About James

4
Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    30%
    As a personal injury lawyer in the Seattle area, I represent those injured in construction accidents, maritime accidents, slip, trip and fall accidents, and other accidents caused by the negligence and reckless acts of others. I also represent those injured as the result of medical malpractice, including failure to diagnose and surgical mishap cases. Sexual abuse cases are handled as delicately as the subject matter of the claim itself.

  2. Car accident
    25%
    I represent those injured in a car, truck, bike, or motorcycle accident or those who have had a loved one who has died due to the reckless or negligent acts of another. When a car accident occurs, I thoroughly investigate the accident and often work with accident reconsructionists and other professionals to determine all causes that contributed to the accident and bring a lawsuit against those responsible for causing the accident, including those who may be responsible for road conditions.

  3. Wrongful death
    25%
    In wrongful death litigation, we work tirelessly to prove the cases of our clients and to recover for them the full measure of damages for their loss. We know the types of tactics that defendants often use to avoid paying what they owe. They may seek to drag out the litigation process as long as possible, and offer inadequate settlements to “make the matter go away.” They may also try to make the loved ones feel like they will lose their case in court by trying to shift the blame onto the person

  4. Medical malpractice
    20%
    As a medical malpractice lawyer, I represent those who have suffered from the negligent act of a medical professional. I work tirelessly to prove your claims and to advance your case with the goal of obtaining fair and just compensation for your injuries. If the defendants do not offer a settlement that is acceptable, I am prepared to go to trial and seek to prove the damages that you or a loved one has sustained.

When clients are injured, they look for an experienced personal injury attorney who is willing to work hard to prove their case. They want an attorney who can take on the insurance companies and their teams of lawyers, and who will go to whatever lengths are necessary to prove their case.  They want an attorney who hopefully will be able to get them a fair settlement quickly, but if this is not possible, an attorney who can do an outstanding job in proving their case at trial.

I understand, and I take great pride in offering these services to our clients.

 

Importantly, my firm also know that a critical part of representing clients is the trust that clients place in our hands with their matter.  If they have been injured, or a loved one has been killed, they want an attorney whom they can trust, and who will be there for them whenever they are needed.  Every client and every case is unique, and it’s important to build a strong bond with clients so that we can better make their case, and so that we can guide them carefully through the legal process in attempting to secure fair compensation based upon their damages and their particular circumstances.

As an attorney and legal counsel, I am there for clients throughout their lawsuit to explain the legal process so that they know exactly what to expect.  We are also there to take on the burden of fighting the opposing parties so that our clients can resume their lives.

If a family member has been killed or if you’ve been injured, please call me.  There is no cost or obligation for meeting with us, and we will be happy to discuss with you the options that may be available for your case.  

 

My staff is competent, caring, and will keep your case moving towards resolution. At Dore Law Group, you've got an entire team of professionals to look after the legalities of your case, so you can concentrate on your personal well-being.   

 

Give us a call.   We are here When It Matters Most.

TEAMWORK!
Dore Law has done it again! A couple years ago, we got into a car accident and my sister previously worked with Dore for help. As expected, she got the help she needed and more. Last summer, we had another accident and my sister recommended Dore since she's worked with them and they provided such great service. During the waiting period, I was starting to get nervous but in the end Dore always comes through and delivers. They didn't give up on us and made sure that justice was served. I so very appreciate all their time and efforts that was spent on my case. Accidents are a tough situation to be in and don't wish it upon anybody but if something ever happens again, I will be sure to seek help from the Dore team. I definitely recommend them and will be recommending them should I know of anyone in need of legal expertise. THANK YOU SO MUCH DORE LAW, YOU ALL ARE THE TRULY THE BEST!!

A Lawyer for the People
Mr. Dore and his legal team were fantastic in ensuring our case was respectfully closed and in a timely manner. Our case involved our apartment complex moving us into unfinished and hazardous conditions without our knowing until health complications arose. Mr. Dore has selected the best team for hands on, direct, and persistent legal action to be investigated, confirmed and eventually closed. We felt confident in the work that he and his team conducted throughout the whole process and ended up winning our case. Mr. Dore is a man who will fight for you and is a man that I would recommend to anyone in need of professional guidance and legal action.

Caring staff
I tripped on a raised piece of sidewalk and dislocated my shoulder. When the city refused to pay my medical bills, James came to my rescue. He was compassionate and caring and handled everything. Someone from his office was in contact with me almost every week to see how I was doing. It took 3 years but James got the responsible parties to pay my bills plus extra. What I like about James and his staff is how passionate they are about taking care of their clients and doing what is best for the client

Lab Assistant
I was involved in a side-swiped accident, where the other party did not have insurance but they got the other party to tic my car, pay my medical bills, chiropractor bills for a year, and still received some cash. It took awhile but it's all worth it. I highly recommend Dore Law Group. Thank you for your service!

Always there when you need him
After a work injury from failed safety checks, I relied on Dore and his expertise to help get financial compensation for medical bills and missed income due to my inability to continue in my trade. The amount of time and effort he has spent helping me and my family was phenomenal. If ever I need legal advice he is my go to guy.

Thank you Mr. Dore
Needed legal advice for a family member. Jim Dore made time for me, spent a great deal of time explaining the merits of our legal concerns, and followed up to see if everything went smoothly. You really don't expect or see that very often. Our entire family is very grateful.

Review of James Dore jr.
James (Jim) Dore is an excellent malpractice lawyer. He is not only well versed in the law but is also very diligent in his work, Jim researches all documentation of the case, reviews statements of all expert witnesses, and manages his staff effectively to coordinate all the data. Jim Dore is also an extremely personable individual, during stressful times he would often discuss sporting activities we both active in earlier times. After the close of my case we have remained friends for several years now.

James J. Dore Jr is an effective malpractice lawyer.
James Dore is not only a professional, effective lawyer, but Is also personable. James worked with Ann Duetscher to achieve an effective conclusion to our medical malpractice suit. He helped organize and manage a huge quantity of years of data, including doctors' records, notes, and reports. Also included were client's abilities, accomplishments, activities, and family as well. This hard working team of lawyers achieved a positive outcome to our malpractice case. Thank you.

Jim
Jim was excellent. I was injured and didn't quite know where to go. My friend recommended Jim because she had worked with him before. He was the best. His staff was helpful and was able to answer all of my questions. I'm so glad I chose to hire an attorney because even after his fees I got much more money than I would have without and it made it a lot easier for me to feel good seeking appropriate health care. I recommend him to everyone.
