I have the highest respect for George Kargianis. He is one of the most creative and courageous litigators I have ever known and is a sterling example of our legal community.
I have known George Kargianis for over 54 years closely as a fellow associate in a small "a-v" firm as a mediator, and when I served for 20 years as a Judge of the Washington State Superior Court., and as a trusted friend. He has been a member of the State Bar Board of Governors, has served as the past president of the Harbor Club, a prestigious downtown group of businessmen and professionals, and is the current president of the Columbia Club, an outstanding club in the Columbia Tower, the tallest building in the Northwest, and as a leader in many civic groups. George is the best trial attorney in this area that I have known. He is creative, innovative, honest and is most highly recommended for the top award as a trial lawyer. Horton Smith
George Kargianis has been a pillar of the Washington State Bar for over half a century. As the first lawyer to achieve a million dollar injury verdict in this state, he pioneered the way for victims rights for decades to come. He has served as a governor for the Bar Association, he is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and he has answered the call of Washington's governor to address the crippling traffic crisis. He is a true gentleman of the bar.
