Kind, intelligent, bulldog of an attorney!
I met Jonathan just over 3 years ago after an incident that required me to seek legal help/support. I was turned away by one law firm and passed along by another law firm into the INCREDIBLY capable hands of Jonathan and his AMAZING team. I couldn't be more grateful that my case landed in the hands of Jonathan. He was kind and considerate while being upfront and honest regarding the legal battle that was ahead of me. But I never once was shaken because I knew Jonathan and his team were standing by side through it all. My case was a complicated one with many parties involved, some of whom were holding stubbornly firm and not accepting responsibility. But Jonathan did not give up or waiver. He persisted and never gave up on me or my case. He uncovered the facts and presented them in an undeniable way which eventually led to a settlement for not only me, but the other victims involved because their lawyers were unable to accomplish the settlement. Where they failed, Jonathan thrived and succeeded. If that doesn't tell you the kind of amazing lawyer he is, I don't know what will! I will never be able to say enough kind words about Jonathan and his team. For 3 years they never made me feel like my case was hopeless, they never made me feel like they were too busy to take my calls/emails and answer my million annoying questions. I always felt like a priority each time I interacted with anyone on Jonathan's team. The end result of my settlement was beyond my expectations and hopes. All thanks to this man and his team!

Pleased Client
When I first met Jonathan it was in a Zoom meeting. He took his time explaining how his practice worked, what I could expect from him and assistants. What the fees would run, who they would be contacting to help solidify my claim. I never felt rushed and the person I am was respected and not condescended to if I lacked understanding. I would recommend Johnathan and his team to anyone who needed legal help.

Excellent experience
After being in a bad car accident, someone recommended I meet with Jonathan. I was so glad I reached out! He listened to what happened and then took over dealing with everything so I could focus on getting better. Not having to fight with insurance companies or negotiate with the 'other side' myself significantly reduced my stress level. Jonathan and his team kept in contact with me throughout the process. Whenever I reached out to them, I had an answer within a day, if not within hours. In the end, Jonathan was able to negotiate a settlement that I was very happy with--and one I know I could not have gotten on my own.

Fantastic Attorney
On the behalf of my wife who was rear ended by a uninsured driver. Jonathan Yousling is a fantastic attorney, when he first met with my wife and I. He was very thorough and precise on what was to be expected regarding the process of my wife rear end accident. From that point he and his staff was on top of their game with making sure my wife received the necessary medical treatment and compensation from our own insurance through out the complete process. Thank You Jonathan Yousling. Thanarat and Josiah Morris

I was able to not worry
I contacted Jonathan and his team at GPL late into ongoing issues I was having following a car wreck. What seems sort of minor at the time later developed into more medical issues. I was at a loss as to how to proceed and frankly didn’t have the energy or time to start working through it all. Right away I was put at ease that Jonathan had my back. He would take it from there. They kept me up to date and advised where they could. He was honest and thorough and upfront. I appreciated all of this. In the end I was happy with the settlement I received and avoided filing lawsuits, which was what I wanted. I would absolutely call him again. His team is amazing and su positive to work with. I’m thankful that I found them!

Complicated Case - Best Result
I met with Jonathan stemming from a loss due to a car accident while on the job. Jonathan and his team listened to my many concerns as we worked our way toward resolution of the third party claim. Nothing about my case was straight forward. Even when I was on track, Jonathan spent time airing out my husband's needs concerning the suit as well. Jonathan and his team working seamlessly with my L&I attorney. Again this was complicated and took time, but Jonathan and his team never gave up hope. They continued to encourage me to focus on getting better while they continued the good fight. I could not have asked for a better person with moral fiber, as well as an advisor during a very difficult time. I know I could call him today with a question and he would respond. There is respect, clear communication, thoroughness and care in how Jonathan operates.

Advocate for Family
Jonathan Yousling is an outstanding, thorough attorney who cares, beyond paper, about the people he is working for. His level of knowledge and zeal for research to learn more about our case was impressive. He helped our family when we didn't know where to turn but knew we had a worthy case. We will forever be thankful for him and his staff who kept us informed through every stage and were committed to seeing it through to the successful end!

