Defending Clients Charged With Rape

The firm of Steven W. Thayer, P.S., assists clients who have been charged with:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape (child rape)
  • Date rape
  • Domestic sexual assault

Most potential clients assume that most lawyers who provide criminal defense are equally competent to defend any given category of crime charged. Unfortunately, that is not the case. When hiring an attorney to defend a serious charge such as rape, where the consequences of a conviction can be catastrophic on so many levels, the experience, commitment and demonstrated ability of defense counsel is absolutely critical to ensure fairness and the best possible results in the adversarial process.

Steve Thayer has a pre-eminent reputation in Southwest Washington for defending rape cases. He has been invited to speak at many seminars on the subject in Oregon and Washington over the years as a result of his demonstrated ability to win these cases.

A Proactive Legal Defense

Rape cases must be proactively defended, and require a far more thorough investigation than that usually conducted by the government prior to filing charges. They also involve factual and legal issues that are often complex and highly specialized. Finally, the potential penalties and sentencing consequences of a rape conviction can be devastating. Consequently, nothing less than the best defense available is required to ensure the best possible results in these cases.

If you have been charged with sexual assault in the state of Washington, make sure you go to court equipped with experienced and proven legal support. At the firm of Steven W. Thayer, P.S., we'll apply our four decades of successful experience to your case. Contact us today to schedule a consultation. Call 360-450-0872.
