Premier Law Group

Our Promise: Personal Attention When You Call, Every Time. You Pay Nothing Upfront and Don't Pay Fees Unless We Win.

Firm Overview

It's Not a Consultation, It's a Conversation
No one wants to have to call a personal injury or auto accident attorney, and we know that a few lawyers have given the rest of us a bad name. Here at Premier Law Group we want to start fixing that reputation one client at a time. We provide a level of customer service unmatched by any other firm in Seattle, Bellevue, Vancouver, or anywhere else in Washington State. We can't guarantee a 100% success rate no one can. But we promise that every member of our team will dedicate themselves to protecting your rights by giving each client's case the attention it deserves. Get in touch with Premier Law Group today and we'll change your mind about attorneys.

You Pay Nothing Upfront and Don't Pay Fees Unless We Win
One of the most common misconceptions about personal injury lawyers is about how we get paid. Here's the straight talk: We don't get paid unless you win. If we win your case, we typically take 1/3 of the settlement or jury verdict award. That may sound like a lot but there's something you should know. Research by insurance companies found that, on average, injury victims are awarded 3.5 times more with a lawyer than without one. That means that even with attorney's fees included, you greatly increase your chances of getting the full amount of compensation you deserve. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, it is in your best interests to be represented by an experienced, knowledgeable Seattle personal injury attorney.

Award Winning Personal Injury Attorneys in Seattle and Bellevue
Sure, you could simply choose the first injury lawyer that comes up on Google. But how do you know that lawyer will be the best one for your case? Not all lawyers have the same training or experience in the field. Any lawyer can say that they are the top rated lawyer in Seattle or the best attorney in Bellevue. Any lawyer can claim they are experienced in personal injury law. Any lawyer can buy a lot of advertising.

If the process of hiring a lawyer confuses you, you aren't alone. That's why accomplished Seattle personal injury attorney Jason Epstein has written The Shocking Truth About Lawyer Advertising. This book is FREE for all Washington State residents, along with our full selection of other books.

The truth is, we might not be the best law firm for your case, and you may not even need a lawyer. If you could be served better by another firm, we will tell you this.

Recognized as Experts in the Media
Premier Law Group's expertise in matters relating to driver safety have been noted nationally and locally by various media outlets and institutions. In addition to appearing to comment on traffic safety laws, Premier Law Group's attorneys have been invited to join Microsoft's International Women's Hackathon in Washington D.C. to judge innovative technology approaches to traffic safety. Premier Law Group employs this knowledge to your case. Even though no two cases are alike, the breadth and depth of Premier Law Group's experience is drawn upon to give your case the best possible chance.

Be Aware That Delays Can Damage Your Case
There are hard and fast deadlines for injury cases built into the legal system. These are called Statutes of Limitations and they are rules that limit the span of time in which you can bring your injury case to trial. If you delay speaking with an attorney for too long, your case may fall outside the Statute of Limitations period and you will not be able to recover compensation.

An experienced personal injury attorney won't rush your case. The more time we have to work with you, the stronger your case will be and the better our position to negotiate with the insurance companies. If you have been seriously injured in an accident and want to put together a roadmap for your case, call us at 206-285-1743 to speak with our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Auto Accident
Auto Accident Attorneys in Seattle
Traffic accidents happen every day, and a lot of times, there is nothing one can do to avoid a negligent driver. The injuries that can result from these car accidents, whether big or small, deserve to be compensated for by the insurance company of the driver that caused it. At Premier Law Group, we understand that accident victims have questions, and we are here to give you all of the information you need. Dealing with insurance companies can be a very difficult and stressful matter, but along with that, you can virtually ruin your case if you make mistakes when talking with them. Car accident cases can be very complicated, and need the representation of experienced injury attorneys. If you have been injured as a result of a car crash, Premier Law Group can help you no matter where you are. We have three locations in Washington: Seattle, Bellevue, and Vancouver. We routinely make home and hospital visits. We truly go the extra mile for our clients and believe our experience, past results, and personal attention make us different than most other attorneys.

In 2009, there were nearly 103,000 car accidents reported in the state of Washington.
This number is actually 20,000 less than the number of officer reported car accidents from 2005, but it is a very high amount nonetheless. About 35% of the total accidents resulted in an injury for someone involved, with 2,241 people that were seriously injured as a result. The scary thing about car accidents is that even the safest drivers are not completely safe from being hit by another car. About 95 people are injured due to Washington car accidents every day, and while organizations such as MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and TADD (Teens Against Distracted Driving) are working hard to reduce the causes behind that number, it is a reality that we all must deal with. Unfortunately, sometimes the result of an accident is more than just an injury and actually results in the death of someone involved. If the victim of an auto accident dies, then the case becomes what is known as wrongful death. Our experienced Seattle, Bellevue, and Vancouver accident attorneys have fought for the rights of many family members who have to deal with this travesty. For more information, click on the wrongful death link above. At Premier Law Group, we fight the insurance companies who seek to reduce or deny claims of car accident victims, because we firmly believe that people should not be punished for the negligence of others.

"All of the attorneys at Premier Law Group listened to what I needed. I have been working with this firm for a few years and they have handled multiple auto accidents for me and everything with my cases went exactly as I expected it to. I have worked with other attorneys on separate matters and I always had to remind them of what I had previously said. I really liked working with Jason. He was very attentive and trustworthy. Patrick was very helpful and had a lot of good ideas and strategies for my case. He was very flexible when things changed and he was able to quickly adjust. The staff was very nice to work with and had really good ideas, and also communicated very well with me." Jim, Port Ludlow, WA

You won't find a better lawyer than the lawyers at Premier Law Group. You won't be disappointed!" Tammy B., Everett, WA

From my first meeting with Mr. Epstein, I found him to be very knowledgeable and understanding. He answered all of my questions and eased my concerns with the process of filing my claim, which allowed me to focus on my recovery.

I was always informed promptly on any changes or updates in my case and was I always able to reach him on the phone if I had any questions. He is truly a good guy and I never felt like I was being talked down to. As for my case, he got me every penny I deserved and more. I would recommend his services without hesitation to friends or family, or to anyone in need of a ethical, honest, and hard working lawyer." Justin T., Federal Way, WA

"About a year after I was involved in an auto accident, I contacted Jason Epstein, unsure of how I should be going about continuing treatment and pursuing a claim. Up until that point my treatment had been covered by my PIP, but I had exhausted my PIP limit. From the first moment I contacted Jason, he took a genuine interest in my well-being. With his knowledge and experience, he helped lay out a plan that kept my best interests in mind every step of the way. Throughout the entire process, Jason answered all my questions and concerns, was easy to talk to, and kept me updated. Jason's expertise helped ensure I received a fair settlement. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone who was involved in an auto accident." Kathryn W., Bellevue, WA
