When an individual was arrested, and charged with attempting to cash forged checks in several banks throughout the Seattle area, they contacted the criminal defense lawyers with Emerald City Law Group. This was a felony level crime and even though there was video evidence, witness statements, and other physical evidence, we moved quickly and aggressively on their behalf. By scrutinizing the available evidence, we pointed out several flaws and conveyed to the prosecution that they would have a hard time presenting much of their ‘so called’ evidence. This led to intensive negotiations and an agreement to proceed as a misdemeanor. By facilitating this agreement, the client also becomes eligible after a year to have the offense completely dismissed after a year.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
