About Andrew

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    35%
    Being injured in a car accident can be one of the most devastating things you can go through. Dealing with insurance companies on top of everything can be even worse. I take away the insurance company and allow my clients to fully heal before I start trying to settle their case.

    14 years

  2. Personal injury
    35%
    I have represented many clients who have been injured in car accidents, bike accidents, motorcycle accidents, premises liability actions, and pedestrian accidents. I know how to present your best case to the insurance company and know what your case is worth in court and what a good offer from the insurance company should be. I worked for a very successful personal injury law firm in downtown Seattle for multiple years before transitioning to my own practice six years ago.

    14 years

  3. Admiralty and maritime
    10%
    Being injured while working on a boat is just like being injured in a car accident, in terms of insurance. This means that there is no workers compensation on boating accident while working out in the sea, and there is federal jurisdiction not state. Boating injuries can be devastating injuries that can be permanent and life altering.

    14 years

  4. Insurance
    10%
    Insurance companies can be some of the worst people to deal with and they can be nice while doing it offering nothing for your personal injury case. I neutralize their no offers, low offers, and threats not to provide money for more treatment you need.

    14 years

  5. Trucking accident
    10%
    Trucking accident are injuries where people are struck by semi trucks. Semi trucks are represented by giant insurance companies and their own response teams for their business that often are on scene before police to "clean up the scene'". These can be devastating injuries and hard to fight. You may be entitled to long term care and monthly payments for the rest of your life.

    14 years

I represent clients who have been injured by the negligence of someone else either in a car accident, bike accident, motorcycle accident, or by some other negligent act. You need someone who is going to stand up to the insurance companies and demand what is rightfully yours. If you do not bring a case, you are only saving the insurance company money and not saving the defendant any money, as their rates are going up no matter if you bring a personal injury claim for damages or not. 

 

Hiring me does not necessarily mean trial, as 99% of case do not go to trial, but it does mean that you are maximizing the offer from the insurance company for your personal injury claim. I am paid out of the settlmenet a contingency fee, so that means no up  front costs to you and I am paid a percentage of the settlement.

 

I offer free consultations so please do not hesitate to call me about your personal injury case.

I would absolutely recommend hiring Andrew Cherin!
Andrew was able to settle my claim at the maximum amount and worked hard to negotiate medical bills so the settlement portion directly paid out to me was maximized as much as possible. I received my settlement check in the mail in a timely manner and would def recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a reputable, respectful & consistent attorney to represent them in their personal injury case! I had gone through 2 different personal injury attorneys for this accident who lacked attentiveness and were poor communicators, so I was on the hunt for a personal injury attorney who could meet my needs. I am so grateful to have found/hired Andrew to represent me. I had a very complicated injury case and often ran into circumstances that were difficult to navigate on my own. Andrew provided me with great direction, his communication is absolutely on point, I don't think I ever had to wait more than 2 days for a response via email. He always answered all of my questions and at times when my inquiries were things he had not dealt with before, he always took the time to investigate them further to help answer them the best he could/provide me with needed resources.

Thanks, Andrew!
I was involved in a car accident where the other driver was found 100% at fault. Unfortunately, I needed extensive treatment on my sternum, neck, and knee in order to recover from the impact. I also needed a lawyer! Andrew came highly recommended from one of my care providers and he didn't disappoint. He checked in during my treatment period with updates on my case and settled the claim quickly after treatment ended. No auto accident is stress-free but Andrew made the claim process simple by requiring little of my time and effort. He was able to settle for an amount that ensures I am comfortable if I need to seek treatment in the future which was my number one concern going in. If you're in need of personal injury representation, hire Andrew Cherin.

2 cases handled professionally and timely
Andrew truly does look out for his clients. We initially hired him for my husbands horrible rear-end accident where our primary vehicle got totaled. My husbands back has never been the same but Andrew helped educate us, advise us, and listened to all our concerns. Never having dealt with this type of situation before, he was a patient and empathetic attorney to have on our side. He was honest when maybe we weren't thinking logically and when he didn't have an immediate answer he researched or confirmed his thoughts with time considered and knew how to deliver appropriate messages. Because of the success and experience with our first case for my husband, we hired him again when I was involved as the driver and sideswiped by another driver not paying attention. Horrified and upset that we were yet in another situation like this, he again took care of our family with care and patience. I say patience because I micromanage everything due to my OCD. We have been honored and blessed that he took on each of our cases and forever grateful. Thank you Andrew!

