Mr. Ackley was referred to us by another attorney who didn't have the time to deal with such a small case. Andrew immediately sat down and collected all our facts, researched the Geothermal systems, and personally showed up to the site with engineers to inspect the issues to build a case that was against all odds of winning. Due to his diligence Andrew was able to secure us full reimbursement for removal of the improperly engineered Geothermal system and installation of a new one. Much more then we could ever thought could be accomplished.
His persistence throughout the entire legal process allowed us to take advantage of the insufficient work of the defendants. This may have been a small case in comparison, but it was a real big deal to us and we are extremely thankful Andrew was working for us.

I was referred to Andrew by a friend when I had a problem with a contractor who had made major mistakes on a building he put up for me. Andrew immediately understood my concerns and the scope of the problem. He was always available by phone if I did not understand the process, and email response was almost instantaneous. Andrew was able to resolve the issue in my favor. Throughout the time I worked with him he was fair, willing to discuss strategy and guide me to the best decision possible. I hope to never have a problem requiring the service of an attorney again, but if I do Andrew is the first guy I would call. I can recommend him unconditionally.

Andrew handled my not at fault car accident case. I would highly recommend this man. He is one of the best in his field, keeps you informed the whole time about what is going on, what is needed of you and how things are being handled. He was able to secure more at the end of the lawsuit than I thought I would ever receive. I am extremely happy with the outcome of the case that he handled, I would use him in any future cases.

He helped me with a personal injury case for about a year. My case was not so easy one but he did an excellent job and kept me updated all the time.
I really appreciate him and will hire him again when I get a trouble in the US again.

Andrew represented me in a personal injury case and was always ahead of the game. I recieved phone call and email updates often as to what was going on in my case. Andrew always provided me with best and worst case scenarios on how things were going to play out. I very much appreciated his availability to me whenever I had a question of any kind. Ackley is aces in my book.

I have worked with Andrew for a long time. He has been very helpful and willing to go beyond what has been expected. He is straight forward and will fight hard for your case. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and hard fighting lawyer.

I originally spoke With Sim Osborn and he referred the case to Andrew. Andrew did a great job and I am very happy with all the work he put in. During arbitration he did a great job of explaining my case and why everything was the way it was. If someone needs a lawyer I would not hesitiate to recommend Andrew.

On the same day I started a new company I was in an automobile accident. Not having the time to deal with the other parties insurance company (due to the fact I required substantial rehabilitation as well as the tasks associated with the new company) I reached out to Osborn Machler to litigate my case. Mr. Osborn referred me to his associate Andrew Ackley. Andrew was very patient (I had lots of questions) and explained how my case would be handled right from the first meeting. Once my rehabilitation was complete he worked diligently with the other parties insurance company to make sure I was fairly compensated for my insuries. I would highly recommend Andrew and will call on his in the future if his services are required..

Mr. Ackley assisted me in litigating and mediating a personal injury case.
I was instantly put at easy by his confident and professional demeanor. He was thorough in his explanations and did not sugarcoat or embellish.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or firm OsbornMachler for any personal injury claim.

Andrew helped me out after receiving a DUI. He maintained a calm, postitive outlook on the case. He did an excellent job at researching possible outcomes and then explaining to me scenarios and things I could expect. He always got back to me promptly about any questions I had and demonstrated thoughtfulness and effort when providing me with answers.

Mr. Ackerly represented me last spring in my Unemployment Insurance Appeal Hearing. I was forced to resign my position with a large national bank due to lack of work. I was initially declined unemployment benefits by the Washington State Employment Security Department for resigning without cause. After consulting with the Unemployment Law Clinic at the University of Washington’s Law School, Mr. Ackerly, a third year law student at the time graciously accepted me as a client and advised me that we had a strong and very winnable case. Over the next several weeks, Mr. Ackerly kept me up to date on all aspects of the hearing and we spent hours practicing questions and answers in preparation for the appeal.
When the hearing occurred, I felt prepared and confident in my case because of the work Mr. Ackerly and I put into the preparations. Mr. Ackerly professionally guided me through the questioning and we were able to present the facts in a clear and concise manner where the judge fully understood our reasoning and the point of law we were basing our case on.
As it turned out, the judge agreed with our arguments and granted me full benefits from the first day I became unemployed. Mr. Ackerly’s work and his representation of me at the hearing was the difference in me receiving the unemployment benefits I was entitled to. I highly recommend Mr. Ackerly as an attorney and have only the highest regard for his professionalism, integrity and ability.
