I had some confusion with a criminal matter and Mr. Black was very helpful, as well a diligent with offering a second opinion on my matter. Very straightforward.

I just want to thank Tim Askerov and his team at black & Askerov. You guys did an amazing job defending my brother considering all evidence against him you guys still managed to get him a really good deal. I highly recommend this team if you need real representation. Hopefully I don’t need them again but if I do I would definitely give them a call first.
Gabriel

Thanks to Tim’s expertise and dedication, the false charges that were filed against me were dismissed. Great work!

Chris (and his team) Rocks! I highly recommend Chris Black and his team. I received a federal indictment for the first time and, of course, was scared out of my mind. Chris and the rest of the team eased my mind about the whole process. Unquestionably excellent customer service and professionalism! I am also pleased with the deal I received. If I ever get into any other trouble (which I have no plans for), Chris is the one I will call. Thank you so much for everything!
Dane

Chris is a great professional attorney who helped me through a difficult time. He is very responsive and answers any questions thoroughly. At each step of the process, Chris guided me through the available options with his own input on what might be the best for me. Overall, Chris is not only a great attorney that is very knowledgeable about the law, but also a great person who tries to understand your situation and fight for your best interest.
Ha

First, I’m so fortunate to have Chris Black as my attorney. Chris was through and detail to understand my case to provide as much guidance to bring my sentence down to a minimal. More importantly he was confident and always comfort me during the whole process which it took more than a year. Today, I’m very satisfied with the result came out at the court. For any criminal cases, I really recommend Chris as your attorney.
Jun

I am greatly appreciative of Chris. I have had my fair share of lawyers and he is by far the most responsive, helpful and diligent lawyer I’ve come across. Even during a very delayed federal case due to the pandemic, he kept me up to speed on everything involving my case and took my input into consideration throughout the whole process. He made a very difficult time a bit smoother and less stressful for my family and I. Even after sentencing he still responds and answers any questions I have. I highly recommend him!
HEAVYWEIGHT

10 stars if I could. Chris was very knowledgeable throughout my entire experience with him. My situation was ultimately a case that was pending for several years and Chris kept me well informed and updated anytime anything was moving throughout the whole process. He is super friendly and very professional. Given the particular damages and circumstances in my specific case, Chris was still able to to reduce my sentencing and defend me as best as possible. I can say I’m very pleased with the overall outcome for the severity of the charges, and him sticking by my side for the duration of this lengthy process, regardless of my financial status. Highly recommended!
Marc

Tim is an amazing attorney. Very responsive and genuinely cares about his clients. I would recommend him to anyone.
James

Christopher Black was everything I could’ve hoped for in a legal representative. I sought his services during a very difficult time of my life; I was scared, stressed and broke….. but Chris listened, learned and asked questions about my case, never once showing an ounce of judgment. He told things like they were and never sugar-coated or gave false hope for unlikely outcomes. He responded quickly even on weekends and graciously worked out a more affordable price tag for his services given my financial state. Never once did I feel like he didn’t have my absolute best interest in mind, regardless of the issues I brought before him. In the end, things worked out better than I could’ve ever hoped for. I don’t think it took much effort on his part (my case seemed fairly simple), but he pursued every avenue that led to improving my legal standing. I absolutely recommended his services to anyone seeking council for legal problems.
Tyler

Chris Black defended me in a case of abusive litigation regarding DV and was very understanding and able to see what was really happening when I explained the situation to him. He demonstrated professionalism and care in handling the case, while being cognizant of how the situation was a bit re-traumatizing for me. Chris was clear about what my options were and what the next steps were in this situation. He was well-prepared when we went to court and clearly communicated the facts to the judge, who quickly dismissed the case based on the facts. If you’re in an unfortunate situation where you need a defense attorney, I recommend reaching out to Chris Black.
Terri

It has been great pleasure working with Chris. He demonstrated strong expertise that eventually obtained the desired result for his client. I am super impressed that all of his suggestions are helpful, validated through the case. Chris is also highly responsive to his client. Overall, 5/5 star experience, and I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to you.
Guo

