Martin Duenhoelter is a criminal defense and traffic attorney in Pierce County, Washington. Martin has been practicing from the same Brick and Mortar Law office for 26 years, right across from the Courthouse in downtown Tacoma. He is one of the original Lawyers to do traffic infraction defense, having defended people accused of Speeding tickets over the last 25 years.

Martin and his staff are old school. They believe in old fashioned human contact, with every client. Although we do emails and texts, we prefer a real telephone call so that there are no misunderstandings. We have found this really helps people and puts them at ease.

You need an experienced defense lawyer who understands you and delivers great results. Martin Duenhoelter does exactly that.

    Martin and his staff were outstanding! He told me to mail him my ticket, and put it out of my mind. He took care of everything and I was extremely happy with the outcome. He's not only a great lawyer, but an excellent person whom I would recommend to anyone. Thanks, Martin!
