Aaron DeShaw

Doctor / Lawyer

Dr. Aaron DeShaw, Esq. has individually, and in cooperation with other law firms, obtained settlements and verdicts for his clients in excess of $1 Billion. He is the leading author in the U.S. on the subject of Colossus, the computer assessment program used by most auto insurance companies for evaluating personal injury claims. DeShaw is author of three books, and is featured in multiple professional education videos on the topics of traumatic injuries and insurance.

Aaron holds a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Western States Chiropractic College and a Juris Doctorate from Willamette University College of Law. As a doctor, he was on staff at the exclusive Hale Clinic in London England, and additionally practiced in five countries treating people from over 100 nations. He lectures extensively for both physician and legal professionals.

Aaron has been elected by his peers to Super Lawyers in multiple years. In addition to working at his own firm in Oregon, he is of counsel with the nationally prominent firm of Friedman | Rubin in Seattle, Washington.

Presently, more than 90% of Aaron’s cases involve traumatic brain injuries, with the remainder of his personal injury cases being catastrophic injuries such as quadriplegia, spinal cord injuries, amputation, and wrongful death cases. He has extensive experience doing jury trials on complex medical injury cases. Known for his unusual frontal attack of defense medical witnesses’ opinions, his cross-examination of one witness uncovered the “doctor’s” lack of an M.D. degree. Other defense doctors simply refuse to show up to testify against his clients.

DeShaw is a board member of the Brain Injury Alliance of Oregon, an association of doctors, lawyers and other health care providers who are dedicated to helping people with life changing brain injuries.

He is also a musician, and photographer.
