Chris Casey


"Caring, approachable and available seven days a week during the course of our litigation."

Suzi Ward, Board Member

Chris Casey focuses on assisting Plaintiffs with their contract, real estate and catastrophic injury issues. Distinguishing Mr. Casey from his competition is his prior years of experience as a defense attorney, his record in the courtroom as a criminal prosecutor and his commitment to developing long-term relationships with each client.

Chris started his career, while still a law student, as a trial attorney with the District Attorney’s Office. At the D.A.’s Office he worked with the Drug Enforcement Trial Unit, and successfully litigated dozens of felony bench and jury trials. Chris left the D.A. with an undefeated trial record.

In 1997 Chris brought his courtroom success to Seattle where he began a career as a civil litigator. The cases he litigated as a Defense attorney involve a variety of contract and insurance coverage related issues, including breach of contract and warranty, breach of duty, negligence, Consumer Protection Act, fraud and issues involving insurance coverage.

Chris has participated in a variety of multifamily residential and commercial construction related legal matters of varying economic value. His cases have involved homeowners, developers, contractors, construction product manufacturers ranging in size from four employees to over 1,000, including pursuing claims against publically traded companies.

Chris appreciates that most of our clients look to him to achieve both a fair and a timely resolution of their problems. He recognizes the stress and strain drawn-out litigation brings to businesses and families. Where it is possible, Chris settles disputes without resorting to litigation. However, by reputation, opposing counsel understands he is an experienced and aggressive trial attorney (a/k/a “pit-bull”). This reputation, coupled with his relationships with defense attorneys, contributes to his success in timely settling disputes and maximizing our clients’ claim.

Chris has also been a keynote speaker on behalf of the Community Association Institute, Institute of Real Estate Management, Rental Housing Association, and the Real Estate Investors Association of Washington, and more.
