Dave took a case against my general contractor after the contractor dug my lot too deep and then built my house without proper drainage or a moisture barrier, causing basement flooding only two months after construction was completed. Dave's daily dedication, effective and solid research, understanding of detailed Washington construction law, and ability to work with all other attorneys ensured I had the strongest case possible. We settled without having to go to court and I couldn't have been more satisfied with the outcome. Great effort throughout!

I hired David Von Beck for my personal property damage for a claim against an insurance company. I was very disappointed in the services What Levy-Von Beck & Associates provided.
There was not any effort made by him at all. I lost time and money.

On April 30, 2015 I was involved in the largest fire in West Seattle history. 3 houses, including mine, burned to the ground. Besides my actual loss, I was involved in a insurance nightmare with Allstate. Allstate had insured me for 28 years, and I had the best policy possible. Yet, they only were willing to reimbursement 1/2 the cost the rebuild. I wasn't sure if I wanted to incur the cost of hiring a lawyer or trust my insurance company to do what was right by me. I was in the bind of not trusting my insurance company and not trusting lawyers. I was at a loss as to what to do, and interviewed several lawyers, at the advice of my lawyer friends. Dave was my top pick because of his experience and his cost. He was positive, knowledgeable, open to suggestions and feedback, ethical, timely and aggressive. I always felt assured he was on top of things, and he put up the best legal arguments possible on our behalf. I would more than highly recommend him...his years of experience, and ethics give lawyers a good name.

Dave von Beck was recommended to us by the president of Construction Dispute Resolution in Seattle as a particularly smart and aggressive attorney. We found this to be accurate.
This was the attorney we needed for what we felt was a difficult case. We had experienced the nightmare contractor; issues with accounting, multiple damages/defects, claims that work was not within scope and not honoring the promised discount. The contractor placed much effort into sidestepping issues and freely fabricated stories in sworn statements.
Nonetheless, Dave and associate Seth Chastain ultimately obtained a signed settlement in which the contractor agreed to the cost required to fix all their damages and complete the project. This statement was instrumental in obtaining a settlement from the contractor’s insurance carriers which indeed covered all costs.
The case was successfully resolved without the time and stress of arbitration and trial.
We would highly recommend Levy – von Beck & Associates.

We were involved as named participants in a class action suit . Dave went above and beyond what was
expected of a lawyer. Calls were returned promptly and we were kept up to date with phone calls, emails
and mail. He even visited us at our home several times. He was professional at the depositions,
and all the hearings before the court.
Two years plus and Dave put his firm and himself financially on the line, never taking a dime from us or
any of the other litigants. And I am sure that his out of pocket costs were extremely high considering
he was fighting a multimillion dollar corporation with money to burn. Our outcome was favorable. I believe
this was because Dave never gave up. Even when he was told no by the court he continued to fight .
It was an uphill battle but Dave persisted and we won our lawsuit with enough money to cover the costs of
repair to our home. But it did not stop there. When the suit was settled Dave negotiated with several
contractors to get a fair price to fix the 1000 plus homes involved in this lawsuit.
Both my husband and I would highly recommend Dave to help you in your legal conflicts

I was referred to Dave by a mutual friend who described his performance for her as "walking on water." He was as good as her word. I had a dispute with a very large insurance company over coverage and Dave turned them totally around. He pointed out flaws in their analysis, performance under the insurance statutes and the results of their own investigation. For a modest fee, he turned their small offer of settlement into a significant five figure result. I have used many lawyers over my years of business and have never dealt with anyone who was more effective and efficient.

David represented the residents of my community in a class action suit.
Some reasons for you to select David to represent you...
...if you want your lawyer to be smarter than their lawyers
...if you want your lawyer to work harder than their lawyers
...if you want your lawyer to be creative and never-say-die
...if you want your lawyer to treat you with respect and keep you fully engaged and informed.

I attended several presentations given by Mr. Von Beck who handled a large class action suit for my community. He was absolutely wonderful in his knowledge of our situation and clear and concise when answering any questions anyone had. We were kept well informed all through the whole process and I am thrilled at the outcome!

Dave does not give up on his clients. He is an excellent communicator, patient beyond belief, and not afraid to go up against a very large corporation. We were fortunate to have this trustworthy, knowledgeable person and his team on our side.

David knows the law, is smart, hard working, trustworthy, and empathetic; in other words, a full spectrum lawyer.
He obtained a multi-million dollar settlement for us from a very difficult opponent: David slew Goliath!.
His discovery in the case was truly an outstanding effort. His firm and support staff were also of the highest quality. David is the unusual "good-guy" lawyer.
