Our client was accused of violation a Domestic Violence No Contact Order that had been issued as part of a conviction on an earlier case (we did not represent our client on that case). This new allegation triggered probation violation hearings in multiple courts as well. Our client was recommended to our office by several other attorneys due to our reputation for aggressiveness and success in difficult cases. Our client was facing many months in jail, on the new charge and on probation violations. This client previously had been convicted of violating the order (again, not represented by us on that matter) and had spent substantial time in jail.
Our office immediately got to work, contacting potential witnesses and investigating the location, timelines and background of all parties involved. In this case, the complaining alleged victim was entirely on board with the prosecution and wanted to see our client sent away for allegedly violating this no contact order.
This case ended up being dismissed the day before trial due to our hard work, investigation and trial preparation. Probation hearings for the earlier cases resulted in no sanctions whatsoever.
No contact orders violation accusations can be very difficult to defend, and in many instances are harder cases than an underlying assault allegation. Early preparation is key. Although we can begin representation of a case at any time, beginning investigation prior to prosecutorial ‘taint’ of witnesses is vastly preferred.
Our reputation as aggressive, effective attorneys precedes us, and is why many clients are referred to us by other attorneys for difficult or “hopeless” cases. Our track record at trial is excellent, and this respect in the legal community helps us achieve great results for clients when cases do not end up going to trial.
This Snohomish County case had repercussions for our client in Everett, Washington and Marysville, Washington. Dismissal allowed our client to keep his job, current relationship and freedom.

While many allegations follow similar patterns, each case is unique and must be treated accordingly. While we have an impressive record of success taking cases involving domestic violence allegations to trial, we know that in many instances the stress and combative nature of trial is not conducive to families and relationships, so we work hard to achieve great results pre-trial.
