History of Successful Case Results

Million Dollar Settlements

One of our head attorneys, Ronald Ward has been named as one of the Top 40 Personal Injury Lawyers in the state of Washington. Demonstrating his overall passion for recovering fair results, he has achieved millions of dollars for past clients. One case in particular, he obtained a $6.45 million settlement for a family that had been the victim of a horrible car accident. Another case involving wrongful death from the use of a defective drug, Attorney Ward successfully attained $1.32 million in compensation for the surviving spouse. Leading the way in legal history, he was given the title of president of the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) in 2004 and was the first African-American to do so since the association began 114 years prior.

In addition our firm's other partner and accomplished lawyer, J.D. Smith, has extensive experience working as an insurance adjuster, giving him the upper hand when negotiating positive settlements against manipulative insurance providers. He has been given a 10.0 Super Avvo Rating, which is an honor only bestowed through positive peer endorsements and client reviews.
