Property Crimes

If you have been charged with a property crime in Washington State let me put my years of experience to work for you. I was a felony public defender in Clark County for nine years. I represented hundreds of clients charged with property offenses.

If you are looking to hire a lawyer with real, practical, you can’t learn this from a book, you can only learn this by being immersed in front-line criminal defense for close to a decade – then I encourage you to call me to discuss your case.

Are you familiar with the figure of speech – “all I have is my word”? What if you are being prosecuted for an offense, where your “word” is in jeopardy of being ruined? Property crimes can call into question your character, trustworthiness and credibility. Especially, when accused of stealing property or possessing stolen property.

Let’s be real — crimes of dishonesty are “red-flags” on background checks for employment and housing. Property crimes can also trigger immigration consequences such as removal from the United States (deportation) and denial of naturalization.
