Respect, Compassion, and Advocacy
Snohomish County Public Defender Association
Located in Everett just north of Seattle, SCPDA provides effective and competent legal representation to people who are facing loss of liberty under criminal or civil laws and unable to afford an attorney.
A Note from the Director
For more than 46 years, the public defenders at SCPDA have been dedicated to evolving advocacy skills to help create a “justice system” that is truly just and equitable and not one that simply perpetuates systemic disparities. We pride ourselves in recruiting creative people who want to make a positive difference, lifelong learners who want to continue to hone their skills, and innovators who seek to modernize approaches to serve our clients to the best of our abilities.
