Those who have been accused of sexual assault, domestic violence, murder, or any other crime of violence need an attorney who has extensive experience handling these types of cases. Throughout his over 20 years of criminal law practice (including 12 years at the King County Prosecutor’s Office) Zach has handled hundreds of the most serious charges the State can bring including Murder, Sexual Assault, Child Abuse, Infant Homicide, Robbery, Assault, and Domestic Violence. His track record of success has resulted in a reputation throughout the state as the go-to attorney for anyone facing serious criminal charges.
Whether you simply believe that someone has accused you of a crime or you have been contacted by the police for questioning, it is never too early to contact an attorney to learn your rights and formulate a plan for responding to the allegations. As a prosecutor Zach saw countless cases involving defendants who were charged and ultimately convicted of crimes because they unwittingly waived their rights at the outset of an investigation. Many times, without those rights having been waived, the charges could not have been filed, let alone proven at trial.
