About Niomi

Learn Niomi’s areas of practice.

Niomi was born and spent her early years in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia before her parents emigrated to the United States. Her parents instilled the values of freedom and justice into their children at a young age, leading her to her life’s career.

Niomi earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Washington State University, and accepted a Dean’s Merit Scholarship to DePaul University College of Law in Chicago, Illinois. While in Chicago, Niomi worked for a criminal defense and civil rights firm defending victims of gross injustices. In her third year of law school, Niomi was selected to join the Justice Center for Capital Defense where she helped represent death row inmates as well as defendants charged in high-profile capital cases.

Nearly a decade ago, Niomi returned to Seattle to work for a well-known personal injury law firm, representing people who suffered catastrophic injuries. Niomi opened her own firm, Fisseha Drake PLLC, several years ago, and devotes her practice to helping those seriously injured in medical malpractice cases, maritime and motor vehicle collisions.

She takes great pride and responsibility in aggressively advocating for her clients against
large corporations and insurance companies.

Niomi is admitted to practice in Illinois and Washington, and in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. Niomi has repeatedly been selected as a “Rising Star” by both Washington Super Lawyers and Illinois Super Lawyers between 2015-2020.

She is a member of the Washington State Association for Justice, where she currently serves on the Board of Governors and the Awards Committee. Previously, she served as Chair of the Diversity Committee and on the Board of WSAJ’s Political Action Committee. Niomi is an active member of her community and volunteers with numerous organizations in the Seattle area. She is a former Board Member of OneAmerica, the largest immigrant and refugee rights organization in the northwest, and is an active volunteer at the Ethiopian Community Center in Seattle.

Car Accident
After my car accident I went through an extremely rough patch in life where I continued to make very poor choices. However, Niomi Drake never gave up on me or my case. She went the extra mile to ensure I received what I deserved and and always kept my best interest in mind. I would recommend her to anyone!!!

I couldn't have asked for better representation!
Quite simply, Niomi goes where others are afraid to tread. I was injured while on vacation in Seattle. I knew that it was a preventable injury and negligent on their part but, after making 2-3 calls when I returned home to Chicago, I felt pretty defeated because others seemed to think it was no big deal. Being hurt so far from home, with no one to help felt bad. Getting home and realizing no one seemed to care about the damage done was worse. Then, I came across Niomi Drake's information. I reached out, and even in the midst of peak Covid lockdowns/work from home time, she didn't rush me through explanations, or push me off onto an assistant. She listened to me but, more importantly, she heard me. Every step of the way, she explained what was happening, and continued to touch base with me to make sure I knew I wasn't alone and that she had my back, even from 2000+ miles & 2 time zones away. Niomi was upfront and honest, good or bad, through the whole process. She asked me to trust her to make this right and I never once regretted doing so. 1 year, start to finish. Where others said I shouldn't bother, or that it wasn't worth it, Niomi stood up for me. She bothered. She cared. She made sure the persons who hurt me knew I & my situation were worth it, and then some. After the settlement she even offered advice on how to find help regarding my financial settlement. Several months later, she still checks in time time to say hi. I'd recommend anyone that needs someone to fight for them with empathy, compassion, and a little bit of "take no prisoners" thrown in, call Niomi Drake. It'll be the best thing for you and your case.

"Niomi is an exceptionally brilliant auto accident attorney. She is experienced, dedicated, and kind. I cannot say enough good things about her and her commitment to the legal practice."
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have tried and arbitrated cases with Niomi. I have referred cases to Niomi. And I have no hesitation in saying that she is one of most brilliant young attorneys I have ever worked with. She is not only an accomplished trial lawyer, but a great human being, known both for her advocacy in the courtroom as well as her tireless pro bono and volunteer work outside. Already at a young age, she has recovered huge verdicts and settlements that seasoned attorneys would envy. Despite her success, she remains humble and delightfully "down to earth." She is truly a model all young up and coming attorney should aspire to be. I endorse her in the strongest terms possible."
