About George L. Bianchi

GEORGE BIANCHI: Founded in 1960 by Alfred J. Bianchi, The Bianchi Law Firm first began emphasizing DUI defense. After graduating from law school, George was told by his father that the firm could not afford for George to learn at their client’s expense, so George was ultimately hired by the King County Prosecutor’s Office. George was finally allowed to join the law firm in 1985 and has since become recognized as an innovator in the defense of DUI and other alcohol/drug-related crimes. George has lectured at numerous CLE programs throughout the United States concerning DUI defense and has been lead counsel in a number of cases resolving significant criminal law issues. He is a member of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL), the Washington Defenders Association (WDA), the Washington Foundation for Criminal Justice (WFCJ), and is a former president of Washington Foundation for Criminal Justice. George is a Founding Member, graduate, and guest lecturer of The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD). He was elected to the position of Regent with The National College for DUI Defense in July of 2000, elected Dean in 2010, and currently is a Fellow to the NCDD. In 1999, the WFCJ presented him with an Award for Creative Advocacy. Since 1999, Martindale-Hubbell has awarded him with their highest accolade, an AV rating in the legal profession, which he currently maintains. He has been named to the “Super Lawyers” list by Washington Law & Politics annually since 2000. In 2003, he was presented with the Dean’s Service Award “In Recognition of His Tireless Dedication, Generosity, and Efforts on behalf of the NCDD. In 2012, George was presented with a “Certificate of Appreciation” from WACDL “In Recognition of and Appreciation for Distinguished Service to the Organization and Its Goals” and in 2013, this same organization presented him with the “President’s Award” “For Your Distinguished Service to the Highest Traditions of the Criminal Defense Bar.” In December of 2013, the WFCJ presented George with an award for his “Tireless Leadership, Courage, Integrity, and Command of the Law” and in 2016 this same organization presented him with an “Attorney of the Year” award. In 2017 WACDL presented him with a “Champion of Justice Award” for his contributions to the Draeger Litigation Group. In 2022 the NCDD presented George with the “Erwin-Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award”, and in 2024 WACDL presented him with the “William O. Douglas Award” in recognition for a pattern of extraordinary achievement, courage, dedication in the practice of criminal law, relentless pursuit of justice, and willingness to go above and beyond in the defense of his clients.
