I went into law to help those who needed to understand their rights, whether it was under an insurance contract or as a result of the negligence of others.
I continually try to improve myself and my office procedures so that I can make the best service available. I now have 31 years of experience and always apply the most efficient and creative approach I can to the complex issues and circumstances that people bring to me.
I have handled very complicated litigation such as electrocutions, poisonings, and product failures, along with on the job injuries, and product defects or failure to maintain equipment.
I depend on my able staff and our advanced technological systems to help us organize and structure our work. I have many colleagues I consult with on a regular basis and that helps me feel very connected to my legal brethren.
I served in Viet Nam and over the years devised a way to help veterans and their families through an organization that I started called The Veterans Advocates Guild. I am working to put together a network of attorneys to help me offer free or low cost legal assistance to this group.
In my off hours, I enjoy walking in the woods, fishing a bit, and borrowing a Harley once in awhile. I love a good book and love spending time with my large family.
Jerry Pearson has been practicing law in the Puget Sound for decades. He has helped countless people with injury claims and tried numerous cases to verdict. His experience and ability to spot good claims has made him one of the best attorneys in the area. I endorse Jerry Pearson.
Steven Shaw Car Accidents Attorney
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Jerry is a wonderful trial attorney and I consider him a friend first, a mentor second, and my co-counsel third. He has tremendous skills in ferreting out the legal issues in a case and we recently were quite successful in litigating a serious motor vehicle crash. Finally, he is willing to go the extra mile for his clients, and is not a stuffed shirt attorney by any means. He truly cares and his results are exemplary.
Edward Harper Personal Injury Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Jerald’s comment: “26 yrs ago, I self reported an infraction to the Bar Association and was suspended in late 1989 by Bar agreement so that I could complete a long trial. I returned to the practice of law by order of the Washington State Supreme Court in 1991. I regret the infraction and the time I lost trying to help others in my chosen field.”
