In the late 90s, I was an organizer during the WTO Protests where I was shot in the face by a nonlethal weapon. Fred Diamondstone stood by my side as I sued the Seattle Police Department for police brutality.
Fred made what could have been a laborious and anxiety-ridden process simple. He was meticulous while being a counselor in the truest sense. His work changed my life. The settlement that we received helped me fund a Masters Degree -- and an apology letter from then Mayor of Seattle!

I feel extremely satisfied to have had Fred represent my family when we were injured in a car accident. My husband and I had pre-existing injuries and as a result the insurance company tried to bully my family to end our medical treatment early and threatened not to pay our medical bills. Fred worked diligently to be sure that not only our medical providers were reimbursed but that we earned a fair settlement for our pain and suffering. Fred was a strong advocate and allay to us in a time of great vulnerability. He even provided support in the form of accompanying my husband and I to doctors visits when our Insurance company tried to challenge our medical treatment! I would recommend Fred Diamondstone to anyone faced with a situation where he has experience. He is very straight forward, knowledgeable and helpful. He is the best of the best.

I went back to Fred once again, after being struck in another car accident. My case is complex, as I have a pre-existing aliment that is strongly affected by sudden impacts. He took the time to figure out where I stood in this case, negotiated a fair settle for both parties, and spoke frankly to me to keep me on a even track. I am satisfied that he earned his fee, and treated me fairly.

I cannot say enough about Fred Diamondstone. He has a passion for fighting injustice and an impeccable reputation in the civil rights community. He is not afraid to go to trial and has the skills and experience to go toe-to-toe with anyone, including the government.
