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.

Defending Against Domestic Violence Allegations In Washington

Facing domestic violence allegations can affect every aspect of your life. Such allegations can inflict profound emotional distress, be intensely embarrassing and make it hard to know where to turn for help.

If this is your current predicament, our highly experienced criminal defense attorneys at Law Office of Amy Muth, PLLC, can help shield you from any legal and personal repercussions of the charges. We’ve handled cases similar to yours in Seattle and are ready and willing to stay by your side every step of the way.

The Burden Of Proof Lies With The Prosecution

While domestic violence allegations come with significant social stigma, defendants should remember that the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. The prosecution must establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a defendant is guilty of the allegations.

A thorough examination of all evidence presented by the prosecution is the key to a successful defense against domestic violence allegations. A highly experienced attorney can recognize discrepancies in the following:

  • Timelines
  • Witness statements
  • Police reports
  • Forensic evidence

A defense attorney can also identify and thwart any negative connotations the prosecution may have created around the defendant.

You Need An Attorney During A Trial

As you may know, personal vendettas can lead a family member or a household member to make domestic violence allegations in an attempt to use the legal system as a tool for retaliation. And it’s quite unfortunate that these cases are often charged as strangulation even without any evidence that strangulation occurred.

Should your domestic violence case go to trial, our seasoned attorneys can use tried-and-tested cross-examination skills to fish out motives that lead to reasonable doubt in your case.
