Stritmatter Firm attorneys are devoted to the causes of our clients and to making the world a safer place.   Our case results have helped to change oppressive laws, added safety features to roadways, and changed the way products are made. We lead legal organizations, testify in front of the legislature, and serve on community panels and nonprofit boards.

We travel around the country giving legal education seminars on behalf of state and national trial lawyer associations.  We value our relationships with other plaintiff attorneys, many of whom ask us to partner with them on cases that require more resources.

We are recognized by our peers. Paul Stritmatter, Keith Kessler, and Karen Koehler have received the prestigious Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Washington State Association for Justice.  Paul has also received the Champion of Justice Award from Public Justice, the Lifetime Achievement Award from WSAJ, and the Trial Lawyer of Year Award from American Board of Trial Advocates. 

Our attorneys work in teams on large complex cases to share the volume of work but also to bring our different skills to the table.   We have regular meetings.  We go out to lunch and dinner together.  We support and care for each other professionally.  We consider ourselves a law firm family.
