While criminal charges in Seattle are most often property related, like theft or arson, the city also sees person-related charges ranging from assault to homicide. Criminal defense attorneys in the Seattle metropolitan area are familiar with local and state-wide statutes that govern citizens and how these laws may be enforced locally. Hiring a Seattle-based criminal defense lawyer is the best way to manage your case from start to resolution. Most criminal defense attorneys work independently or in a small firm, focusing in specific geographic areas which supports their specialization in your defense needs.

How much does a criminal defense lawyer charge per hour in the Seattle area

Based on Attorneys' reported rates, you should expect to pay between $143.00 and $192.00 per hour. This rate may be dependent on factors like experience and different specializations within criminal defense.
