When You’re Facing Tough Times…
Real Help That Makes A Difference

Standing Firm Against Your Felony Charges

Felony charges don’t just change your life. They can steal large pieces of it. Your choice of attorney is crucial. When the stakes are highest, you need a legal team you can trust to fight for you with a deep well of skill, knowledge and experience. You need a team that knows how to win.

At Platt, Thompson and Buescher, our lead criminal attorney, Craig Platt, is known around the state as a hard-core major crimes trial lawyer. He has been referred to as “the magician” because of his not guilty verdicts that people thought were impossible. He brings decades of criminal defense experience, legendary trial skills and dogged tenacity to every case. We serve northwest Washington from our offices in Coupeville and Seattle, with a particular focus on Whidbey Island and the Naval Station.

No Case Is Too Difficult

We do not shy away from the most challenging criminal cases. When things are looking their worst for you, we know we have to do our best work on your behalf. We regularly take on major felony crimes such as:

  • Murder and manslaughter
  • Drug trafficking and drug crimes
  • Aggravated assault charges
  • Weapon offenses
  • Robbery and burglary
  • Felony domestic violence
  • Sex crimes
  • White collar crimes (such as fraud and embezzlement)

Some of these crimes fall under federal court jurisdiction, especially in the area of white collar offenses or if the offense is committed on the naval base or other federal property. Not all criminal defense attorneys are comfortable handling federal cases. We are. Craig has represented clients in many high-profile cases in the Western District of Washington Federal Court in Seattle, including international drug smuggling conspiracies (e.g. Operation Frozen Timber) and complex embezzlement prosecutions involving Microsoft.

When Everything Is On The Line

We know exactly what you have to lose, which is why we will never stop fighting for your rights. Felonies often carry heavy prison sentences and can have serious consequences for future employment, as well as jeopardizing your gun rights. We also represent many members of the military who fear for their careers. We want you to know that we will be aggressive and fight for you.

We Will Fight For Your Rights

Right now, you do not need more people judging you or criticizing your actions. You need a legal team dedicated to defending your constitutional rights and the presumption of innocence in your case. We build every client’s defense around their particular situation to reach their legal goals. Whether that means negotiating a plea deal or taking your case to the jury, we welcome the challenge.
