Crimes in Washington can be categorized as either a felony or misdemeanor. Felonies are designated as class A, B or C, while misdemeanors can either be regular misdemeanors or gross misdemeanors depending on the crime that was committed.

A misdemeanor is the least serious crime that can be committed in Washington and is usually punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a fine of $1,000. On the other hand, class A felonies are the most serious crimes that can be committed in Washington. Class A felonies are punishable by up to life in prison, a fine of up to $50,000 or both.

The only crime that is more serious than a class A felony is aggravated first degree murder. If you are convicted of aggravated first degree murder in Washington state, you may face the death penalty.

Don’t put your future in the hands of an inexperienced attorney or public defender. Call the experienced Seattle criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold after you have been arrested or charged with a crime. Don’t make any important legal decisions until you have consulted with one of our knowledgeable attorneys to discuss what options are available to you.


A criminal conviction can destroy your freedom and your future and devastate your family. If you are charged with a crime – whether rightly or wrongly – you will need an experienced Seattle criminal defense attorney to protect your legal rights and defend you against the charge. Attorney Kevin Trombold has represented hundreds of defendants facing criminal charges in Seattle, Everett, Tacoma, and across the state of Washington. If you are charged with driving under the influence, domestic violence, a theft or robbery, a drug crime, or a weapons crime in the Seattle area, contact the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold as quickly as possible. Attorney Kevin Trombold understands from experience that good people make mistakes, and he offers the sound advice and aggressive defense representation those people need. He is committed to communicating candidly and clearly with clients and bringing each client’s case to its best possible conclusion.


If you are arrested, you will most likely be handcuffed, put into a police car and taken to the police station. If the officer plans on questioning you, then he is legally required to read you your Miranda rights before doing so. But, even before they read you your Miranda rights, they are allowed to use anything that you say against you in court. That’s why it’s always best to stay silent when dealing with law enforcement officers and exercise your right to an attorney.

The urge to assist one’s fellow man is understandable. After all, it’s part of human nature to want to be helpful.  But when the person asking for “your help and cooperation” is a police officer, you may want to think twice – and then, while you’re thinking it over, call your lawyer.  Often law enforcement officers will use that natural instinct you have “to help,” to facilitate their investigation of you.  In short, officer friendly may not be so friendly after all.

The best advice that any attorney can give you is to remain silent when you are being questioned or investigated by law enforcement officers. Wait until you have contacted an experienced Seattle criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold before you talk to police.

The goal for police is often to try and get you talking while you’re off guard or nervous, instead of taking the time to gather your thoughts and consult legal counsel. Law enforcement would like nothing more than for you to either incriminate yourself or say something that isn’t true (even if you made an honest mistake) – either of which allows them to leverage possible criminal charges against you in order to get what they want.

If you have been arrested, the first thing you should do is contact the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold to speak with our team of Seattle criminal defense attorneys.


Remember, if you are being charged with a crime, you are given the benefit of the doubt until the prosecution can prove that you are guilty.

“Beyond a reasonable doubt” means that the prosecution must present a solid, convincing case to prove that you committed the crime. Being arrested does not lead to an automatic conviction, so don’t give up hope once you have been taken to the police station and charged with a crime.

The team of Seattle criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold will stand by you through the entire legal process to defend your rights and fight for the best possible outcome for your case.


Kevin Trombold serves the Seattle area with a spirit of service to the community through his diligent work for clients throughout the state of Washington. If you are arrested and charged with a crime, don’t plead guilty, and don’t try to act as your own attorney. Far too much is at risk. Instead, contact the Law Offices of Kevin Trombold by calling 206-382-9200 as quickly as possible for a no-cost initial consultation.
