I retained Evan Oshan to be my attorney for my accident case and he handled it perfectly! He got me more money than expected and I received an excellent settlement without having to go to trial after all doctors were paid. I plan to use the money to help buy a new house for my family which I will be grateful forever. I also made a good recovery from my injuries so everything turned our well and I am very pleased. Hopefully I would never need to hire a lawyer again but if I do I will use only Evan. I would recommend him to others.

I was involved in two different accidents 7 months apart with two different vehicles. I had preexisting conditions and my case was very complex. I was going to deal with the insurance companies myself but then decided I needed help after getting loads of letters and calls.
I called and interviewed many lawyers but I got a strong recommendation to hire Evan Oshan and or Oshan & Associates. The office is located in Downtown Seattle and was super easy to find. Right from the start I was able to talk directly to Evan (not to a secretary or an answering service). Evan spent a considerable amount of time explaining everything and the whole process. I was amazed to see how long he spent with much understanding and empathy to how these accidents affected my whole life. I was also very impressed with his knowledge and his confidence in taking on my cases. After many consultations and interviews with peer lawyers I felt most comfortable hiring him. Evan kept in constant communication with me on the status of the claims, and often checked to see how I was doing. Evan dealt with the insurance companies and all health providers. My job was only to get healthy and better. Evan also made sure I had an advance service that gave me some money prior to settling my cases which was very helpful for me and my family.
He made sure I was able to get the personal injury care I needed with no out-of-pocket expenses. Evan also advanced all the costs associated with my case. I suggest anyone needing help with a similar matter get in touch with Evan Oshan ASAP. The peace of mind in having professionals handle the case was well worth it. Would I recommend this firm to anyone I know? Of course I would in a heart beat.

I was in a car accident about two years ago and I contacted Evan Oshan for his assistance in my case. I was struck by a vehicle from behind and the driver was not insured. Evan handled my case promptly and I recieved a settlement for the amount that I was expecting.

Great job for getting my case solved.
I do not want to put too much information on this website about my case because it is public but all I can say is that I am very pleased with the services Evan provided.
I am very grateful and will call him if I ever need help in the future.
I will be a life long client.
Thanks for everything and hope all is well.

I have not had the best experience with past lawyers however, Evan was a great attorney by far. He provided me and counseled me through the process.
He kept me informed, he was easily reachable by email and messages and always got timely reply and answer when I needed it.
Evan helped me with getting policy limits from the other side as well as policy limits from my insurance policy.
I have had great results and can look forward to better times. I truly am happy with the outcome and would recommend this attorney.
Evan also recommended certain doctors which grossly impacted the settlement offers. Before getting Evan involved the insurance company offered me $3000 to settle and after I got 2 policy limits which has made a world of difference.

Thank you Evan for doing everything you have done for me so far.
I never met someone who worked for me as hard as you did.
You really gave me confidence to move on with my life and look for a bright future.
I will definitely recommend you to colleagues and friends because you really are an awesome attorney.

Evan Oshan is a great attorney by far. His fees were reasonable and fair. He dealt with my case in a professional manner and always kept me informed.
Evan Oshan Provided me with competent,diligent, and assertive representation. Mr. Oshan was able to persuade the prosecutor to reduce my felony charge to a misdemeanor.
I was very happy with the results he obtained for me. He did not over promise like other attorneys have in the past, however he over delivered.
I believe actions speak louder than words and he proved to me that he can deliver results. At one point I was late and short on my payment to Evan and he understood and was patient with me and I really appreciated that.
Some people kick you when you fall down but Evan didn't. He was there to help just like he promised. He was always there to take my calls and meet with me to discuss case issues. Every time I emailed or called, I gotten an answer within 24 hours back. He came up with a case strategy and it proved effective.

