Charged with a crime? Dealing with divorce or custody? Recovering from an injury? Let our accomplished trial attorneys shoulder your burdens and fix your problems. We promise to do everything in our power to make things better for you.
Giving You A Fighting Chance
Craig Platt has been called a “magician” for his improbable acquittals and dismissals in high-profile criminal cases across Washington state. Mimi Buescher is established as a tenacious litigator in family court. Brent Thompson is one of the top attorneys in the state for post-conviction relief.
Without a true trial lawyer on your side, you will get eaten alive by the prosecutor, your spouse’s attorney or the insurance company. We aren’t afraid of the courtroom. We’re the firm that opposing counsel doesn’t want to face. We’re the firm that gets referrals from other lawyers because they know we get results.

Experience, Experience, Experience
Our lawyers have more than 80 combined years of legal excellence. We know criminal defense law and the inner workings of the local courts. We know family law and what the judges will and won’t consider important in your case. If there’s a way out of your situation, we’re great negotiators. When your back is against the wall, we know how to win in court. Platt, Thompson and Buescher have the right experience to change the outcome of your case.
We Know Whidbey Island
We do handle cases in Seattle and statewide, but we like to focus on the homefront, representing the residents of Coupeville, Oak Harbor and Island County. A lot of our clients are longtime locals (like Brent Thompson who grew up on Whidbey Island). We also represent many military personnel and military dependents from the Naval Air Station who find themselves facing divorce court or an arrest for DUI or domestic violence.
Our attorneys live and work here. Our kids go to school here. We understand the joys (and sometimes frustrations) of island life. We know all the players in the Whidbey Island legal system. We understand the lifestyle and what’s important to our clients. Experience matters. Local experience is invaluable.
