Criminal Misdemeanors

If you have been accused of a criminal misdemeanor, including domestic violence, assault, or a DUI/DWI, the attorneys of Connolly Tacon & Meserve can help.

We defend both categories of misdemeanors in Washington, which are:

  • Misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine
  • Gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a $5,000 fine

DUI / DWI Defense

If you’ve been charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated), it’s important to seek legal representation. Our attorneys can provide guidance in helping you determine the proper course of action and may be able to lessen the charge. DUIs and DWIs are both charged as gross misdemeanors, and result in mandatory time in jail as well as mandatory license suspension.

Traffic Infractions

Our attorneys have extensive history obtaining favorable results for our clients’ traffic matters. Fighting a traffic infraction is often worth the investment when you consider costs over time. Traffic infractions can affect your driving record, increase your insurance premiums, and result in costly fines and court costs.
