You Could Face Time in Jail or Prison

We represent people who, if convicted, face the risk of a year or more in prison for serious or repeat domestic violence offenses in King County and Pierce County. In some cases, a particular offense can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor based on your prior criminal history and the prosecutor's discretion.

As your Kent felony domestic violence lawyer, our goal is to limit your exposure to punishment by identifying to the prosecutor the weaknesses in the case against you and presenting the most effective possible defense in your case. In cases of domestic violence, that means investigating the facts of the case thoroughly and making the best possible assessment of the risks you face. We look for inconsistencies, ulterior motives, and other circumstances that might cast doubt on the stories of the state's witnesses.

Meanwhile, we also work closely with you when charged with domestic violence to find ways to improve your position in plea agreements. We might recommend a risk assessment or counseling program long before a case gets close to trial to improve your leverage with the prosecutor or maximize your chances in front of a sentencing judge.
