Washington State Child Sex Abuse Attorneys Experienced at Getting Your Life Back for You
Seattle Child Abuse Attorneys Experienced Defending Against False Allegations of Child Sex Abuse, Child Molestation, Rape of a Child, and Assault of a Child
Not much is as frightening as being accused of child abuse. The revulsion people feel about child abuse can override the presumption of innocence and even simple fairness. To a person accused, it can feel that life has stopped . . . and may never restart.
But the accused can get justice. For sixteen years top Seattle child abuse defense attorney David S. Marshall and his team have been getting it for them—as many of them report here. This record is the reason other lawyers refer their clients to David and his team. Child abuse defense is the work to which they have dedicated themselves. They defend child abuse cases throughout Washington State—in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Spokane, Everett, Vancouver, and other cities and towns; in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Kitsap, and other counties; and in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and other regions of the United States.
Their dedication to child abuse defense means more than fighting for their clients in court. It also means keeping up to date on developments around the world in law, psychology, and medicine that concern child abuse allegations. At this site you'll find some of those developments, as well as a lot about how the best child abuse defense lawyers work.
