Kevin D. Tarvin earned his BS Degree in 1987 from Brigham Young University. He earned his Juris Doctorate in 1990 from the University of Puget Sound (now Seattle University). Upon graduating from law school and admission to the Washington State Bar, Kevin began his practice as a Deputy Prosecutor for the State of Washington. In 1991, Kevin left the state prosecutor's office for private practice where he served as a contract prosecutor for the City of Kirkland. In 1994, he was awarded the prosecution contract for the City of Kirkland where he continued to serve through 1998. Kevin's responsibilities included prosecuting all misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors committed in the City of Kirkland. He advised the Kirkland Police Department and participated frequently in police training. Kevin prosecuted thousands of cases. He was considered by his peers to be a tough prosecutor, who successfully tried hundreds of cases. Simultaneously, Kevin's peers considered him to be fair-minded, one who recognized that there are always at least two sides to a story, and one who never lost his compassion for people and their circumstances.

In 1998, Kevin entered private practice as a criminal defense attorney. During the past 15 years he has represented literally thousands of individuals charged with simple and the most serious of crimes. Kevin has defended hundreds of felony cases ranging from attempted murder, serious assaults, drug cases, burglary, theft, and domestic violence. Although Kevin continues to represent individuals charged with felonies, his passion is District and Municipal Court where he represents individuals charged with all misdemeanors but devotes most of his time defending serious driving offences such as DUI, Reckless Driving, Hit and Run, and Driving While Suspended. An equal amount of time is spent representing both men and women charged with Domestic Violence. Domestic violence allegations include Assault, Stalking, Trespassing, and No Contact Order Violations. Substantial rights are at issue domestic violence cases including loss of constitutional rights and negative credit reporting. If you have been charged with a criminal law violation and need immediate consultation, you are welcome to call Kevin (425) 467-6734.
