Law Firm Overview

With the increasing use of background checks by everyone from employers to insurance companies, a criminal conviction can have consequences that go far beyond fines and jail time. Almost any criminal conviction can keep you from getting a job with the government, a school, or as a health care worker.

With the increasing use of background checks by everyone from employers to insurance companies, a criminal conviction can have consequences that go far beyond fines and jail time. Almost any criminal conviction can keep you from getting a job with the government, a school, or as a health care worker. A felony conviction can make it hard to get any job and can affect your ability to obtain a new residence. It can also mean that you will pay higher rates on everything from car insurance to home mortgages.

My name is Christian Phelps, a criminal defense lawyer in Spokane, Washington. I represent defendants in criminal cases throughout Washington and Oregon. When your freedom and future are at stake, you need a lawyer who is willing to go the extra mile to investigate every possible defense and force the prosecution to prove its case.

I am one of the few attorneys in Spokane who has dedicated my practice exclusively to criminal defense. I am experienced in both state and federal court and have litigated a wide range of criminal cases; from DUI's to first-degree murder.

If you are facing criminal charges, you should NOT talk to anyone, even friends or family members, before you consult an attorney. This is especially true if you are in jail. Many defendants end up convicting themselves because they talked to someone else before they talked to an attorney and those statements were used against them. I offer a free initial consultation to advise you of your rights and the consequences of a conviction.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
