I fractured my tailbone and suffered some other injuries after being hit by a car this summer while riding my bike. After receiving some misleading communication from the at-fault party's insurance, I contacted a few attorneys for some perspective. Stacie was the only attorney I spoke with who clearly took the time to understand my concerns, walk me through my options, and explain the insurance and legal jargon to me. Our initial phone consultation lasted almost an hour--Stacie was patient, informative, and kind even before I hired her as my attorney. She even met with me in my home because I was unable to travel due to my injuries at the time. Throughout the process, Stacie was extremely honest in giving me perspective on my case and helping me understand my rights. She was always quick to respond to questions or confusion I had about the claim process and made sure I was getting the treatments I needed to manage my pain and heal my injuries. She definitely became a friend and mentor during my healing process. Thanks to Stacie, I was able to receive my settlement earlier than anticipated, and Stacie has continued to make herself available as I finish my treatments. I am so grateful to have the resources I needed to heal properly, and also to be able to pay off some prior debts with my settlement!
Stacie connects with her clients on a human level and fights hard for them to ensure they get the compensation and clarity they deserve. I respect her strong bicycle advocacy and appreciate her supportive professional working style. Thank you, Stacie!

I was recommended to Stacie after I was run over by a Metro bus whilst riding my bike, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Before I hired her, I attempted to handle the claim myself and it was a complete nightmare. Metro was putting all the burden of recovery on me and made me continually jump through hoops in order to frustrate me and make me go away. Dealing with them was like having a part time job in of itself.
When I decided it was time for professional help, a friend recommended Stacie to me and she lifted all the burden of the accident off my shoulders. Working with her allowed me to focus on my physical recovery and gave me time to get back to normal life. Any loop Metro threw at me from that point forward was no longer my problem. Stacie handled all their BS for me.
Due the length of time for my physical recovery, I was with Stacie for quite some time. Throughout the process Stacie gave me consistent updates on her side of things. She would also check in on recovery and helped defer payment with a practitioner until after I had received my settlement.
When it came time to submit a claim, Metro twice low balled us and forced us into to arbitration. They were also claiming some of my treatments used were invalid and they weren't going to compensate them. She was able to circumvent all their tactics and I ended up walking away with double of what I would have received pre-arbitration.
Besides her legal skills, Stacie is also very kind and was genuinely concerned for my wellbeing through the process.
If you are in any sort of bicycle related accident in Seattle, I don't think there is any better Lawyer to represent you than Stacie. You won't regret it!

I hired Stacie Bain to represent my case after being struck by a car while riding my bicycle. It was clearly the best decision I made in an otherwise dreadful situation. Stacie is at all times professional, compassionate and a tenacious advocate for her client - me! I could not be more pleased with her representation of my case or the settlement I received. I wholeheartedly recommend Stacie Bain to represent your personal injury case!

I worked with Stacie on a difficult personal injury case involving a disputed bicycle accident. She was awesome! I was extremely impressed with her knowledge, her compassion, her command of the relevant laws, and her drive. She is an exceptional personal injury lawyer, especially when it comes to pedestrian and bicycle accident cases. It would be impossible for me to give her a stronger endorsement. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Stacie on case last year: she is an excellent advocate, a delight to work with. She was on top of all aspects of her client’s case, knew the law, and was competent and efficient. This was alloyed with a rare mixture of compassion and tenacity. She could really turn up the heat when needed, but always maintained her professionalism with opposing counsel, so personality never got in the way of what was best for her client. As a result, we were able to get a great result in a challenging case. Stacie is many things: proud mother, caring counselor, skilled advocate. Above all, she is a delightful person, wonderful colleague, with a sure touch with people, an unpretentious grace, and great sense of humor. She is a force to be reckoned with. She has expertise in cycling accidents, so if you’re looking for a lawyer who cares about your bicycle injury and has the passion to get the job done, look no further.
