“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” There are countless facts that give rise to lawsuits. Business transactions fail, a family member overreaches in a probate, a customer refuses to pay, a neighbor encroaches, an employee is fired. Our litigation lawyers have seen the range of cases, from large class actions in federal court, to jury trials for an injured driver in superior court. We have appeared as advocates in state and federal courts including the superior courts in all of Western Washington, federal court, bankruptcy court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Sometimes a case is won with a summary judgment motion, sometimes during cross examination, and sometimes on appeal. We focus on efficient, cost effective, and practical solutions to your litigation needs, and we are skilled at being your advocate.
