My law firm is a solid workers' compensation and personal injury law firm. For the past 30 plus years, we have exclusively represented underdog employees against the Department of Labor and Industry and corporate giants. The L&I system shortchanges injured workers of our state. I tirelessly advocate for my clients to make sure that they receive every dollar they have coming to them.
I am a native of Seattle and am a member of the King County and Washington State Bar Associations, as well as the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association. I received my law degree from the University of Puget Sound Law School and B.A. degree in psychology from the University of Washington.
When not battling L&I, I windsurf, snowboard, whitewater kayak, hike, camp, fish, golf, and play soccer.
Please, give me a call. I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your case and to give you information to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Languages spoken: Spanish, English

I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Chris for 20 years on companion cases where he has handled the worker's compensation claim and I have handled the third party claim. He is able to obtain superior results for his clients who have been injured on the job by advocating for his clients to ensure they receive full and fair compensation for wage loss, permanent partial disability ratings or long term pensions.
