I grew up in Tacoma and have practiced law in my hometown for over 31 years. I have been a member of the firm of Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler, LLP, since I graduated from University of Washington Law School in 1977. Since that time, I have dedicated my law practice to representing injured persons in Western Washington. I have considerable experience in cases of medical negligence, wrongful death, brain injury, truck accidents, auto accidents, construction site accidents and swimming and diving accidents. I have also been very active in my state and local bar associations.
I attended Woodrow Wilson High School in Tacoma, where I was a member of the swimming and water polo teams and was awarded All American honors in my junior and senior years. I attended the University of Washington on a swimming scholarship from 1970 through 1974, and was awarded All American honors in 1971, 1972, and 1973. From 1969 through 1972, I was ranked in the top 20 in the world in the 200-meter freestyle. I have been married to my wife Margaret, who I met at the University of Washington, for 33 years. We have 3 adult children, Holly, Adam and Ben.
