CRIMINAL LAW SEATTLE
One source of knowledge that did not occur to me until I was actually in a lawyers office was reading up in books, both printed and e books regarding criminal law. I think I had always assumed that any book on the topic would beyond my understanding and full of legal jargon that would make the book unreadable. Fortunately for us, there are a fairly large number of criminal law books that are very clear and very understandable.
Personally I found an book on my kindle was the easiest way for me to take the dive into understanding criminal law in Seattle. I was pleased that I was able to easily find books on the topic that were reasonably priced and also provided me the ability to read a little of it before purchasing to ensure that it was a good fit for me. When trying to understand criminal law in Seattle or any city for that matter, reading a book either printed or electronic is probably a great way to begin. In summary I was very surprised at how much I did not know and I felt much more knowledgeable on criminal law by the end of the first book I read.
