    I have had the privilege of working with Al for 5 years. He consistently impresses me with his vast substantive knowledge of the law. He always works to ensure his clients are represented with the best legal arguments and works to resolve complex matters in creative ways.

  • Stephen Gregory Hammers

    I endorse this lawyer. I represented a California client who had commercial cases pending in both CA and WA. We needed WA co-counsel and interviewed a number of litigators in the Seattle area. We selected Al and he promptly proved to be the right choice. He filed first rate papers, prevailed on a hotly contested motion in the WA case, and obtained a complete victory for the client. Highly skilled, ethical lawyer.
