ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS DURING COVID-19. I AM HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE.

I have focused my 20 years of practicing law exclusively in the areas of personal injury and insurance matters.  I was formerly a senior attorney for a large national insurance company. Happily, I have since dedicated my practice to representing people and families who suffer from the effects of severe injuries or wrongful death. My insight into how insurance companies work helps me get excellent results for clients. As a partner at Adler Giersch, I'm very proud to be a part of a law firm that is very different from most others. We emphasize taking personalized care of clients, being good listeners, and still fighting hard for the best results possible. We are a small business that places emphasis on paying more attention to fewer cases, instead of trying to take as many cases as possible. My clients come from all parts of Washington State. I am especially proud to assist residents in Kent, and all of South King County, as I am a South King County resident myself.

I have extensive courtroom experience, having tried over 35 jury trials and 100 trials with only judges in my career. 

I have achieved an "AV" Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the top rating for attorneys based on reviews from other attorneys. I have received a "10.0" rating from along with the Client's Choice Award. I have been voted a "Super Lawyer" by that publication based on the votes of other attorneys. I am also a member of the Washington State Bar Association, Washington State Association for Justice (Eagle member), Brain Injury Association of Washington, King County Bar Association, and the Latino Bar Association of Washington. Lastly, I am a court-appointed arbitrator for the Superior Court in King County.

Mr. Steven John Angles is a fabulous attorney who is very professional, knowledgeable and caring!
I will most definitely recommend Mr. Angles to all my friends and colleagues! i had consulted with Mr Angles on a recent case and was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the law. There are three main qualities I look for when i seek out a law firm: professionalism, knowledge of the law as it pertains to my situation and compassion. I am indeed pleased to say that I found them all in the Adler Giersch Law Firm and especially in Mr. Angles who was very patient in explaining to me my options. When I was told to expect a phone call from Mr. Angles at 3:00 pm, the phone rang at 3:00 pm and Mr. Angles was on the other end! I will also tell you that I am very pleased with Carol Fritsch, the Intake Coordinator of the Adler Giersch Law Firm. This wonderful professional was VERY responsive to all my queries and actually gave me confidence when I first started inquiring about how I should proceed with my case. Thank you, Carol and Mr. Angles! It is NOT easy for most people to find a good attorney and i was fortunate to get connected to an individual who is very responsive and ethical.

Only regret was not finding him sooner
After months and months of fighting with insurance companies to pay for injuries sustained by my daughter in an auto accident, I was referred to Adler Giersch by one of our doctors. It was such a relief to turn everything over to a professional, experienced and compassionate attorney, Steven Angles. He always kept us informed in the process, carefully articulated the details of the case, gave us our options and didn't pressure us into an unwanted court case. Steven always did what was best for my daughter and not his bottom line. He ultimately won our daughter the highest possible award for an arbitration case. My only regret was not finding him sooner!

Highest recommendation for Steven J. Angles
Steven J. Angles is an exceptional attorney with a heart and an essential sense of humanity. I absolutely recommend Steven with the highest regards not just for his professional diligence, legal guidance, effectiveness, and persistence, but also for his unstinting kindness and compassion. I write this with the deepest gratitude for his valuable guidance through a most challenging time in my life following a car accident. I engaged Adler-Giersch for personal injury representation upon the recommendation of a trusted lawyer friend. I consider myself extremely fortunate that Steven handled my case with help from Maritza from beginning to its conclusion three years later. All the glowing recommendations he has received are well-deserved, and I’m proud to add mine for the exceptional service and kindness I received from him.

Best Personal Injury Lawyer
From the onset of meeting with the attorneys at Adler Giersch Injury Law office, I felt like my case mattered. I was always treated with respect and they were always there for me if I had any questions. I was only asked to provide a few things, but other than that they handled every aspect of my claim. The outcome of their hard work has truly been life changing.

Ethics, Skill & kindness!
Steven Angles is a committed, ethical, skilled lawyer and a really kind, generous human being! He takes time to understand you and what you have been through. He and his paralegal, Maritza, are an amazing, efficient team. They respond promptly to any enquiries and go the extra mile to assist their clients. I felt like I had a strong protector on my team in so many ways. Adler Giersch is an excellent firm with a great reputation. Obviously they take the time to hire the best and train their support staff really well. I am so beyond happy with the results of my case and how carefully and thoughtfully it was established. Steven Angles can see all sides and that is a real advantage. Do not hesitate, you will be well-represented!!!

