Practice

Areas of Practice

Class Actions

A class action is a useful device that permits many individuals to sue a single defendant for a common wrong. Class actions typically arise where a large Defendent, or group of Defendants, has systematically and uniformaly engaged in a single unfair and deceptive business practice.

Consumer Protection

Consumer protection statutes are used to protect individual consumer rights. These statutes provide potential remedies to individual injured by conduct ranging from bad faith by insurers to deceptive marketing by corporations to the manufacture and sale of defective products.

Sexual Harassment

Under Federal and Washington Law, it is illegal to harass a person, including current employee or applicant, because of that person’s sex. Harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

Appeals

We have extensive experience successfully briefing and arguing appeals in state and federal courts. The knowledge and skills we have gleaned through our trial practice in areas including class actions and consumer protection law, give us the necessary background and expertise to efficiently and effectively advocate for clients in appellate courts.

Elder Abuse

Unfortunately, many incidents of nursing home neglect and elder abuse go undetected or unreported.  It has become an epidemic, where our aging family members are being abused, mistreated, or neglected.

Sexual Misconduct

Sexual misconduct is a broad term encompassing any unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that is committed without consent or by force, intimidation, coercion, or manipulation.

Lemon Law & Auto Defects

If you have recently purchased a new or used car, truck, RV, or travel trailer, and are having non-stop mechanical problems, you have have a claim under Washington State lemon laws or the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

Anti-Harassment Orders

There are a variety of orders of protection available to victims of harassment. A no-contact order is obtained in connection with criminal charges that are pending. An anti-harassment order is obtained by a victim of harassment.

Civil Rights Violations

Civil rights law generally involves the protections and liberties enjoyed by the American people. Such rights are designed to ensure that people are treated equally and without respect to their ethnicity, gender, or other such attributes.

Wrongful Death

The sudden and wrongful death of a loved one can be life-changing. While legal action will do little to truly address your loss, a wrongful death claim may be used as a tool to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions and to address any expenses you’ve accrued as a result.

Employment Law

We can assist individuals and classes of people with claims arising from: Workplace discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Wage Theft violations, Wrongful termination or discharge, Whistleblower claims, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations.

Wage Theft

Wage theft is the denial of wages or employee benefits that are rightfully owed to an employee. Wage theft can be conducted through various means such as: failure to pay overtime, minimum wage violations, employee misclassification, illegal deductions in pay, working off the clock, or not being paid at all.
