Misdemeanors should not be taken lightly as they can cause damage to your professional prospects as well as cost you heavy fines and, in some cases, up to one year in a county jail. It is important to work with an experienced attorney to ensure that you do everything possible to avoid conviction.

Washington State Misdemeanor Attorney

Legal conceptIf you have been charged with a misdemeanor, you will have been given a citation prepared by a police officer, or a complaint/information document prepared by a prosecutor. The citation or complaint/information document includes a short statement of the offense with which you are charged, and states whether the offense is an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony. A few of the misdemeanor charges that I provide experienced representation for include:

  • Battery
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Domestic Violence Charges
  • Reckless / Negligent Driving
  • Hit and Run
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • DUI
  • Petty Theft
  • Drug Court Diversion
  • Possession of Paraphernalia
  • Resisting Arrest Without Violence
  • And others…

Being charged with a misdemeanor in Washington is no minor legal matter. Although they aren’t felonies, many are serious if convicted and will go on your permanent record. This can cause damage to any future hopes of employment. Many misdemeanor offenses can also be increased to a more serious charge if you have prior criminal convictions on your record. Don’t take chances with your future. Call me at (360) 493-2600.
