David Roth-A Great Attorney
David Roth did an excellent job of representing me in a suit involving a car accident. He far exceeded my expectations in this matter. He always got back to me within a very timely manner when I called his office, and remained very polite and understanding while answering my many questions. He kept me informed throughout the handling of my case, which greatly impressed me as I had never been in an accident previously and was confused about the procedure. I was very satisfied with the results of having my medical bills taken care of and the monetary settlement was more than satisfactory. I would recommend David Roth to anyone seeking a great attorney. He will work as hard for you as he did for me, and if the occasion ever arises again I would not hesitate to call him.

David Roth is a 5 star attorney
David did a wonderful job representing me in an accident case and he didn't back down. He's not only passionate about his clients but the law and injustices. His team member Gavin who works behind the scene has been blessed with the unique ability to pursue any technicalities or options that exist. Gavin gets two thumbs up. Also, David delivers a beautiful closing argument sealing the deal. Cudoos and 5 stars David.

Highly satisfied client
David Roth is one of the most honest, trustworthy, thorough, hardworking & caring lawyers, I've ever encountered. From the beginning of my case to the end, David was researching and mapping out a plan to win my case. My case was complex, and required a lawyer who would go the extra mile. David did that and above. David was so sensitive to my pain and surgery outcomes. He is truly a wonderful human being. I felt so comfortable with David handling my case, knowing that he would fight for me to have the best outcome. I did not worry, knowing my lawyer, David had my back. David was able to get a great settlement. I highly recommend David Roth to anyone looking for a great lawyer, with a caring heart.

Mr. David Roth’s professionalism is unmatched.
From the beginning to the end of my case, he truly took his time and explained in detail, every aspect of my accident. Providing me with amazing and trust worthy health care professionals, that helped me to get back on my feet after my car accident in December of 2017. He was always making time for me to answer any questions I had in timely manner. He always listened to my concerns after the accident and made sure I had the right care. David is very intelligent and truly knowledgeable about personal injury cases. He has a wonderful, professional, compassionate and friendly office team that always knew my name. David was able to exceed my settlement expectations by far. I most definitely recommend David Roth to my friends and family and anyone who reads this review, you will not lose.

Very Grateful!!
I’m so grateful and appreciative for David. Both David and his staff had my back, held my hand, and walked with me throughout the legal claim journey. My injury and recovery was the most vulnerable, challenging and darkest moments in my life. I experienced a lot of personal losses (financially & relationships) during the progression of the claim. It those times I really leaned on him for support and appreciate David’s gentleness, patience, candor, excellent communication (verbal & written) skills, and perseverance. His analytical, research, and creativity skills are top notch. My case is completed and feel that I not only hired an attorney but gained a friend.

David Roth negotiated a large settlement for me.
David Roth represented me in my personal injury automobile accident case. He won and negotiated a large settlement for me.   My injuries were significant, painful and debilitating.  I could not walk, bend over, shower or raise my arm to eat. I had to be hospitalized.  My injuries required both a spinal and shoulder surgery.  Dozens of physical therapy, chiropractic visits several times per week for 1.7 years.    Throughout the entire process David Roth and his legal team were with me every step of the way.   He and his legal team shielded me from the burden of handling medical collectors and dealt with aggressive insurance companies.  This allowed me time to concentrate 100 percent on recovering and healing.  When you or a family member is in an automobile accident you can be confident that David Roth is the best personal injury attorney for your case. David Roth is ranked a Top 10 personal injury lawyer in the state of Washington by the the National Academy of Personal Injury Lawyers.”  I read this and then selected Mr. Roth and his firm to represent me.  It was on of my best decisions. I highly recommend David Roth to my friends and family.  I recommend him to colleagues at Microsoft and Amazon corporations.   As a retired military officer and combat Veteran I recommend David to active duty military and Veteran families.   Howard

Peace of Mind
David Roth's firm was highly recommended to me after efforts to negotiate my auto accident alone. Having never experienced a comparable situation, David's team gave me immediate assurance with professional representation, personal reference to physicians specializing in my medical needs in my geographic area, tracking of my treatments and complete guidance throughout the claim processes. As a result, the firm's management of my case provided a secure and positive resolution I am certain would have not been achieved had I not hired them. I recommend the Law Offices of David S. Roth five + stars!

Personal injury case.
I was referred to Mr. Roth following a car accident where I did receive significant injury. I was receiving numerous calls and pressure to settle by the at fault drivers insurance. By hiring Mr. Roth all of that pressure was immediately stopped. I was allowed to focus on my injury which did result in need for surgery that was not immediately apparent in the initial aftermath of the accident. He held the "sharks at bay" so I did not even need to worry or think about the details of any legal implications. He or his office contacted me when necessary for follow up or collection of information. My only focus was my health and recovery. Mr. Roth kept me informed in clear and concise language to the status of the claim. When it came time to settle he obtained the optimal settlement. During the settlement he keep me informed and provided the financial information I needed around my responsibilities for insurance subjection and any other information I needed for a successful conclusion. From the point of my accident to settlement it was a couple of years due to the nature of the injury and subsequent surgery and Mr. Roth was my advocate throughout in a professional and supportive manner.

Top notch representation
David represented me in my accident claim against Progressive. I was slightly concerned being quite inexperienced with the process, but David and his team were there at every turn. Most impressive was his performance during the arbitration; to put it lightly, David is a gamer! Opposing counsel struggled responding as David laid out a solid case with supporting facts and studies. I was thrilled to have him in my corner!

Slip and fall expertise
David Roth handled my slip and fall case. I've never needed an attorney before and didn't know what to expect. David advised me as to what notes and records to keep, and then took care of the rest, constructing a strong case over the course of my recuperation. In the end, we settled out of court after a fair amount of back and forth between the parties. David was a persistent advocate, and I am extremely satisfied with the results he achieved.

My Auto Accident
My Attorney David Roth is an excellent communicator. I was emailed or talked to throughout the whole process of my auto accident. I was given clear directions on what I needed to fill out and complete. He helped me gather information from my employer, hospitals, massage and physical therapist. He fought for my full settlement and got it! Its nice to know there are still great lawyers out there protecting people that don't/cant navigate this process themselves. Thank you David Roth and Gavin for making this experience a better one.

Mr. David Roth and his team greatly helped me through traffic accident injury case for my family
Mr. David Roth and his team greatly helped me through traffic accident injury case for my family. Probably just like most of average people, I was not familiar at all with traffic accident injury case and how to deal with medical treatment, billing, compensation for loss, settling the case with insurance companies, etc, etc. Mr. Roth helped my family to go through all the hassle. I deeply appreciate for his service and recommend him and his firm!
