Violent crime is a fact of life in our society and causes much harm and suffering to victims of crime and their families. But crime victims have rights.

A Leader in Victims' Rights Litigation
A violent crime victim can feel alone and abused, not just by the criminal but by the system. At Leemon + Royer PLLC, we help victims of criminal violence, wrongful death and sexual misconduct obtain compensation and justice for the wrongs done to them. And we give them a chance to get their lives back.
Lawyer Mark Leemon is a leader in victims' rights litigation. In the landmark case Taggart v. State of Washington, he established the principle that the State can be sued when parole officers fail to properly supervise parolees and that failure leads to the commission of criminal acts. That principle can also be applied to other types of government agency negligence as well.
Too many crime victims think that justice is served out only in criminal court. But they may be able to obtain a measure of justice in civil court. Leemon + Royer will work to obtain justice, compensation, fairness and a recognition of the wrongs done.
