Being charged with any crime is an overwhelming experience that can make it feel like there is little hope, but our Seattle malicious mischief attorneys can reveal legal options that you might not realize exist.

For instance, before the severity of your crime can be determined the prosecutor will have to prove the monetary value of any property that was allegedly destroyed. Obviously, this is far from an exact science, so the goal of your professional litigator will be to minimize the penalties you face and obtain a more favorable outcome.

You probably have some questions you would like to have answered, but not know which way to turn. Don’t let the stress of a criminal charge keep you from contacting someone who can help.

    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.
