Washington Criminal Defense Attorney
Have you been arrested or charged with a crime?
If so, then you need to be represented by an attorney skilled in criminal defense. We´ve handled cases in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, King County, Snohomish County and Pierce County.
Your attorney will help you understand what powers the prosecutors and judges have and what powers they don´t have. Without this advice you are flying blind through the system. Hire at a lawyer to give you patient, non-conflicted and nonjudgmental advice about your DUI, Assault, Domestic Violence or other type of case.
Rights of the Defendant
Keep in mind: You don´t lose all your rights just because you are charged with a crime. You have the right to a speedy trial, the right to remain silent throughout the process, the right to appeal a bad decision by the court. None of these rights go out the door just because you are charged with a crime.

Capital Crimes & Felony Charges
Felony charges are heard in the Superior Court in which the allegation occurred. Standard punishments upon conviction can be anywhere from community service hours up to life in jail. In King County your case might be heard in downtown Seattle or in Kent at the Regional Justice Center. It depends on whether your case happened either North or South of the Tukwila – Renton line.
