Auburn, WA Criminal Attorney

Cristine Beckwith defends Auburn area residents who have been accused of committing a crime or DUI. She understands that criminal charges can be scary, especially if this is your first arrest. Cristine is prepared to answer your questions and give you an honest assessment of your case.

The outcome of your criminal or DUI arrest will depend upon the facts of your case, the quality of your legal representation, and the judge or jury. A quality defense should not only present you in a favorable manner, but it should also weaken the evidence of the prosecution. Each case is unique and therefore each defense that we build is customized to our clients’ situation.

Advocating for Auburn Area Residents

It is a good idea to be defended by a criminal defense attorney who is experienced with the court where your pending criminal, DUI, domestic violence, or juvenile charges are filed. The judge and prosecutor assigned to your case are powerful, but neither of them is on your side. An important part of your lawyer’s job is to convince the court that your case should be dismissed or reduced to a less serious charge.

Cristine’s experience with the municipal courts of Auburn, Pacific, and Sumner, Washington can create an important advantage for her clients. In most situations, Cristine can negotiate a better result than if the case were to go to trial. However, if a jury trial is necessary, you can be assured that you have an experienced and influential trial attorney in your corner.

Cristine is compassionate and nonjudgmental with clients, but she is a fierce competitor in the courtroom. If Cristine is your criminal defense lawyer, all of your legal options will be explored and clearly communicated to you. To learn more about your options, contact Cristine for a free consultation.
