If you are arrested and are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you need legal representation right away. Criminal defense clients and their families who are facing serious charges in Bellingham and Whatcom, Skagit, or San Juan County don’t have to face the criminal justice system alone. As former prosecutors, we understand the system, know how prosecutors think, and can provide you with a distinct advantage.

If you’ve been charged with a federal crime, the procedures can be confusing. Federal law presents significant challenges to a criminal defendant, and the consequences of a federal conviction are often much more severe than in the state courts. Federal prosecution moves even more quickly and differs greatly from state court processes. We can help you anticipate and prepare for every step.