I hired Christopher Black to help my brother. He went above and beyond in his representation and kept us informed at every point of what was happening. With his expertise he was able to get the best possible outcome for my brother, and the family thanks him for that. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney.
Suzanne

I had the need to hire Chris to protect my constitutional rights in a civil matter with possible criminal overtones. Chris from the beginning was professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable. I watch him take on a much larger entity and had them literally guessing what happened to them. After repeated attempts at the goliath organization trying to intimidate him he stood his ground and assuring me he was 100% correct and the opposing counsel did not have a clue. Turns out Chris undersold he was dead on and never gave an inch. Not only is Chris a great attorney he is a great human being. Having someone of this caliber in your corner is not only comforting it is just plain smart.
Mark

I am sure there are a lot of good attorneys in Seattle, but you would be hard pressed to find one better than Chris Black. He is professional, knowledgeable, responsive and knows the law and courts well. Chris is a good man who strikes a fine line between empathy and reality. He navigates the court system with finesse, confidence and experience with a keen focus on the best outcome possible. Chris is always a phone call away, he listens and is sensitive to your situation, but he is always frank with you allowing you the details necessary to make an informed decision every step of the way. Having a great attorney on your side is non-negotiable when confronted with the enormity of the stress associated with the judicial system. You will need a good partner to be by your side every step of the way. Should you choose Chris, you will have the best money can provide.
Glen

Chris Black took on a very difficult case for our son. We have been so thankful and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a good strong lawyer. If it was not for Chris, I hate to think where our son would be. I find Chris to be honest and always a phone call away. I can not Say enough positive remarks about him.
Nancy

Chris has been a godsend for Logan. His evaluation of the case exhibited his determination to seek the best possible outcome for everyone involved. It was an uphill battle to even the field, because of the mess the previous representation had screwed up. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone. He is in a league by himself.
Bill

Chris Black was very helpful, compassionate, understanding, yet professional every step of the way. I knew that he’s exceptional at his job and he proved that all the way. Trust me it’s worth having him as your lawyer!!

Chris Black was my attorney for a case. He handled it with patience, understanding, respect and confidence. Very personable, would hire again. Thanks Chris, A+.
Austin

I have one word for Tim Askerov: perfect. Tim was very helpful, compassionate, understanding, yet professional every step of the way. He went above and beyond to get the best outcome and he kept me informed at all times. I would definitely rely on Chris again should I need any legal advice or service.
Jessica

My experience working with Chris Black was great. We felt going in to the case that chances of the desired outcome were slim, but Chris forged ahead anyway. Throughout every step of the legal process he kept us informed, even navigating through the pandemic, and even when he had a personal emergency that might have kept him from taking care of his clients. Chris’s legal knowledge and dedication is apparent, his arguments are well-written, and he shows his clients respect even in situations where many might be judgmental. On top of all of this, he successfully argued our case and won a man his freedom. I’m not sure what else you could want in somebody who represents you. Thank you, Chris!
KJ

I have worked with Chris and his associates over the years, and they are empathetic, focused professionals you can rely upon to help you sort through the complicated legal details and get the best outcomes possible. If you are in a difficult situation involving criminal law, I urge you to reach out to Black & Askerov. I can’t speak highly enough of the help they provided me during a difficult time.
Wil

Chris’ guidance and support as my attorney has been excellent. He is professional, knowledgeable and his expertise has been invaluable. In addition, he immediately puts you at ease with his kind and compassionate demeanor. He consistently kept me informed on the current status of my case. I am very satisfied with what Chris has accomplished for me and he was able to deliver on all requests and exceeded expectations. I could not have asked for a better attorney. I would recommend him to all.
S C

Chris’s knowledge of the legal system along with his genuine and kind nature made him a pleasure to work in an extremely stressful circumstance. Finding ourselves in a position we never anticipated, with Protection Orders filed against 3 family members, in what really had ulterior motives, and not sure how to proceed, I reached out to Chris who promptly returned my call on a Holiday weekend. He brought us peace of mind from the very first meeting, guiding us through all the steps we needed to present our case and responding to our questions in a timely manner. He was very thoughtful as to the best way to approach the situation. It was a good, strong plan that was successful! I am happy to recommend him to anyone who is in need.
Kathy

Chris is a lawyer that will make you feel at ease. Talking to him, you can sense the knowledge, compassion and professionalism he has.

