Criminal offenses involving unwanted sex acts like rape are extremely serious, and require the expertise of a seasoned rape attorney. The consequences of a conviction can be devastating, even for first time offenders who can face life imprisonment. It's important that your defense attorney be experienced and sensitive to the special considerations of violent sex crimes. Few crimes generate the kind of emotional minefields you'll find in a violent sex case. That is why you need to hire the right Seattle criminal defense lawyer.

We've been fighting false rape accusations for decades and know how to mount a successful defense. We place a special emphasis on sex crimes in our practice and have extensive experience investigating these cases and taking them apart at trial. We use some of the best experts in the scientific fields of DNA and Toxicology (for drug-related date rape cases, for example) to demonstrate in dramatic fashion the factual impossibility of a false claim. If the "alleged victim" is lying, you need someone who knows how to do more than just rely on a "reasonable doubt" defense. You need someone capable of producing "Perry Mason" moments in the courtroom when it counts.

When the Defense Rests ... on Technology

Modern criminal prosecutions are heavily dependent on technology like DNA typing in sexual assault cases. Detectives in a rape case will often obtain a "rape kit" from a medical examination of the alleged victim, and this evidence will include compelling DNA evidence that must be thoroughly understood at a scientific level in order to confront it effectively. Police and prosecutors have vast technology resources at their disposal and they will use them against you. If you don’t have an effective technology counterpunch on your side, you’re not getting a complete defense.

My dual-discipline training as both a Seattle criminal defense lawyer and an engineer translates into a direct advantage for YOU, enabling me to understand and challenge forensic evidence on not just legal grounds, but by also demonstrating that the government's technology is flawed. I know more about this stuff than any prosecutor I've ever met, and they know it.

You Don't Want to be a Registered Sex Offender

If convicted of sexual assault or rape, you may be required to register as a violent sex offender for the rest of your life. Your name, picture and address could be posted on the Web and at public meetings held by police officers in your neighborhood. Everyone will look at you "differently" forever more. Registered sex offenders are often driven out of communities and branded for life, unable to get employment or housing. Don't let this happen to you, take care when hiring a Seattle criminal defense lawyer.
