French Bulldog Case
Evan Oshan was both professional and zealous in handling my case. We were able to achieve an amicable settlement in a timely manner. He went above and beyond the call of duty and was able to harness public awareness for our puppies. We appreciate all his efforts and thank him.

Car accident
In 2017 I was in a car accident the really change my life do to the fact that i can't really do activities that I use because of this accident. Having Evan Oshan as my lawyer made me feel better because Evan Oshan really fought for me like he was in a boxing match. he was very direct and knows what he want for his client and what they deserve. Even if it took a while in the end we got what we wanted. I would definitely recommend and use evan again because he knows what his really doing in law and made me feel like family and he was easy to talk to. Thanks again Evan your the man!

Personal Injury Claim
Evan Oshan represented me in a personal injury claim from a car accident, He is very professional and a top notch negotiator and will get the most from your claim as he possibly can. The process took a little longer than I expected but the end result was worth it. I would use him again and recommend him to anyone looking for solid representation from someone that doesn’t pass you off to one of his colleagues but handles it himself.

Superior Legal Representation for Personal Injury due to Auto Accident
Rear ended with minimal property damage to my vehicle (Feb 2017). I did sustain injuries such as whiplash, muscle soreness and strain in both shoulders and lower back. My treatment consisted of chiropractic care, massage therapy and received facet injections in shoulder/back. I had an MRI done, which diagnosed a slipped disc as a result of the accident. The insurance company of the defendant would not accept liability even though he was issued a citation. They tried to make a case that the low impact collision didn't cause my injuries. Upon returning back to health in late Sept 2017 we issued a Demand Letter for medical compensation and pain & suffering. The defendant's insurance company did not respond and at this point weren't accepting liability. I had to go through an Independent Medical Exam that dragged my case along slowly. Evan Oshan still had all the confidence that my case would come to a positive outcome if we just played their game and hung in there. Evan his co-counsel (i.e. Joshua Brumley, Lew Humiston, and David Brower) fought my case doggedly and filed a lawsuit, which opened the lines of communication with the insurance company's defense attorney immediately. I was thoroughly prepared by my attorney when I was to be subpoenaed during the discovery process and wasn't that nervous. Evan calls me less than a week after and lets me know that the insurance company is ready for settlement and is offering their policy limit for damages. It was a long time coming, but definitely worth the wait! I highly recommend Evan Oshan & Associates a Winning Combination! Thank you! Thanks for your assistance and always giving me the confidence that I chose the right person to represent my case. There we’re times that I wasn’t too pleased because the defendant wasn’t willing to accept liability when it was clearly obvious. You and your counsel let me know that this would be the norm with Geico being stringent. I’m thankful I contacted you right away as there would be no way I could’ve did this on my own. I was apprehensive early on because I felt that we could’ve had better communication. I believe you told me that the paralegal you originally had working on my case wasn’t performing adequately. Working with David Browner, Joshua Brumley, and Lew Humidton was a blessing! Good luck in your upcoming cases and I will gladly write a highly recommended and positive review about legal representation with Oshan & Associates!!!!

Hit In Parking Lot
Back in 2015 I was sitting in my parked truck in a store parking lot and was hit by a car coming through the parking lot quickly. The impact jerked my neck and I had an instant headache. I contacted the other driver and we exchanged information, The police in Bellevue don't respond to parking lot accidents - so no accident report. One of my family members used Evan before and had great results, so I went and spoke with him. He immediately wanted to help get me medical attention for my injuries, He only cared about getting me better at that point. Once I was done treating he got real with me, after the MRI and the years of treatment he asked what I wanted out of the case as compensation for my loss. He then said "before you answer, I would suggest that we go after the policy limits" - so thats what he did and won!! He also got my own insurance company to waive paying back PIP. Evan is a professional attorney - and has become a friend as well. If you want a lawyer that can handle business, this is your man.

traffic light accident
I was waiting at a traffic light, the light turned green and the driver behind me gunned it like nobody was there. My wife and I decided not to call the police because the gentleman had insurance and seemed on the up and up. That night I couldn't sleep, I cried in pain and went to the ER. The doctor told me that 'soft tissue injury symptoms' can take hours and sometime days "before they rear their ugly heads". Evan was recommended to me by a friend at work. He immediately told me what to do and covered my medical expenses until he won the case. Evan is very easy going and easy to work with, he handles everything from start to finish. I like to talk to him but I feel that I could have only spoke with him the day I signed him as my attorney and the day I picked up my check. 100% hassle free

