In 2005, Ms. Fields relocated to Washington state where she was appointed as a Senior Deputy (Felony) Prosecuting Attorney in the Whatcom County Prosecutor's Attorney's Office in Bellingham, Washington. As a defense attorney and prosecutor, she has successfully handled hundreds of felony cases including cases of homicide, rape, child sexual molestation, and aggravated assault and thousands of misdemeanor and juvenile cases over the years.
