Firm Details

The Blankenship Law Firm is a premier Northwest litigation firm established in 1993, with attorneys practicing in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. The firm’s attorneys have handled a wide spectrum of civil actions, primarily in the areas of employment law, personal injury, class actions, malpractice, commercial litigation, and nursing home negligence. We have successfully litigated against entities of all sizes, including Fortune 100 corporations and government agencies as large as the United States Navy.

The cornerstone of our success is the quality relationship and open communication that we maintain with our clients. We understand that effective communication is the foundation of quality legal work, as it is the pathway to channeling goals and ideas into tangible results. Our philosophy is based on the belief that legal justice should be accessible to everyone; no wrongdoer should be beyond the reach of the justice system. We are dedicated to seeing that our clients receive a just result.

Recent verdicts and settlements include the largest EEOC settlement per employee in a sexual harassment case in the Western United States according to the EEOC (1.72 million), $1.9 million for breach of an executive employment contract, and a unanimous jury verdict resulting in a recovery of over $3.9 million for race discrimination. In 2011, results included a $1 million settlement for a retaliatory discharge case against a local municipality. In 2008, results included the largest single victim discrimination settlement in the Northwest according to Jury Verdicts Northwest ($1.65 million), and a business tort/trade secrets/wrongful discharge case for $1.65 million. In 2005, one of our cases was selected by the National Employment Lawyers Association as one of the five most important cases nationally for employee rights in the last 20 years.

Our founding shareholder, Scott Blankenship, was ranked among the top ten employment lawyers in Washington State by Washington CEO magazine. He was included in “The Best Lawyers in America” for 2017 by Best Lawyers and has been selected as a “Washington Super Lawyer” for each of the last twelve years. He is also listed in the top 100 trial lawyers in Washington by ATLA. In September 2009, he was featured in the King County Bar Bulletin.
