At the law office of Green & Ritchie, PLLC, we take a team approach to criminal defense cases. When you choose us, you will have a group of legal minds striving to get you a positive outcome. Our Vancouver, Washington, criminal defense lawyers will work hard and work together to keep you out of jail, help you avoid fines and keep your record clean.

Former Criminal Prosecutors Working for You

Our Vancouver, Washington criminal defense attorneys are former Vancouver and Clark County prosecutors who have worked side by side with the opposition. They know that we were worthy colleagues and they know that we are worthy opponents.

This is important, because it means we have already earned their trust. When we present them with our case, they know that we stand behind it. They know that we have done the work and that, if they do not work with us to find a solution, we will force them to prove every element of their case beyond a reasonable doubt when we go to court.

Charged With DUI?

As former prosecutors, we know Washington's DUI laws in and out. We understand your DUI charges and the DUI penalties you may face if convicted. We will challenge the prosecutor's evidence, including the officers' actions during your traffic stop and the breath test/field sobriety test results. We also defend our clients' driving privileges in driver's license suspension hearings.

Domestic Violence Defense

Have you been accused of domestic violence ? We have handled thousands of DV/assault cases from both sides. We know the law, the possible domestic violence penalties and how the government prosecutes these charges. We present a strong defense for clients facing domestic violence allegations and all related matters, including domestic assault charges and no contact orders.

Handling All Criminal Defense Matters

While we focus on DUI/DWI and domestic violence defense, our criminal defense team can take on all misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • Drug crimes, such as drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and selling drugs
  • Sex crimes, such as rape and sexual assault
  • Property crimes, including theft, burglary, shoplifting and vandalism
  • Assault and all related charges, such as aggravated assault or assault and battery

We defend people accused of crimes in Vancouver and the surrounding parts of Southwest Washington.

The Essential First Step: Investigation

In order to present a strong case to the opposition, we need to do the work first. Our Vancouver, Washington, criminal defense lawyers will take great care in interviewing witnesses. This is often critical, because the testimony of one witness may be the main piece of evidence in cases like DUIs, assault or domestic violence. We will carefully evaluate all other evidence as well.

We conduct our own investigation in criminal defense cases, and we conduct it immediately. That is the first step on the path to a positive outcome in your case.
