Tacoma, Washington has seen a decrease in recent years of violent crimes like murder, rape, aggravated assault and robbery. However, property crimes such as theft, particularly motor vehicle theft, and burglary occur at rates higher than the national average. If you are accused of a crime in Tacoma, having a competent defense attorney can mean the difference between acquittal and being found guilty, or between a deferred sentence or the maximum penalty. A criminal defense attorney can help you to represent yourself in the best possible light, from initial questioning through the arrest and trial. A good criminal defense lawyer can also help you stay out of jail prior to the trial and find exculpatory evidence, forcing the prosecution to truly prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Citizens facing criminal charges can lose their liberties and be forced to pay fines. In many cases, criminal charges result in jail time. If you recently have been accused of criminal charges such as robbery, vehicle theft, larceny, or assault in Pierce County, finding a criminal defense attorney based in Pierce County will improve your chances of reducing the severity of the charges. These attorneys are familiar with Washington state law as it relates to criminal charges and local legal proceedings. They will work with you to find the best strategy to get you the best outcome possible.
