Facing criminal charges is a tremendous hardship.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer can quickly and accurately assess a case and identify the key points on which it will turn. Time is often of the essence in criminal cases. Consultation with a defense law firm before arrest or immediately afterwards can make a huge difference in the outcome of the case. When your freedom is at stake, it is not a time to hold back. If you believe you are so much as suspected of a crime, you should consult with an experienced Seattle criminal defense lawyer right away to help get your life back.

Testimonials

Phenomenal Attorneys! Best in the State.

“I was in a long term relationship that turned toxic and shortly after I ended the relationship and moved out her two daughters and their grandma hated me so much they came up with a bunch of lies and falsely accused me. The state charged me with felony sexual assault and I was looking at over 20 years in prison. Connor and Blake from Vindicate Law were able to push the prosecutor and obtained a dismissal of the false accusations. So grateful to the team at Vindicate! I highly recommend them. Professional, hardworking, transparent, communicative, relentless and very knowledgeable.”

Very Satisfied

“My successful court case was handled by Carrie Fulton-Brown. She is highly professional, skilled, attentive, understanding, and respectful. Given my prior experience with other firms, I was extremely impressed with how available and responsive she was when I had questions. Ms. Fulton-Brown always got back to me promptly and always answered each of my messaged questions. Most importantly, I was extremely pleased with the results Ms. Fulton-Brown was able to get for me, in agreement with a challenging prosecutor. I had already fired another law firm, due to their pessimism regarding my case. Fortunately for me, Carrie Fulton-Brown delivered.”
