As of November 1, 2023, most juveniles will no longer have to register as a sex offender and be eligible to seal their convictions. Law enforcement will start removing eligible people from the registry soon and mailing letters confirming they have been removed. If you receive a letter indicating that you have been removed from the registry, please contact our office for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible to seal your offense.

Helping Resolve Sex Offender Registration Issues

Our firm has assisted clients on a wide range of issues related to sex offender registration.

Registration Removal (Adults And Juveniles)

  • Convictions for certain adult sex offenses, and all juvenile sex offenses, require a court’s permission to terminate the obligation to register as a sex offender. We have successfully petitioned courts throughout Western Washington to terminate sex offender registration for her clients, including in
    King County, Kitsap County, Pierce County, Thurston County and Snohomish County courts.

Sex Offender Leveling/Classification Decisions (Level I, II, or III)

  • We have assisted clients with issues related to how her clients’ sex offender classification levels are set, including through working with law enforcement to reduce a sex offender’s classification level and bringing writs to challenge sex offender classification. Challenging these classification decisions through court, in particular, is a lengthy, complicated process, requiring extensive briefing and fact gathering. If you are an appropriate candidate for this relief, our team will work closely with you to gather the information necessary to bring appropriate motions.
