Criminal Charges in Everett Washington

People arrested for a Criminal Charge in Everett’s city limits by the Everett Police are prosecuted (assuming they get charged) in Everett Municipal Court, which is a new one-story courthouse a block away from the Snohomish County Superior Court.  It is at the corner of Pacific and Wetmore at 3028 Wetmore Avenue, Everett, WA 98201. That court’s website is online at: https://www.everettwa.gov/316/Municipal-Court.

If you are stopped by a Snohomish County Sheriff or a State Trooper (“WSP”) you will be taken directly to the Snohomish County Jail and your DUI charge/case will be filed in the Everett Division of the Snohomish County District Court System (aka “Everett District Court”). It is located at 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett, WA 98201.  See: https://snohomishcountywa.gov/Directory.aspx?DID=75

Arrestees are booked into the Everett City jail or the Snohomish County Jail. If the charge the police are investigating (think you have committed and have arrested you for, etc.) seems to law enforcement to involve alcohol and/or drugs, and if you refuse to provide breath samples or if drugs are suspected, you will be taken to providence Hospital, while still in custody, and your blood will be drawn by a hospital phlebotomist and given to the police as evidence to be processed by the Washington State Toxicology Lab, a process which can sometimes and usually does take many months (some of our cases have blood draws that don’t come back for nearly one year!) because they are severely backlogged due to major budget cuts and other unknown reasons. This poses serious challenges because all sorts of evidence, witnesses, video, audio, street markings, officers’ field notes, public defenders’ notes, clothing, weapons, etc. can and often does disappear in the interim.

Criminal Charges in Everett are investigated by the Everett Police Department, the Washington State Patrol or the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. No matter what charge you are facing, whether felony or misdemeanor (including gross and simple misdemeanors), I can help. I  have defended many hundreds if not thousands of criminal defense clients over the past three decades and am well known in the courts in this area. (But, note that I do not handle murder, appellate or certain sex offense cases.)

In the courtroom, as a defendant, even on a first-time offense, your private criminal defense attorney may well be your only friend.  The first hearing after your arraignment will be a pretrial hearing and will ordinarily be roughly 3-8 weeks after the arraignment, depending upon how congested the court calendars are at the time.  Many things need to be discussed and done to prepare for that hearing. You must have an experienced private attorney at your arraignment hearing and throughout your Everett Municipal Court, Everett District Court or Snohomish County Superior Court prosecution.

I know how the court system works, including what the Everett City Prosecutors, Everett District Court Prosecutors or the Snohomish County Superior Court Prosecutors will likely seek from the court against you, and which private evaluators and treatment professionals to refer you to so we can effectively prepare.  I know when they have not provided all of the discovery and evidence, too, and have private investigators to assist us when needed as well. Also, there are things I will ask you to proactively do, if you are willing, in order to optimize your defense, including obtaining an alcohol/drug evaluation (and in some cases, a mental-health assessment, too), a DV assessment if applicable, as well as performing some voluntary community service hours, if I think it will help.

Of course, if I think your case can be dismissed on pretrial motion practice or won at trial I will not recommend that you do those things, but you must want and agree to go to trial; this is never my decision – it is yours alone, but I will help you reach your decision based upon the strengths and weaknesses of the case and the charge(s) filed against you.

There may be several pretrial hearings while I am negotiating with the assigned prosecutor, or preparing for trial, arguing pretrial motions to suppress evidence or dismiss the case, or both, and gathering all available evidence to support our defense plan.

Hire an experienced private defense attorney now. Go confidently to your Snohomish County Superior Court, Everett District Court or Everett Municipal Court Arraignment or other hearings with an experienced, seasoned criminal defense attorney on your side. I go all-out for my clients and am well-known in these courts.  I work hard to consistently get excellent, often amazing, results for my clients in these three Everett courts. Put my experience on your side rather than using a beginner or a public defender. You have too much to lose for that.
