Eric Fong is a trial lawyer with an impressive career with over a hundred cases tried to a verdict. Some of his landmark cases include the creation of the constitutional right of intimate association in Washington State, where Fong protected the rights of low-income housing residents against oppressive “crime control” measures. 

He obtained the largest compensatory verdict in Washington State history, $91,000,000. With cases ranging from murder to white-collar crime, and medical malpractice to toxic fume cases, few lawyers can match Fong’s breadth of experience in various fields of law. Eric Fong is a frequent lecturer at the Trial Lawyers College and has held leadership positions with several well-known legal organizations.

Ben Wells has devoted over twenty-five years of his life to the representation of people who have been injured physically, emotionally, or financially by the negligence or malpractice of others. He has handled nearly a thousand cases during his career. And although a vast majority were injury cases, he has also represented people who have been victimized by the malpractice of professionals or from criminal acts such as assault or sexual abuse. His recent results include several multimillion-dollar jury verdicts and settlements.
