We Help People Facing all Criminal Charges

Burg Criminal Defense is experienced in defending almost any criminal charge. As you navigate through this web site, you will notice that we have listed many Washington state criminal offenses. We have helped people with all types of charges. No matter what charges you may be facing, we are happy to meet with you to discuss your case and options.

Experience that Matters

We are experienced in helping people accused of everything from shoplifting to murder. We find that we are regularly in court with our clients on cases involving DUI, physical control, domestic violence, assault, theft, reckless driving, minor in possession, drug charges (VUCSA), and everything in between.


Driving While Under the Influence Charges

Washington state DUIs are one of the most common offenses charged here.  There are approximately 40,000 people per year accused of Washington state DUI or DWI. Consequently, we have a lot of experience with DUIs in Washington state - having helped hundreds of people with these cases.  We have earned an excellent reputation in this field.

DUIs are one of the hardest cases to defend, many attorneys have told us that they are harder than even murder cases. The law is difficult, the science is complicated and there is a lot of public sentiment against people accused of DUIs. As attorneys, we have worked very hard to become highly skilled at representing people accused of Washington DUIs.

Visit our Web Sites focused on Specific Charges

For some of the most common charges we have created separate web sites. We thought that providing such detailed information for each type of charge would help people facing those charges:

DUI Defense DV Defense Drug Defense MIP Defense
Hit & Run Defense Theft & Fraud Defense Reckless Driving Defense

We will not try to "hard sell" you.

Finally, we will not try to “hard sell” you to hire us. We know choosing an attorney is a big decision and one you must make carefully – not under pressure. Because an effective attorney-client relationship requires a lot of communication and trust, we really only want to represent people who feel comfortable with us and have complete confidence in our abilities. If you don't, then you have the right to an attorney that you do feel would be a better fit.

Thank you for taking the time to look through this web site. Please contact us if you would like to meet and further discuss how we may assist you.
