About me

Egan is licensed to practice in the states of Washington, Ohio and Kentucky, and is fortunate to actively practice in all three venues. He is principal attorney for Elk & Elk at the Seattle-Tacoma office, and focuses his practice upon pursuing claims for those suffering injury caused by medical negligence, nursing home negligence, as well as trucking and automobile negligence.

Egan began his career at a respected medical malpractice and insurance defense firm, where he gained valuable experience and insight into the manner by which injury claims are evaluated and defended. He also served as Judicial Staff Attorney for the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, assisting Judge Harry Hanna, Judge Leo Spellacy, and former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Francis E. Sweeney. 

Egan is honored to be listed as an Ohio Super Lawyer “Rising Star” for the years of 2010 through 2014, a distinction conferred upon no more than 2.5% of the attorneys in the state.
