casey-arbenz(Tacoma, WA, January 20, 2022) — Puget Law Group, a Seattle area Criminal/DUI defense and Personal Injury law firm, announces that Assistant Managing Partner Casey Arbenz has been named as Managing Partner.

Casey and I have always worked together in leading PLG; these changes allow us to continue this, while taking advantage of Casey’s considerable personnel management skills and ability to get the best out of each member of our team. I am excited for the opportunities these changes provide and I couldn’t be more confident with Casey at the helm for this team.”
