About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

Helping people has been my primary motivation for practicing law. Which is why my practice is focused on those areas where people truly need an advocate on their side: Bankruptcy, Traffic, Criminal, and DUI Defense.

Providing excellent service and getting results requires hard work, an attention to detail, and preparation. Other attorneys talk, but I am focused on getting favorable outcomes for my clients. I strive to obtain the right result for each client no difficult it may be.I take pride in serving my clients and community well. I grew here in Port Townsend, attended Port Townsend High School and graduated in 1999. I chose to practice law here because this is the area I love and the people I care about.

I have an aggressive and innovative approach to the interpretation of the traffic code, the criminal and DUI laws in Washington State, and Federal bankruptcy law. I have successfully represented and defended my clients throughout Western Washington, including Jefferson, Clallam , and Kitsap County.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, our daughter, and our French Bulldog. I’m also enjoy giving back to the community through the Port Townsend Rotary Club and coaching the PTHS Mock Trial Team. I’m a huge fan of Seattle sports, especially the Seahawks!

Best attorney I've ever been to trial with
Joe wins cases... He is a shark in the courtroom. He wins because he has three gifts that other attorneys wish they had; CONFIDENCE, Joe is willing to go to trial and fight for his clients. He doesn't back down in trial, or in settlements, because Joe has a long history of winning really tough cases. INTELLIGENCE, Joe is on top of the every change and technicality in the Law, he wins many cases before they even go to trial because he is willing to put in the hard work and do the pre trial motions and hearings that many attorneys are unwilling to do. CHARISMA, Joe is the cool kid in the court room. He draws everyone in when he speaks. The jury wants be on Joe's team.. and that means they are on your team. Joe won my case, he saved me from having to do 10 years in prison for a crime I wasn't guilty of. I couldn't have had a better attorney fighting for me.

Speeding ticket dismissed!
He handled a speeding ticket in Jefferson County for my daughter and it was dismissed with her presence required in court. She did not have to miss a day at college and it was money well spent!

Traffic Tickets
Schodowski Law has represented me in several traffic infractions, including: traffic cameras, improper equipment (snow tires), (w)reckless driving, and speeding and Joe was able to have all of them reduced if not dismissed.

Great results
I found myself unprepared as the executor of an estate. Joe guided me through the paperwork, and made me aware of my rights. I was relieved after I put this in his hands, as he advocated for me with county authorities, etc. Joe always addressed my concerns promptly, and was available when I needed to speak to him. This was a very difficult time for me, made much easier by this attorney.
