About Us

The Law Office of Mark Knapp has been in business across the State of Washington from Seattle to Spokane and beyond for over 27 years. Our clients are working people that need to know their rights pertaining to NFA Gun Trusts, employment discrimination, criminal defense and how to deal with various issues involving possession and use of firearms.

We encourage anyone in the State of Washington to call regarding criminal charges or issues of self-defense and Constitutional rights. We are dedicated to identifying legal issues related to the needs of individuals and to provide appropriate legal advice where needed. I am only licensed in the State of Washington so any legal advice will relate to Washington law or federal matters even though there may be information of a more general nature on the site regarding the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

We encourage you to make an appointment via e-mail or by calling (253) 202-2081. Use the blog to get general legal questions answered. If you need an NFA trust we provide high quality trusts and have an experienced team that will help you with every aspect of completing your gun trust and making it remain successful over the years.

Employment Discrimination

We are available to give advice concerning issues related to employment and disciplinary matters and also assist law enforcement officers and military personnel. We focus on criminal defense but the firm also emphasizes United States Constitutional law and employment discrimination. This includes racial discrimination, age discrimination and discrimination based on religion or national origin.

Weapons Law

Our firm’s mission is to provide clients with legal counsel and educate armed citizens so that you will present appropriate force in an emergency. If you are charged with using a gun or other threatening use of force, we will defend your rights in court. We serve the military, police and civilian shooting communities, as well as any other groups or institutions that deal with issues regarding the legal use of armed force.

NFA Gun Trusts

Our law firm is also pleased to provide NFA Gun Trusts for residents of Washington state. Many people use NFA gun trusts to lawfully buy “NFA weapons,” including short barreled rifles and sound suppressors (silencers) without having to obtain the consent of their chief of police.

There are many important additional benefits of gun trusts for gun owners – not just for purchasers of NFA weapons. The trust is a totally private arrangement. You can leave your guns to members of your family without the intrusion and publicity of the probate system. No one will know about your collection.

Criminal Defense

Whether you just want to know about your rights and obligations or have criminal charges pending against you, we will answer your questions and represent you aggressively in the court system when necessary. Assault With a Deadly Weapon, Domestic violence, self-defense issues and false accusations of sexual assault are legal issues with which we normally are able to help ordinary working and middle-class people. Additionally, if you have a domestic violence or a felony conviction the courts will often restore your right to bear arms and/or vacate the conviction.
