Seeking The Best Options & Outcomes For You
As you ride in the back of a police car to be processed for a criminal charge you never feel more alone. Will you keep your job? Will you be seen in a stigmatized manner? What will happen? At Evergreen Defenders in Olympia, Washington, we assure our clients that they will not handle this alone because one of us will be by their side.
Even the best-intentioned people can make mistakes. One drink too many or being at the wrong place at the wrong time can result in criminal charges and a subsequent record.

Too much is at stake to break down and enter a plea of guilty. Evergreen Defenders rarely will advise a client to plead guilty. At our firm, we always fight DUI charges in court.
Our criminal law attorneys at Evergree Defenders are licensed in Washington and Oregon, as well as in Federal Court. Our Attorneys take a diligent and dedicated approach to help clients facing a variety of state and federal crimes. Contact us at (360) 943-8999.

A seemingly youthful mistake becomes magnified if your teenager is arrested for underage crimes. While the offense may seem straightforward at first glance, these cases can actually be quite complicated. Juvenile crimes are similar or the same as those for adults but the penalties, procedures and the goals of Juvenile Court are quite different. At Evergreen Defenders, we understand that these serious criminal matters affect the futures of our area youth and we work hard to protect their rights.
It is illegal to sell or distribute controlled substances. Penalties for these crimes may increase if these actions took place within a certain distance of a school or church. Similarly, being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia is also considered a crime. Learn your rights and let us help you with the best defense possible.
At Evergreen Defenders in Olympia, Washington, we understand that good people sometimes make bad choices, but those choices should not result in the automatic loss of your driver’s license. The administrative process involving your driver’s license is not to be ignored. Losing your license is both personally limiting and potentially career ending. If you meet requirements, you may request a hearing to stay (not impose) the revocation or to reinstate your driving privilege.
Criminal law is the body of law that relates to so-called “public wrongs.” Criminal law does not concern itself with disputes between individuals, but relates to offenses against the public order. The federal government, along with cities and states, define and prosecute people who commit crimes that range from minor traffic violations to serious, violent offenses. Washington State breaks their crimes into two major groups: Felonies and Misdemeanors.
