Do I need a Seattle attorney if I get injured in Spokane?

Seattle and Spokane might be on opposite sides of the state, but one thing that they have in common is that they’re both in Washington. Attorneys in Seattle and Spokane have something else in common too. They’re licensed to practice law in Seattle, Spokane or anywhere else in the State of Washington.

Seattle to Spokane is a long way to go to court

Both cities have some excellent attorneys who are capable of representing clients anywhere in Washington, but Seattle and Spokane are about 300 miles apart. An attorney is looking at a five hour drive from door to door. That’s a long way to travel from Seattle if you have a 9:00 a.m. court call in Spokane. Sure, local flights are available, but by the time that your attorney travels to the airport, goes through security and gets to his or her gate, there’s still a very significant loss of valuable time.

Retaining a Seattle attorney will likely increase your costs

Unless it’s a very large case, it’s simply not worth a Seattle attorney’s time to travel to Spokane for a minute or two in front of the bench on something that the judge is going to allow anyway. That minute or two will also require additional litigation costs that are only going to come off of the top of any settlement or verdict on your behalf.

The local advantage

You might want to consider the following:

  • CCD Law was established in 1948 and we have recovered millions in compensation for our clients.
  • Every county has local rules, and a local attorney knows them.
  • We are probably already familiar with the insurance defense lawyers, judges, and courthouse personnel

All of those factors can add up to a less stressful and more positive litigation experience for you. It’s your choice though.

Your Seattle attorney probably already knows successful and respected personal injury attorneys in Spokane such as us. He or she can make a phone call, get you turned in the right direction, or possibly even refer you to us.
