Kathryn is by far the best choice for an Attorney.
My husband’s original Attorney had commercials on TV. He needed someone right away and had no idea where to go. He never spoke directly to the Attorney representing him; it was always the paralegal or person just out of school. In a pinch they got him through the immediate issues.
When my husband found Kathryn he switched immediately. She reviewed his case and was able to recover over 3000.00 of back benefits the other firm said was unrecoverable.
She is extremely efficient and makes sure all of your options are pursued even when you have no idea they exist. He has never had to ask, “what about this”? She has helped with other issues related to his injury but not attached to his case. Her expertise is reassuring and stress relieving.
The entire staff are caring, concerned and provide personal attention. They are always super nice and professional with a comforting touch.
We are beyond grateful for her brilliance and proficient service.
She is his Attorney forever!!!

When my husband was critically injured in a motor vehicle accident and airlifted to trauma center 100 miles away, I had many decisions to make quickly while under tremendous stress. Flight-for-life helicopter trips, neurosurgery intensive care unit with round-the-clock one-on-one nursing care, orthopedic surgeons ....I knew the future, whether he lived or not, depended on me making the right decisions, and I knew I needed help. Within 24 hours, Kathryn Potvin was representing my husband and working on his case. From the first time I spoke with her on the phone until the settlement agreement was signed (many months later), Kathryn was always a phone call away and on top of every potential issue. She provided sound advice and guidance through the entire process. The open, available, clear, consistent, reassuring way that Kathryn communicates is also ever present with the entire office staff -- they are stellar! Any question, any concern, any need to vent or rant -- anytime my calls or in-person visits were always welcomed and I got the information I needed. Brilliant, experienced, highly skilled, realistic, kind, compassionate, passionate, personal attention. While no amount of money could ever compensate for the physical and personal injuries suffered or the permanent disabilities that are part of daily life, Kathryn made it possible for us to have a life. We are satisfied with the outcome, and are grateful for the opportunity to have Kathryn and her staff represent us. Absolutely the best choice for a personal injury attorney; Kathryn Potvin has the skills and experience to negotiate with a large global corporation and secure a favorable outcome for her clients.

Kathy Potvin presents well as an Attorney that is ALWAYS going to do her best at all times for the case at hand. She has never judged me, lied to me, dismissed my needs or wants for my case. I am treated with much respect. My case is very convoluded with many roadblocks and controversial medical issues wrapped up in my nightmare case. She is a "Winner” and now as a Partner at Putnam/ Lieb/ Potvin. She has made her mark on the Thurston County Community as A "Star" when things appear to be so very dim and discouraging, Kathy Potvin DIGS in ... representing and winning cases and the Love and Respect of her clients. I know this, as I am probably her worst nightmare of a Case. She is chosen family to me and I am very fortunate that this firm has stuck it out with me and Kathy Potvan is my Attorney FOREVER..She's is "FABULOUS".Check her Out!
