After spending years as criminal prosecutors on one side of the courtroom, the attorneys of Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone now spend their days on the other side—defending people charged with crimes.
“Our clients know we’re always there for them,” said Senior Managing Attorney Mark Kaiman. “What we do is challenge the government to follow the correct criminal procedures and prove their cases. We play a vital role in the court process by keeping things fair—we’re a necessary part of the legal system.”

Each partner at Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone has practiced law as a prosecutor. Jeff Lustick and Mark Kaiman both spent years as full-time prosecuting attorneys for the Federal Government, the military and for the City of Bellingham. Adrian Madrone has served as a special municipal prosecutor in several circumstances.
Located just a block from the county courthouse in Bellingham, Lustick, Kaiman and Madrone are a trio of criminal defense attorneys who handle all manner of criminal cases—big or small, from speeding tickets to homicide.
“We run the gamut here at our practice, there is no typical case,” Lustick said. “Each one is different and it’s all about helping someone get through one of the worst moments of their life to reach one of their best—regaining their freedom.”
Together, the team holds over fifty years of legal experience, which is a tremendous asset in the world of criminal defense.
“Experience buys you credibility,” Kaiman said. “A lawyer’s most valuable asset is his or her reputation. It’s going to directly impact how their client is treated during the legal process.”
