Practice Areas

During my 12 years with the King County Prosecutor’s Office I handled and tried almost every type of crime imaginable. I spent time in District Court trying misdemeanor cases like Theft and DUI, as well as Juvenile Court where I handled all kinds of felony charges committed by individuals under the age of 18. It was the time that I spent in District and Juvenile court that prepared me for what would become the practice areas that I spent he majority of my legal career:


  • Sex Crimes
    Sexual assault and child abuse cases involve the most legally and factually complex charges that can be brought against someone. If you have been charged with a sexual assault or child abuse offense you need an attorney who has extensive experience handling these types of cases.

  • Domestic Violence
    "Domestic Violence" historically applies to romantic relationships, but over time it has expanded, now applying to almost any two people who have a preexisting relationship. As a defense attorney I rely on my experience to formulate successsful defense strategies for those charged in DV cases.

    Charges involving allegations of violence are some of the most aggressively pursued cases by law enforcement and prosecutors alike. If you have been charged with a violent crime you need representation experienced in dealing with the issues presented by cases involving allegations of violence.

About Wagnild Law

Zach Wagnild, Attorney

After spending the first 12 years of my legal career as a prosecutor, I opened my own practice in order to provide outstanding support and legal advocacy to those who are facing criminal charges. I purposefully keep a low caseload so that I can give each case my personal attention and so I have sufficient time to meet with my clients, discuss their options, and approach their case in the manner that is the most beneficial to them and their needs.
