Personal injury lawyer in Walla Walla, WA George Telquist is a graduate of Washington State University and Gonzaga School of Law. After his admission to the Washington State Bar Association, George went to work for a law firm where he did insurance defense work, representing insurance companies and other litigants who were against injured victims. It did not take George long to realize that in order to make a difference, he needed to represent the victims and not the liable parties. They were the clients who really needed his help.
It is because of this dedication to victims that George only represents clients who have been injured in vehicle accidents, medical malpractice cases, large tort claims, and other types of claims where the victim was injured because of the negligence or recklessness of another party. He represents clients in several counties in and throughout the state of Washington from Telaré Law.
He has extensive experience litigating injury cases at all levels, from arbitration to jury trials, all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court. His skill as a litigator has even resulted in significantly changing the law in granting minors access to courts for injuries suffered at the hands of health care providers.
The respect he has earned in Washington legal circles shows in the success he has had during his 20-plus years long career, obtaining multiple jury awards in the millions of dollars, as well as tens of millions of dollars in settlements for victims from insurance carriers.
When not practicing law, George enjoys spending time with his family, especially in the great outdoors that Washington has to offer. He is grateful for his ability to be able to assist victims who are injured at the hands of others, finding it both rewarding and fulfilling.
