Unfair civil collections case RESOLVED!
Over the past couple of years I've worked with a two-person team of lawyers, Sam Leonard and Morgan Lake, on a civil collections case which has finally concluded in our favor. Not only did I not remember ever being in the hospital who sent collections after me; up until the subpoena I received no indication that these bills even existed. I felt like someone had dropped a piano on my head. Ultimately the diligence and hard work of Sam Leonard and Morgan Lake resulted in a ruling in our favor on appeal, after a strange initial dismissal of both parties' claims despite finding significant fault with the collections agency's practices. The appeals court released an opinion that is likely to be helpful to the defenses of other people in a similar position as I was. They didn't just do good for me, but their fight had ripple effects that will help other people protect themselves against being taken advantage of as I personally feel that I was. Ultimately an agreement was reached with the parties that took improper legal action against me which left both myself and my lawyers in a better place than when we began our fight. At every step of the way, both Sam and Morgan displayed a quiet confidence in their abilities and as time went on it became clear why. They communicated thoughtfully and clearly every time we spoke which made it easy for a layman like myself to understand the process, my place in it, and the status of the case. They demonstrated thorough knowledge of the law as it pertains to my case. They're not just competent lawyers, they are *good people* who sincerely care about injustice in the world and are making it their mission to fight against. I went from being alone, panicked, and desperate to having two extremely intelligent and professional men on my side. Men with principles, something that I fear is becoming rare in our age. After going through what was already an extremely difficult experience and painful injuries, being sued for (what is to me) a large amount of money that I believed I didn't or shouldn't have owed was incredibly stressful, and frankly frightening. I am not a wealthy man in the financial sense. ...But because of the honorable efforts and endurance of Sam and Morgan I came out of this awful situation in a stronger position than I started--not something I expected, and more than I could realistically have hoped for... Especially in a world where it seems the odds are stacked against the little guy, no matter how righteous his position might be. I am so thankful for their help that I don't think I could ever adequately articulate it. I'm not a poet. What I can say is that these are good men in a corrupted world. I am grateful that the threads of fate, along with my reluctance to roll over to what I feel were unjust actions against me, brought us together. I know that their hearts are in this kind of work and that they want to do more of it so please reach out to them if you are in a similar position to the one I was in. If you are dealing with a civil collection claim against you and believe that those bringing the claim have acted improperly, if you dispute that you actually owe the money, if you feel that you have been taken advantage of and need legal help, don't be afraid to reach out to Sam Leonard or Morgan Lake. Even if you are unable to pay them to retain their services, they may offer you a contingency agreement that takes that burden off of you. If you lose, you lose nothing, but if you win, everyone wins, including others in your position. We shouldn't roll over and accept injustice if we have the means to fight it. With these two men, you do have the means, if you are truly being sued improperly. Don't be a victim. Collections agencies need to operate within the law and do their jobs fairly, and they need to know that if they act improperly, unfairly or unlawfully they will be held accountable. Morgan, Sam: Thank you for standing up for what you believe in and defending me.

First time hiring an attorney
Very thankful I contacted Morgan Lake Law to assist with legal help. My issue was resolved and I would have never been able to navigate the issues on my own. He was great at explaining issues and procedures and it wasn’t nearly as intimidating as I thought the process would be!

Excellence
I recently had the privilege of working with Morgan Lake and cannot speak highly enough of the exemplary legal service provided. From the outset, Morgan Lake demonstrated a profound understanding of my case, coupled with a reassuring demeanor that instantly put me at ease. Throughout the legal process, Morgan Lake exhibited unwavering professionalism, attention to detail, and an impressive depth of knowledge in their field. His strategic approach to my case was both thorough and effective, resulting in a favorable outcome that exceeded my expectations. What truly sets Morgan Lake apart is his genuine dedication to his clients. He took the time to listen to my concerns, provided clear and concise explanations of complex legal matters, and remained accessible and responsive throughout the duration of my case. In addition to his exceptional legal acumen, Morgan Lake displayed a remarkable level of empathy and compassion, making what could have been a stressful experience much more manageable. I wholeheartedly recommend Morgan Lake to anyone in need of legal representation. His commitment to excellence, coupled with his integrity and client-centered approach, make them a standout in the legal profession.

