Kirkland Criminal Defense Attorney

Former Prosecutor. Award-Winning Defense.

Whatever DUI or criminal charge you face, you can rely on the trial-tested advocacy of Knauss Law Firm. My name is Matt Knauss, and I am a Kirkland criminal and DUI defense lawyer who has successfully handled 1,000s of criminal cases. I formerly worked as the lead city prosecutor for Kirkland, but chalking up wins for law enforcement wasn’t satisfying. I have since dedicated my entire legal practice to defending individual people, passionately advocating for their rights, liberties, and futures. Winner of the Avvo Clients’ Choice Award for Top DUI Attorney, and with a 10.0 Superb Avvo Rating from peers, I am recognized by the legal community and by clients for dedicated, hard-hitting defense that gets results. Please don’t hesitate to see how I can help you anywhere in King and Snohomish counties.
