who I am
My name is Gabriel I. Banfi and I have over 28 years of experience as an Attorney helping many people from all walks of life. I have helped defendants in high profile nationally known cases as well as low-level local misdemeanors- and everything in between. I see the person behind the charges as an individual with rights and can approach your situation with the compassion and dignity that you deserve.
CHARGED WITH A CRIME IN WASHINGTON STATE?
If you’ve been arrested or are being charged with a crime in State court it can be a terrifying and complicated matter. No one wants to be facing charges and appearing in a Washington State criminal court is an intimidating situation. You don’t have to go it alone and you need someone with experience on your side from the beginning.
CHARGED WITH OR INVESTIGATED FOR FEDERAL CRIMINAL CHARGES?
Federal Criminal charges are different than state criminal charges. If you are facing federal charges you need an experienced attorney who understands the differences and can act decisively on your behalf. You may be guilty of a crime but you are still entitled to rights as a citizen.
