Paul G. Sewell


Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Paul grew up in Bothell, Washington where he graduated from Inglemoor High School. He attended college at Columbia University, in New York where he studied political theory and philosophy. At Columbia, Paul was a four-year varsity letter winner on the University's Division 1 wrestling program. After college, Paul returned home to attend the Seattle University School of Law. There, he won the law school's in-house appellate competition and represented Seattle University at a national Moot Court competition in New York. 

After law school, Paul joined the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, where he represented the public on criminal matters as a Senior Deputy Prosecutor. During this time, Paul took nearly 100 cases to verdict, many of which were high-profile and involved working with those from some of our society's most marginalized groups. After years of prosecuting gang crime as well as crimes involving children and vulnerable victims, Paul's last years as a prosecutor were spent investigating and prosecuting large-scale criminal activity ranging from state-wide prostitution rings to securities fraud to workplace homicides. 

Paul lives in Woodinville with his wife and their two wonderful children. In his free time, Paul can be found writing or trying to wrangle his kids.
