Criminal Defense We Help Good People in Bad Situations


Experienced Criminal Defense Representation in Port Orchard 

When you need a criminal defense lawyer, experience matters. Being accused of a crime changes your life. It is embarrassing, stressful, and can have long term consequences on employment or educational opportunities. Many criminal convictions can disqualify you from a job, student loan benefits, or even prevent you from moving out of state.

Virtually every criminal offense carries the possibility of incarceration. Many carry mandatory jail upon conviction, as well as expensive fines, probation, and other court-ordered conditions.

Criminal Cases We Handle 

Our experienced Kitsap County lawyers know that every case is different, as are every client’s priorities and concerns. Our job is to evaluate the facts of your individual case, and then advise you on the strengths or weaknesses of the state’s evidence against you and help you decide how best to proceed.

Stan Glisson and Jeremy Morris have extensive experience defending against criminal accusations, and a proven track record of winning acquittals, agreed dismissals, and other resolutions in our clients' cases. Even in situations where the state’s evidence is very strong, we find negotiated options to minimize the effect on your life, your career, and your long term goals.

Aggressive Defense for Kitsap County Criminal Charges

Anyone facing criminal charges needs an attorney who knows the system thoroughly. Your future, your goals, and your rights are far too valuable to leave to chance. The police and prosecutors are experienced, well-trained, and well-funded so you need an expert on your side too. A poorly handled case can cost thousands of dollars in fines and fees, while a good lawyer can often save you more than their fees.

Washington State Criminal Laws

In Washington, there are two main types of crimes: misdemeanors and felonies. While felony offenses are more serious than misdemeanors, getting convicted of a misdemeanor offense can still potentially result in a jail sentence.

The following are the two types of misdemeanors in Washington:

  • Misdemeanor (simple) – Punishable by a maximum county jail term of 90 days and/or a fine of up to $1,000
  • Gross misdemeanor – Carries a jail sentence of up to 364 days and/or a maximum fine of $5,000

On the other hand, a felony conviction leads to serving more than one year in state prison, rather than county jail. There are three classes to felonies in Washington:

The felony classes in Washington include:

  • Class A felony – Punishable by life imprisonment with or without the possibility of parole and/or a fine of up to $5,000
  • Class B felony – Carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and/or a fine not exceeding $20,000
  • Class C felony – Punishable by a jail or prison term of up to five years and/or a maximum fine of $10,000
