Olympia, Washington is my home town. After law school, I practiced in Las Vegas, Nevada for about 8 years in the areas of workers compensation and personal injury. I then decided to return to my home town and joined the firm of Putnam Lieb to continue working on behalf of injured persons.
At Putnam Lieb, we take the insult out of injury. When you've been injured on the job, in an auto accident, or because of someone else's negligence, the challenges of recovery can be overwhelming. At Putnam Lieb, we put our experience to work to ensure our case is tailored to YOUR needs. There aren't any cookie-cutter approaches at Putnam Lieb. We personally involve ourselves in helping you restore your life.
We have successfully managed over 10,000 cases and will continue to represent those who need help in the Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pierce, and King Counties.
