This crime is often committed in relation to Tacoma commercial buildings, but it may also apply to trespassing on construction sites, empty lots, and private residential homes.

Trespassing can sometimes be the result of a simple misunderstanding, but even these charges should be treated seriously. For example, a person charged with criminal trespassing may have forgotten their identification, or may not have been aware that they were on private property when they were arrested. These facts still need to be presented to the prosecutor, so you should discuss the details with one of our qualified Tacoma trespassing lawyers.

    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!
