Efficient, Friendly, & Cares
Chris helped me out a lot by taking on a case to help me get a settlement from a personal injury lawsuit. He was great at keeping in touch, and letting me know what was going on throughout the case. He was very thorough in his work, informative, knowledgeable and able to answer any of my questions, as well as addressing my concerns throughout the process. I highly recommend Mr. Jackman.

Excellence at it's finest!
Chris Jackman worked for 2 years on a dental malpractice case for our daughter. He was extremely involved and dedicated to helping us settle our case fairly. We were extremely happy with his knowledge, patience, and professional attitude through the entire process. We highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a go getter.

BEST PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN SEATTLE
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Mr. Jackman . Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Mr. Jackman . Throughout my case, he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. Upon settlement of my case, I felt that it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Jackman did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been as smooth and comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, I was kept informed of the progress, promises were maintained, copies of communication between Jackman lawfirm and the defendants representatives were always sent to me...I could not have asked for more! I thank and commend Chris Jackman and his team for truly being For the People!!

An attorney that genuinely puts his clients best interest at heart!
I hired Chris Jackman roughly 2-3 years ago. He is hands down the easiest attorney to talk to with a lot of patience. He genuinely cares about his clients like family. I feel he is a great lawyer after my experience with a highlly stressful legal matter for his consistency, loyalty and encouragement. Never any arrogance, always trustworthy with integrity and genuine care for his clients to do his very best for the best outcome. I unfortunately realized later on that Chris was a blessing to me after a second opinion taught me a huge lesson that the grass is NOT greener on the other side, in fact the grass was dried out and brown! Go with your gut because Chris Jackman is not only a good lawyer but a good person overall, and these days that's rare!.

Great attorney!
My wife and I hired Chris to handle her TBI case last October after our first attorney dropped the ball. He met with us on a Sunday for several hours and really took the time to understand the situation. After we hired him he was always available via email or phone and worked tirelessly on the case. We just settled for above policy limits and my wife is on the mend. Couldn't have done it with out Chris, a great attorney and more importantly, a great person!

Caring, Compassionate, Professional
Chris helped me with a slip and fall case. He is a very compassionate and made me feel he truly believed in me. He is highly motivated and straight forward. Very thorough communication throughout the case. He is a man of his word and much more. I would hire Chris in a heartbeat should I every need an attorney in the future. Very professional, reliable and trustworthy. Makes certain you are taken care of. Can't say enough to thank but thank you for everything Chris. Your going places and everyone should be lucky enough as I to have you as their Attorney.

More than a lawyer....a friend.
I just want to say thank you to my laywer Chris Jackman. It was a long hard battle but he came through for me. He was there every step of the way for years, listened to my conserns and helped me on other problems. If he didnt know the answer or didnt think he was the right person for the job he got me in contact with the right people and followed up to make sure everything was ok. He went above and beond in his job as my laywer and became a good friend. On a scale from 1 to 10 i would give him a 20. He not only fought for me he took the time to explain everything to me. He picked me up to to go to court or meetings if i couldnt get there on my own, checked on me through my treatment and kept me informed every step of the way. He is truly a gem in a world where lawyers look at you and either see dollar signs ( a chance to make a quick buck) or a hopeless case because it would take too much effort on there part. He sees you as a person who was hurt, wronged and will do eveeything in his power to help you. I would defently recomened him to everyone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Best Attorney in Seattle!
I contacted Chris to revamp my parenting plan. From day one Chris was very transparent about how he was going to help me. Being the father in the case we knew it would be an uphill battle. Chris was spot on with filing motions when we needed to and making sure that during trial the facts came out. I will always reach out to Chris when I am in need of an attorney

Would definitely recommend
Hired Chris for a personal injury case. I knew the Insurance companies would try to do what they do best - delay payment, save money, and not be fair! (Sorry, not a fan!) And they did just that. Fortunately I hired a caring, compassionate, awesome, kind, focussed, brilliant, up and coming Rockstar of an attorney that believed in me and my case. Anytime something came up, I would call him and he would say " I'll take care of it" and I knew it would be handled. You can count on Chris to go the extra steps to help you, and I really believe in him. Wouldn't hesitate to hire or recommend. Thank you Chris for being a fair and honest man and Attorney!

Wish I could give 10 stars!
Mr. Jackman is by far the best to hire for personal injuries. With a tree falling on me and no one wanting to take on the insurance co. Chris meet with me was compassionate with my injuries, came to my house and told me he had my back. He went above and beyond to keep my family and self informed on the processes what to expect and even worked while away and checked in with me weekly. He believed in me, I believed in him and together yesterday we won my case. If you want 5 star treatment from a 5 Star Lawyer, Chris Jackman is who you need! My family thanks you for all you've done!!

Divorce/Custody
Chris helped me with a divorce and custody case. He helped me with every step. Chris always answered my questions and phone calls right away. He got me the custody agreement I wanted. He made a very hard time a little easier for me. I am very grateful for his help and would recommend him to others.

Rapid resolve for my Personal Injury case.
Mr. Jackman has far exceeded my expectations in handling my case. I had hired another lawyer shortly after my accident, only to be told 2 short months before the statute of limitations ran out that he could not represent my case. I reached out to Mr. Jackman and within 4 months my case was settled and closed. Chris Jackman is a qualified, competent, up and coming Seattle Lawyer. He will handle your case in a prompt and professional manor. I can't say enough about how he changed my perception of lawyers in general. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Jackman to my family and friends.

Great Experience working with Chris Jackman!
Chris was absolutely great! Throughout the entire judicial process he kept me well informed about every possible scenario, and made me feel very relaxed and confident that he was going to represent me to the best of his abilities. His abilities proved to be very valuable as he was able to WIN my case. He is a professional and he is a WINNER. Anyone intending to hire Chris Jackman will be very pleased with the level of service and professionalism that he provides. He is truly a master of his trade.