I enlisted Chris Black for help with issues I was encountering with my neighbor. He came through in a big way and won the case. Throughout the entire process he was helpful, thoughtful and delivered on all of his commitments. Chris is the attorney you want on your side.
Kristen

Mr. Black and Mr. Askerov are outstanding legal tacticians. Their skills in negotiation and the courtroom are only enhanced by their responsiveness and empathy. While I hope neither family or friends never need their services they will be my first and only call. Anyone needing a top notch defender need look no further.t
Elizabeth

Chris Black is an excellent lawyer! He got my case taken care of and dismissed without me even having to come to court. I highly recommend him.

Chris is very knowledgeable and professional lawyer. He navigated a legal system for me as well as provided sufficient level of confidence. He replies in timely manner, responds to any questions, and makes his clients to feel comfortable. I would highly recommend him!
Daria

Chris’s services are phenomenal, he goes above and beyond to keep you updated on what exactly is going with your case. He represented my mom in Grant County, who was being charged with multiple charges, and made sure that she was well informed on her situation. Thanks to him, we were able to come to a very reasonable conclusion and gave our family some peace of mind. I highly recommend Chris, he is very knowledgeable, understanding, punctual, and very responsive. Thank you Chris.
Dante

Chris was very knowledgeable and made sure that I knew the full process. He is very personable and wants to make sure that his client is presenting themselves properly.
Larry

Chris Black has represented me in a deferred prosecution case for nearly two years. I chose Chris for his impeccable credentials and experience, but I continue to rely on him because he is conscientious, consistent, and effective. By my own doing, I have had several serious and difficult setbacks in my case. Chris had my back. Each time, he listened attentively to my needs and goals; gave his honest and clear legal assessment; and worked with me to establish a path forward. He is always assertive and efficient, yet diligent and devoted. Entirely because of Chris, court has given me numerous opportunities to change and grow. Additionally, Chris is adept and sharp, yet extraordinarily humble. He is personable and available, and genuinely cares about his clients. His first question to me is always about the state of my well-being, and how he can best support me. He assures me that he will take on the stress of my legal situation, so that I can just focus on myself. I am confident he will continue to put my best interests first. Chris absolutely strikes a rare balance between professionalism and compassion. For anyone seeking a sensational criminal defense attorney, I definitely recommend Chris.

Brett

Chris accepted my case “last minute”, listened to my side of the multi-faceted situation, then explained the process-which was different than what I thought it was. We discussed best courses of action, then agreed on the right answer was. He stayed in communication with me throughout. He was instrumental in resolving my case the way it was. I felt blessed to be able to afford him.R.

I highly recommend Chris Black. He just finished my case and I was very pleased with the results! He is very attentive, honest and knowledgeable about my options. I was truly impressed by his attention to detail and his professionalism.
Jimmy

I recently contacted and hired Chris Black to represent my father in his initial appearance prior to being transferred. Our situation was very sensitive in regards to the nature of the charges (federal charges) and the fact that my father needed representation in a state where none of us live. Chris was not only extremely knowledgable about next steps and the type of counsel my father needed, but he was also a quick communicator and quick to act in regards to meeting with my father. But, above that, it felt like he really cared about my father, our family, and the situation we were faced with and did his best to calm our nerves and provide us with relevant information moving forward. If we could hire him to represent my dad in our state, we would.
Nikki

Very professional easy to talk to and made me feel at ease. Chris Black kept my best interest in mind through out. I would highly recommend him.
Stefanie

EXCELLENT SERVICE We turned to Black Law Firm, when Customs and Border Protection officers seized cash at the airport because we didn’t report it properly and Authorities requested that a federal agency to take the seized money and forfeit it under federal law. Christopher Black help us effectively recover all of the cash minus small penalty. Chris was honest and upfront with us during our interaction by explaining to us all the options we have. He is very knowledgeable of the law and responsive to all the situations we had. He worked very hard for us to get our assets back and we are very happy with result. I’d recommend hiring Christopher R. Black to anyone needing Civil Forfeiture or Criminal defense representation in Seattle and surroundings.
Mahamed

