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.
Andrew was instrumental in helping my Company launch. He kept me up to date and pays attention to detail. I would strongly receommend Andrew to any business owner in need of legal services.
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.
Andrew provided me with guidance on various legal issues. He took time to research the issues at hand and get back to me in a timely matter.
