About Me

Jason W. Anderson, a shareholder at Carney Badley Spellman, P.S., devotes the majority of his practice to civil appeals, which he has handled in all levels of Washington's appellate courts and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.  


 


Jason's appellate experience includes cases involving personal injury, products liability, insurance, health care, employee benefits, commercial disputes, dissolution / divorce, child custody, and more.  Jason came to practice after more than two years as a clerk for judges at the Washington State Court of Appeals, where he analyzed more than 100 appeals.


 


Besides appeals, Jason remains active in personal injury, insurance bad faith, class action, and insurance regulation matters at the trial court level.  He has first-chair jury trial and arbitration experience.  He has represented individuals, businesses, and life, health, property and casualty and other insurers in bad faith litigation and class actions, including cases brought under consumer protection laws.  He also represents insurance carriers and producers in administrative proceedings before the Office of the Insurance Commissioner of the State of Washington, addressing matters including licensing, approval of transactions, market conduct, and financial condition and reserves.
