Excellent attorney, great advice
I consulted with Mr. Carlson on a personal injury matter when I was hit by a car in a crosswalk. He was well-versed in the relevant law and kept me informed. I was very satisfied with the results, and I recommend him highly for any legal issue.

Brilliant attorney, highly effective
I had a bizarre case involving fireworks in the middle of winter in Seattle, and Jay effectively helped me through the process of dealing with the situation. He was always available by phone or email whenever I had questions. I never even had to go to court. Jay is an excellent attorney, who gave me helpful, timely advice, and if I need further assistance I will contact him immediately.
