Defending Clients in Arlington, WA
Have you been charged with a crime in Arlington, WA? Hi, my name is Schoen Parnell and I’m a Arlington criminal defense attorney with over 20 years of experience defending clients in Snohomish County. Being charged with a crime can be a stressful experience for anyone. I understand your employment and general livelihood are at risk and do not take the matter lightly.
My clients have learned to lean on both my proven strategies, sound judgement and wisdom to know which direction they should take with their case. I personally represent all of my clients who have access to my cell phone number day or night. To ensure only the highest standard in the quality of my criminal defense services I limit my caseload to usually less than 40 open and active clients.
I serve on the WACDL’s (Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers) legislative committee which monitors proposed laws as well as testifies before the Washington state house and senate committees. This allows me to know if changes in the law could affect our defense strategy and to ensure your rights are protected in the state legislature. A combination of experience, wisdom and a solid network of resources gives me the ability to craft defense strategies which have earned me the reputation for fighting hard for my clients.
Time is always a factor in any criminal case, it’s important for you to know what challenges and consequences you could be facing ASAP. Contact my law office and request a free, no strings attached consultation where I will be able to outline some of these challenges as well as propose a strategy for your case.

Arlington Arrest FAQs
Arlington does not have its own city courthouse, instead all arrests made by its police officers are heard in the Marysville’s Municipal Courthouse. However Arlington is home to the Snohomish County District Court’s (SCDC) Cascade Division located at 415 E Burk Avenue. To determine which courthouse your case will be heard in you will need to know which law enforcement agency made the arrest.
If a Washington State Trooper or Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputy issued the citation then your case will be considered a “state case” and will be heard in the SCDC’s Cascade Division. All state or felony cases will be prosecuted by the county prosecutor’s office located in downtown Everett. If you have been charged with a felony offense, your hearing will be held in the Snohomish County Superior court also located in downtown Everett.
However if you were arrested by an Arlington police officer your case will be heard in Marysville’s municipal court and will be prosecuted by a private law firm that multiple Snohomish County cities contract with named Zachor & Thomas.
Hiring a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with both the prosecutor’s offices prosecuting the case and the courthouses where you case will be heard is important to insure you have a solid legal defense strategy. Call me today so we can discuss your case and your legal defense options in detail.
