Dan is an amazing person and attorney!
Dan came highly recommended by my physical therapist back in 2011 when my wife and I were involved in a hit and run collision. Dan communicated with us in a thoughtful and caring manner, and demonstrated that he is a very professional, personable, and honest individual. Dan was thorough, clearly walked us through every phase of the process, and we left with a settlement that was fair for all parties involved. I highly recommend Dan Kilpatric if you require the services of a highly competent attorney.

Top Notch personal claim attorney in WA
After working with Dan Kilpatric on a recent personal injury case, I felt I needed to share my experience on here for others to consider if they are looking for a highly professional, ethical, and extremely trustworthy attorney to represent them in any sort of personal injury case. Dan was always very communicative and informative throughout the entire process, and I always felt that my representation by him and his office was in great hands. I had previously utilized Dan's services in a situation years earlier, and I never hestiated or bothered shopping around for another attorney this time around in my recent situation. I just called Dan back as I knew he would do everything he could for me as was the case before! He did! Great attorney, and a great guy all around who is highly reccommended!

Dan was Awesome! I highly recommend him, very professional, knowledgeable, and has access to a great team of experts around him.
Dan handled a personal injury case involving my father. I can't recommend Dan more highly, he was very professional and so patient with my 86 year old father, which led to a favorable settlement. As the former Senate Majority Leader in Washington, I was familiar with lots of first-rate attorneys. After checking around with trial attorney lobbyists, his name kept coming up. I'm so glad we hired Dan to represent my father. He did an outstanding job under very difficult conditions. I would certainly recommend him, and use him again in the future (hopefully I won't need his services). If you're in need of a personal injury attorney, do yourself a favor and hire Dan Kilpatric!
