If you have been arrested for a felony or a misdemeanor, you have an ordeal ahead of you: relentless interrogation, aggressive prosecution, and potentially severe penalties, including fines and jail or prison time. But when you contact the Law Office of Laura Shaver, you immediately get a determined advocate to protect your rights and fight for the best possible results. Since my days as a public defender at the Yakima County Department of Assigned Counsel, I have presented vigorous defenses in state and federal criminal court as well as the juvenile justice system. I have capably managed a wide range of cases including violent felonies and have secured impressive victories, including dismissals of charges and acquittals. No lawyer can guarantee results, but I can promise to assert your rights and work tirelessly to mitigate the consequences of your arrest.
My firm is deeply committed to providing a dependable defense to state and federal criminal charges. I have earned a reputation for confident litigation in a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases, including:
I also assist minors in juvenile adjudications arising from a range of violent and nonviolent offenses.
When I take your case, I relentlessly pursue a positive outcome. Under the best facts, it is possible to get a dismissal of charges and never have to go to trial. At other times, a prosecutor insists on taking a case to trial, but the facts, if skillfully presented, convince the jury or judge to acquit. However, even when the facts are against a defendant, a skilled defense lawyer can still improve the outcome by getting a reduction in charges or sentencing, getting probation for a client instead of jail time, or getting a client into a sentencing alternative. When you hire me to defend you, you get my firm commitment to work tirelessly on your behalf.
