Brian Charles Ashbach

About me

My goal is to provide aggressive, effective defense for my clients. Facing a criminal allegation can be a very stressful experience, and I work hard to achieve great results and communicate effectively with my clients.
I help good people in bad situations. Let me help you. I am a phone call or text away at 360.474.7872. You can also reach me via email at As always, all conversations are confidential.


Since graduating at the top of my law school class half a year early, I have focused on defending clients charged with criminal offenses throughout Western Washington.  I opened my office in Marysville, Washington with no clients, and quickly became one of the most successful attorneys in Snohomish County through hard work, strong legal analysis, and unusually good results.


Unlike some defense attorneys in this area, I have never been, nor sought to be, a prosecutor. My allegiance has always been to the defense of individuals who are being prosecuted by the government.  I will not go easy on the prosecution, or sell you out to make a quick deal with former colleagues. I will fight for you, and you alone.


I routinely go to conferences and seminars to keep abreast on the new trends and tactics being used throughout the country. My results, courtroom presence and dedication to my clients has resulted in prosecutors and judges referring people they care about to me for help.


When I am not working, my hobbies include fishing, boating, playing golf and spending time with my family.
