John F. Segelbaum's Philosophy

You should be aware of a few specific facts when it comes to the criminal justice system. First, the prosecutor you face is very well equipped and funded with a wide range of resources at his or her disposal. Second, representing yourself is a grave mistake that has cost many men and women serious - and avoidable - consequences. Third, your prosecutor handles hundreds of cases and is extremely experienced. Finally, as a former senior deputy prosecutor and current Snohomish County criminal defense lawyer who has been practicing law for 38 years, I am prepared to use all of this information to your benefit.

Together, We Can Win!

The reality is that your prosecutor has more cases to handle than I do because I limit my caseload to only a few dozen at any given time, whereas the prosecutor may be assigned to hundreds of cases. This means that I am able to concentrate much more focus and energy on your defense than the other side can give to your prosecution. In the United States, you are considered innocent until proven guilty. I am ready to fight tenaciously for the justice you deserve. I can study every aspect of your case so that when we go to court, you will feel as though you are the only client I have. The other side has experts working for them, but I can enlist experts too. If necessary, I can gather a team of former police officers, former state toxicologists, and other experts who can analyze the prosecution's evidence against you.

John, B just called to let me know how everything worked out. Thanks for all your help. He commented to me that, considering I basically picked your name out of the phone book, we 'lucked out'. He was impressed with how you handled the prosecutor and the court and appreciated how you dealt with him personally. - D.S.