Auto Incident
This was my first time needing a lawyer to defend me. My family and I were rear-ended by a distracted driver. We called emergency services and immediately sought medical attention, but the insurance companies and hospitals kept denying our claim. We looked for an attorney and found Evan. Evan was quick to set us up with the doctors we needed, and get the case moving. He was often available to answer questions, or he called back if needed. There was even a time one of the providers was threatening to send our fees to collections because they refused to link the treatment to the auto accident, and Evan was quick to step in and defend us. We ended up with a fair settlement, and none of my fears of large debts from doctor's bills at the start of the case happened. All that being said, again this was my first time interacting with an attorney. I was hoping for more active guidance through the process. The lack of at least a monthly check-in sometimes made me feel in the dark. Maybe the need for a client to be proactive in communicating is just standard practice though. In the end, we're happy with the outcome. Evan Oshan is a great attorney to choose. Evan also made sure our care providers were paid in full, which was very important to us. The people who helped us worked hard, and I was pleased to hear they were well taken care of.

I had no idea about the Washington laws I called a bunch of attorneys in California none of them wanted to hatch it until one of them gave me Evan oshan name. Evan ocean did everything for us he got us doctors appointments he really took care of us and no money out of pocket. He got our case settled fairly fast and our payment pretty quick. Thank you Evan Oshan for helping my family both in Washington and in California.

Evan has represented me on 3 cases and a countless friends of mine. This guy doesn't play games, he will call you back @ 10 or 11 at night working your case. If you ever have a relevant question, he will make time for you regardless of where he is on the globe. Consult Evan before you look anywhere else, he's like an attack dog with a bunch of attack dog friends "if it comes to that". Know this, he is an Alpha leader and only cares about you from beginning to end.

Excellent Attorney Who Will Get Your Case Settled Over & Above Your Expectations.
Mr. Evan Oshan is an excellent Attorney who is barred in both WA & New York. My personal injury case took many years to settle but in the end it was well worth the wait.​ He definitely knows how to think out of the box in utilizing all available services that will work to his client's advantage. He won't just compromise & settle for less in order to save time & just prematurely close out the case. He is an expert attorney when it comes to knowing how to negotiate with the Insurance Companies/Adjusters. He is not a lazy attorney & hence will go the extra mile for his clients. Mr. Oshan's legal services far exceeded my initial expectations--& so I would definitely employ his legal services again. Thanks so much, Evan.

Excellent Service.
Mr. Oshan is a fantastic lawyer that stayed in touch with me throughout the entire process. I hired him after 2 other lawyers didn't take my case. I heard of him through a friend of mine who also has gotten help from Mr. Oshan. Needless to say, he took care of me just like he took care of my friend and I was rewarded a nice sum for my pain and suffering claim. Thank you Evan! I will recommend you to anyone that needs help from a lawyer!

Christmas morning accident
Christmas morning we were parked on the shoulder of a exit ramp, I was looking for gift card, 30 feet from the stop sign and 3 feet from the fog line. I was the passenger with a seatbelt on bent over looking for that damn gift card and all of sudden we were rear ended at 55 miles per hour by a drunk driver. It was horrible but the worst part of it was my back. After speaking to his insurance company I knew I was going to have to hire a attorney. After interviewing several attorneys I found EvanI and I knew I was going to hire him. It's been a pleasant experience. He is a diligent Attorney and he kept me informed of any and all changes. He had to deal with three insurance company's, which is amazing! I applaud his resolve and I can't thank him enough. He won a full settlement from each of the three insurance company's involved. Evan went to bat for me every time I needed him to! If you are interviewing attorneys contact Evan Oshan, you won't be disappointed!

Great results in a super challenging situation.
Evan Oshan worked with me on two auto accident cases that were tough. In both cases, I will now receive a settlement. What made the cases tough, surprisingly, was my insurance company. They took an adversarial posture with me, their client, in both cases where I was not at fault. They kept saying my treatments were not medically necessary--as if I had time to see practitioners if there was no pain. Evan persevered and advocated for my interests throughout this company'S many delays and obstacles. In one case, over 3.5 years. Finally, with a personnel change the company began to work with us. One of the auto accidents was in New York and Evan has the advantage of being able to practice in NY and WA. A plus! He continues to advocate to get all of the practitioners who helped me get paid, which should be done soon. He's determined to keep going until the job is done. I'd recommend him to others.

I suffered injuries due to being hit by a car as a pedestrian. I was not getting a response for the pain and suffering claim from the drivers insurance company so I hired Evan Oshan. Evan was able to settle the claim which exceeded my expectations. To anyone who is looking for an attorney to represent them in a Personal Injury claim I highly recommend Evan. I am confident you will appreciate his expertise.