Excellent Attorney Who Will Fight For YOU
Due to an accident in the summer of 2018, we needed a law firm that could look out for our mom due to her injuries as well as loss of business. After doing research and meeting with different law firms, we ultimately decided to go with Steven Angles at Adler Giersch. We felt that they had extensive experience in brain injuries and also gave us the most confidence after meeting with the different firms. We worked with Steven Angles (lawyer) and Maritza Moreno-Sanchez (paralegal) from the very beginning and we couldn’t have asked for a better duo during the process. Steven gave great, constructive, and sound advice and knew some of the top specialists in the state when it came to brain injuries. Maritza did a great job in handing all the medical records and keeping track of our mom’s medical care. They were responsive and were always willing to meet with us whether it was virtual or in-person to help answer our questions along the way. However, the journey wasn’t easy. There were ups and downs throughout the process. From start to finish, our mom’s case took about 2.5 years and there were times when we wanted faster resolution.There were many times of great frustration and exhaustion for our family dealing with this situation but in the end Steven and Maritza came through and gave us a result that was better than what we had expected. They made sure to exhaust every resource and every possible avenue to ensure our mom was fairly compensated for her injuries and loss of business. We would highly recommend Steven if you need representation that will fight on your behalf! We cannot thank Steven enough for all of his efforts and hard work! - Rob & Sue

Best Support during a scary time
In July 2018, my husband and I were in a terrible auto accident, I walked away but my husband was life flighted to Harborview, it was a horrific time and as soon as reaching out to Adler Giersch, I only had to focus on the care of my husband. Richard, Steve, their paralegals MaryEllen and Maritza arrived at the hospital and from that moment they handled everything, I MEAN everything. It is 2021 and we are finally able to say that we can breathe again and it is all in thanks to their hard work. I hope one never needs to call them, but if you do, you will find the most hard working, understanding, kind and professional group of people. They were my support and always there at a seconds notice through the maze we had to travel.

Car Accident
I highly recommended Steven Angles at Adler Giersch. I was referred to them by a friend from Church and then to Steven by one of my doctors. He was highly qualified to deal with the type of head injury that I sustained. My mom and I were rear-ended on I-5 in Tacoma. I suffered a traumatic Brain injury with concussion, neck and back issues. It was overwhelming most of the time for me dealing with headaches and pain on a daily basis. On top of that I had to deal with all of the doctor’s appointment and therapy that comes with a car accident. For me it was great having Steven and Maritza handling my case and dealing with the insurance company. They always put my needs and concerns first throughout the entire process. They worked a lot with my husband through the process, because of the pain that I was in most of the time. Gary and I want to thank both Steven and Maritza for all they did to bring my case to a wonderful conclusion. Cheryl S

Incredible lawyer who is always in your corner
My wife was rear-ended back in 2018 which left her with severe back injuries. She and I had been trying to traverse an extremely confusing and intimidating spiderweb of insurance companies and medical lingo before we decided to ultimately pursue legal counsell. Steven was absolutely incredible in helping manage all the claims related to the accident, explaining and implementing the financial logistics of handling all the involved insurance companies, During the year that they represented us on our case, they were absolutely incredible and easy to work with. To echo other reviewers, we very much appreciated their professionalism, transparency and determination. We are extremely grateful to have had Steven represent us and we strongly recommend them and the Adler Giersh firm looking for legal counsel related to personal injury matters.

Warm & Knowledgeable
Steve and Carol have been such an incredible support system for myself and my partner as we traversed the web of confusion with insurance and the claim surrounding a traumatizing bike/car accident that put my partner out of work for a year and had such a wide sweeping impact on both of our lives. They were so kind, informative and thorough and kept us at ease through the entire process and i can't imagine having worked with anyone else.

Beyond Helpful
Steven at Adler Giersch was recommended to me by a good friend who was a client of his. This was my first time ever hiring an attorney and I could not be happier with the experience! Steven and Maritza were efficient, easy to communicate with, and very professional as well as personable. They took the time to explain what was going on behind the scenes each step of the way, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend giving him a call!

Above and beyond
After being involved in a fairly bad car accident, I was searching for a firm that would support me through the process of getting compensated for damages, but treat me as a human being. All of my interactions with Adler Giersch were great, from the first inquiry call to the last settlement conference. Throughout my time working with Steven Angles and his team, they were always willing to answer questions, regardless of how small or big. I never felt like I was simply a number and felt genuinely cared for throughout the entire process. Steven is incredibly knowledgeable and always goes above and beyond. I hope to never need an attorney again, but if I do, Adler Giersch will be the first people I call. I highly recommend this firm, and Steven Angles in particular, if you are looking for capable, caring, and compassionate attorneys to help you through the ramifications of a car accident.

The Best Around
Adler Giersch went above and beyond when it came to letting them handle my car accident settlement. The whole team was dedicated to my health and well-being, but also helping me to get the best settlement possible. We did a lot of leg work on our own, not knowing how difficult it would be to get a response from the insurance company. Our only regret is that we didn't hire them sooner for representation. We were in good hands and it was a pleasure to work with them. They helped direct me to the best professionals for my healing and through the whole process, me getting better was always their main goal. They were a competent team and their history in the area with their connections made them a force to be reckoned with.

Review of Adler-Giersch Law Firm
It’s never easy dealing with the issues that an accident causes, but Steven Angles and Maritza Moreno-Sanchez made the issues painless. All my questions were answered and the outcome very favorable. I would definitely recommend Adler-Giersch to friends and family if ever their expertise were needed.

I recommend him!
Steven was consistently professional, kind, and a strong advocate for me. He remembered the things that I valued in the case/settlement process and held that in the front of his mind. In the end, he was able to represent me in a way that clearly showed what happened and therefore what an appropriate settlement would be...and we got it. Obviously I would have never figured that out on my own!
