According to Washington State criminal law, the severity of a robbery charge is related to the severity of the crime. If a deadly weapon was used during the robbery, it is called "armed robbery," which is often committed in a bank, home, or store. If that weapon is used to inflict bodily harm on a victim, then the severity of the crime is upgraded to "aggravated robbery." The penalties for these crimes are no laughing matter, and the perpetrator could even face multiple charges.

An "attempted robbery" charge in Federal Way describes a failed robbery effort, but doesn't mean the prosecutor won't seek the maximum penalty according to the law. No matter which charge you're facing, our Federal Way robbery attorneys are ready to help you develop a defense.

    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!
