At DawsonBrownPS, we regularly represent people who have suffered catastrophic personal loss, and seriously disabling injuries. We also protect our clients against the unfair claims practices of insurance companies.
Dealing with the loss of a spouse or child, or a severe injury that threatens one’s independence and livelihood is extraordinarily difficult. The injured person and their family may face overwhelming physical, financial, and emotional challenges. We have been there before and can help bring clarity to a chaotic and confusing situation. We can tell you what your legal options are, and help you make the difficult decisions which may affect you and your family for a lifetime.
We take pride in our commitment to protect our clients’ rights and obtain the settlement or verdict they deserve. Regardless of whether our clients have suffered through the negligence of corporations or individuals, the incompetence of doctors or lawyers, the indifference of government, or the overreaching of the rich and powerful, we have the resources, experience, and personal commitment to see that our clients are fairly compensated to the full extent of the law.
We believe that those whose carelessness hurts others must take responsibility for the harm they cause. The sad fact, however, is that often such individuals and corporations will vigorously seek to avoid paying for their misdeeds, many times with the assistance and encouragement of their insurance company. The complexity of insurance claims, and the way insurance companies defend these claims, makes it virtually impossible for ordinary people to protect their interests without skilled professional help. DawsonBrownPS has a long history of successful litigation against insurance companies.
We recommend that people find out their rights before making decisions on their case that they may later regret. At DawsonBrownPS you can meet with an attorney at no cost or obligation. After meeting with a attorney you will be better prepared to make important legal decisions. You will better understand what the insurance company will do to protect itself from your claim. And you will have confidence you are making the right decisions.
We are trial lawyers. The attorneys in our firm are experienced, ready, and able to go to trial to secure justice for our clients. And we have the track record to prove it. Insurance companies often make offers based upon the demonstrated trial skills of the plaintiff's counsel. We have demonstrated those skills to insurance companies. At DawsonBrownPS, you can be confident your attorney’s trial skills place you in a strong bargaining position.
In most cases, DawsonBrownPS represents its clients on a contingent fee basis. Under this arrangement, attorney fees are fixed at the outset as a percentage of the recovery. If there is no settlement or jury verdict, our client pays no attorney fees. It’s as simple as that.
Before accepting a case, we screen the facts carefully to ensure the case has merit, and determine there has been substantial harm. Once we accept a case, we will devote the full measure of our resources to it. We will do this with the highest regard for the rules of professional ethics and courtesy that govern our profession, and we will demand the same from those who oppose us.
DawsonBrownPS is honored that other law firms associate us as trial counsel on their cases. Bob Dawson also enjoys the distinction of being selected as President of the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association (now Washington State Association for Justice), and listed among “Best Lawyers in America”. Bob and Peter have been repeatedly selected as being among “Seattle’s Best Lawyers,” and have been selected as“Washington State’s Super Lawyers.” Our newest lawyer, Shannon Kilpatrick, has been selected as a Washington State Super Lawyers “Rising Star.” And all of our lawyers enjoy an Avvo.com 10.0 “Superb” rating. But our greatest honor of all is that our clients chose us as their attorneys.
