When other methods — including negotiation and mediation — either do not or will not work, we use the courts to resolve our clients’ disputes. We pursue claims on behalf of clients; we defend clients who are wrongly pursued. We represent businesses, governments, and non-profits in civil, administrative, and criminal proceedings. Our attorneys have extensive trial and courtroom experience in federal and state courts throughout the state.
We handle appeals before state and federal courts at all levels, including the Washington Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Additionally, we are experienced with appeals to administrative bodies such as the Washington Pollution Control Hearings Board, the Shorelines Hearings Board, and the Growth Management Hearings Board.
