When accused of any crime in Washington State, it is very important that you stop all communication with the police. An experienced criminal defense attorney should be retained as soon as possible to protect your rights and defend you against further police actions and court orders.
Below are a few examples of criminal charges with special considerations:
- Domestic Violence - It is advisable to speak to a domestic violence attorney before communicating with the alleged victim. A No Contact Order is normally issued immediately and each violation is an additional criminal charge.
- DUI - You must request a hearing with the WA State DOL within 7 days of your arrest or your license will be automatically suspended. At this hearing, your DUI lawyer will fight to save your license.
- Assault Charges - False or exaggerated accusations are often made to police by witnesses or the alleged victim. Self-defense can be an important defense strategy.