If you find yourself facing a dui charge, please do yourself a favor and interview at least two other attorneys who specialize in dui cases before deciding to hand over your fate to Evan Oshan. My counsel assured me that he had much experience in dealing w/ dui cases and was confident, albeit, was not able to guarantee, that he would be able to plead my case down to reckless driving. He was often late to proceedings but eager to ensure that he was compensated for his tardy appearance. Evan is often occupied with his other cases so I did not receive responses to voice mails and emails in a timely manner. I have received penalties consistent with if I had gone through the whole process without a knowledgable attorney. I've lost my license, lost time from my job, am required to serve jail time, paid hefty fines and have had to take loans to pay for my attorney fees. Evan may receive glowing reviews for personal injury and immigration cases but he should really leave dui cases to to the experts.

Evan did a great job, he turned my case around. Liability was disputed by the other driver and Evan proved them wrong. He hired a private investigator and really devoted his time to help me out. I know for a fact he got the maximum compensation possible. Thanks Bro!

Mr. Oshan handled my personal injury claim from start to finish. He made the process easy for me and always stayed on top of my case. He is a top notch attorney and from looking at all the comments other attorneys left for Mr. Oshan he is well known in the community.
He is everything I looked for in an attorney: intelligent, honest, fair, easy going and knows how to handle adjusters and personal injury cases. He represented me and I also recommended him to 2 coworkers and they were happy with him too.
I just wanted to say to whoever is looking to hire him, that he is a great lawyer. I hope this review is helpful.

I got a phone call from Evan asking for my honest review or recommendation and without a single hesitation I would recommend him to any of my family members or friends. He helped me out a year ago and informed me of everything every step of the way, he was patient with me when I was anxious and knew how to keep me calm. Evan knew all the loop holes and how to get the results I wanted, so thanks Evan, once again, you have been a great impact on my life!

I was in a car accident and suffered a mild traumatic brain injury + mild concussion.
Evan got me really good results without having to put too much detail of my case. All my bills for the doctors were paid, I got a new car and even had a trip to Hawaii.
Thank you Evan, I can move on with my life. This accident caused me to have deep depression and I finally feel good for a change.

I was in an auto accident in 2010 and the other insurance company denied liability. Evan Got investigator and witness statements out of his own money and never asked anything from me throughout the whole case. He hooked me up with doctors that waited to get paid until the case was resolved and in the end he got me policy limits!!! Now I am purchasing a house with the money I got, This was by far the best Christmas everrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. He took my calls even in the middle of the night when it was an emergency. He dealt with my criminal case as well as my immigration case and if I ever need him again, I would hire him and nobody else.
He is our family lawyer for life. I would never use any other lawyer again. He was reasonable in his fees and we paid payments that we can easily afford over time. He trusted us with pre dated checks and we developed such trust in each other.
One time I couldn't make the payment in a certain month and I called him, he had no problems with it and was paid the following month, he was very patient with us, and dealt with all the headaches of the immigration officers and prosecutor.
Since the criminal case was considered a deportable offense he had to defend us in immigration court as well, he was efficient and seems to know everybody in the immigration proceedings, he seems to have connections and he was successful in all aspects of my case.
I would be forever grateful that I have a second chance in the United States because this is the only place I know and I grew up here. Evan represented me in the best way possible without over promising anything nevertheless, he got me the best results possible! If I had to be deported I would have had to leave my family, job and my whole life is here.
Words cannot thank you enough and this is why I am writing to you today. Thank you and thank god that both my cases turned out the way they did, otherwise it would have been a disaster.

I am so pleased and can breath again. This lawyer did a great job from the moment I hired him. After many negotiations with the prosecutor he was able to dismiss the case from my record and I only had to do some community service. I am really happy I chose him to defend me!

