Wildlife Violations

The Washington State Fish and Wildlife laws and regulations are complex, confusing and often times vague. In 1998, the Washington Legislature attempted to correct these problems by combining the Fish and Wildlife laws, and reorganizing the statutes. In many instances, the 1998 legislation missed the target.

Federal prosecutors enforce the Federal Lacey Act of 1900. The Lacey Act is aimed at hunters who allegedly commit interstate hunting violations, or who commit a violation of state law or regulations in a national forest. Lacey Act violations are often complex and require an experienced attorney familiar with federal court to challenge the prosecution’s case. Hormel Law has the experience and knowledge necessary to challenge the federal government.

Both state and federal law enforcement officers are aggressive. Hormel Law has represented many individuals throughout the State of Washington and federal court who were charged with both felony and misdemeanor offenses under the Fish and Wildlife laws and regulations, and under the Federal Lacey Act.
