Get past the fear and anxiety of litigation with a personable and professional lawyer.


Criminal & DUI

Facing criminal charges is stressful, and fighting criminal charges is difficult. So it’s crucial to have a lawyer who can evaluate your case, explain the process, and help you know what to expect. I have defended hundreds of people from criminal charges in over 40 courts across seven counties, as both private counsel and a public defender. I am prepared to fight for you at every stage of your case.

People cannot sue for violations of the constitution for Washington State, but some state laws still protect individuals from unfair government treatment.
