Most Professional and a super nice guy
Wayne represented me in a case involving me tripping and falling on a raised panel on a sidewalk and breaking my jaw in 3 places. Wayne was most professional dealing with the insurance companies and the people involved in this case. He got me a satisfied settlement. You couldn't ask for a nicer guy or a more professional attorney. Wayne knows his stuff. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs a good attorney. He even reduced his own wages so I could walk away with more money. What Attorney does that? Thank You so much Wayne.

Highly Recommened
Wayne and his staff helped me come to a settlement agreement with an Insurance company that I had been working with on my own. Although the settlement was less then I felt was appropriate it was more then I had been able to negotiate on my own. In addition, Waynes fees were very fair and reasonable. I would not hesitate to use Wayne again or refer him to any of my friends or family.

Personal Injury Case Review - Wayne Hawn
Wayne Hawn was a fantastic attorney. I first met with Wayne in Portland, OR. He traveled up here from Bend, OR to meet me and discuss what happened. He was very caring and confident in my case, thus I hired him a few days later and began the process. As this was my first time being involved with a lawyer, my understanding of the process was minimal. Wayne knew how to properly convey and illustrate each step along the way. He was a true teammate throughout the entire year of our case. He laid out what he believed was to occur and 95% of the time, it happened. I would recommend Wayne for any and all cases. If you're searching for a lawyer, give him a call and meet up with him. I am sure at that point you'll realize how experienced he is. Thanks again Wayne, Your friend

A Great Ally and a Great Person
I spent a year fighting with my health insurance company over a very large medical claim due to a serious accident. I pursued every avenue I could think of, including the state insurance commission – all to no avail. It was so refreshing when I finally sought representation from Wayne Hawn, because for the first time I felt that I really had an ally. Through his expertise Wayne was able to prevent the insurance company from pulling more of the tricks they had been using, and he ultimately got them to concede my claim. Furthermore, his fees were very, very reasonable – and to cap it all off he is a downright nice guy! The firm of Brothers, Hawn, and Coughlin had been recommended to me by a co-worker, and you can be sure that I will, in turn, be recommending them to everybody I know who may someday need legal representation!

Very helpful
Wayne helped us get a better settlement from the insurance company of a person who caused an accident we were damaged in. He explained the process very well. He did everything he promised. He did not promise more then he could deliver. He even got some recovery for our health insurance company. If I need a lawyer again I would hire Wayne again.

An attorney that works for the client
When I was hurt in an accident, no one seemed to want to take responsibility and provide the medical care that I was very much in need of. That's where Wayne D. Hawn came in. Upon meeting and talking with him, he jumped right in to help me get the care that I needed. His first priority was to get me healthy and feeling better. At no time did he try to rush my medical treatment for his own personal gain. In fact, he knew there was a possibility that he would take a loss on the case but he proceeded anyway. It was almost two years before we came to a place of settlement with those involved and Mr. Hawn was an absolute professional through it all. The thing that stuck out to me the most is that he was more interested in my well being and that I got what I deserved from all that I went through. He definitely is an attorney that works hard for his clients.

Positively elated by results
I was in a car accident and needed back surgery, and sustained > $55k worth of medical bills, but Wayne was able to negotiate the medical bills down to < $22k, leaving me with a substantial pain & suffering award. I previously thought I would be stuck with leftover bills, so I am positively elated by the results... Moreover, Mr. Hawn was professional, kept me regularly updated, COMPASSIONATE, and was a pleasure to work with. He worked miracles for me, and I give him the absolute highest recommendations.

Will not be intimidated
I was in a car accident while employed by a Fortune 500 Co. who's vehicle insurer claimed to have only minimal coverage. Wayne wasn't afraid of them. Together we faced them down and eventually they realized they couldn't bully us. They settled. I am a law student and I only hope to be as client oriented as Wayne is.

Relationship: Co-worker
"I had the pleasure of working with Wayne for several years when he practiced in Alaska. Wayne is an excellent, intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate attorney. Wayne worked hard to get good results for his clients. He is honest, kind, and dedicated to his cases. Wayne represented clients in complex litigation including highly successful representation of two seafood processors in the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Whether a car accident, aviation accident or products liability matter, Wayne has the intelligence, knowledge, and dedication to obtain the kind of results that truly make a positive difference for the injured people he has helped. I highly recommend Wayne."
