Proud to be a Trial Lawyer

In Washington I am a member of a plaintiff association of trial lawyers initially called Washington State Trial Lawyers Association. Several years ago our organization changed its name to Washington State Association for Justice. This is because most of the people we represent do not end up in trial. What we do is:

Help Injured People. We represent injured people. I only take a case if I can get my client more of a recovery after my fees are paid than they would receive without my involvement. I take cases on a contingency fee meaning my client pays me nothing to represent them unless I recover in the case. In the end I help an injured person because without my involvement as a trial lawyer the insurance company will not pay fair value.

We Stand for Justice. In our society when a person is injured through the negligence of another justice is obtained by way of a monetary recovery. As a trial lawyer I have the ability to get a fair recovery by way of a trial and standing for justice.

We Make Society Safer. In our society it often takes a financial message to get wrongdoers to correct their negligent conduct. As a trial lawyer I have the ability to demonstrate the wrong and the damages that flow from the wrong. This in turn leads the jury (the voice of the community) to inform the community we do not accept negligent conduct.

We Lobby for the Common Person. Insurance companies are wealthy powerful corporations with agendas to turn maximum profit for their shareholders. They pay millions of dollars every year in lobbying to place barriers on damages.  The common person who sustains injuries has no lobby to take on legislation proposed by insurance lobbies. National and state trial lawyer associations are the lobbies for the common person. Through my membership in these trial lawyer associations I support efforts to defeat agenda legislation sought by the insurance companies.

Obtain Justice. I only represent people who are injured through the negligence of another.  I stick to the truth. Telling the truth translates to success in negotiations and in trial as we all have a feel for the truth. Juries want the honest injured person to receive a fair recovery. They want to see society safer through their verdict. When the insurance company recognizes this without or with a trial and the case is complete, I have the satisfaction of getting  justice for my client and  benefiting the community.
