Gilbert Law Firm attorneys have a reputation amongst their peers of being tenacious litigators who are willing to take the fight to anyone, anywhere, any time. Our track record of successfully handling difficult cases against some of the world's most well-financed and aggressive opponents sets us apart from other law firms.  We have repeatedly taken on government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, and large, litigiously aggressive corporations across the United States, and around the world, forcing them to pay for their indiscretions, and change the way they do business.  In this regard, we have some of the largest jury verdicts and settlements in history in several jurisdictions.  


The attorneys and staff at Gilbert Law Firm have committed their lives to helping the injured, the weak, the bullied, the oppressed, and the powerless. We fight day in and day out against corporate greed and political corruption.  We represent the powerless, against the power base.  We do it with teeth bared, and fire in our eyes.  Once we get hold, we never let go of the sock.  Our motto illustrates our philosophy: “You’re not going to beat us … but if you do, you are never going to want to do it again – so come get some.” 


How we obtain real justice for our clients begins with the approach we take from the beginning of the case.  We treat every client like family.  We bring them in and we sit down with them, and listen to them – truly listen to their story.  We share their feelings of trust, betrayal, love, loss, pain, anger, suffering and joy.  We share our own stories that relate to what the client has been through, because we know from our experience that your stories are our stories, and our feelings are your feelings; and this applies to a jury as well.  To tell your story, we must understand your story at a deep, emotional level. We spend the time to get to know you, your family, your dreams and your challenges. We get to know you, because only by getting to know you can we accurately tell your story to a jury that’s never met you, or a judge that’s “seen it all.”  In this respect, we commit our emotional whole selves to every client that comes through our doors.  


After we have the story and really know and understand our client, we work hard to put ourselves in our clients’ shoes so we see the facts you’re your perspective. We accomplish this by using techniques learned over countless hours spent working on cases using methods learned through years of trial and error, and working experience from Bill’s work as faculty teaching trial and personal skills at Gerry Spence’s Trail Lawyer’s College.


As a faculty member at the Trial Lawyer’s College Mr. Gilbert, has helped hundreds of attorney’s learn valuable trial skills designed specifically to help lawyers become authentic client advocates in order to connect with the jury in a real and meaningful way.  Mr. Gilbert is often in high demand and we receive requests frequently from collogues to assist with trials across the country. 


But you don’t just get Bill when you sign up with Gilbert Law Firm.  Trial Lawyers College graduate and brain injury specialist, Ashley Richards is the bonus package.  A committed trial lawyer, mother, wife, and tireless advocate for the injured and disabled, Ashley is a truly remarkable human being. Disabled herself at one point in her life – and living with pain daily,  this former president of the Eastern Washington Chapter of the Washington State Brain Injury Alliance has committed her life to helping those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and debilitating injuries as a result of the negligence of others. 


Gilbert Law Firm also has the benefit of having worked with some of the best trial lawyers in the country, as well as some of the best experts in the world.  This benefits our clients in a number of ways.  If a client needs to see an orthopedic surgeon, we know the best in the business.  If it’s a neurologist for a brain injury, we have personal relationships with some of the best in the world.  Need an accident reconstructionist, Bill’s got the list.  Engineers, Psychologists, law enforcement civil rights experts, we have direct dial access to the best of the best.  Keeping these kind of high-level relationships requires the kind of trust that only open honestly and sustained commitment to the truth and justice can foster.  Our clients get the benefit of our years of building these relationships. 


Finally, while we at Gilbert Law Firm want to assist our clients in surviving the trauma in their lives, and getting the justice they so deserve, we also want to make sure our clients have every opportunity to thrive and reintegrate into the community in a meaningful way. Both Mr. Gilbert and Ms. Richards have an unyielding dedication to helping our clients to become successful in this regard.


We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family, and consider it an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to represent you should you chose our firm.
