About

Jay Wilkinson LawBorn and raised in Western Washington, I have an undergraduate degree in Economics from Colorado College and attended law school at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I started my career over ten years ago as a prosecuting attorney, first as an intern with the Deschutes County in Bend, Oregon, and later for Lewis and Kitsap Counties. As a prosecutor I handled a variety of crimes including DUI, domestic violence assaults, drug crimes, and complex white collar crimes, felony traffic offenses, and murder.

As a defense attorney for the last six years, I have extensive jury trial experience, including numerous trials in both Superior Court (felonies) and District Court (misdemeanors). My most publicized trial victory occurred when a Seattle jury acquitted 2 ex-firefighters and my client of assault.

Outside of criminal law, my other areas of practice include immigration cases, Public Records Act disputes, and civil cases involving police misconduct and personal injury. I offer competitive rates and am available on both a flat fee basis, or hourly, depending on the case and the client’s needs. If you prefer to handle your case yourself, but need an attorney to guide you through the process, I also offer stand by legal assistance for a reduced fee. Please contact me at (206) 218-4502 or info@jaywilkinsonlaw.com for a free consultation.