Mr. Black was very helpful in getting my case closed as quickly as possible. Chris walked me through the different options and possibilities and made me feel confident that I would not have a blemish on my record. Consultations and fees were very reasonable. I will use Chris Black for all my Attorney needs. Thank you Mr. Black.
Ken

Recently my family and I experienced nothing any of us had ever come close to dealing with before. My husband and I hurriedly traveled to Seattle from Sandpoint Idaho to help one of our sons who had been arrested on felony assault charges. We were panicked, confused, and totally out of our element in that we have never needed the services of a lawyer before. Thankfully, while we were traveling across state a relative found Chris online for us and we decided to call. This was the best decision we could have made and it set the course for a positive outcome for our son and family. Not only were we able to get our son released from jail promptly but I believe that Chris’s vast experience and expertise was ultimately what led to our son never even being charged. It was a traumatic time for all of us and had we not had Chris on our side I am afraid our son’s life would have been changed dramatically and not for the best. Chris is straight forward, frank, very knowledgeable and he treated us with kindness and understanding. Chris is a genuine person who’s talent was used to help us in a way that I will never be able to properly thank him for. Contact Chris and Tim, you will immediately be set at ease and I know they will be able to help.
Deidre

Fantastic and sharp attorney, truly dedicated to his clients.
Mark

My family had be bothered by a legal issue off and on for decades. We went to different law firms in the area and were met with high retainers and opinions that the outcome of the case would be detrimental to our family. When we talked to Black Law, Chris himself talked to the family and laid out his opinion, strategy and cost. His opinion was we had a good chance at a positive outcome, and some chance at an outright dismissal. His retainer was lower than anyone else had quoted. HIs strategy was to work hard and smart and get started on the issue the next day. Which he did! In a matter of days, (not months as quoted elsewhere), he had the total case dismissed in our favor!! His work was right on the mark and immediate. He himself is personal and personable. I can’t say enough about his company and how he treats his clients. No promises, but straight talk with detailed strategy and opinion on outcome. Then he executes his strategy and our outcome was the best possible, and much better than expected. I recommend Chris the highest of anyone I would recommend for anything. Especially when it is legal. Great guy and firm.
Jeffery

I am enthusiastically recommending Chris Black. He worked with me over the course of a year while representing a family member of mine on a case that was very complex. In addition to his great skill and knowledge as an attorney, I found him to be unfailingly compassionate and kind, and always calm under very difficult circumstances. Chris goes out of his way to respond quickly to any question or issue. He is a person of high integrity and consistently provides excellent representation from start to finish. I will always be grateful to him.
Megan

Chris Black did an excellent job for our family. He was fair and diligent and we received a positive outcome for our case.
Julie

Chris is awesome. If you need legal representation in the Seattle area (or elsewhere)– he is likely the man you need. I found Black and Askerov, PLLC after hours of online research and cold calling law firms in the Seattle area. I narrowed my options to a handful of well regarded firms and eventually settled on Black and Askerov after speaking with Chris on the phone. From start to finish, I found Chris to be kind, knowledgeable, and confident. His experience was apparent from the beginning of our interactions, and he managed to calm my nerves more than a few times. Chris is everything one could want in an attorney–honest, reliable, calm, usually immediately responsive (or calls back/returns emails promptly), sets clear expectations and delivers on what he says he can do. The cost to value ratio falls squarely on the side of value. Thanks for everything, Chris! The outcome was the best I’d hoped for.
Curtis

We feel very blessed to have found Chris Black and his team. They are the most professional, thorough, and strategic firm i’ve ever met; and at all times treated us with dignity and respect. We hired Chris to defend against federal charges. This could have been a devastating time for our family, but Chris Black was able to help navigate us through the legal process until all the charges were completely dismissed. He was also able to arrange the return of our seized property. We are forever grateful for him and his team.

It is my privilege to recommend Chris Black. He is a kind person with a laser focus. His ability to grasp complex matters and provide salient advice to his client is second to none. I know that without his representation and perseverance the outcome of my case would have been inauspicious. Beyond his grasp of the law and command on the legal maneuvers, Chris is a humble and kind human. For all these reasons, I highly recommend Chris.

