Why We Focus on Kitsap County Criminal Defense Cases and Discourage Hiring Out-of-town Lawyers.

Why do you need a Local attorney?  Each county does things differently.  Procedures differ from county to county.  Each county publishes its own court rules.  Prosecutors from different counties have different philosophies, reasons and methods for how they prosecute cases.  Judges view their county’s through their lenses.  These differences mean a lot when it comes to handling your case.  Knowing the statutes is only one part of practicing law.  Knowing and understanding both the statutes and the environment in which your case is set is critical to the best outcome possible.  We’re here every day.  No one knows Kitsap County better than us.  When you hire Pimentel & Associates, you hire a lawyer who is fully prepared.

Our Kitsap Legal Team is local, they live and work in Kitsap County.  Almost all of their work is litigated in Kitsap County.  They have spent years learning the logistics of Kitsap County.  They know the complex relationships that exist in the county they proudly call home.  Make the Local call to Pimentel & Associates at (360) 329-6699.

Our Kitsap County Defense Lawyers are located one block from the Kitsap county courthouse at 813 Division Street, Port Orchard, WA 98366.  Our convenient Port Orchard location ensures our legal team is on the ground and available whenever you need us. Call on us. Count on us. We’re here to help.
