About our Seattle, WA: office

We're litigators and trial counsel. We know that cases are won and lost on their "story": who is right and who is wrong in the eyes of the judge and jury. Our expertise is in developing and telling that story by drawing out the key facts, players, and themes, defining the legal framework in which they operate, and weaving them into a compelling narrative. While our subject-matter expertise is both deep and broad, our record of success demonstrates our skill in crafting and presenting a winning argument.

Our skill as litigators informs every step along the way. Understanding the facts requires not only an eye for detail but a strategy that identifies the right detail, combined with the tenacity to obtain and marshal complex facts and develop a record that completes the picture. Defining the legal framework means not merely understanding what the law "is" but a creative process of identifying and describing the legal principles and authorities that-when applied to the facts of a particular case-lead to the just result for our clients. Weaving these elements together effectively requires more than just proficiency with legal subject matter: it requires articulating clearly to a judge, arbitrator, or jury, who may have no familiarity with the subject matter or even the law, not only that our client should win but why.

We believe in the power of what can be achieved in the courtroom, but one size does not fit all. Our successes demonstrate the ability to develop winning strategies that meet the unique needs of each case. We know when a major investment of people and time will yield results and when it just means a big bill, and we're committed to identifying cost-effective solutions to our clients' problems. If there is a way to resolve a dispute successfully short of trial, we find it.

Our skill as legal writers gives our clients a unique advantage in litigation. Increasingly, cases are decided on written motions. For a client, winning on a motion is the best possible result-it avoids both the cost of trial and the compromise of settlement. Even if a motion does not decide a case, it may resolve a key issue so as to tip the scales decidedly in a client's favor at trial or drive a favorable settlement. This places a premium on lawyers who can synthesize complex facts and legal issues and distill them into an easy-to-follow explanation as to why their clients should win.

When trial is necessary, success requires not only the skills of the courtroom-examinations of witnesses and arguments to jury and judge-but also the use of those skills in the presentation of a winning story developed strategically from the outset. That is what we do.

    • 5.0/5.0 Review for Duncan Emerson Manville by a Government Counsel on 01/27/15 in Employment Litigation

      What I appreciate most about Duncan is his professionalism. He's also one of those rare attorneys who functions at a very high level but hasn't lost the human touch. We need more attorneys like Duncan with that type of integrity.

      I have worked closely with Duncan on several matters, where we represented different clients with similar interests. He's very bright, stays on top of things, and is great to work with.
