Craig Schauermann — for nine straight years has been designated a “Washington Super Lawer”

Our Senior Partner, Craig F. Schauermann, was named a 2014 “Washington Super Lawyer” by Law and Politics Magazine. This is the 9th straight year that Craig has been recognized as one of the top 5% of all lawyers in the State of Washington- an incredible run!

For most of those years Craig was the only recipient of this prestigious honor in all of Southwest Washington, to be practicing exclusively in the area of personal injury. For over 35 years Craig has successfully represented injured people and insurance consumers in a wide variety of personal injury and insurance claims, including auto and motorcycle collisions, worksite injuries, premises liability claims, watercraft accidents, to name a few.

We are immensely proud to have one of our own recognized as one of the best of the best.
