Seattle Criminal Defense Lawyers Help Clients Clear Their Names
Putting over 35 years of major felony case experience to work for you
If you’ve been charged with a crime in Washington State or are worried you may be charged, the advice and representation of a top defense attorney can be invaluable. Criminal prosecution puts immense pressure on the defendants, and the government can be ruthless in how it pursues a conviction. At Peale Law Firm Inc. in Seattle, we have decades of experience defending clients at all levels of the court system and a network of professional investigators and experts to help us establish the strongest defense for each case.
Trusted counselors review options for drug, theft, gun and weapon, domestic violence, and sex charges
Not all criminal prosecutions go to trial. Although we have over 35 years of experience defending clients before a jury, in some cases, the best option is a negotiation with the authorities. A negotiation can lead to a plea that includes less or even no jail time — and, under certain circumstances, no conviction at all. We consult extensively with our clients and use our knowledge of the courts, law enforcement and judges to determine the best course of action for them and then pursue it aggressively.
Aggressive litigators defend clients accused of homicide
Most criminal charges are brought under state law in state courts; those brought in federal courts tend to be for the most serious crimes. Federal prosecutions are better funded than state prosecutions, have a larger staff, often go much faster and have their own rules of procedure. If you or someone you care for faces charges for serious crimes, you need a criminal defense attorney with a record of success at both the state and federal level. At Peale Law Firm Inc., we have defended clients successfully before all levels of courts in Washington State, as well as federal courts.
Resolute defense in even the toughest cases
Major criminal charges require a more comprehensive defense. An attorney defending a serious crime has many duties, including:
- Assembling a team of investigators to review the facts of the case
- Contacting expert witnesses and obtaining exculpatory testimony
- Checking for procedural errors that may be used in the client’s defense
- Making a compelling and powerful argument before the judge or jury
At Peale Law Firm Inc., we have successfully defended hundreds of clients at trial, from juvenile cases and DUIs to capital offense charges. We are a particularly accomplished trial firm that knows how to handle the courts and the system for cases involving the most serious criminal felony charges.
