Criminal charges can be filed against anyone. If you are arrested, it is important to keep a one-time mistake from becoming a permanent criminal record.
At Nur Law, we are here to protect your freedom and your future when you face criminal charges. We handle all types of misdemeanor crimes, including theft, drug charges, drunk driving, vandalism, trespass, assault and domestic violence. We also handle traffic offenses such as speeding. We have offices in Everett and Seattle, Washington, to serve you best.
Know Your Rights: There are few rights that are more important than your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. If you attempt to explain your side of the story, you may give police the information they need to arrest and convict you.
Keeping Your Record Clean From Criminal Convictions
You should never plead guilty to criminal charges, no matter how minor, without speaking to an experienced defense lawyer. Pleading guilty to a criminal charge will result in a permanent criminal record that can affect your life in many ways. You may find it harder to buy or rent a home, get a job, or obtain a professional license. If you are an immigrant, you could be denied citizenship or even deported.
Dealing With Past Criminal Convictions
If you have a past arrest or conviction that is having a negative effect on your life today, we may be able to clear your criminal record by vacating or sealing old convictions.
For More Information About Traffic And DUI Charges
The following pages provide more information about how to protect yourself if you are stopped by police:
- DUI defense: A DUI arrest can result in suspension of your driver's license, job loss, and thousands of dollars in fines, surcharges and higher insurance costs. You may have a defense against this charge based on the circumstances of your arrest.
- Traffic citations: Paying a traffic ticket is the same as pleading guilty. You may face higher insurance costs and points on your driving record that can lead to driver's license suspension.
