Our Trusted Attorneys Handle All Cases Heard in the Kitsap County District Court

View of Downtown Port According to their website, the Kitsap County District Court “has jurisdiction over misdemeanors and gross misdemeanor crimes.” This court, located in Port Orchard, also has jurisdiction over traffic offenses, small claims, orders of protection, unlawful harassment petitions, and probation services. The most common Bremerton cases heard in District Court include:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving with a suspended license

Our Bremerton District Court lawyers will help you address the charges, keep you informed of important court dates, and make sure paperwork is filed with the court clerk in a timely manner.

Most of the clients we represent in Kitsap County District Court have never been arrested, much less spent time in jail.

"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance.
