Richland Domestic Violence Attorney
Trial-Tested Defense on Your Side: (855) 622-5732
Domestic violence involves criminal acts committed by one family or household
member against a spouse, former spouse, present or former cohabitant.
The state of Washington prosecutes domestic violence charges very heavily.
From extensive fines to jail time and the stigma of a violent charge affecting
your friendships, family life, and job opportunities for years to come,
domestic violence charges must be taken very seriously by the accused
man or woman, even if the charges are based on false claims.

Domestic Violence Case Results
I represent clients facing charges across the spectrum of
criminal defense, and have had great success in defending people charged with domestic
violence. Some of my most recent domestic violence case results include:
- People v. Zak J. – Zak was charged with attacking two different people
at his home. The State asserted one of the alleged victims was a member
of Zak’s family. On the eve of trial, the case was dismissed.
- People v. Ron W. – Ron was accused of punching his significant other
in the eye. The police arrived at his home in force and took him into
custody. After several months of negotiations, the People agreed to not
prosecute the matter provided Ron W. obeyed all laws. The case is scheduled
to be dismissed in its entirety in 2016.
- People v. Luis J.G. – Luis was charged with hitting his ex-wife.
After several months, I was able to convince the prosecutor that the alleged
victim was lying to the police so that she could/would have an advantage
over Luis J.G. in a custody hearing.
- People v.____ – A young woman was accused by her live in boyfriend
of attacking him with a life. A trial was held. On cross examination the
ex-live in boyfriend’s father admitted that he saw nothing of the
alleged attack with a knife and the ex-boyfriend on cross exhibited hostility
and control. The defendant was found not guilty.
- City of Pasco v. Lorenzo I. – Assault domestic violence, case dismissed
- People v. ____ - Continuance for a year, with charges dismissed upon completion
of the terms of the agreement
Fighting a Domestic Violence Charge
Domestic violence includes charges such as:
- Interfering with a report of domestic violence
- Aggravated assault
- Manslaughter or murder
- Reckless endangerment
- False imprisonment
Once you have been arrested for a domestic violence charge, a judge will
schedule an arraignment proceeding. At the arraignment proceeding, a prosecuting
attorney will file formal domestic violence charges. You will then plead
guilty or not guilty and the judge will determine the conditions of your
release including whether or not a no-contact order must be put in place.
Sentencing is the last step in the process. It is incredibly important
to retain a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to gather the evidence
to support you and begin to develop an action plan to protect your future
and even have your charges dismissed.
