Wayne took on both of my claims immediately, being there from start to finish. This helped Wayne and myself win both claims with the best results anyone could hope for.I would recommend Wayne and his staff to anyone with a job injury as they are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Wayne is always well prepared for court and doesn't hesitate to get right to the point and if need be, get in someone's face. Also, thank you again Wayne, your the help that everyone wishes for!

Mr. Lieb took on my Workman’s Comp claim just weeks before the trial because I tried to do the work myself. Handing my claim over to Wayne and his team became my saving grace. Without his expertise, I am certain, my claim would be denied. However with Wayne’s outstanding work, my claim as well as all lost wages were paid. I consulted 2 other attorneys regarding my claim and Wayne was far and above more knowledgable regarding the Workman’s Compensation process.
Michael Pontarolo, Workers compensation Attorney
I endorse this lawyer having tried cases before him when he sat as an Industrial Appeals Judge and as a fellow attorney representing Injured Workers. He is honest , hard working, and very knowledgeable in the area of Workers Compensation. His legal advice and common sense is sought statewide, and his litigation experience is respected by the Department of Labor and Industries, the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and in the Courts at all levels throughout Washington.
