I am a Seattle Criminal Defense attorney who handles felonies, misdemeanors, DUIs and traffic violations and am currently accepting new clients in Seattle and the surrounding area. As a lifelong resident of Seattle, I grew up living aboard a sailboat in Ballard and enjoy spending my time on the water.
Education and Experience
I attended the University of Washington, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. After graduating from this institution in 2005, I went on to study law at the Seattle University School of Law. I graduated with my Juris Doctor in 2008.
While I was in law school, I completed an internship and externship at the King County Prosecutor’s Office Criminal Division. From 2007 to 2007, I worked as a Rule 9 Prosecutor for the Seattle City Attorney’s Office. I also spent time working as a Rule 9 Public Defender for the Associated Counsel the Accused during 2008. In 2009, I founded my own practice: the Law Office of Stefanie Dorn.
Associations and Awards
I am an active member of several professional organizations, including the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the American Bar Association, the King County Chapter of Washington Women Lawyers and the Washington State Bar Association.
During my time as a criminal defense lawyer, I have also won several awards. My most recent recognitions include an award for Outstanding Performance from Seattle Community Court and the Client’s Choice award from Avvo.com.
Throughout my career, I have served as a dedicated, compassionate advocate for my clients. I have substantial experience with litigation, and have appeared in court more than 1,000 times. I have experience working on both prosecution and defense teams, so I understand these cases from all sides. I am always willing to negotiate resolutions to cases outside of court. However, I am also incredibly comfortable in the courtroom and am always ready to fight for my clients’ rights.
I represent clients throughout the Seattle area and have represented clients in Snohomish, Pierce and King Superior Courts. I also have experience in District and Municipal Courts.
