If you have criminal charges, you will need a good defense strategy to have your case dismissed by the judge or get a reduced sentence. An experienced criminal defense attorney will represent you in court and defend you against criminal charges. They review the materials, devise a defense strategy to appeal to the judge or jury, and effectively negotiate the terms for dismissal if it is an option. They are familiar with Washington state and local Whatcom County laws to justify your actions. Whatcom County criminal defense attorneys handle criminal cases ranging from assault, battery, and theft. They ensure a loss of liberty, property, or children does not occur.
