Have you been arrested and are currently facing a criminal charge? If so, our lawyers understand that this case is often the most pressing issue in your life. This charge can have an impact on your career and your family. We treat each client’s case with the attention, diligence, and care it deserves.
Our Office is passionate about what we do. With decades of combined legal experience, we have the knowledge and familiarity needed to guide you through the Tacoma and Pierce County court system. With an office in downtown Tacoma, we know the local courts. Our Tacoma criminal lawyers are also very familiar with the Pierce County Criminal Rules.
We have successfully represented numerous other individuals in both the Tacoma Municipal Court and Pierce County District Court. Additionally, we have handled cases in Courts all throughout Pierce County, such as Fife, Puyallup, Lakewood, Sumner, Milton, Orting, Bonney Lake, Buckley, Steilacoom, and Wilkeson.
Tacoma has a number of different criminal courts that serve all of Pierce County. If you have been charged with a felony, you will be required to appear in the Pierce County Superior Court. If you are being charged with a misdemeanor, you will be required to appear in either the Pierce County District Court or the Pierce County Municipal Court.
As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we understand how important it is to obtain legal representation as soon as possible. Some types of cases have important deadlines which occur before the criminal case is even filed! Our office offers free consultations to potential clients, with no further obligations, so there is no risk in calling right away to see if we can help.
When our offices represent you in a criminal proceeding, we listen closely to your needs, hopes, and expectations. We understand that not everyone wants a trial. Some people understand they have made a mistake and that there will be consequences but do not want the rest of their lives ruined.
Although the allegations being brought against you might sound frightening and awful, you must remember the prosecution has the responsibility of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. It is not your burden to prove “innocence.” Not only must they show there is no reasonable possibility that anything else happened other than their allegation, but their evidence must have been lawfully obtained.
We believe in and strenuously fight for the Constitutional rights of our clients. While many arrests are legal and properly done, an unfortunate number are tainted by illegally gathered evidence and poor police work. We will carefully wade through your case searching for any and all issues, because all it takes is one, and the entire case could tip in our favor. Your charges could be substantially reduced or even dismissed. And if it is in the client’s best interest, we will vigorously fight and take the case to trial.
We understand that for many people this is the most terrifying time in your life, a time which could potentially have enormous consequences on your family and career. You shouldn’t have to handle this on our own. Our Tacoma criminal attorneys have the experience, skills, and understanding needed to navigate the Court system for you as well as the pressures you are under.
