Deputy Prosecuting Attorney - Criminal Division

Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney


The Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is seeking to hire up to three Criminal Division Deputy Prosecutors.  We welcome applications from both qualified entry-level attorneys and from experienced criminal law practitioners as we are open to filling positions at the DPA I, II, and III Levels.  This posting will remain open until all positions are filled.

The Criminal Division is responsible for prosecuting all adult and juvenile felonies that occur within Snohomish County, as well as misdemeanor and gross misdemeanors that occur in unincorporated areas.

The Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office is committed to the responsible exercise of its prosecutorial discretion in ways that best serve our diverse community.  We do so by supporting and advocating for crime victims and their families, holding individuals who harm others and commit crimes accountable, and preserving and protecting the rights of the accused.  It is our mission to pursue justice fairly, firmly, and ethically, and to help create safe and livable communities for everyone while maintaining the trust and respect of those we humbly serve.  We are also dedicated to pursuing innovative alternatives to traditional prosecution that include embedded therapeutic programs designed to address the root causes of criminal behavior. As an office, we highly value hard work, teamwork, and a healthy work-life balance.

Snohomish County is in northwest Washington State between the Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains.  Just 15 miles north of Seattle, the county is rich in scenery with abundant opportunities for outdoor activities and has a thriving economy.  It is a great place to live, work, raise a family, and play.
