About the Herschensohn Law team
Attorney Zach Herschensohn established Herschensohn Law in Kent, Washington, with one goal in mind—to provide attentive, aggressive, and effective representation to his clients and their families.
As a dedicated personal injury lawyer, Zach Herschensohn has won millions in settlements and verdicts for injury victims throughout Kent and the Seattle metro area.
If you’ve been injured because of someone else’s carelessness, Zach is ready to offer straightforward legal advice, provide personalized representation, and fight tooth and nail to get you the highest payout possible.
Since 2003, Zach Herschensohn has been admitted to practice law in the State of Washington and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.
Since that time, he has been engaged full-time in a plaintiff’s personal injury practice and during that time has initiated hundreds of lawsuits on behalf of clients both in federal and state courts. In his career, he has represented seamen and railroad workers, who have become injured in the course of their employment, construction workers, factory workers, mechanics, and other workers, who have been injured or exposed to harmful substances on their jobsites, victims of negligence, car crash victims, premises liability victims, victims of medical and legal negligence, victims of sexual assault and victims of harmful medical drugs and devices.
Zach Herschensohn is extremely aggressive. He is also a prolific litigator. In Washington state, Zach Herschensohn has filed lawsuits in King County, Skagit County, Pierce County, Whatcom County, Thurston County, Spokane County, Clark County, Clallam County, Cowlitz County, as well as in the Western District of Washington. He has also represented plaintiffs in Washington Appellate Courts, where he has been counsel of record on 10 published appellate opinions, including most recently Gibson v. American Construction, 200 Wn.App. 600, 402 P.3d 928 (2017). Zachary Herschensohn files lots of lawsuits.
For more than 18 years, there has been no significant period of time when he has not been counsel of record and actively litigating cases on behalf of clients. He believes that whether you want to litigate, or even if you want a fair settlement, you must hire an attorney who fights for their clients. That isn’t happening unless your attorney is filing lots of lawsuits and is in court regularly fighting for his clients. Maritime employers, self-insured corporations, and insurance and casualty companies know who fights and they know who rolls over. If you want an attorney who puts out 100% effort—if you want strength and unflinching perseverance and tenacity, Zach Herschensohn is that lawyer.

Ann-Marie Evans has successfully handled hundreds of personal injury cases. She has arbitrated well over 100 cases and mediated countless others. She is a fierce advocate who fights for justice on behalf of her clients. She has litigated against all of the major insurance carriers as well as against the Department of Corrections and corporate entities. She believes that each client deserves to have their story told and dedicates herself to making sure her clients have a voice and are heard. She will not allow the insurance industry to silence her or her clients.
Prior to becoming a personal injury attorney, Ann-Marie worked as an advocate for victims of crime. She strongly believes in access to justice and served on the Attorney General’s Domestic Violence Advisory Group. She testified in favor of a bill that extended additional protections to victims of crime. She has testified as an expert in domestic violence.
Ann-Marie worked for a mid-size personal injury firm and owned her own firm for several years before migrating to an of counsel and marketing position with Herschensohn Law.
In her spare time, Ann-Marie enjoys spending time with her friends and large family. She likes to garden, cook, read, and take day trips. She has a keen sense of humor and views life as a gift.
Litigation paralegal Stacy Schumacher has worked alongside Attorney Zach Herschensohn for over a decade. Originally from the Midwest, Stacy first moved to Washington state in 1998 and has lived in both Pierce and Snohomish Counties. She returned to her home state for a few years but was able to continue her working relationship with Zach during that time.
In 2014, she returned to call Washington her home and lives in Snohomish County with her husband and two of her three children. Stacy and her daughter board their two horses nearby. Stacy enjoys road trips, camping, and trail riding in her leisure time. Just kidding—she doesn’t really know what leisure time is.
Bethany Bishop has been a paralegal for the firm since April of 2021 when she and attorney Ann-Marie Evans of AME Law joined the Herschensohn Law team. She previously worked alongside Ann-Marie since 2019, when she graduated with honors from Tacoma Community College’s esteemed ABA-approved Paralegal Studies program. Bethany works out of our Graham, Washington office and handles all aspects of cases from start to finish.
“I decided to join the personal injury law field largely because I have been through the process of injury-causing car accidents as a client myself. I’ve seen first-hand how poorly insurance companies can treat an injured person and want to make sure that our clients have a true advocate for their accident cases and are treated—and compensated—fairly by insurance companies. No one should ever be injured through no fault of their own and have to worry about having their bills paid while trying to recover from those injuries. I want to help make sure that isn’t the case for our clients.”
Outside of the office, Bethany enjoys camping, reading, cooking, and spending time with her family and two dogs. She’s looking forward to continuing to work with the Herschensohn Law team for a long time.
Kris Carr is our pre-litigation paralegal. Kris joined our team in 2020 and brings 28 years of legal experience. Kris has worked most of her career in personal injury, wrongful death, and worker’s compensation. Kris moved from Iowa to Spokane, Washington in 2019. Her hobbies are running and golfing. She also enjoys watching and attending any sporting event, especially football and baseball.
