DUI

Facing a DUI in the state of Washington is a very serious offense with heavy consequences. You could face sentencing for a DUI for several reasons, including having .08% or more blood alcohol concentration and having at least five nanograms of THC per milliliter of blood in your system. The consequences vary depending on if it's your first offense or if you've been previously charged.

Washington Assault & Domestic Violence Law

When it comes to assault and domestic violence, this is a very sensitive subject matter that requires grace and objectivity. Contrary to popular belief, it's not just a man causing harm to a woman. Assault and domestic violence, by law, is when any member of a household or family imposes abusive behavior on another household or family member. The abuse can be physical, mental, sexual, neglect, or economic control.

Theft, Fraud, and Embezzlement

While by legal definition theft, fraud, and embezzlement can all be in the same category, they're different and each has its own set of penalties. There are some key differences to help make the distinction. Theft involves property being stolen outright. Embezzlement is a type of theft, but it also involves fraud. Embezzlement is when a property is stolen because the thief deceived the rightful owner via fraud.

Drug Charges

With marijuana constantly in the news and on the ballot of states all over the country, it can be easy to understand why someone would be confused about what's legal and what isn't. Like most states, Washington has its own set of rules and regulations concerning marijuana and other drugs. If you were accused of possession, intent to sell, or another drug crime Scott can help.

Firearm Rights Restoration

When your rights to own a gun are taken away, you need a seasoned lawyer to help get those rights restored. Some situations leading up to having those rights revoked include felony crimes or domestic violence, among others.
