Every person charged with a crime is legally innocent prior to trial. Our firm is dedicated to working hard to keep clients from conviction.
Bellevue and Kirkland Criminal Lawyers – Defending Those Charged with Crimes in the Puget Sound Area
All persons are presumed innocent when charged with a crime. We work hard to keep it this way.
We provide a vigorous defense and representation for all clients under criminal investigation and/or charged with a crime.. We know that careers, reputations, and freedoms are at stake, and we work tenaciously within the confines of the law to preserve the innocence of our clients. We take our client’s matters to heart.
We Develop Strategies to Get Our Clients the Best Results Possible
Each criminal case is unique and requires a careful assessment of the evidence and the possible sentence or penalties (including a review of any prior criminal history, which may lead to enhanced sentencing). We often make pretrial motions seeking to exclude evidence, and negotiate with prosecutors to see if charges can be resolved on a basis that is acceptable to our client. We also assist clients in analyzing the risk of either accepting or rejecting the prosecutor’s best plea offer.
While there can be no guarantee of a favorable outcome, we have successfully convinced prosecutors to dismiss all charges against some clients and, in other cases, to reduce felony charges involving potentially lengthy prison terms to misdemeanor charges involving probation.
Our criminal law practice is headed by David Seeley, who has practiced criminal law for more than three decades.
