DNA Evidence, Domestic Violence, Juvenile

About Me

My practice is focused almost entirely on sex offenses. This includes child molestation and child pornography charges. While many of my clients have already been charged with a criminal offense, some are simply being investigated for such crimes. My office is situated in Seattle, but I handle these cases throughout the State.
