Being charged with any crime can be a frightening experience. Whether you have been charged with a driving offense like Driving under the Influence, another misdemeanor, or a felony, criminal proceedings can be confusing and frightening. With the risk of possible jail or prison time, fines, and other consequences, you need experienced, knowledgeable counsel at your side.
We have more than a decade of experience in all areas of criminal law that helps us make sure you get the best representation to protect your rights. We will evaluate the prosecution’s evidence, investigate the case on our own, and make sure you get the best defense possible. Our experience allows us to negotiate directly with prosecutors to persuade them to resolve cases without the need for trial. And, if negotiation is not successful, our extensive trial experience means you will continue to get the best possible defense all through a jury trial.
With open and honest communication, you will never be left in the dark about what’s going on in your case and how we plan to proceed. Count on us for the dedication and compassion you deserve. Get in touch with us
today to discuss your options.
Receive Knowledgeable Guidance for:
DUIs- A conviction for DUI can include imposition of large fines, mandatory jail time, revocation of your driver’s license, mandatory drug or alcohol treatment, and five years’ probation. Regardless of the details of your specific case, we have the knowledge and experience to make sure you get the best results possible.
Misdemeanors- All criminal charges, even misdemeanors like driving offenses, petty theft, and trespassing, are serious. Convictions for misdemeanors can result in fines, jail sentences, and/or probation. You need knowledgeable, experienced representation for any criminal case. We treat every case, misdemeanor or felony, as seriously as you do.
Felonies- Felony crimes can carry the most significant penalties. With our extensive experience in all classes of criminal law, including crimes as serious as homicide and as complicated as financial fraud, we can review the State’s evidence, conduct our own investigation, and provide the zealous defense that such serious charges demand.
Restoration of Rights
Beside jail time, fines, and probation, criminal convictions can also carry additional penalties such as restrictions on firearm possession, voting rights, and a criminal history that can impede your ability to get hired or promoted. We can help find out if you can get an old conviction removed from your record, or if you can get your voting or firearms rights restored.
Appeals- Criminal cases do not end with a jury verdict. Our attorneys have briefed and argued to the Washington Court of Appeals, Washington State Supreme Court, and 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, and we can provide a full set of services if your jury verdict should be reviewed by a higher court, whether we did the trial or not.
