Criminal Defense Serving the Greater Seattle Area & Beyond

Seattle Criminal Law Lawyer

Thorough Experience in All Types of Felony Allegations

Thorley Defense Law was founded on the principle that every case is unique and should be treated individually. This is particularly important in felony matters where a conviction can result in a long period of incarceration. Thorley Defense Law in Seattle handles a complete array of these cases including those involving charges of:


If you are charged with murder or manslaughter, it's vital to retain a Seattle criminal defense lawyer who has real-world experience defending clients against these charges. Rebecca Thorley has defended clients in homicide cases and works tirelessly to counter the claims against them.


First-degree custodial interference and kidnapping are felonies in Washington, so these cases must be taken seriously even if the allegation stems from a misunderstanding or communication failure.

Drug Crimes

People should not be misled into thinking that the legalization of marijuana for personal use in Washington means that other drug laws have been relaxed. Significant penalties still exist in cases involving the possession and sale of other substances and unauthorized pot dispensation.

Sexual Offenses

Prosecutions alleging rape and other types of sexual misconduct present challenges that demand a skillful, experienced attorney. When someone's future hinges on a question of consent or evidence, Thorley Defense Law knows how to unearth the truth.

From the moment you're arrested, the authorities start building a case against you. Thorley Defense Law provides a free consultation for criminal defense matters, so you can obtain immediate legal support. Thorley Defense Law predominantly services Snohomish, King, Skagit, and Pierce counties, but will travel to other areas of Washington State to provide a skilled defense.

Knowledgeable Litigation to Assist with Misdemeanor Charges

Though misdemeanors do not carry prison sentences of several years, a misdemeanor conviction can follow you for a long time and trigger a jail term of up to one year. In cases arising from assaults, domestic violence, petty theft, and other charges, Thorley Defense Law aggressively counters the allegations against clients to avoid unfair punishment. If you are found guilty of a misdemeanor, in addition to possibly facing incarceration, you may face fines up to $5,000 and will have a criminal record with potentially long-lasting consequences.

Dedicated Advocate for Robbery, Burglary & Shoplifting Cases

Whether it's a robbery charge involving the threat of deadly force or a shoplifting case, strong defense counsel is necessary to protect a defendant's fundamental rights. In these cases, Thorley Defense Law looks beyond the police reports to gain a detailed perspective on theft allegations and related counts, such as burglary. A first-degree robbery conviction carries a sentence that can be as long as a lifetime prison term, but no matter what the accusation entails, this firm will give you the strong advice and advocacy you're entitled to.

Skillful in Defending Individuals Accused of Driving Offenses

A citation for speeding, using an electronic device behind the wheel, or reckless driving can restrict your ability to drive, can cost you in fines and higher insurance costs, and could even lead to jail time. Don't hesitate to assert your rights if you've been ticketed for a motor vehicle offense. We evaluate the circumstances and will determine the best way to reduce the negative impact of a traffic stop.
