Criminal Law

King, Snohomish, and Pierce Criminal Defense

The most important step you can take when facing a legal dispute, particularly one of the criminal sort, finding the right attorney can make the process as painless as possible. The ramifications from these types of cases can affect you for the rest of your life, so trusting that the attorney representing you is equipped for the job is of paramount concern. Criminal Defense attorneys at our King, Snohomish, and Pierce county offices are experienced defending clients on a variety of charges. We understand that mistakes happen, and we passionately believe they do not define a person, and everyone deserves a second chance.

Areas of Practice

At Northwest Law Group, we specialize in representing clients charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and those accused of Domestic Violence Assault. If you face a criminal matter on either front, our criminal defense attorneys working out of King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties can help see your case to a conclusion beneficial to you. Whether you have a prior criminal record or not, having the objective opinion of an experienced attorney can make all the difference when creating a winning strategy.

Driving Under the Influence

If you've been pulled over and a police officer issues a field sobriety test they claim you did not pass, you may be in danger of facing criminal charges if convicted. This offense can have severe consequences, with penalties increasing on each subsequent DUI conviction. If convicted, the court can suspend or revoke your license, send you to jail, and a number of other remedies depending on the specifics of the situation. For this reason, contacting one of our King County criminal defense attorneys can vastly reduce the hardship an arrest, and potential conviction, will have on your life.

Domestic Violence Assault

Domestic Violence Assault charges are a particular type of criminal charge emanating from disputes between family members or those who live in the same household. If the dispute escalates to the point where a physical altercation takes place, threats are made, or one spouse feels deeply afraid for their safety and well-being, the ramifications to your life can be serious. Once the police are called, if they find there is a reasonable basis for the allegations made, they are obligated to arrest the alleged perpetrator. This can be abrupt and extremely scary, which is why attorneys from our multiple locations are always here to aid you through this difficult time.

Client Reviews
Thank you, Northwest Law Group and Alice, our wonderful attorney, for making us feel heard. You clearly care about your clients, and I cannot thank you enough for your urgency in finalizing the case in a way that was the most beneficial to me and my kids. My children are in a stable home now and we have been able to move on, all thanks to you, Alice and your firm. - V.P
When I received the divorce papers from my husband, I was extremely worried and didn’t know what to do. I found Alice and Northwest Law Group through a friend, and just after my first meeting with Alice, I felt as though a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. She explained everything to me and continued to do so as she represented me through the conclusion of my case. I don’t know what I would have done without Alice! - Z.B
I just want to thank Northwest Law Group, PLLC. for being professionals in handling my DUI case. I made a huge mistake when I got behind the wheel of my car after a night of drinking. Thankfully, you were able to help me work through the confusing court process, ensuring that my mistake didn’t end up costing me time at work or with my family. - Anonymous
