|ID||Authorized to practice law||2004||04/01/2017|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Stayed suspension/probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements. The State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Charles was slightly more expensive than some local attorneys. However, he was worth every dime and then some. State of Washington vs (me), several felony counts, result: not guilty. Charles worked with me for over 2 years, for a flat fee, keeping me from being arrested, jailed and ultimately felony-free! He was very clear about what he was doing with my case, and made sure everything he did was what I really wanted. Instead of just working a plea deal with the prosecutor, taking my money and going home, he worked with me all the way through a difficult trial. Charles is an actual honest lawyer! He never suggested that he, I or anyone else should lie to win the case, instead being honest and using his brilliant mind and devastating courtroom firepower to win. I will be forever grateful to Charles for giving my life of freedom back. P.S. I'm not sure what he got the disclipline action for, but I suspect it was due to an egotistical judge being outsmarted by Charles, or perhaps a disgruntled cheapskate client that was found guilty yet Charles urged them to not go to trial. At any rate I can honestly tell you he is THE best criminal defense attorney you will probably ever come across. Smartphone-spellcheck+bad eyesight=typos, sorry.

We recently hired Mr Crafts to help reduce my brothers 18 yr old felony drug charge to a misdemeanor. To help with his immigration status. Mr Crafts worked very hard to find a procedural error and succeeded. He then work with the prosecuting attorney to get the charge amended to a misdemeanor a simple possession charge and got it. If you are looking for a honest dedicated hard working attorney that does not give up till he has done everything he can to get the case done right. We highly recommend hiring Mr Crafts. If we could give Mr Crafts 6 stars we would.

Charles did an incredible job getting a felony sexual assault charge reduced to a disturbing the peace misdemeanor. He is incredibly through, creative and dedicated. We are eternally grateful to him and would not hesitate to recommend him.

Charles fights hard for his clients, and when all else fails isn't scared to rack 12 and let the jury decide the outcome. Few attorneys in the valley are willing to do this on a regular basis, but Charles is one of them.
