Any Felony Charge Demands A Proper Defense

Even though no one was injured or killed, the government does not view it as a “victimless” crime or a minor offense. Non-violent felonies are still felonies, subject to harsh punishment and all the collateral consequences of a criminal record.

If you stand accused of theft, fraud or any felony offense in the Seattle area or King County, reach out to Clement Law Center today. Our criminal defense attorney, Desmond Kolke, brings 30 years of experience to the charges you face. His in-depth knowledge and courtroom skills could make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

Skilled Representation For Non-Violent Felonies In The Greater Seattle Area

Mr. Kolke has defended individuals against the whole gamut of felony crimes, including:

  • Embezzlement
  • Identity theft and credit card fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Forgery
  • Real estate fraud
  • First-degree theft (value of $5,000 or more)
  • Second-degree theft (value of $750 or more)
  • Theft of a motor vehicle
  • Residential burglary or second-degree burglary
  • Bribery
  • Mail fraud and wire fraud

The Consequences Of A Conviction

Non-violent felonies carry lesser penalties than crimes of violence, but they are still very serious. Depending on the nature of the offense, prior crimes and other factors, the punishment may include prison or jail, large fines, home detention, asset forfeiture, restitution to the victim, and supervised release or probation. The felony conviction on your record can be a bar to certain jobs or careers.

For these reasons, a non-violent felony must be taken seriously and it pays to be proactive. In some cases, our lawyer’s intervention can convince the prosecutor to drop the charges altogether or reduce the charges to a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor. However, not every case is amenable to an out-of-court resolution. Mr. Kolke is an experienced trial lawyer who is prepared to defend before a judge or jury in state and federal courts of Washington.

Arrested For A White Collar Crime Or Theft Charge?

Our attorney has represented business owners, executives, professionals and public officials who have much to lose in addition to the court sanctions. He has also represented individuals of all walks of life, young and old, who are accused of theft. The mere allegations can be very damaging to your public and professional reputation, and a conviction can brand you as an untrustworthy person.

Mr. Kolke keeps all your options open, but does not automatically seek a plea deal. He works your case to find opportunities for a true defense or holes in the government’s case that will give leverage for a more favorable negotiation. He will investigate the evidence, bring in witnesses to testify on your behalf, negotiate where it is beneficial to you and always involve you in the strategy of your defense.
