement in jeopardy. The Lustick law firm saved me from being railroaded by the limited and narrow vision of the military judicial system. I had a limited knowledge of military law having served honorably for 19 years.

Right from the start, he was at my arraignment that afternoon. He carefully guided me through my first day in court, and I was very glad that he was there. We met later at his office, and discussed every aspect of my case. I told him what happened, and he took down every detail, not missing a beat. After he looked more into my case, he found many holes and defense for me. At the end of it all, we finally came to resolution that we were both very pleased with.
