Juvenile Cases

juvenileHaving your child be accused of committing a crime in Everett, Washington, can be extremely stressful and frightening. It will make some parents even question their own parenting skills. It is understandable that for some parents, their initial reaction is to have their children “face the music” and take their punishment. However, a punishment can take many forms so it is important to consider and protect the child’s future. An isolated incident does not necessarily have to follow a child for the rest of their life.

When a child is accused of a crime, the government can proceed in a variety of different directions. Depending on the circumstances, the case could be filed in an adult district, superior, or municipal court. The government could also choose to file the case in a juvenile court. Despite claims to the contrary, adult courts are typically more associated with punishment as opposed to rehabilitation. Juvenile courts, on the other hand, are more focused on treatment and rehabilitation. In some instances, community diversion programs are also available for youths. In these types of proceedings, the child and parent(s) are given the chance to speak to a community panel about the accusations and the way all parties intend to move forward to make sure something similar does not occur again.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
