This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Jerald’s comment: “26 yrs ago, I self reported an infraction to the Bar Association and was suspended in late 1989 by Bar agreement so that I could complete a long trial. I returned to the practice of law by order of the Washington State Supreme Court in 1991. I regret the infraction and the time I lost trying to help others in my chosen field.”

Jerry is one of a kind. I've worked with him and Michele over the years on various matters and it's a relationship that I value a lot. Jerry is tough (He's a Marine), experienced/knowledgeable, and he can communicate in layman's terms extremely well - which probably comes easy for him because he really does care about helping his clients.
Jerry helped me with a boat insurance bad faith issue where my insurance company started bullying me, refusing to investigate my claim and fix my boat over the course of many months. I hired Jerry, and within a few weeks, the insurance company performed a full investigation and paid out on the claim.
I highly recommend Jerry and his firm.

I was involved in a motorcycle accident in the 90s after a truck cut me off in traffic. I contacted The Pearson Law Firm and Jerry and his staff were immediately helpful. It was bad enough being injured, but Jerry immediately took the stress of handling my own claim off of me so I could focus on getting healthy.
I've used attorneys for different matters over the years, and Jerry is by far the most skilled professional I've had the pleasure of working with. He really is a cut above the rest. He's also genuinely empathetic which is something I've found to be lacking with many professionals.
I have recommended Jerry and his team often and will continue to do so.

Jerry Pearson has been practicing law in the Puget Sound for decades. He has helped countless people with injury claims and tried numerous cases to verdict. His experience and ability to spot good claims has made him one of the best attorneys in the area. I endorse Jerry Pearson.
Edward Harper, Personal injury Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Jerry is a wonderful trial attorney and I consider him a friend first, a mentor second, and my co-counsel third. He has tremendous skills in ferreting out the legal issues in a case and we recently were quite successful in litigating a serious motor vehicle crash. Finally, he is willing to go the extra mile for his clients, and is not a stuffed shirt attorney by any means. He truly cares and his results are exemplary.
