Seattle Violent Crimes Lawyers

Washington Carjacking Charges

Each year, 49,000 carjacking cases occur in the United States, accounting for two percent of all motor vehicle thefts.  Carjacking is the crime of attempting or completing the act of taking another individual’s motor vehicle against their will and with the intent of temporarily or permanently depriving them of their property.  Carjacking is committed in the presence of the vehicle owner through the means of force and/or fear.  90 percent of carjacking attempts involve the use or threat of a weapon, which will heighten the severity of charges if it applies to your particular case. 

At our Seattle law firm, we have attorneys who provide representation to individuals charged with violent crimes, including carjacking.  Carjacking is typically considered to be a felony, which will make the consequences even more severe for this violent offense.  If you are found guilty of carjacking, you could face the following penalties:

  • Long Jail Sentences
  • Large Fine Amounts
  • Costs associated with injury that may have occurred to the victim or their property
  • Probation

Experienced Seattle Carjacking Attorneys

The attorneys at our firm can use a number of strategic defenses to resolve carjacking charges and by examining the evidence and information surrounding your particular case, they can choose one that will work for you.  Effective defense strategies lead to acquittals, reduced sentences, and charge reductions, all of which are welcome alternatives when compared with full carjacking charges. 

The violent crime lawyers at our firm have worked in many cases involving carjacking charges and are familiar with how rigidly prosecutors and judges handle this type of offense.  Washington court officials have little tolerance for violent crimes, including carjacking, which will make it even tougher to overcome your charges.  Your Seattle violent crimes attorney will be an integral part of getting your carjacking charges reduced or dismissed, and their knowledge, skills, and experience will be very important to the overall success of your case.
