About Mark Sternik

my-linkedin-picMark Sternik founded Sternik Law after having worked at some of the premier criminal/traffic defense firms in the Seattle-Tacoma area. Prior to private practice, Mark worked at the prosecutor’s office. The experience of having worked on both sides of the ball gave Mark important insight into the process. Mark took the knowledge and experience gained while working at these organizations and added his own unique approach to the practice of law to create Sternik Law.

Sternik Law is client focused firm. The goals of the client are of the utmost importance, and Sternik Law firmly believes in being accessible and personable. The recipe is simple: be kind to clients and work hard to achieve their goals.
