In residential evictions in some Washington counties the tenant can get a free attorney. All Pierce County eviction cases are heard in the Superior Court in Tacoma. Several years ago free attorneys were available to residential tenants in Tacoma, then the free attorney service disappeared for a few years–perhaps an effect of the rescission.
In any event, the free attorneys are back. Residential tenants facing eviction in Pierce County can get a free attorney at the courthouse in Tacoma.
It is usually not wise to face off in court against another party who has an attorney unless you have an attorney of you own.
