In Washington State, a simple misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 3 months in jail and a $1000 fine. A gross misdemeanor, such as a DUI, carries a maximum penalty of 1 year in jail and a $5000 fine. If you are convicted of either a simple or gross misdemeanor, you are facing significant consequences, including the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction.

I have practiced law in King County, Snohomish County, Chelan County, and Grant County. I know the ins and outs of practicing criminal law in district and superior court. I have experience handling simple misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors, district court probation violations, superior court probation violations, civil contempt cases, and involuntary treatment cases.

I am a zealous and compassionate attorney who will fight for you!