His an awesome lawyer if I in trouble again I would definitely hired him again. Thank you Christopher Robert black for all your good hard work.
Jose

Chris did a great job for me. I’m really pleased with all of his efforts and the results he helped me obtain.
Previous to hiring Chris, I was represented by a lawyer from the Federal Public Defenders Office. My lawyer had decided I was guilty, my case was not defendable and I should just accept the prosecutor’s plea agreement as written. I would have been entering a plea within months of arrest and I am certain the results would have just followed the federal sentencing guidelines resulting in two to three years of prison time. This would have given me little time to settle my personal matters prior to going to prison.
Immediately upon talking with Chris I was relieved in the change in attitude he brought to my case. Chris was always available to me and responded to my calls and emails quickly. Chris worked directly with me to obtain the necessary background information and other facts of the case. Although, I eventually pled guilty to one of the charges, Chris helped in the characterization of my actions and presented all of my information in the most favorable light. I’m sure that this approach severely reduced my eventual sentence. I received a sentence of months instead of years as a result of these efforts.
Additionally, the year of continuances allowed me to get all of my personal matters attended to prior to reporting to prison. I’m now in a much better personal state because of these effort.
I recommend anyone facing a criminal prosecution to immediately contact Chris for a consultation. I am sure he can be a valuable asset to you and your case.

…I was about to give up in my criminal case, the legal defender told me to plea guilty and I will be 6 months in prison and there was no solution for my case, I was facing up to 5 years in prison and 250,000 Dls fine, thank God my wife hire Mr. Black ; got released from jail two weeks after. 4 months after hiring Mr. Black I am at home, my case is finish and done with it. I have time served, I paid $100.00 fine and got 2 points on my record, I highly recommend Mr. Black, he is a professional, experienced and one of the best.

Christopher really helped me out during a tough time. I found myself in an unenviable position and Christopher was professional throughout the process. He kept me informed of what was going on and was always thorough.
I appreciated his frankness and candor while giving me peace of mind. Basically if Chris said it was going to be ok, i knew it would be and vice versa. Hopefully I’ll never need to use him again but would highly recommend. Felt lucky that he was my lawyer.

I had a difficult case with harmful false accusations, I was told by other professionals it was impossible to win. I wanted someone to believe in me, and that is exactly what Mr. Black and his team did. There are no words to describe his dedication to my case. Thanks to his knowledge, professionalism, and values I won “my impossible to win” case. He is an excellent lawyer but most of all a wonderful person.

Mr Black defended me in a DV 4th degree case recently. I talked to a couple of attorneys and tried to find the best one in Seattle. Only Mr Black had kind concern and care about what happened. The other attorneys are like: oh this is just another DV case, you finish some courses first.
This was my first time got involved in this, and I was very panic. He is very professional, with great insights and the best strategies on a case. He cares about people, gave me great advices and worked on the case. He always reply my questions very fast, either on phone or email.
Only 2 weeks after I hired Mr Black, my case got dismissed.
I strongly recommend him as the best defense lawyer.

Having found myself in a less than enviable position I needed a criminal attorney. Luckily for me, Chris was referred to me by one of his associates.

Everything I could ask for in a legal professional. To the point, and very frank. I was represented by Mr Black and found him to be the consummate professional, that he appears to be.

After dealing with another lawyer’s BS I was so glad to have Chris Black on my side. He deals with criminal cases daily and knows the players, the process, the ins and outs and how the prosecutors choose their strategies. Thank GOD my friend and attorney Jerry B. recommended Chris to me. Chris made me feel at ease. I was never charged, I believe thanks to Chris’ communication with the detective. Case not done, but ive got a solid advocate if it comes back. Trust Chris.

Mr Black defended me in a DV case last year. He is a very knowledgeable, professional and reliablle lawyer. He is also a very compassionate caring human being. He helped my during the most difficult time of my life and I consider myself very lucky for having such a strong lawyer by my side. He is an excellent lawyer who stands by his clients to defend their right with his outmost abilities. I feel very confident to recommend him as a top criminal lawyer.

