About Us


Butler Beschen Law PLLC is one of the leading Bellingham law firms. We provide services in the areas of criminal defense, employment law and civil right. We represent clients in both State and Federal Courts.

Our law firm is premised upon the belief that narrowing the focus of a law practice. In our case, criminal defense, employment disputes and litigation are our primary focuses. We work hard to be the best attorneys in these specific areas and constantly aware of changes in those areas of law. This results in our clients receiving superior service and a level of legal competency that may be difficult, if not impossible, for most general practitioners to achieve.

We believe that our law firm is aligned with a growing trend of specialization, especially important in a constantly changing and complex criminal defense, employment law and litigation arena. Our team is committed to providing excellent client care while pursuing the most efficient and acceptable means of resolution for each dispute, situation or case.

We are one of the top criminal defense Bellingham law firms, located in Washington. We service clients in Whatcom, Skagit and Island Counties. We accept clients with cases in Federal, Superior, District and Municipal Courts.