Freak Accident: Head/neck/back injuries
Jonathan Yousling is a professional with integrity. He was diligent in discovering all he could about my injury case. He worked hard as my advocate, securing a financial settlement. Jonathan was reassuring and attentive through the process. He is a good listener and honest with his responses. He showed care and concern for my healing and well-being. In his kindness I knew he had my best interests at heart. "Jonathan not only took care of my case - he took care of me." I am grateful! Thank you also to Meagan and Sara for their hard work.

Highly recommend!
Jonathan and his team were so kind and helpful to my husband and me after my husband's car accident. We were unsure whether a lawyer was really needed in our situation since neither one of us had ever had a car accident with injuries before. Thankfully, Jonathan reviewed my husband's case and realized that we needed him to get the correct medical treatment for my husband and to actually get it covered by insurance. We would definitely recommend him and his team for anyone looking for a lawyer. He was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, kept us in the loop as the process went on, and got us a settlement that we were extremely happy with. We would definitely go back to him if we ever needed a lawyer in the future again.

Jonathan Yousling
Jonathan Yousling was recommended by my daughter, after I had an accident in my car, on my way home, November of 2014. He was very helpful, courteous , and very concerned for my health and also getting my car fixed. My own insurance only wanted to pay me $2000 for all the pain. Jonathan was able to get my car fixed, back surgery and physical therapy for this accident. The biggest problem for me was the fact that the last person in the accident, didn't own the vehicle she was driving, was a foreigner, herself as well as the owner of the vehicle didn't have insurance. This meant Jonathan would have to go after my insurance company. Jonathan not only took care of the things stated above, but he and his team worked very had to get pain and suffering moneys, that helped us a lot. If it wasn't for Jonathan, we would still be back at the $2000 figure from my insurance, and still having to have surgery, fix my car, do physical therapy, out of my own pocket. If you have had a auto accident, or any of the many things that he fights for, don't hesitate to call Jonathan Yousling for help. You won't regret it!

Personal Injury
After being seriously injured almost two years ago by an inattentive driver, I was met with insurance companies that seemed only to want to prove I wasn't injured. Jonathon reviewed the facts, took my case, and handled all of the claim details that were quickly beginning to make my life so stressful. He would remind me to let him deal with the stress, and encouraged me to work on taking care of my health. Anytime I had a question or a need, Jonathan and his team were there for me. Had it not been for Jonathan's competent handling of my case, it is doubtful that I would have had the time, energy, or resources to pursue the steps that have put me on the path to recovery. Competent, capable, communicative, committed, and caring - a winning combination all the way around. He's chosen to be one of the good guys. Thank you Jonathan!

Car accident
I was in an accident during an important time in my internship for school and Jonathan was recommended to me. I went in and had a consultation and Jonathan gave me all the regular advice a lawyer does, but then went beyond and wanted to get to know the whole situation and why it was so important to me. Jon and his team took care of me in a timely manner and I feel that he went above and beyond in doing so.

Jonathan Yousling review for auto insurance claim
I contacted the law firm where Jonathan works because my auto insurance wanted me to sign off that everything was resolved when, in fact, it was not. I appreciate all the hard work that Jonathan put in and I would recommend him to family and friends.

Outstanding communication and professional service!
Two years after an automobile accident and not knowing if to seek legal assistance. My wife and I were recommended to Graham Lundberg Peschel through our chiropractor and felt a professional connection from the start. Jonathan Yousling took over my own personal case and helped me step by step until the end. He truly took the stress and burden off of the insurance aspect of the case. It came down to just phone calls and a few conversations with Jonathan to where everytime we talked I felt better and more confident of the direction in which my case was heading. In the end, both my attorney and my wife and I couldn't of been happier with the outcome and of the roads we did not have to travel down to come to the conclusion that we did. I will highly recommended Jonathan Yousling to any friend, family or anonymous individual that is seaking professional legal assistance after getting in an accident and does not know where to began. I know first hand how stressful it can be and how long the process can take. Let Jonathan take your case and help take the burden away from dealing with insurance company's.

Attentive and trustworthy, Jonathan fought to get me the biggest claim possible for my personal injury
Jonathan was very honest and upfront about talking with me about my case. He clearly informed me on procedures and steps I needed to take to ensure that my claim had the best possible outcome. He checked in with me often and always kept me informed on what was going on with my case. I was impressed with how quickly he was able to wrap up my case with a settlement out of court for much more than I was expecting. Overall having Jonathan Yousling represent my personal injury case turned a very unpleasant experience into a much less stressful experience than it would have otherwise been.
