Arthur and his team were great. They were very responsive and explained everything I needed to know (sometimes more than once). I would not have been able to get this settlement by myself. Additionally, they took care of calls from billing offices ,so their agents would stop harassing me. Thanks Arthur and Heather.

When I found myself in a situation where I was under-insured, Arthur's industry experience and persistence with the insurance company made a huge difference, getting me the best possible settlement, and quickly! Thanks Arthur!

After my terrible, life changing accident I was scared and alone. I was given a list of three attorney's business addresses and phone numbers, not knowing any of the three. I made the leap of faith and contacted the Alder & Giersch Office. I never looked back on my decision. They were very specific on what I needed to do, they kept me informed of every document (medical evaluations, work lost, witness account of how the injury changed my daily life) collected in building a clear understanding of what has happened to me since the day of the accident. I was afraid and lost as to how things would evolve, but Debbie and Arthur kept vigilant of my mind and health. Words can't clearly describe my debt of gratitude to this wonderful team of professionals looking out for me. My case has finally come to a close and I feel that my life is beginning anew, with hopes of a normal living again. Though I will never be as healthy as before the accident I now know that any limits I may experience can be met with strength and the endurance I found from Arthur, Debbie and the rest of their team.

We were represented by Arthur for an accident in which permanent loss of mobility resulted. We were not at fault for the accident, and Arthur and his firm were extremely knowledgeable for this type of case. He efficiently obtained the necessary information needed for mediation, without wasting our time (or money) by preparing only what was necessary for each stage of the process. During mediation he maintained our best interests in a time that we were tempted to make emotional decisions. He successfully closed our case without needing to go to court.

Arthur provided excellent counsel as my case moved through the litigation, arbitration, and mediation phases. I appreciated his grasp of the fine details of my case, his experience with insurance companies and knowledge of auto accident injury. Arthur was supportive and positive and worked well with my lead attorney. I highly recommend Arthur Leritz.

I had orinigally hired a lawyer that retired before my case ended and left her cases in the hands of a new group of lawyers that I soon found myself disenchanted with how they represented me and the extent of the seriousness of my case. I was blessed with meeting an individual that recommended Adler & Giersch and I left my other lawyers behind. It was the single most significant thing I could have done for myself, my injuries and my future.
Arthur was soon put on my case to handle the litigation process and I could not have been better represented. His knowledge, understanding and caring is evident in all aspects regarding a case like mine. Arthur, and the entire lawyer team, truly cared about me as an individual and did everything in their power to help me in my emotional and physical healing process. Arthur fought hard on my behalf through this process and understood what I was going through, from frustrations to accomplishments, all the way to the end. I could never truly put down in words how blessed I am/was to have Arthur and Adler & Giersch on my side during the single most trying time in my life. I am truly grateful and recommend them to anyone in any legal situation where someone is in need of a supportive team of individuals, not just lawyers.

I highly recommend Mr. Arthur Leritz to anyone seeking representation with a personal injury claim. Upon my first meeting with Mr. Leritz, while still recovering from my injuries, he was very understanding and compassionate of my situation. He laid out my case in detail, explaining everything in layman's terms and allowed me every opportunity to ask questions. He was prepared with a plan of action on how we should proceed and what to expect from the other party. There were no surprises.
While it took a year to settle my case, the lines of communication were always open. I received updates from Mr. Leritz or his paralegal throughout the process and was always copied on emails and letters. At the end, Mr. Leritz delivered fully on the final outcome. I couldn't have been more pleased and relieved to reach a fair and amicable settlement.

After losing my 17-year-old daughter in a DUI accident (April 2010) it became very apparent that she would need a voice. I was very fortunate to have been introduced to the law firm of Adler Giersch. Arthur Leritz was one of the attorneys who spoke for my daughter.
My daughter had been the passenger and was ejected from the vehicle. The driver had been thrown from his seat to the rear of the vehicle and was, for the most part, unhurt. After denying that anyone was with him repeatedly and stating that he was not driving he was taken to hospital. Two hours later a County Sheriff came across my daughter's body. When the driver was asked who she was he denied knowing her. As soon as he was informed she had not made it he started to point the finger at her and say that she was driving. My daughter did not drive.
Arthur gave my daughter a voice. Arthur worked with the prosecuting attorney and the sheriff's office to bring the driver to justice and prove that my daughter was not driving. Arthur gave her a loud voice that shouted in no uncertain terms that justice would prevail. And it did.
I wanted the young man who had been driving to be held accountable - and he was.
I wanted the owner of the home who allowed minors to party to be held accountable - and he was.
I was never alone in court. There was always one, two, or three attorneys from Adler Giersch present.
The drivers' brother was very aggressive, especially at the sentancing and Arthur was right there by my side.
If you are in need of a compassionate attorney who knows the law you cannot go past Arthur Leritz. Not once did he say he would call and not. If I called on weekends he either answered his phone or called right back. I cannot speak highly enough of Arthur Leritz or the other attorneys and staff members of Adler Giersch.
They were able to get a settlement for my daughter without going back into court. After the settlement came through as I was worried about wasting the settlement they recommended I get in touch with an investment firm.
Nothing will ever bring back my daughter nor take away the pain but knowing the people responsible have been made accountable gives some solice.
Arthur was kind and compassionate all through the horrible ordeal. He always kept me informed of every little aspect and was very patient explaining things that I did not understand. Arthur was always available and willing to listen to me vent.

