Following his graduation from Gonzaga University School of Law in 2011, Attorney Brett Stetzner has quickly earned a reputation for dependable advocacy when his clients need an Olympia personal injury lawyer they can trust. As a former employee for State Farm Insurance, Mr. Stetzner’s experience is crucial in helping him understand his clients’ needs and build a strong case to help them obtain favorable outcomes for their situations.
His first jury trial occurred when an insurance company forced his client into the courtroom with an unreasonable offer far below what was needed to pay the client’s medical bills. The insurer attempted to obstruct the case at every turn, even denying liability in a case where the at-fault driver ran a stop sign. The jury finally put a stop to the games with a strong verdict that required the insurance company to pay additional attorney fees and costs for all the trouble it caused his client.
Mr. Stetzner’s experience helps his clients understand how the law provides access to justice for a personal injury claim, evaluating whether offers from the insurance company are within a fair range, appreciating the risks and costs of litigation, and helping the client fight for justice when the insurance company is being unreasonable.
In his free time, Mr. Stetzner enjoys exploring the Olympic Peninsula with his wife and dog in their 1983 Volkswagen Westfalia camper van. His heroes are his parents, as they have defined him as a person.
