A Seattle Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Negotiate a Plea Deal

When you work with a Seattle criminal defense lawyer from our team, they’ll let you know if a plea deal is on the table and help you determine if a deal is fair. A plea deal is when you plead guilty to a lesser offense instead of enduring the consequences of your initial charge.

You can rely on us to determine if a deal is worth it and negotiate a deal that works for you. That said, if an appropriate deal isn’t offered, we can still defend you in court and work hard to protect you from your charges.
