5.0 stars 33 totalReview Steven Lingenbrink
When you meet with Steve, whether it's the first or tenth time, it's always with the same level of interest, expertise and attention to detail that not only maintains focus, it preserves the intense level of trust that is so critical when considering all that is at stake in these types of situations. From experience, I can attest to the fact that his performance is unparalleled, and quite frankly, restores faith in the legal system. Steve is a true champion, advocating for those who are at a great disadvantage with insurance companies undermining recovery and avoiding their obligations, and lives up to the real definition of the title Esquire - Champion of the Commoners. Steve kept me and my daughter well-informed, pursued every available avenue and protected us each step of the way. Our case was literally being ignored by a previous firm. Then we met with Steve and he completely turned everything around which enabled us to continue with treatment and gave us the peace of mind we were missing to move on with our lives. Taking a chance with anyone else would be like buying a bottle of wine just for the label. Why not experience incredible quality, approachability and refinement like "The Chief" by Mark Ryan - a serious wine that delivers! Thank you.
When I went to Steve, I had met him through work so called him right away after my accident, but didn't entirely know what to expect or how the case would go. Steve and his staff made me feel so comfortable with the process. When my case did have to go through litigation, I felt prepared and like I had a real advocate in my corner. He calmed my nerves during my deposition and mediation and you could tell that he was respected by the mediator and even the defense counsel! So glad he was in my corner!
I was rear ended and didn't think I needed an attorney but I'm glad I talked to Steve Lingenbrink. From the very first meeting, he was very knowledgeable, professional and down to earth. I knew that he could handle whatever came up in my case and boy am I glad I hired him. He and his staff did a great job in getting things done all the way to the settlement check. Which I am pleased with. Hopefully I will never have to hire Steve again but accidents happen and I will use him again if the need arises. Every time I hear somebody has been in an accident, I always tell them to call Steve.
Steve and his staff are the best. From beginning to successful resolution, I was well cared for. Not only were my phone calls and emails promptly addressed, but I was always kept informed about my case status. I'm very happy with the final settlement and the follow through on making sure that all of my healthcare providers were paid in full as well. I have recommended Steve and his firm to many others, and will continue to do so. Thank you!
The following review is my opinion based on my experience.
After two rear-end collisions five months apart that left me injured, I hired Steven Lingenbrink. After over twenty-five months of representation and a lot of frustrations due to a lack of legal guidance, I received a letter from Mr. Lingenbrink that he was too busy to continue with my case. Not only was I dealing with my physical recovery, Mr. Lingenbrink's letter caused me additional anxiety. One bafflement was, prior to the letter, he requested I submit five witness statements from friends and colleagues with a deadline to submit them on the same day his letter was composed. These statements were never used in the mediation.
Also prior to his letter, Mr. Lingenbrink strongly advised I fly back to WA (I had since relocated to another state) to be examined by a specialist that I believe did not influence the settlement. I paid for the trip expenses and specialist's fee, of course. Furthermore, since Mr. Lingenbrink was too busy to meet with me while in town, his two paralegals requested we meet for lunch. Even though I received no legal advice during this meal, the bill was added to my expenses after the settlement. I was also advised to have a functional capacity evaluation, reviewed by a career forensic specialist who subsequently interviewed me; however, the results were inconclusive and carried no weight in the mediation, yet I had to pay for their services. I strongly believe that, if Mr. Lingenbrink had studied my medical records, it would have saved me a great deal of time, and prevented the financial and emotional burden. In a Skype interview with my husband present, Mr. Lingenbrink admitted that, if he reviewed all his clients' medical records, he would be working 24/7.
Thankfully, another attorney in his firm stepped in to help me prepare for mediation and settlement. Both my husband and I flew back for the mediation.
While no one wants to work with an attorney who does not have the time to spend on their case, perhaps my review will prepare you for the possibility.

Mr. Lingenbrink provided excellent legal council and representation. He kept us informed of all legal proceedings and processes and was a delight to work with. I would highly recommend that you seek the legal support of Mr. Lingenbrink.

I am very relieved to have my case resolved-- and in a way that wasn't too stressful. I had some strong preferences with my case and Steve was able to work around them.

Without Steve's assistance I'm sure I would not have received the respect I needed from the insurance company. Get legal representation! I strongly recommend Steve.

This law firm made a horrific situation a lot less uncomfortable and always helped me understand all of the good and bad sides of everything that was being discussed.
I am the first one in my family to say don't trust lawyers but Steve, Heather and the team have changed my opinion of lawyers.
I am thanksful for Steve and his team!!

After my auto injury I really did not know how to deal with the insurance company. Thankfully my brother suggested I needed a personal injury attorney to represent me. Mr. Lingenbrink has the knowledge, patience and care to protect me while keeping me informed, updated and on top of the problem. There is not a better personal injury attorney out there. Steve really cares about his clients and wants to make a difference.