Andrew Cherin - The Best Choice!
This is the first time I have had to hire an attorney. I was referred to Andrew by a trusted friend. I had spent several months trying on my own to negotiate a fair settlement with an insurance company, but was getting nowhere. Although Andrew's office is a considerable distance from my home, he met me at a convenient location, explained everything clearly, and helped settle my case quickly and fairly. Andrew must have some special tricks up his sleeve because he was not only able to secure a larger settlement than I could on my own, but he also got my insurance company to accept a reduced reimbursement for my PIP. If you must hire an attorney, Andrew Cherin is the one to hire!

Life saver for a complicated year
I had my first 2016 car accident in March and contacted Andrew about it per my chiropractor's recommendation. Unfortunately, he couldn't represent me on that one, since it happened in Canada, but when I got hit again in April and AGAIN in October (c'mon, Seattle drivers! Learn to check your mirrors! Three not-at-fault accidents caused by WA drivers within a year!? No wonder my insurance premium jumped so high upon moving here!), Andrew came to the rescue. I was overwhelmed with being injured and unable to do the activities that keep me sane. I HATE dealing with insurance companies. It would've been unbelievably complicated for me to take care of, given how close together the accidents happened, and Andrew took care of everything. I ended up with better settlement payouts than I expected and am finally feeling like my life can return to normal. I've recommended him to friends and clients who have also been recent victims of accidents, and I will continue to recommend him in this city of inattentive drivers as long as I know people here.

Best dude in town
Andrew is awesome. If you're needing personal injury law help, Andrew's the best dude in town. He provided very clear steps for what I needed taken care of with my claim and was always courteous and truly demonstrated a stand out integrity. He made my entire car accident stress free and was with me every step of the way. Andrew negotiated a great settlement package and I plan on advocating his service to anyone needing personal injury law assistance.

Excellent Decision
I've dealt with only one other injury case years ago and opted to handle it myself. It was such a headache and ended up having to pay a decent amount out of pocket anyways. This time I chose to use Andrew Cherin and am definitely glad I did. He took care of absolutely everything! Being a busy business professional, this was beyond important to me as I did not have the time nor patience to deal with the back and forth I was given the last time. I was treated right away, my vehicle was repaired immediately, no out of pocket expenses for my rental car AND he even had the insurance company write me a check that I wasn't even expecting. It is with my sincere pleasure that I highly recommend Andrew Cherin for any personal injury situation you may have; no matter how small or large it may be.

DUI
A little over a year ago I was cited for what I felt like was a very questionable Dui and Going through this process was extremely NERVE-RACKING! I had no hope and pretty much felt like my life was over. I began the search for an attorney and was referred to Andrew by a family friend. Andrew reviewed my case an agreed that my Dui was indeed very questionable. He eased my mind going over my case with me as well as the entire process and assured that he would fight for me in court. Not only did he fight for me in court, he had my case thrown out! I don’t know what I would have done with a Dui but I know I no longer have to worry because of Andrew. Thanks!

Thank you Andrew!
Andrew got my Dui case reduced to a lesser charge of reckless driving. His diligence and persistence was the difference in my case. He was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had and kept me informed throughout the whole process. He also saved me a lot of money and stress. It feels great to know I now have a trustworthy lawyer who has my back. I highly recommend Andrew.

Thank god for andrew
Before i hired Andrew I was dealing with horribke back and nerve pain, the constant lies and denials to repay out of pocket expenses took their toll on me, without Andrew i dont know where i would be, working full time in horrific pain is bad enough and dealing with insurance company is almost as bad.

Great Lawyer
Andrew has been a big help in both for my business as well as personal legal issues. He has saved me thousands and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy lawyer.

Quick and professional service
Andrew displayed a amazing amount of knowledge reguarding all problems that I brought to him. He had prompt responses and provided quick a perfessional service.

Very Smooth Process
I was in an accident and a friend of mine referred me to Andrew. He was very knowledgable and made the process so smooth. Then my boyfriend was plowed into by someone who ran a red light and Andrew was able to take care of all the details. Believe me, when you are in an accident and worried about recovering and worried about replacing your car, the last thing you want to do is deal with insurance companies and think about paperwork and those details. Andrew was a huge help to take a lot of stress off our shoulders!
