  • Karen Kathryn Koehler

    Bill Bailey is a fabulous and talented trial attorney. We have worked on many cases together and teach together at the UW law school. Bill cares about his clients and their cases, probably more than anyone else that I know. He feels their pain to his core. This means he fights as hard as he possibly can to make things right for them.

    Bill is a terrific lawyer. He is a pleasure to work with, even as an adversary. He represents his clients with vigor, innovation and great skill, and obtains first class results.