I’ve worked with Chris for 23+ consecutive months. Chris’s experience in both criminal and family law have served me well in my dealings with the state. He has always provided me with valuable advice and is always responsive with email from both my self and everyone else involved in my cases. He always keeps my up to date with everything going on, and never makes a decision that will affect my cases without consulting me first. His rate is very reasonable and Chris has been flexible when I’ve had trouble keeping up with payments. It has been almost 2 years and he has stuck through it all with me. He has definitely been more than just a lawyer for me, he has also been a good friend.

All I can say it’s very simple. He is the BEST !
We went trough a very difficult case. We saw and consulted many different lawyers before him, but they just reviewed the case, studied it for a day (maybe) charged their fees and returned our case saying “their specialty is not for this case”
Finally we found him. We called late but He had the heart to accept to see us. He was very frank, honest and never had hided fees. He told us at front what to expect to spend.
Professionally, what can I say? He stood up for us and came out with a great solution to our case. We hired him ONLY one day before the court day!
This just speaks out for itself …He knows what he’s doing and he does it magnificent!
There are no words to express his professionalism, honesty, politeness, experience and knowledge as an Attorney at Law.

Tim worked diligently to understand the details of my case and was able to demonstrate my innocence. Due to Tim’s hard work and expertise, the charges filed against me were dismissed
This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Genuinely cares about his clients. Has successfully represented us twice for different matters. Has a comprehensive grasp of a wide range of legal issues and experiences. Works the issues exhaustively and completely, and is well-prepared. Effective and tenacious in the courtroom with judges and prosecutors; as a criminal defense attorney he is outstanding.

Tim was an incredible lawyer. He went above and beyond to help not only get my case heard, but completely vacated and dismissed. Even during the pandemic, he was excellent about keeping me updated about where we were at in the courts. He was also just very straight forward about my options, no sugar coating, which I really appreciated. Worth every cent, I would gladly return to Tim for legal help.

We talked to Tim about my brother who was detained by I.C.E. i,e. immigration customs enforcement for a 20 year old conviction back in 1998. Since that time after that he has been a model person. We needed help urgently for I.C.E was deporting him by mid Dec. 2018. Tim said he can help him and go work on vacating this old conviction. He was very effective, aggressive and knowledgeable. He got the old conviction vacated from Pierce County in record timing and saved by brother from Deportation. We are eternally grateful for his help. We highly recommend Tim to everyone we know or who needs a defense attorney. Tim is absolutely the best.

I am very happy with my decision to hire Tim. Tim was great about keeping me up to speed with any developments in my case and making sure I understood everything I needed to know about the legal proceedings. He was also very easy to reach whenever I had any questions. Tim negotiated a very positive result for me. I was extremely pleased with the way my case went and I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone seeking a criminal or civil defense attorney.

I came across Tim and his firm from a basic Google search. I lived outside Washington and did not know any lawyers in the state of Washington. I was facing a personally damaging charge that would have affected my reputation in a very negative way and was very concerned about this. I was also concerned about using a lawyer off of a search that I had never met face to face before. My concerns turned out to be unfounded as Tim represented me in an excellent manner. Working with Tim was great. He was responsive to my needs, explained the legal process I was facing in an easy to understand manner, and prepared very diligently for my case. Not only did he win my case, but during the ruling the judge actually commended him on his fine work on my case! I was very impressed. I would definitely recommend Tim to any person looking for a criminal or civil defense attorney in the state of Washington.

I would hire Tim again in a heartbeat, and if history repeats itself I may need to do so. My situation is one that demonstrates what happens when a poor judge is sitting on the bench. There was no evidence of my guilt, and in fact, my neighbor got caught lying in court and the judge did nothing. Instead of making the right decision the judge got angry and punished me for the fiasco my neighbors have caused. Tim looked at my case, looked at the law, saw there was no evidence for the judges decision and won my appeal. Since the Nightmare on the road known as 227th Place SE in Maple Valley continues we anticipate that when the order against our neighbors ends, they will begin their chaos again. I hope I don’t need Tim again, but wouldn’t hesitate to rehire him.
