Alton B. McFadden went to law school at night, while working full time as a supervisor in a Fortune 500 company. He graduated magna cum laude from Seattle University School of Law in 1998. However, he had been litigating cases prior to graduation, as a legal intern Prosecutor for the cities of Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo.


If you need an aggressive attorney who is willing to fight for you, then Alton may well be the attorney you are looking for. Alton is an experienced litigator who regularly takes cases to trial to get his clients justice. Alton aggressively litigates a variety of cases, including:

  • Assault

  • Child Custody

  • Civil Rights

  • Divorce

  • Domestic Violence

  • DUI

  • Felonies

  • Paternity

  • Personal Injury

  • Sexual Assault

  • Tribal/Indian Court Cases

  • Vehicular Homicide


Alton’s aggressive approach has resulted in the State of Washington paying over $48,000 in costs and fees to one of his clients after the State lost the Domestic Violence-Assault case. The jury found that not only was the Defendant not guilty of assault, but he had lawfully used self-defense.


Alton's scope of practice even includes argument before the Washington Supreme Court where he prevailed against the State, helping to preserve our privacy rights. You can watch his oral argument here: http://www.tvw.org/index.php?option=com_tvwplayer&eventID=2013090004A


Alton is licensed to practice in Washington State and admitted to practice before the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribal Court and the Suquamish Tribal Court.


In his free time, Alton is an avid outdoorsman. He spends as much time as he can fly fishing and bird hunting over a good portion of the west, including Arizona (quail), California (chukar), Oregon (chukar, quail and pheasant), Montana (pheasant and sharp-tail grouse) and Washington (pheasant, quail, chukar, ruffed grouse, and forest grouse). He has two dogs: a German Shorthair Pointer named Max, whose first season in the field was 2000, and a German Wirehair Pointer named Sassy, whose first season in the field was 2010. Alton also shoots sporting clays as often as he can at the Bremerton Sportsmen’s club.


Lastly, but not the least, Alton is married to the love of his life, Kristy.
