Huff has extensive experience at all levels of criminal defense – from misdemeanor cases including DUI and Shoplifting, to major felonies involving Theft, Drug Violations (VUCSA), and Assault.

In the criminal justice system, the prosecutor represents the interests of the government. If you have been charged with a crime, the prosecutor’s job is to ask the judge to impose jail time and/or money fines on you. The prosecutor can also ask the judge to have you enter a treatment program, pay restitution, or order other post-conviction conditions.

In Washington State, a simple misdemeanor (such as Negligent Driving) has a maximum penalty of 90 days incarceration and a $ 1,000.00 fine. A gross misdemeanor is any crime (such as Domestic Violence) which is punishable by up to 364 days in jail, and a $ 5,000.00 fine. Felonies are classified in three categories – a Class A Felony carries a top penalty of life in prison, and a fine of fifty thousand dollars; a Class B Felony has a maximum sentence of ten years imprisonment, and a twenty thousand dollar fine; the most a court can impose for a Class C Felony is ten years in prison, and a ten thousand dollar fine.

Federal Court incarceration is determined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which calculates the prison term based on the seriousness of the crime, the defendant’s criminal history, and other factors and characteristics relating to the defendant. The federal government aggressively prosecutes crimes such as drug manufacture/distribution, human trafficking, and so-called White Collar offenses. The Law Office of Robert S. Huff has effectively represented many individuals accused of crimes in the federal court system in the Western District of Washington.

Huff will also coordinate with ICE officers, whenever possible, to obtain your release from detention.

Family Law

No one enters into a marriage or family relationship with the expectation that it will someday end. However, the reality of family life is that a large percentage of these relationships fail, and therefore often need the intervention of the legal system to determine financial, property, and child custody issues. The Law Office of Robert S. Huff has the knowledge and experience to help you with these difficult family issues.

Maintaining a relationship between both parents and their children is one of the most important goals of the family court system. A common term used in divorce cases is ‘child custody’, however in Washington State the law prefers an arrangement called a ‘Parenting Plan’. A Parenting Plan determines where and when the children will be with each parent, but it does not assign ‘custody’ of any child to either parent. The legal standard for deciding child visitation is called the ‘best interests’ of the children.

In a child custody case, it is important to establish a record of each parent’s relationship with the children. A parent can be involved with a child on several levels - including daily care, educational support, love and affection, and other family member’s interaction (grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc.). The Law Office of Robert S. Huff suggests that our clients maintain a calendar or diary of events related to the welfare of the children.

It is preferable that family law cases conclude through agreement, especially because this way of resolving disputes will minimize the long-term negative impact on the children. Agreements can benefit all parties involved with the case in various other ways, in terms of the financial, property, and other aspects of finalizing the divorce. However, if an agreement is not forthcoming, the Law Office of Robert S. Huff is prepared to litigate your case to achieve a just resolution.
