We at JRC Practice know that finding the right attorney to represent you is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free consultations to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget.
Our founding attorney, Jesse Corkern, spent several years as a deputy prosecuting attorney at the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney's office before entering private practice. Today, he provides a strong defense against all types of charges. He has earned the respect of clients and opposing counsel alike.
When he is not in the courtroom or advising clients, Mr. Corkern enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He is also an adventurous outdoorsman, hiker, backpacker and mountain climber who has conquered both Mount Rainier and Mount Kilimanjaro.
Mr. Corkern brings the same energy, determination and courage to his law practice as he does to scaling the most imposing heights.