Mr. Oshan was 30minutes too an hour late for every court date we had together. Except for the date where I dismissed him from my employ. He was at that date earlier than I was, much to my surprise. He charged me by appearance, an exorbitant amount of money. The first date scheduled, he didn't enter the court room. Instead he called me 20 minutes after the hearing and just barely caught me. I had nearly left town cause I live many miles away and over a bridge from the courthouse and he was a no show for trial. Luckily they didn’t charge me with anything YET, when I approached the bench alone, and terrified. I was walking to a bail bonds place when he called. He charged me for this "appearance" where he had done nothing but give me a phone call. He never disclosed to me that he knew literally nothing about DUI cases. He mainly kept saying for months "Don't worry about it, Let me worry about it" and "The good news is, you have me as your lawyer". I calculated that I had a 90 percent chance of reaching Mr. Oshan’s voicemail rather than his person. I rarely heard from him. I tried to reach Evan for 2 weeks in vein, dreading my upcoming pretrial conference he had told me nothing about. He called me back at 10pm the night before my pretrial conference as i was preparing for bed. He had very little to say on the phone, no pertinent information at all. Just saying to relax and be calm. (when of course all the anxiety was from his inaction, and lack of communication) he seemed to be on my side the very few times we spoke he made it sound like everything was under control and that I had been wronged by the police, which I had been. But Mr. Oshan refused to even review the dash cam from the arrest. He subpoenaed no information from the prosecutor, when I got my case file back from him the only paperwork he had were records that I had acquired by myself. At the pretrial conference I could hear him talking about my case to the prosecuting team through the thin door. he sighed deeply and threw his hands up in the air as he entered the negotiation room (I saw this) and thats when i moved myself close to the door. The prosecutors laughed at him, Evan exclaimed how extremely patient he has been been with "the guy" (Me, insinuating I was a fool, or inept in some way). The prosecuting team then quoted word for word from the police report, things I had said during the arrest taken out of context (the officers written report) and Evan agreed with everything they said, becoming very silent after the prosecutor finished reading. Oshan was speechless after the presentation of a police report he had been sitting on for months... He basically agreed with everything that was in the report at that moment. However that did not stop him from keeping ALL of my money, he didn't return a single dime to me, after assassinating my character in front of the prosecuting team I believed I would get something in return. All this man is concerned with is getting your money and keeping it, performance is no concern of his, at least not in my case. You would be wise to be weary of this man. He may have his strengths i know he is very intelligent, but the fact remains he pulled a turncoat when we got to court. He began saying things like "Well look at it from their perspective" and "Well your a big guy, they had a right to do that cause your intimidating and they have to protect themselves' He also, at this point in the hallway of the court house defended their reasons for pulling me over, which are entirely false reasons that the video tape would have explained. but he dropped the ball and wanted me to pick it up. Be weary of this guy. He may be good but this was not one of those instances.

My husband was incarcerated for 8 months. I called many lawyers asking for help and no one would take my husbands case except Evan. He is the one that gave me hope. He always kept me infromed about what was going on. He was available for me 24/7.Any time of the day I could reach him and ask him whatever i needed and he was always there. He fought for my husbands case just as he would for a family member. As soon as i hired him i saw the case was finally progressing. I always had a copy of all the paperwork that was submitted to the court. With much time put into this case all turned out amazing. And now the father is back with his family.

I wanted to send you a letter thanking you for all of your hard work on my case with the auto accident that occurred in February 2010. From start to finish the whole process was made so much easier for me and reduced my stress concerning the accident. When I first contacted you nearly 14 months ago, you told me that you were there to do the heavy lifting for me and that my job at this point was to focus on getting better. You took an enormous burden off of my shoulders, from arranging to get my vehicle repaired to taking care of the billing associated with getting my back fixed. And then when needed, got tough with Progressive Insurance as they played their usual games.
I especially want to thank you for your hard work in the last 2 weeks with completing the settlement of my case and bringing this chapter of my life to a close. You exceeded my expectations in every way possible, including exceeding the settlement amount for my uses. I am truly grateful that when problems arose, you kept me in the loop in regards to what was happening, and when necessary you dropped what you were doing and helped me out.
So once again, thank you. You have made a client for life, hopefully I will not require your services in the future, but if I do, you will be the first person I call. I am also passing your name along to all of my friends and co-workers to keep you in mind if they ever need an accident attorney.

Evan Oshan was by far the best attorney I have ever worked with in the past. He was able to cut through the red-tape and deal with Homeland Security in a direct and efficient manner. He was aggressive, honest, and professional. He won my case where other attorneys had failed.
