Vancouver, Washington, Criminal Defense Attorney

If you are facing criminal charges, you are probably anxious to know whether you will go to jail, face serious fines or lose your license.

I have 30+ years of experience as a lawyer defending people just like you from criminal charges. From my Vancouver, Washington, law firm, I can provide a strong shield in defense of your rights and freedom.

A Wide Variety of Criminal Cases

I can handle your criminal defense against charges such as:

I have 30+ years of experience to help you defend your firearm rights during criminal proceedings or seek to restore firearm rights after a conviction. I also have an extensive record of handling successful appeals.

Step by Step

I take a client-centered approach to criminal defense cases:

  • First, I listen to you, learning about the facts, background details, and your needs as a client.
  • Second, I give you an honest assessment. It doesn't help for me to tell you something that isn't true just to make you feel better. I am committed to giving straight answers so that you can make the best decisions possible.
  • Third, I will reassure you about your options. There is almost always something we can do within the law to lessen the consequences, and I will discuss some of those ideas with you.
  • Fourth, I will work with you to determine and execute a legal strategy. Sometimes the best outcome involves negotiation and plea-bargaining, and sometimes you are better off fighting the charges at trial.

Case Analysis

The strength of your case depends on a variety of circumstances. As your attorney, I will evaluate the strength of your case based on such factors as:

  • The charges brought against you
  • The weight of the government's evidence
  • How the evidence was obtained, and whether your rights were violated in the process, which could lead to exclusion of evidence and dismissal of your case
  • Your past criminal record, which could affect the maximum and minimum sentences allowed for your crime
