Here’s what clients say about Seattle attorney and trial lawyer Ray Dearie.
C.M.J.: “Ray put his heart into my cases and never stopped fighting for me, even when it got tough”
Ray Dearie is a great person and an amazing lawyer. Ray took on two lawsuits for me that lasted for about five years. They were very difficult cases, having to do with me being molested as a child by a police officer. Ray put his heart into my cases and never stopped fighting for me, even when it got tough.
We won both of my lawsuits, I feel if it wasn’t for Ray that never would have happened. Ray helped me make the truth come out, which has made me be able to move forward and have a positive life. Words can’t even explain how much I appreciate everything he has done for me, Ray is definitely a blessing!
I would recommend Ray to anyone, he has a big heart and really cares. He will do whatever he can for the person he is representing.
Tena Kibbey: “Ray always treated me with respect and never made me feel like I was asking stupid questions…he got us a settlement that was probably greater than any we would have gotten in court. ”
Ray Dearie is a compassionate, competent attorney that I hired after our trial attorney of four years retired. He agreed to take on a risky case involving financial exploitation of a deceased 82 year old woman by her nursing home. As the estate’s Personal Representative, I was very involved with the details of the case. I often emailed or called our former attorney with questions and was very frustrated about the lack of respect I received back as his client. Many calls and emails were ignored and I always felt (and was told by his assistant) that I was bothering him. Ray NEVER made me feel like that. He always returned my calls, usually the following day, and I was surprised to get immediate response from my emails even in the evening. Ray always treated me with respect and never made me feel like I was asking stupid questions.
Ray had two months to get ready for our trial. He successfully got an amended statute applied retroactively to our case (allowing us to recover attorney fees along with damages) and succeeded in winning the second time around when they appealed. The new trial was scheduled for a year out. Once again, Ray was ready and very excited about taking this to trial. I got cold feet a couple of weeks before trial and told Ray I wanted to settle it out of court. He admitted that he was disappointed but respected my wishes. He asked me to not take the first offer and he would do his best to get us an acceptable offer. Just days before trial, he got us a settlement that was probably greater than any we would have gotten in court. I am very happy with the outcome of our case and know it wouldn’t have happened if Ray hadn’t gotten involved. I will hire Ray again if I ever need an attorney. I recommend Ray to anyone who is looking for a hard working, honest, compassionate, competent attorney who treats his clients with respect.
Izzy Guymon: “Ray has everything it takes to protect your best interests and he truly is, in my opinion, the person you want to represent you. ”
After suffering from a work related Mild Traumatic Brain injury, Ray fought hard for me, genuinely caring about my well being first and foremost. Ray made sure I received the healthcare I needed and was entitled to by the Department of Labor and Industries before proceeding with depositions and mediation. Throughout the legal process Ray and Ann were extremely compassionate and understanding, guiding me and helping me through a very confusing, frustrating and difficult experience.
During the mediation process Ray was very aggressive and steadfast in his demands, but never once discounted my opinion. Trial was something I just couldn’t emotionally handle. Although he was slightly disappointed in my decision to settle and not go to trial, he respected my choice as he had done in every other instance of my case.
Ray has everything it takes to protect your best interests and he truly is, in my opinion, the person you want to represent you.
Theresa M. Wood: “I would unequivocally recommend you to anyone seeking to be made whole …”
Ray – a quick note of appreciation hardly seems enough given the successful outcome of the case you obtained on my behalf. After 4 years, it is gratifying to close the book on this event knowing that I hired a skillful attorney to handle my case after a serious motor vehicle accident. Your knowledge of the nuances of insurance law and your patient tenacity resulted in a fair and reasonable outcome. I send this note with profound admiration and gratitude for your work. You handled my case with thoughtful deliberation and I would unequivocally recommend you to anyone seeking to be made whole in a personal injury case. Thank you.