Arthur and his team were a great resource to me while I was navigating my way through the nuances of the insurance world after my car accident. Though the entire process, I felt like I was kept up to date on the process of my case and felt very comfortable asking for clarification when I didn't understand something. Arthur is very good at breaking down the more complicated steps into a very accessible explanation that I can understand. His guidance through the process made me feel more at ease about what was going on with my case.

As an opposing defense attorney, Arthur and I have litigated a number of claims against each other. I have consistently found him to be a model of professionalism, yet he represents his client's with extraordinary zeal. This is unfortunately, an extremely rare character combination today. I highly recommend Arthur to anyone who may be considering a personal injury action. Because i work exclusively for the defense and cannot take on such matters myself, I have referred a number of my personal friends and acquaintances to him and would readily do so again.

I was very apprehensive having to use an attorney, but Arthur and his office exceeded any expectations that I had. He was very good at communicating with me throughout the duration of my case . He also educated me throughout the entire process so I had a good understanding about any legal terms that were being used. I would highly recommend Arthur to any of my family or friends.

I was in an accident in which whiplash occurred. It took me a year to contact Adler-Giersch Law firm.
Arthur Leritz took over my case at a midway point. It did not take him very long to become knowledgeable with my situation and in our conversations in person, via email and the telephone, kept me informed very well. To watch Mr. Leritz and his team in action was encouraging. He was not afraid to bring in another attorney that counter balanced the opposing sides strengths at no expense to me. He knew what to say and how to say it. It is unfortunate that there is a ’game’ that must be played in the world of injury lawsuits, but if you have to go there, go knowing your lawyer can do the job and do it well.
My case was what I felt a lengthy process, due to choices I made medically. My court date was set two + years down the road, something that was not controllable. My neck and shoulder had been hurt at the accident, my neck giving me the most trouble, so that is what I concentrated on. My shoulder was more of an issue than I had thought. The encouragement and advice from the Adler-Giersch firm, Mr. Leritz and his team was life changing for me. They were personable yet professional. Surgery, PT, and time have made the difference for me. The settlement was right up where expected, I felt it was fair and just, and we did not have to go to court!
Counsel and advice are important to seek out when going through an injury lawsuit. I would highly recommend Arthur Leritz to represent you. He is professional, energetic and knowledgeable. Thank you Adler-Giersch Law firm and Arthur Leritz!

After getting rear-end back in 2008 and sustain a neck and shoulder injury. I made the mistake of thinking that I could do everything on my own. That was my 1st mistake. After going through 18 months of physical therapy, then shoulder surgery. I received a bill of 30k and still did not having an attorney. That was my second mistake. I decide that I need to seek the advice and protection from an attorney some 4 week before the 3 year date of my accident. A friend at work recommends Adler Giersch which I contacted right away. I received an interview the next day with Arthur Leritz a Personal Injury Law attorney. He took the case even thought of the time constraint. He immediately filed a stay to protect me from the insurance companies denying my claim. He worked very hard with the insurance companies and over the next few months he got me a fair settlement. He kept in the loop at all times and his knowledge of Washington law was instrumentally in a successful outcome for me. I would recommend Adler Giersch Personal Injury Law firm and Arthur Leritz to anyone who needs the service of a Personal Injury attorney.

Mr. Leritz is the best Personal Injury Lawyer around! The communication was second to none, he always was prompt in calling me back, and Arthur Leritz made me feel more like a friend then a client.
After I was almost scammed into taking ridicules three figure car accident settlements. I contacted Mr. Leritz and he came out swinging, after the dust settled the two insurance companiesâ€™s added three more zeros to that settlement check. Thank you Arthurâ€¦

Arthur handled my personal injury claim very professionally and competantly despite going against a large very reluctant insurance carrier. He kept me informed of the process and was a pleasure to work with under such trying circumstances.

Arthur was a very honest straight shooter. He knew the laws and rcw's , reveiwed previous cases like mine to get me a winning outcome.

Attorney Leritz is a great addition to the Adler team.
He picked up my case which involved dealing with a very headstrong insurance company. With his knowledge of the law and persistence, he finally drove them into submission.
A lesser lawyer would have given up the fight and settled.
He did this although my fee had already been paid to AG because he didn't feel it was fair that I was being treated in this manner by the insurance company and because he felt that I should receive every nickel I was legally entitled to.
I am very satisfied with Arthur's performance on my case.
