Legal Protection After Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are often depicted in the media for their shock value. Whether it's a sex crime, a murder, or some form of assault, violent crime fuels documentary-style television shows, books, newspaper articles and blogs. But for those on either side of a violent crime case, actual lives are at stake, and consequences must be meted out according to rule of law.

If you've been party to a violent crime, either as a victim or the accused, you need legal protection and advocacy throughout the legal process. In Washington, the experienced attorneys at Carney & Marchi, P.S., can help.

For The Victims

Our firm represents victims of domestic violence who are seeking U visas, which are granted to individuals who are at risk of continued violence in their country of origin. U visas help immigrants live in safety while helping the police solve crime, where possible.

For The Accused

We provide savvy legal defense for people who have been charged with a variety of violent misdemeanors and felonies, including assault, domestic violence, sex crimes and murder. We have the knowledge and the experience to represent both citizens and noncitizens who are facing these charges in Washington state.

Our goal in these cases is to reduce the consequences that those charged with crime will face. Sometimes that means getting the charges reduced, and sometimes that can mean pleading guilty to a crime in exchange for a lighter sentence. And when necessary, we are prepared to fight on behalf of our clients in the courtroom for a favorable jury verdict.
