Knowledgeable and Professional
We were very fortunate to have been referred to Brendan by an (insurance) attorney of all things! We are so thankful for how empathetic, very knowledgeable, and very responsive to our insurance issue after multiple burglaries to our small business. Thank you!

Insurance claim representation
We were so fortunate to be referred to Brenden for assistance on an insurance claim. Not only was he very responsive and professional, he was friendly and able to speak to us without the legal jargon (while not talking down to us). This was an emotional and stressful situation for us and we knew quickly how much Brenden cared for us (it felt genuine, rather than just another client to bill his time for). For our situation, we determined the best way to move forward (keeping our not deep pockets in mind) was to have him in the background proving guidance in our communications directly with the insurance company and if needed he could step in and work with them directly. Not only did he make this scary and overwhelming process so much better, but he was sympathetic and understanding and without a doubt was key in us getting a settlement that was more favorable for us. He also has a great laugh. We never questioned our decision to hire Brenden to help us and looking back when writing this, I feel so grateful we found him.

Connection and Results
Brendan did an incredible job of both being empathetic and connected during what was an emotional and difficult case following my husband’s death while at the same time being knowledgeable and persevering to resolve my case to the best conclusion. Brendan was and has remained highly responsive to all communication and had a talent for explaining details in a way that was clear. I appreciate his services greatly.

Owner of construction company
I hired Brendan to help with a number of workmanship claims on a house that I built. He provided expert advice and achieved settlements from all parties way beyond what I expected. I would absolutely recommend him and use him in the future again if needed. You are in good hands with Brendan.

Construction Resolution
Althought my wife specifically dealt with Brendan i was aware of everything that went on on two legal issues we had in Seattle with our new construction and with a vender on the apartments we own I have been involved with numerous legal issues over 30 plus years in real estate and business ownership. Brendan was an extremely good communicator, he always wanted to resolve the issue without having to litigating, and his fees always fair i would strongly recommend anyone to Brendon for legal help Gary Spohr

Brendan is a real planner and thinker. Meaning, most attorneys will file a complaint and then locate an expert. Brendan had the most experienced construction expert in his back pocket and without a massive amount of $$$, we were able to assess our situation in advance, prior to spending a mtn of legal fees. Brendan does not get in the weeds, is a very clear thinker and tries to settle the situation without emotion. I highly recommend Brendan. He also holds a very high level of respect and stature from other high profile attorneys.

Excellent representation, knowledgeable and caring
Brendan Winslow-Nason was enormously helpful in representing me recently. He clearly saw through what was a confusing situation to me, gave thoughtful advice, and protected me from further loss, and from difficulties with my insurance company. His help was immediate, efficiently delivered, and invaluable. Life is much better now, thanks to his expert assistance in my time of need! I highly recommend him to anyone in similar situations.

Excellent customer service and resolve
Brendan did a great job handling my insurance case. I hired Brendan after an insurance claim with a truckload was damaged by my carrier and would not pay the full claim amount my client was seeking. He did a great job negotiating and getting the insurance company to pay the claim in full.