Exceptional Legal Guidance
From the very beginning, Morgan demonstrated a deep understanding of the law and its complexities. His expertise was evident as he effortlessly addressed my concerns. What I appreciated most about Morgan was his upfront and honest approach. He was forthright about his retainer costs and suggested I move forward with my case in small claims rather than him take my money. This level of transparency instilled a great deal of trust, and I felt confident that I was receiving accurate and reliable advice. Not only does Morgan possess an impressive depth of knowledge, but his responsiveness was truly remarkable. He promptly answered my inquiries, leaving no question unanswered. It was evident that he genuinely cared about my case and prioritized providing me with the best possible guidance. I cannot recommend him enough

Seasoned, effective lawyer
Morgan Lake has helped me on a few legal matters, most recently a landlord-tenant dispute. Morgan saw my case go through various procedural challenges, and he stayed by my side and made moves that ultimately delivered a win. Morgan noticed my case could be in a better venue, and he filed a motion to get me there. He then was assertive about how to keep the momentum with discovery and also where to make concessions. He goes the extra mile and is a major difference maker to have him in my corner, as he’s able to weigh my interests, provide objective and seasoned advice, and then execute. There is a reason I keep going back to him: results.

Great Outcome
Morgan handled our case and did a great job. It was a consumer protection case with a local dealership and got everything we asked for. Of course the law was on our side, but Morgan did a great job to guide us through all the details.

Helpful and informative!
An absolutely amazing experience. I've never had to get legal help before. I was getting the run around from all these other places. But this firm actually reached out and was able to help me with my issue. The person I spoke to was respectful, didn't try to rush me, gave me super helpful information. and even went out of his way to let me know things I should be doing. I 10/10 recommend these guys. it's worth it.

Helped us when we were desperate…
Attorney Lake offered advice and counsel on a complex case from another state when no one else was willing to help. Very grateful to find someone who cares about the “little guy” and not just let the corporate bullies cheat every day people. Highly recommend.

10/10 would sue with Mr. Lake again
Mr. Lake helped me and fought for me through a long process with a company. Was awarded more for settlement then we thought would happen because of how difficult the company was being. He pulled out all the legal strategies with this company to make my case stronger than I would have ever thought of using, than again, that's why he's the lawyer and I'm not. Overall: 10/10 would sue with Mr. Lake again.

Dealer Fraud
I contacted Lake Law for help with resolving a multi state scheme that ended up involving a giant car dealer, a local dealership, and a bank. The dealership’s scam left me in a huge hole financially. I couldn’t register my vehicle or drive it without getting pulled over by the police (it happened). I couldn’t even sell the car to move on with my life. I was stuck. It was a nightmare. Attorney Lake explained what laws were violated and provided me with my options. After giving me his assessment of the likely outcomes for my case, Lake went out an exceeded them. LAKE LAW made a complicated mess simple and I won.

Best consumer protection attorney in the PNW
I was very nervous engaging an attorney for an issue I was having, despite believing I had a strong case. From the very first call, Attorney Lake put my mind at ease and had my back. He is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and capable attorney who puts his clients before himself. I was amazed at the amount of research and work he did for me, the time he spent explaining the law to me without charging additional fees, and the incredible outcome he got for me. Attorney Lake is very good at what he does and very passionate about helping the little guy. If I ever need a personal attorney in the Seattle area again, I know exactly where to go.

Vehicle Consumer Protection
Morgan Lake came through for me in my time of need. He was able to handle my case exceptionally well in the area of consumer protection stemming from an out-of-state motor vehicle purchase. Morgan continuously checked in with me and provided me with numerous updates as my case progressed. Ultimately, we came away with a BIG WIN $$$ for the good guys. If you have been wronged in this area to include bank fraud, Call Morgan Lake.

Best defense Attorney!
Morgan represented me in a legal dispute and was able to get the case dismissed. Hiring him was a great decision. I had peace of mind while he took care of everything! I didn’t even have to appear in court! I’m so grateful.

Generous and very helpful
Lake reached out to offer consultation on a fraud case I was going to small claims for, gave me a TON of concise info, legal code, and advice for evidence to compile, even though I wasn’t seeking a lawyer. He was the first person I could actually get a hold of for advice, didn’t try to sell me on services, just gave up time out of his own day to help me seek Justice. I would highly recommend him for any case relating to consumer protection, he gave me a lot of hope within a difficult to navigate legal system.
