I wanted to make sure that you knew how terrific you and Leslie were in handling my claim.
I know that it was an uphill battle with the insurance company, but the outcome was far and beyond what I ever expected!

Hi, my name is David L. and I was in a bad car accident in 2009. I had a prior back surgery in 2000 and my back had been doing pretty well before the 2009 accident. The pain in my back after the accident was excruciating and immediately began to affect my business as a corporate motivator and event planner. I began going to the doctor almost every day and I made the great decision to hire attorney Dean Perkins. Dean really got to know me and my business and he went to work representing me aggressively.
We met several times during the process and I could really tell what goes into the process of putting together a personal injury case with an insurance company.
Dean took photos of the intersection, he interviewed my employees, he got to know my business inside and out and he spoke with every one of my doctors! He had to file a lawsuit and he worked exceptionally hard for me through the entire litigation process. We were able to obtain a great settlement before trial.
I feel that Dean Perkins went the extra mile for me and I would recommend him to anyone who had been in a serious car accident.
Settlement Reached with Car Accident Involving Underinsured Driver
I want to thank you and the rest of your firm for helping our family through [...] the complications of dealing with more than one automobile accident, several insurance companies, an underinsured driver and my complex health issues.
You did a great job of educating us as we went along. It could have been a very intimidating process but you presented it in digestible chunks, always taking care to translate the legal jargon into English.
I particularly appreciate the good work you do as I've been chatting with friends who did not do nearly as well as we did when settling their [motor vehicle] cases. They all seems to be relieved they didn't lose money in the end, where as we came away with a reasonable settlement even after the attorney fees.
Sincerely and Gratefully,
Claim Resolved for Bicyclist Hit by a Car
One June afternoon I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. The next day, I began to wonder if I should retain a lawyer. I had never been in a bike accident before, or ever used a personal injury lawyer. I called a friend in the health care field and he put me in contact with Susan.
In our first meeting, [Susan] completely removed any idea I had about personal injury lawyers and shifty tactics. She was completely up front about how the case would go, the costs of her services, and what exactly her services were and how Dean Standish Perkins could help me. The most important aspect of this meeting was that Susan stressed that she would take care of everything.
My claim has been resolved successfully and to my complete satisfaction. Susan was the key player that made this accident turn from a major frustration and insurance headache into a minor hassle that took a modicum of my time. Susan and the whole staff of Dean Standish Perkins work each day to abolish the image of the slimy personal injury lawyer. They are a true credit to lawyers worldwide and were an invaluable help to me.
Settlement Successfully Negotiated for Automobile Accident
I was in an automobile accident when I first moved to Seattle. One of my good friends told me to call Dean Perkins for help in dealing with the insurance company. I met Dean and immediately felt comfortable with him. I will always remember what he told me as my case was getting ready to settle, "always make sure you get healthy and I will take care of the rest of your case."
Dean negotiated an outstanding settlement for me and I have referred my family and friends to his firm for the past 20 years and they have all been very satisfied clients. Dean Perkins cares about his client and it shows.

Every time I called her to follow up my case, she [was] always there to update me. And my claim was resolved very quick. I will recommend her and her law office to anyone I know.
Insurance Claim Settled Out of Court

Medical Injury Claim Due to Auto Accident
I had the pleasure of working with Susan Cohodes, in the law offices of Dean Standish Perkins and Associates, several years ago for a medical injury claim from an auto accident. I was always treated graciously and courteously by Susan and other staff, whether on the phone or in the office.
Their office is conveniently located in downtown Seattle close to freeway access. They have parking under the building for which they stamp your receipt and street parking is also frequently available.
I would highly recommend using this law office should you have need of legal advice and action.
Representation for Car Accident Injury
I was recently involved in a car accident and not knowing what to do I was referred to Susan Cohodes at Dean Standish Perkins & Associates and I could not tell you what a relief it was. After the accident they were willing to come meet me and the amount of expertise and professionalism was remarkable. I was treated excellent and was very pleased with the entire experience and would recommend anybody in need of representation to contact Dean Standish Perkins & Associates. I would like to say thank you to everybody there that made this tough time for me so much easier.

Representation for Semi-Truck Accident
I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for all that you did to help our family out during a very tough and confusing time. Getting hit by a semi was one of the worst things that we have ever encountered, and then to have to deal with all the insurance companies and phone calls on top of it, it's just too much to handle. Calling Dean Standish Perkins & Associates was the best decision we could have made. You dealt with everything for us, meaning that we had the opportunity to do what we needed, which was to heal and take care of our family. You are a wonderful firm, and your practice is genuine and people oriented, and we truly felt taken care of. I would never wish a personal injury on anyone, however if the situation should arise, I would recommend your firm to anyone is this position. Thanks again.
Accident Settlement for Collision Involving an SUV Crossing into Oncoming Traffic
[After my car accident involving a collision with an SUV] it was a huge weight off my shoulders that we would not have to deal with the amount of stress associated with dealing with insurance companies, opposing counsel, paperwork and phone calls, etc. Especially when trying to get my mind and body to mend after an accident like that one. Shortly after hiring your firm Dean Perkins paid a visit to us at our home, and during our visit shared with us about what to expect about the process, time involved and what was a realistic expectation in terms of the outcome. There was a genuine sense of caring that came from him not only about his family, but about the people he represents. Dean made us feel comfortable in the fact that he had our best interest in both heart and mind.
The settlement I received took some time, as expected, but was one that we were happy with and were pleased with the professional way in which we were represented by Dean Standish Perkins and Associates. Looking back, I would not have done it any differently, and have referred friends to you office and will continue to do so in the future.
Thank you again for all of your sincere and hard work on my case.

Settlement Reached for Car Accident with Uninsured Motorist Who Ran a Red Light
In 2007, I was making a left turn on a green arrow at Grady Way in Renton when another driver approaching the opposite direction ran her red light and struck my 4-Runner at about 45 mph. I sustained serious injuries as well as significant damage to my vehicle. The other driver was uninsured. I have full coverage, but felt that my insurance company wasn’t working in my best interest, so I sought legal advice. I found Dean Perkins & Associates via on-line resources. The initial contact to their office by phone was pleasant. They were informative and helpful, willing to meet with me at my convenience.
I got a rental car and my 4-Runner into a shop within the same day. My case took about 5 months to settle. During that time they kept me informed and up to date of the progress. I [was] treated for my injuries without any hassles. After the settlement everything was paid in full and I had money in my pocket. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Perkins & Assoc.
