About Jeffery

Learn Jeffery’s areas of practice.

For more than four decades, Jeffery M. Campiche has successfully represented people severely injured on maritime vessels, in motor vehicle accidents, by unsafe or defective products, and negligent medical providers. Jeff is recognized by his peers for aggressively and successfully representing clients with difficult, complex cases, while maintaining a high degree of professional conduct. Recognized in “Seattle’s Top Lawyers,” Seattle Met Magazine (2010), Jeff Campiche earned ’s “highest possible rating in both legal ability & ethical standards,” and earned Martindale Hubbell’s “Highest Possible 15 Year – Peer Rating in Legal Ability and Ethical Standards – 1996-2011.”

Jeffery has served as the designated counsel for sailors of the Inland Boatmen’s Union of the Pacific, and has represented a number of Masters, Mates and Pilots, and other maritime workers who were seriously or fatally injured. A native of Ilwaco, Washington, the coastal fishing village located at the mouth of the Columbia River, Jeff has practiced law throughout Washington for over 40 years. He was the County Prosecutor of Pacific County from1978-1986.

Jeffery Campiche is licensed to practice in State and Federal Courts in Washington, and has appeared in courtrooms as distant as Alaska, Hawaii, California and New Jersey. He has successfully sued some of the largest manufacturers of defective products in the country which were represented by the nation’s largest insurance companies and law firms.

Civil Rights cases, including the improper use of deadly force, are important in efforts which can instigate important and needed change. Attorney Jeff Campiche represented the family of a young, unarmed high school student named Tommy Le, who was shot in the back and killed by a King County Sheriff’s officer. A cover up ensued by the department and its media relations managers, including a fabricated story that the student had a knife and lunged at the officer. The young man had no knife and was running away from the officer who, rather than deescalating the situation, pointed his gun at him. Outraged citizens and civil rights groups in Western Washington demanded justice. Seattle’s large Asian community and news editors also demanded accountability and change within the King County Sheriff’s department. In May of 2021, the lawsuit was settled by King County for $5 Million. The case was noted as one of the top news stories in the press over 3 and a half years – from the shooting in 2017 until the settlement in 2021.

COMPASSIONATE, CARING and FIERCE
Jeffery Campiche and his team were there for me during one of the darkest times in my life. They helped me get justice in a wrongful death, medical malpractice lawsuit. They were caring and compassionate, yet fierce in fighting to obtain justice for my son. I've never seen people so dedicated. They became like family to me; I will always hold them in the highest regard.

Campiche Law
I have worked with Jeff Campiche and his associates on many levels the past 10 years. I started working with Jeff while I was a Union Steward with the IBU around 2011, at that time I referred countless Mariners that I represented to Jeff when situations arose that made good, powerful legal representation necessary. Jeff and his teams never failed our members. When I needed representation in 2016 for a maritime injury case there was no question that Campiche Law was who I called. I have continued to send Mariners, Friends and anyone else that needs a good, powerful attorney to Jeff. If you are in need of an outstanding litigator for any type of injury, Maritime or otherwise, you can not go wrong with Jeff and his associates.

Skilled and talented trial lawyer
I hired Jeff Campiche when my character, reputation and career were at stake. He dedicated his keen mind and pursued every type of evidence to obtain the truth. He discovered thousands of emails and correspondence, took numerous depositions, and made several motions before the court with lengthy briefs. His ability to cross examine witnesses has no equal among his peers. I had outstanding results and the truth is I sill have an outstanding reputation in the community. I am grateful for his representation. Judge David DeLaittre

"Jeffery is an outstanding and compassionate practitioner. I have worked together with him on a dozen cases and never cease to be impressed with the breadth of his experience and the depth of his knowledge."
Litigation Attorney | Mar 23
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Jeffery is a compassionate, empathetic, and highly talented advocate. He is a master of the courtroom. Jeffery first came into my life when I was a much younger attorney through a series of associations on a variety of civil cases. I struggle even to describe how much I learned from his approach to questioning, strategy, and counseling clients who have suffered and been severely damaged through the negligence of others. Jeffery is a good man and a peerless and unique attorney. He is a true one-off."
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 23
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Jeff is a fantastic trial lawyer. I remember him finding a material piece of evidence that all our experts have neglected in a highly contested product liability case where the defendants were denying liability, and eventually settling that case for a sum that ensured his client was taken care of for the rest of his life. He is a force of nature. I unequivocally endorce Jeff."
