My parents and I were treated like family during the whole process after my accident. From the time he visited me, the day after my accident, to the last meeting where he just asked about my wellbeing. He really cares about clients. We are forever grateful for the time and energy Richard and his team spent on my case. He made my whole process stress free, easy to understand and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Richard provided me with a lifetime of supplemental income to assist with my new handicap. He made sure justice was served. I will always refer Richard to ANYONE needing legal advice, there’s really nobody better. THANK YOU!

A few years ago I was hit in a motor vehicle collision which caused an elbow tendon rupture. I was in a great deal of pain and needed surgery for the injury. At the time I had lost my health insurance, did not have any reserve money and needed to get back to work. I remember our first meeting in his office. It was a load off of my shoulders. Mr. Adler treated me as a friend and looked after me as if I was family. He guided me through the forest and around the despair as well as the potential pitfalls of my case. I could not work for ten and a half months in total, had two surgeries and thousands of dollars of medical bills hanging over my head. Mr. Adler being there to look out for my back relieved much stress and allowed me the time to heal and get back to work. Mr. Adler made the outcome of my case a positive game changer for me. I would never have been able to navigate my case on my own. I would definitely recommend Richard Adler to any person in a similar situation dealing with the turmoil after a motor vehicle collision. Looking back, he treated me with caring and concern as a friend rather than a stranger or acquaintance.

When my husband was rear-ended by a semi truck and suffered a TBI as a result, I had many sleepless nights researching attorneys and interviewing the best results I had found. I was set on this team after seeing the unanimous positive outcomes, and the fact that Richard and his team had more experience with traumatic brain injuries than any other attorney I had found.
It's difficult to put into words just what this team has done for our family. They took care of everything (Insurance, keeping up with doctors, ect.), allowing my husband to just focus on recovery and the difficult process of returning to work.
Richard and MaryEllen kept in constant communication and proved to be completely professional, yet caring. In the end, the case they presented was irrefutable, and resulted in a settlement that exceeded our expectations. As if that wasn't enough, they went out of their way to offer us counsel beyond the settlement of the case. They connected us with a financial adviser, and other survivors who had similar experiences so we wouldn't feel alone in what we were going through.
Richard and his teamed proved to be caring, empathetic, and trustworthy during this process. They also demonstrated professionalism, authority, knowledge, and expertise in both legal and medical matters. I can't recommend Adler Giersch enough.

Richard and Mary Ellen assured me that they would handle my personal injury case and allow me to focus on my healing. I had no idea how instrumental they would be in my healing as well. Three years ago I was rearended by a semi truck, and today I can say I'm doing so much better because of the help Richard and Mary Ellen where there to provide. I'm back to work now and able provide for my family without worrying about the chaos the accident brought into my life. They dealt with the insurance company and kept up with my Dr's throughout all my medical care. The outcome of my case was well beyond what I expected. I am so grateful for what they have done for me and my family.

I was in a car accident in Feb 2013 that resulted in a traumatic brain injury at the peak of my life, both personally and professionally. It was truly devastating and has left me with issues that will likely remain with me for the rest of my life, as my doctors call it my "new norm".
To say it has been an incredibly scary and daunting experience to go through is an understatement, and that's not even including the insurance side of things. I had an attorney first that I quickly became very concerned about. I was then referred to Richard Adler and it's not one bit of an exaggeration for me to say he truly was a godsend! What Richard and his team - MaryEllen Bolden and Arthur Leritz - gave me was a peace of mind to really be able to focus on my lengthy recovery and adjust to my new life, which was absolutely priceless. They are extremely through and prepared me from the beginning for what would be a multi-year process. They were always very patient in fielding and answering all my questions. Nothing can ever give me back the time I lost or right the unexpected wrong turn to my life I was dealt with the accident, but Richard and his team have resolved my case extremely well so I can continue to focus on rebuilding my life.
Their motto is "compassionate counsel, tough advocacy" and that's truly what you get! They aren't just great at the legal side of things, they are immensely knowledgeable about traumatic brain injuries and go above and beyond to passionately care for and educate survivors and their families. They genuinely care about what they do and work so hard to not only help their clients but the community of brain injury survivors at large. Learning about that side of them is what gave me the peace of mind to know I had the right people on my side. They are not just my former legal team but an extended part of my family now.
Finally if you are reading this review, I unfortunately know it means either you or your loved one is dealing with a potentially life altering experience. Know that I have been there - and still am - so my thoughts go out to you. I hope my words help you to at least get a good representation so you too can have a peace of mind while you deal with your recovery and adjustments to your new life.

I was in a serious roll-over accident in July 2013. Truth be told I did not want to hire a lawyer -- I naively thought that someone else was clearly at fault for the accident, I've been paying my insurance for years, and that the insurance companies would treat me fairly. I quickly learned that this is not reality. Richard and his team took on the burden on dealing with insurance so that I could focus on healing. Hiring Richard was the best decision I could have made. He is a class act and I highly recommend working with him.

On October 30, 2012, as the front seat passenger in a pickup truck leaving a North Dakota job site, I received the full impact of another oncoming truck plowing into the front passenger door. Nine days later, I awoke from a medically-induced coma with a feeding tube, collapsed lung, blood clots, broken ankle, spinal injuries and broken ribs. During my 30-day hospital in North Dakota, a friend referred me to Richard Adler of Adler Giersch. Richard, Jacob Gent and their team immediately began working on my case from Seattle, and met with me upon my return home to Washington State. Mine was a complex, difficult case, and I admit, I even unintentionally threw a few roadblocks in their way. Regardless, they powered through the litigation process with expertise and compassion, and successfully negotiated a settlement--sparing me the trauma of reliving the accident in a jury trial. I would wish on no one the experience I endured, which has left me with permanent injuries, but if you have suffered an injury and can settle for nothing but the best representation possible, this is your firm.

In December 2011 I was involved in a drinking and driving accident (vehicle vs. pedestrian). I woke up in the ICU after being hit while walking across the street at 40 MPH. No amount of money will fix the damage that was done to my body but when something like this happens that is all we have. Richard Adler and his team relentlessly fought for my case in every way they could. They kept in constant contact with me to make sure I was involved and comfortable with the process by scheduling regular meetings, phone calls and emails. It was a long road but in the end they did a great job in rectifying the circumstances that happened to me. They were compassionate and hardworking and I felt immediate trust in Richard's ability to represent my case. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend Richard Adler and his team.
