Different crimes are classified in differing levels of severity. The general levels of crimes by increasing severity are misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors and felonies.

Anyone charged with a felony, regardless of the class, needs a knowledgeable and aggressive Seattle criminal defense attorney to represent them.

Not only are the consequences of a conviction capable of seriously altering your future, you could be facing extensive prison time if convicted. The maximum prison sentence for a Class B felony conviction is 10 years. In addition to prison time, a fine of up to $20,000 dollars can be imposed upon you. The quality of your defense attorney is the most important factor to affect the final outcome in Class B felony charges. Don't take chances with your future; contact our firm without delay.
