Since 1997, the Seattle defense attorneys at The Marshall Defense Firm have focused on representing those accused of special assault—crimes of a particularly sensitive nature—including sexual assault, rape, child rape or sexual abuse/molestation, assault of a child, and domestic violence. No other Northwest law firm can match our depth of experience in defending persons accused of these kinds of crimes.

Cooperation with Other Lawyers

The way we usually help persons accused of child abuse and other kinds of special assault is straightforward: we represent them in court, in investigating and preparing their cases for court, in negotiations, in dealing with licensing boards or the media—wherever the accused needs our skill and our passion.

We may also work in cooperation with a lawyer outside our firm, usually in one of the following ways:

  • Consultation: In consulting with another lawyer, one of our attorneys can often save that lawyer time and help the lawyer prepare a stronger defense.
  • Association: We have tried several child abuse cases in co-operation with other lawyers. We can do this either as the lead attorney or as “second chair.”
  • Expert testimony: When the accused has lost because his previous lawyer did not perform competently, we can explain that in an affidavit or in live testimony, to help the new lawyer pursue a second chance for the accused.
