About Criminal Law
Criminal law is a legal system that focuses on punishing and punishing criminal offenders. This system specifies criminal offenses and the associated penalties through legislative statutes.
At The Cowlitz Law Group, our criminal lawyers are knowledgeable in the various types of crimes and the legal procedures involved. Crimes can be broadly categorized into five main groups: crimes against people, crimes against property, inchoate crimes, statutory crimes, and financial crimes.

Crimes Against a Person
Crimes against persons are a serious matter, as they involve physical or emotional harm to an individual. At The Cowlitz Law Group, we understand the gravity of these cases and are dedicated to protecting the rights and well-being of the victims.
Crimes against persons can be classified into two main categories: homicides and violent crimes.
Homicides refer to the death of an individual caused by the physical harm inflicted by another person, including first-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and vehicular homicide.
Violent crimes include a range of actions that cause harm to another individual, such as arson, battery and assault, child abuse, domestic violence, kidnapping, and rape.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of a crime against a person, it’s important to seek legal assistance. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers are here to help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.

These crimes can cause harm to the owner, but their primary effect is the deprivation of the use or enjoyment of the property.

Inchoate crimes refer to crimes that were initiated but not completed or actions that assist in the commission of another crime. These types of crimes are recognized by the legal system as criminal acts, even though the crime itself may not have been fully committed.

It is important to note that a person must have more than just a desire or hope to commit a crime in order to be charged with an inchoate crime. Our attorneys will thoroughly examine the facts of your case and work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf.

What you do and say after being detained for any criminal violation will affect how your case turns out. Read your Miranda rights carefully. Don’t speak. Make use of your legal right to counsel. Even though you may be presumed innocent until proven guilty, the police and the prosecution won’t treat you that way. What’s your best chance of avoiding a conviction and the severe consequences that could result from it? It is involving a skilled attorney as early as possible in the process.
