LAW ENFORCEMENT

A COURTROOM CAN BE AS DANGEROUS AS THE STREETS

You wouldn’t want to enter a situation with an unproven partner. Same goes for a lawsuit. Which is why CLG is your ally in resolving whatever issue you face.

WE HAVE YOUR BACK

In this particularly sensitive area, Robert L. Christie and the professionals at CLG have represented thousands of individual officers and scores of cities, counties, and port authorities across the state. We know the unique law in this practice area, teach it, and have used our experience to get hundreds of these cases dismissed in early motion practice.

ONE OF THE NORTHWEST’S TOP CIVIL RIGHTS ATTORNEYS

Mr. Christie has been recognized for his work in this area, recently named as one of the top civil rights attorneys in the area. He has served for more than a decade as co-chair of the subcommittee charged with drafting civil rights jury instructions for use in state court.

Civil rights practice is a particular strength of CLG. We have tried scores of cases, handled numerous inquest proceedings, and argued major constitutional issues before the Washington appellate courts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and two cases on briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Professional liability cases are uniquely compelling in this regard. We get that.


EMPLOYER LIABILITY

ACTUALLY, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW CAN HURT YOU

Employee claims against employers present risks and challenges well beyond the immediate lawsuit. These cases carry a high degree of exposure, with the potential for an award of attorney’s fees and tax relief to a successful plaintiff. We not only defend these cases, but teach employers how to avoid liability in the first place.
