SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s strange to think how a single man’s apparent moment of misfortune could so positively impact the lives of hundreds of people in similar circumstances years later. While attending law school at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, Jason Epstein was in an auto accident. The recent graduate of USC retained Marina Del Rey based attorney Doug Schiffer to handle his case, and after it was settled, he began working for the veteran lawyer as a legal intern.
Schiffer’s mentoring taught the Seattle native all the ins and outs of personal injury law—and led him to see that he could make a difference in this arena as a David helping his clients take on the Goliath-sized insurance companies. After several years of working for plaintiff law firms in Seattle, Epstein – currently honored for the third year in a row as a “Rising Star” by Washington SuperLawyers - joined Premier Law Group as a partner in 2007. Establishing himself as a top personal injury attorney specializing in auto accidents, serious injury, and wrongful death cases, Epstein created Straight Talk Law as a branding segment of the firm in 2009.
Straight Talk Law represents “real people” against insurance companies and large corporations. Epstein and his team of attorneys fight for those that have been injured, so they can focus on recovering physically and mentally. The firm also represents families of wrongful death victims and cases involving employment law, wrongful termination and sexual harassment.
Part of the “Straight Talk” Epstein promises includes telling prospective clients something most attorneys won’t dare: that, depending on their unique circumstances, they may not even need an attorney at all!
Over the past two years, he has written a total of five books (available through Amazon.com) that have helped him achieve his goal of putting people in a position to make better decisions when they need assistance with a personal injury claim. He offers the books, mostly geared around Washington State law, free to residents. His flagship Straight Talk Law item is “The Truth about Washington Auto Accidents,” subtitled “The Ten Secrets Insurance Companies Don’t Want You To Know.”
