Edmonds Criminal Defense Law Firm

Helping the Criminally Accused in Snohomish County

If you were charged with - or have reason to believe that you may soon be charged with - any form of criminal activity in Edmonds, Snohomish County or King County, you should know that it is never too early to talk to a lawyer who can protect your interests and advise you as to the best course of action to take.

I am John F. Segelbaum and I have been serving residents of Washington State in the field of criminal law for more than 35 years. I understand the laws in this state and I am ready to put my extensive experience in this field to work in defense of your rights and privileges.

Practice Areas

If are being investigated or have been charged with a crime, you need a tough Snohomish County criminal defense lawyer on your side. I am prepared to deliver the high level of advocacy necessary to ensure that your rights and interests are thoroughly protected. I value my reputation as an ethical attorney who offers excellent, committed service to each of his clients. No matter how challenging your case may seem, I have the preparation and education necessary to defend you effectively. Among other types of cases, I can help you in the following areas:

Assault & Domestic Violence
Being accused of a violent crime is no trivial matter. A conviction could leave a permanent mark on your criminal record, potentially limiting your ability to gain employment or to attend the school of your choice. Too often, these types of accusations are merely trumped-up charges or even an unethical attempt by a relative to gain some sort of advantage in a family law case. Call me for the aggressive, effective defense you need to get your life back if you have been charged with a violent crime such as assault or domestic violence.

Drug Crimes
For every charge, there is a defense. If you have been accused of crimes involving a federally controlled substance such as LSD, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, or ecstasy, contact my office right away in order to discuss the best way to handle your case and avoid the serious consequences of a drug crime conviction. I am familiar with these types of cases and am prepared to pursue the justice you deserve. In some cases, I may be able to seek alternative forms of treatment as opposed to criminal incarceration.

Theft Crimes
From shoplifting to robbery, offenses that fall under the category of theft crimes carry a broad range of potential consequences. Not only will these penalties vary by the type of crime committed but also by additional factors such as how much was stolen and whether assault or threats of violence were involved. Talk to a Snohomish County theft crime lawyer about your options and your rights if you have been accused of a theft crime in Washington State.

Traffic Offenses
Too many people make the mistake of treating traffic offenses as trivial matters. Unfortunately, these types of offenses can have a big impact on your wallet and could impact your freedom as well if you are forced to give up your license because of accumulated tickets. Some traffic offenses, such as hit and run or driving with a revoked driver's license, have even more potential to detrimentally affect your life and liberty. Call me to talk about your rights and options if you received a traffic ticket.

Probation Violations
Being accused of a probation violation could mean a big setback on your road to freedom and to resuming a normal life after a criminal conviction. I am prepared to help you avoid the intense repercussions of a probation violation. Whether you were accused of using drugs and / or alcohol, missing a mandatory treatment session, committing a crime, or some other prohibited activity while on probation, contact my office today for the counsel and committed representation necessary to avoid additional penalties.

Driving Under the Influence
Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs and / or alcohol is strictly prohibited in Washington. If you were arrested and charged with DUI, you could face consequences in two different settings - criminal court and an administrative hearing regarding the future of your driving privileges. Both could seriously impact your freedom. I have many years of experience as a DUI defense lawyer and I am ready to offer the tough and determined advocacy you need to stay on the road and keep your liberty and your reputation intact.
