    • I recommend William Carlson.

    Mr. Carlson was very helpful in addressing a legal issue and protecting my interests. He negotiated a settlement to cover medical bills resulting from a car accident where the other driver was at fault.

    • I recommend William Carlson.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Military Law matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Our family wanted justice for my brother twenty two years old, Specialist Ronald E. Dreier of the U.S. Army. He was killed in an off duty accident at Solo Point Fort Lewis May 2, 1990. The U.S. District Court dismissed our suite claimed it was bared by the Feres Doctrine. Whoever, Mr. Carlson with his expertise, dedication and countless efforts for my brother case was relentless. Mr. Carlson won a reversal on appeal where he persuaded the Appellate Court to apply “activities-Based” analysis to Feres cases now broadening access to civil justice for service members throughout the United States Armed Forces. Mr. Carlson was instrumental in creating new law under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Wrongful Death Dreier v. United States, 95 F.3d 1435 (9th Cir. 1996) commonly cited as “Controlling Authority”. because of Mr. Carlson’s continued dedication for justice to my brother and our family we have been able to help other military families to prevail with the legacy of my brother. Mr. Carlson’s recognized with posturing and tenacious attitude he could make change, in that commitment he was able to seize the opportunity to take this case all the way to the supreme court! He was committed to our case for over six years, that’s dedication!!!

    Our family is forever grateful!

    • I recommend William Carlson.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    When I was involved in a serious car accident, I thought the situation would take care of itself. Unfortunately, some people are dishonest and I had to seek legal counsel. During my first interview with with Bill Carlson, I was glad he was very upfront with what to expect with the legal process and the compensation I could potentially receive. He was amazing at answering all my questions and concerns in a timely fashion. Bill was my attorney for about a year and I can say without a doubt that he is in the legal field as a practitioner and not as a businessman. He truly cares about his clients and has a passion for what he does. If you are seeking a personal injury attorney, I would highly recommend William J. Carlson.
