One of the most stressful things that can happen to anyone is finding themselves charged with a crime. What are you supposed to do next? Will you have to spend time in jail? Who can help you through this traumatic and complicated time in your life?
I can help–and I am here to assist you in any way possible.
I am Schoen Parnell, a Snohomish criminal defense attorney who has been representing defendants for over 20 years. With a stellar track record of helping my clients hear “not guilty” verdicts in hundreds of criminal cases as diverse as domestic violence and felony assault to weapons charges and vehicular manslaughter, I offer the expert assistance of a lawyer who knows exactly what to do to defend you and your rights.
As a seasoned criminal defense attorney fighting for my clients’ rights in Snohomish County, I have seen the difference it makes when someone is represented by a public defender. Although a public defender is definitely preferable than having no representation at all, these defenders are underpaid, overworked and burdened by heavy caseloads. Consequently, they cannot give your case the minute-by-minute attention it needs so that you benefit from the the best outcome possible.
In addition, all clients have direct access to me at all times. When you call my number,I will answer the phone, not a secretary, paralegal or office temp. I also make a point of limiting my case load so I can give your case all the attention, time and thought it deserves. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will be there when you need me and promise to defend you aggressively in court, using in-depth knowledge of the Snohomish County court system and past experiences.
