King County, Washington is the largest county in the state. As the home of Seattle, Washington, King County is also the most highly urbanized. Founded in the mid 1800’s, King County was at one time home to an independence movement during the prohibition movement. King County loved its saloons, enough for part of the county to secede in order to allow its taverns to remain open. What became Kitsap County still retains its independence to this day.
King County is one of the most educated counties in the country. It is home to many professionals, including a large number of King County lawyers. Attorneys in King County can help you with criminal law, personal injury litigation, bankruptcy, divorce, wills and trusts, and a variety of other legal issues.
King County lawyers were on both sides of the hotly contested 2004 governor’s race. King County was sued to stop vote recounts which occurred over three times. The eventual winner defeated her opponent by the razor slim margin of 133 votes. Attorneys in King County may therefore have been instrumental in indirectly deciding who would be the governor of Washington.
Many counties in the United States have adopted “No Cruising” laws, and King County is no exception. The County currently prohibits anyone from passing through certain designated high traffic areas more than twice in a two hour period, if their travel is also impeding traffic. The County leaves it up to the police to determine when someone is violating the ordinance and indeed impeding traffic by frequently driving through the area.
Lawyers in King County are familiar with the King County Superior Court and King County District Court. Both courts have very heavy caseloads. If you have a case in Kings County, you will want to retain attorneys in King County with experience in these courts.
