Alexandrea (Alex) Schodowski

Alex (Parman) Schodowski - Attorney at LawA Kentucky native, Alex attended undergraduate at Morehead State University where she graduated with honors with a degree in speech communication and government. After working for several years as a paralegal in the Jessamine County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office, she attended Law School at Western Michigan University where she met her future husband and law partner, Joe.

As a felony deputy, she prosecuted sex crimes and crimes of domestic violence and received special training in Domestic Violence, Child Abuse and Neglect, and Sexual Assault and Trauma.

As a former prosecutor, Alex brings a unique approach and perspective to both personal injury and criminal defense cases. Her dedication to helping those injured in an accident or accused of a crime is matched only by her skills in the courtroom.

Outside of practicing law, Alex enjoys spending time with her husband and law partner, Joe, their daughter, Annabelle, and their two dogs, Ollie and Pippa.

Joe Schodowski

Helping people has been my primary motivation for practicing law. I grew up on the Peninsula, in Port Townsend, so I am a local who wants to help my community. I attended the local schools in Port Townsend and graduated from PT High School in 1999. I chose to practice law here because this is the area I love and the people I care about. That’s why my practice is focused on those areas where people truly need an advocate on their side: Traffic Tickets, Criminal Defense, DUI Defense, and Personal Injury.

I take pride in serving my clients and community well.

The goal of Schodowski Law, PLLC is to provide excellent customer service and results. This requires hard work, attention to detail, and preparation – and that is what Schodowski Law, PLLC does for you. We are focused on getting favorable outcomes for our clients and we strive to obtain the best result for each client.

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

Outside of work, I am a family man. You can find me enjoying our beautiful Peninsula scenery with my wife, 2 year-old daughter and our two dogs. I also enjoy giving back to the community through the Port Townsend Rotary Club, the local Bar Association and my work with the PTHS Mock Trial Team. Of course, I’m also a huge fan of Seattle sports – GO HAWKS!
