The attorneys of Padula & Associates, LLC have cultivated a strong statewide reputation in an unorthodox manner. Although there are exceptions, most of the DUI and criminal defense attorneys you will encounter have either not achieved the level of recognition as our attorneys. Or, if they have, they made their name by being part of a larger DUI firm.

Building A Reputation for Excellence

Founding attorney and managing partner, Lizanne Padula, moved to Seattle with no professional or personal contacts in the Seattle area, after serving for 5 years as a Deputy Prosecutor on the Olympic Peninsula. Lizanne, without the assistance of an established firm or a mentoring attorney, started the process of building her own criminal defense reputation. She got started by “ghost-writing” pleadings for other attorneys. As she became more well known, other attorneys referred her the difficult and complicated cases that were intimidating and overwhelming. Lizanne not only took these cases―she won them!

Gradually Lizanne began to receive attention and industry recognition for her successes. Her unorthodox style and fearless litigation garnered attention and facilitated the growth of her reputation. She is widely viewed as one of the best DUI and criminal defense attorneys in the State.

Lizanne has successfully argued before the Washington State Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. In May of 2017, Lizanne was appointed to serve as a Judge Pro-Tem in Snohomish County. She has presented Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars for fellow attorneys all over the State. She serves as the Board President for Citizens for Judicial Excellence (CJE), teaches Ethics as part of the Continuing Legal Education credits (CLEs) offered by CJE, and teaches CLEs for the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL). She has received numerous awards including “Rising Star” and “Super Lawyer.” Lizanne is a tireless negotiator and a tenacious litigator.
