My son had turned 18 two days prior to his accident. He was a pedestrian in a crosswalk hit by a driver, With his injuries obstained, medical bills and my son barely an adult we decided to consult with an attorney. Thank goodness Derek Radtke was there for us....his professional demeanor, attention to detail and promptly getting back with updates made the whole process much easier than ever!
I have had recent great success in the settlement of a complicated lawsuit and was very fortunate to have hired Mr. Radke to represent me. An accident had resulted in both business and personal losses which proved to be confusing to the defendant's counsel.
Mr Radke was able to convey this complexity satisfactorily to the opposing party and we reached a fair and appropriate settlement in mediation.
We had the court date scheduled 90 days away. Now we are done and I do not need to present my case to a judge and jury.
I have realized how emotionally charged this entire incident had become for me. I was able to sleep fairly well the night before mediation. This was not the best night's sleep I have ever enjoyed, but I was able to assure myself that I had hired the right person and calm myself so I received the rest I needed.
Mr. Radke proved this true at mediation.
Thank you so very much, Mr. Radke!
Now I can get on with my life!

From the beginning Derek let us know what to expect, how to proceed, and kept us informed during our lawsuit. He was always calm, reassuring, and gave us information about pros and cons of the case so we could make our own choices. In communicating with depositions, he allowed time to make appointments so people who wanted to add to the facts of the case could comfortably participate. We felt we were represented well and received a fair settlement with the insurance company we could live with.

Derek was there for me whenever I had a question or needed something. He kept me informed on a regular basis and always took whatever time was necessary to assure that I understood the processes and actions. I have complete confidence in Derek and would readily refer my friends and family to him.

Derek was able to help me start my life over. During the process I could call him, usually in tears, he was very calm, patient & caring. This calmed me & gave me the strength to keep going. He has helped me start the process to become more resiliant, as i move forward in my life, despite the health issues i have been left with. I would feel confident working with him again, should the need arise.

Derek is a professional, calm and calculating attorney.
He is well respected in his discipline and highly regarded by his peers, both proponent and opponent. He was very patient and understanding as he guided me through the multi-layered process of a my personal injury case. This was my first experience of this nature, and Derek made sure I was up to date and included along the way. He made sure I had the information necessary so I would not feel vulnerable or lost. Derek is a fine Personal Injury Attorney and I highly recommend his professional help to anyone seeking compensation for damages.

Derek is one of the nicest and knowledgeable attorneys I’ve work with; having owned a business, I’ve had to hire a few. This was the first time I had to hire an attorney for (boating) related personal injury case.
With Derek and his staff I knew what was going on every step of my case. I would recommend Mr. Radtke to any of my friends or family members. I was very satisfy with the outcome of my case.

Mr. Radtke was excellent on keeping me informed on every detail in my case. Everytime I called he always took the time to address any of my questions or concerns in a very sensitive case. Mr. Radtke was quick to get back to me anytime I was unable to reach him. He also was very knowledgeable and very trustworthy, I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Radtke to anyone who is looking for an attorney that cares about you.

Mr. Radtke and his staff dealt with my case professionally, kept me informed and in the end secured a settlement for me. The information exchange helped me understand the rules of engagement as well as the positioning and games associate with dealing with L&I and insurance companies. He is a down to earth and easy going person to deal with who gets the job done without making you feel like an idiot (lots of lawyers are good at the latter). We just finished a 3 year long case with an insurance company over an auto accident that went my way thanks to Mr. Radtke.
