Casey Arbenz

PARTNER

Casey got his start in criminal law with the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office where he won his first several jury trials. After working briefly with the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office, he was hired by the Hester Law Group where he worked for ten years – trying numerous misdemeanor, felony and civil trials – before joining Puget Law Group in February 2019 as a Partner.

Casey fights vigorously for his clients. His criminal defense representation ranges from serious felonies such as murder, drug and firearm possession, rape, and the like – as well as white collar crimes involving accusations of complex embezzlement, theft, forgery, perjury and fraud.

Casey has also been recognized for his fervent representation of his civil clients – having a 100% success rate at trial – and he has recovered millions for clients injured via the negligence of others as well as those whose civil rights were violated by police or other government agents.

Casey’s successes have earned him Washington State’s 2012 “Professionalism Award” from the Young Lawyers Section of the Washington State Bar Association, as well as his consistent rating as a “Rising Star.” He was named a “SuperLawyer” in 2019 and 2020 – a distinction bestowed upon just 5% of practicing attorneys in the state.

Casey’s mantra is that “there are no unwinnable cases.” His dedication to handling difficult cases has landed him in jury trials in both state and federal courts as well as in oral arguments before Divisions I and II of the Washington Court of Appeals, the Washington State Supreme Court and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Casey has served as president of the Young Lawyers Section of the Tacoma/Pierce County Bar Association and is a member of the Robert J. Bryan Inns of Court. He served in 2018 and 2019 as a Trustee to the Tacoma/Pierce County Bar association. He is licensed to practice law in all Washington State courts, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals as well as US District Courts in both the Western and Eastern Districts of Washington.

In his spare time Casey can be found chasing his two energetic kids (ages 4 and 5) and being chased by his German Shepherd dog, Maverick. Casey and his wife, Annie (a lawyer at Andrews and Arbenz in Tacoma) participate in Ironman triathlons (swimming, biking and running). Casey accomplished a personal goal in 2019 when his time at Ironman Canada qualified him for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii – which airs every year on NBC.  He and his family flew to Kona for the race – which Casey completed in a time of 10 hours and 52 minutes.

Additionally, Casey and his family enjoy bike rides, long runs, kids’ soccer, tee ball and ballet practices, some fishing, hunting and boating, and lots of good times exploring the Northwest.
