I am a Pacific Northwest native. I graduated from the University of Washington in 1983 and the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco in 1986. Upon graduation, I decided I wanted to serve the people with whom I grew up, so I moved back to the Seattle area and began a general law practice which provided a variety of legal services such as family law, estate planning, small business consulting, and workers’ compensation. However, I soon realized that the work I found most compelling was representing the injured, who were often in desperate need of assistance to rebuild their lives after suffering a career or life-altering injury. 

In 1990, I changed my practice to solely represent the injured. The firm I founded has now grown to include three attorneys and 15 paralegals and office staff. Eight members of my team are also bilingual in Spanish. Our firm provides legal services to clients who have suffered injuries, either in an auto accident or other personal injury, or while on the job. We also now offer services to help people with social security disability benefits.

My background has left me with progressive values and a desire to ensure my firm does its part to promote diversity and social equity. Lehmbecker Law is a leader in Washington State, equally serving all members of our diverse community and we would love to help you, too.

Great people were quick and nice
They handled a personal injury claim for my husband and we had a fast and easy experience with them. They gave us the help we needed and we will use them again if need be! I’ve recommended them to friends

The very best experience ever.
The very best experience ever. They took such great care of me and were so thorough with all their details. I never felt like my interests were neglected or wanting for anything. Also it was very easy to follow their suggestions for all treatment and the people they recommended were very kind and helpful and tought me how to care for myself after physical therapy. I would highly recommend them to all my friends and family. Thanks.

My personal experience with Lehmbecker Law Firm
Very professional and friendly firm. They took the time to explain everything to me, and then devoted extra time to answer any questions that came up. They have been terrific in follow up call in questions, and I truly feel that I have someone on my side to prevent big company bullying. I would recommend Lehmbecker Law Firm to my friends and family.

L and I is a joke
I sought out counsel after injuring myself on the job and then, only after a month and a half of "waiting" for the state to comply and help me. Moreover, the Lehmbecker law firm was there and willing to offer support, and understanding for not only my injury but also for compassion for all the other struggles that the State has burdened me with....things outside of the actual injury and the legal process they were hired to handle , but related nevertheless. The Lehmbecker law firm and its ENTIRE staff are there to help, and they take their responsibility and their clients life and welfare seriously . I would, and have, refereed people to the Lehmbecker Law firm and feel more than comfortable in doing so.

Worry Free!
I was injured in a car accident about fifteen months ago and decided to hire this law firm because of a recommendation from my chiropractor. Since then, I have received excellent service from their team. They have thought of everything that would build my case and all I had to do was sit back and focus on getting better. Jessica is a god send, she has excellent communication skills she always followed through on her promises. Their might be better law firms but I have no regrets with this one. They took all the worry and stress with the doctors and the insurance company so I could go on with a normal life. Thank you so much!

Staff Always Patient, Professional & Helpful.
In the past I've often have had a hard time communicating due to learning disabilities. The staff has always been very polite & courteous with me. I feel that they really care about what I am going threw & all of my concerns in the case. Because they have really listened to my side of how I viewed things. With the best intentions to represent my case efficiently. Thank You Lorrain L.

Outstanding service delivery.
My attorney made the process clear and understandable to the average person. They demonstrated great compassion for me and my circumstances.

One of the best attorneys in Washington state
I am very happy with the results I received from settling two different cases I had with Mr. Lehmbecker and his law firm. My husband and I had an automobile accident in 2007 for which we received excellent compensation. Later, in 2012, I had another automobile accident for which I also had great compensation, considering that I had a previous MVA and had sustained injuries to the same body parts. I only rated "good" for "kept me informed" because sometimes I had to contact the law firm to get information but, again, they were quick to respond to my questions and to provide advice if they did not provide it immediately on their own. Mr. Lehmbecker is a very caring and knowledgeable attorney and I felt confident throughout both my cases that he would give me excellent results. I would highly recommend Mr. Lehmbecker to anyone who has a personal injury, worker's compensation or medical malpractice case.

AAA+++EXCELLENT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND LARRY ALAN LEHMBECKER!
What impresses me most about Larry is his integrity in all matters. His communication style is professional, knowledgeable, articulate, detailed, honest and direct. He always conveyed to me a depth of concern and compassion which allowed me to trust him to advocate for my best interests while I focused on recovering from a serious motor vehicle accident. Larry's dedication to vigorously advocate for me throughout a very complex legal situation and negotiations involving multiple insurance companies resulted in my receiving a settlement that was more than I hoped for but which he considered very fair. I highly recommend Larry Alan Lehmbecker and his team, who are all highly professional, experienced, knowledgeable, courteous, and compassionate. Larry did for me what I could not do for myself; nor do I believe what just any lawyer could have done.

Compassionate, Relentless, Effective, Experienced Litigator
This law firm is Great. They kept me informed on all that was going on, they cared, were compassionate, kept on top of it like you were their only client. They are not afraid to take on the big companies to help out the little guy. Always straight shooters with me never had to ask twice and when I did have a question if the person I talked to didn't know the answer they would find out what it was and always called you back. I never had a problem getting to talk to someone in the office, they never put me off with I will have them call you back unless they were not in the office, they always called back in a timely manner and with the questions I wanted answered. Great people to work with.I would recommend this law firm without hesitation to anyone that needed a great lawyer. I have had other lawyers in the past for different reasons and most of the time it was hard to get to speak to someone in the office not here. If you want a great law team on your side choose Larry Lehmbecker.

L&I case.
I was told about this office by a coworker and have been happy with them. The positive is that they are very personable and really seem to care. And the rates are very good. The negative, it can be difficult to get ahold of someone in a short time.

Horrible experience
I gave one star since this the lowest choice that I could see. I would choose horrible if the option is available. The layer didn't practice with due diligence. The layer didn't put client interest at the first. Instead, they put their interest and their business partner's interest ahead of client.'s The settlement is outside of common industry practice and standard. I reserve the right to further review the business partner relationship, the procedure of the claim and settlement, and to pursu legal action if needed.

Response from Larry Lehmbecker February 9, 2018
Dan, I apologize for not responding to you sooner, as I initially was unable to locate you in our system as a former client. I now realize that I was unable to identify you because you never were a client of my firm. We did, however, represent your wife for an injury claim. I understand that you were frustrated that your wife had to pay her medical bills from her settlement. A medical bill, like any other debt, must be paid unless the person to whom the debt is owed will waive it. As you know, your wife’s chiropractor did not waive the debt. Because he had an equitable lien on your wife’s settlement for that debt, it had to be paid from the settlement. Likewise, your wife signed a fee agreement with my firm. Our firm members worked a great deal on her case to get as high a settlement with as little costs as possible. We even managed to put over $2,000 in her pocket from the settlement after the medical debts and legal expenses were paid. She approved of this settlement and her case was closed. I’m sorry that you are not happy with how your wife’s claim turned out. I’d recommend that you both obtain health insurance and automobile insurance to ease the burden of medical debt in the future. Best regards, Larry Lehmbecker
