Tacoma is significant for maritime injury at sea cases. Less than an hour away from our Seattle main office, is the home of the United States District Court, Western District of Washington. The Federal Court in Tacoma is frequently the location for litigation brought on behalf of our clients living in the Tacoma and southwest Washington communities.
