Violent Crime Defense

Violent crime ranges from the use of force to the lesser act of threatening force. Whether someone committed violence as a means to an end or the violence was the alleged goal, both cases can be charged as a violent crime. This includes cases of robbery, assault, domestic violence, child abuse, and rape.

From assault to domestic violence, severe charges can be levied in cases that involved even a minor aggression. In cases of domestic abuse, the prosecutor’s office may even place undue weight on a witness’s claim in order to appear vigilant in protecting their rights at your expense. For this reason, it is essential to hire an attorney like Neil Cane who can pinpoint valuable evidence in the defense of your case and ultimately sway the jury in your favor.

Drug Crime Defense

Drug crime can involve anything from minor possession to major manufacturing and distribution charges. The severity of drug charges will also range based on the category of drug. Whereas a person under the age of 21 may be charged with a misdemeanor for possessing a small amount of marijuana, anyone charged with the possession of cocaine or methamphetamine will be contesting a felony.

If these crimes are affiliated with drug sales or intent to distribute, they can carry very serious charges in the state of Washington. In addition to prison time, the accused could potentially have to forfeit property tied to the alleged drug sales. Mr. Cane has defended each type of these drug crimes and understands what it takes to find flaws in drug-related cases against his clients. From challenging how the search and seizure was conducted to determining the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you, Neil Cane will work tirelessly to dismiss or mitigate your charges.
