About Me

It has been my privilege to assist thousands of people over the last 25+ years throughout the state of Washington.  I have never worked for insurance companies and never will.  I have devoted my practice to helping individuals and their families and, as a result, I have been extremely fortunate to have represented and assisted wonderful people over the course of my career.  Each has a special story and each is a unique individual with specific needs.  If you have any questions, please give us a call for a free consultation on any personal injury claim in the state of Washington.  I will be happy to answer your questions.

  • Clayton Arthur Hill

    I've watched Gary in trial, consulted with him on numerous difficult cases, and worked in his office for four years. He's the first guy to the office, the busiest guy in the office, and many nights he is the last guy to leave. He LOVES his job. He wins big results. When it comes to knowing the right questions to ask in a personal injury case, he's the quickest, sharpest mind in the room. He has the traits of a great trial lawyer, and results that prove it. When you talk to Gary obout a case that is gearing up for trial, you see total focus and preparation. You can tell he makes each client's fight the most important fight at the critical times.

  • Mark William Dustin O'Halloran

    Gary Gosanko is one of the best litigators in the business. His experience with and knowledge of lawyers, judges, cases, and trial techniques never ceases to be of assistance to me as a fellow litigator and mentee. He is a fountainhead of original ideas for solving complex legal problems, and he spends the time necessary to explore every new angle in order to earn the best result for his clients. I'm not aware of any other Washington attorney capable of earning a million dollar jury verdict for a soft issue injury case. Perhaps most importantly, Gary Gosanko is a good and steadfastly honest man. He is respected by his employees, clients, judges, and opposing counsel alike.
