I had a terrible experience with this firm. I spoke with my attorney two times total along with a few emails. The opposing counsel refused to speak with them and they had one conversation with her. A...ll along they continued to charge me thousands. I ended up withdrawing, i was tired of seeing my retainer drop every time I emailed him requesting an update. I spent over $3,000 in two phone calls and half a dozen emails! See More

Really smart people with deep sector expertise. They are leading edge in terms of figuring out new ways of charging for legal expertise. And I've always felt like they were on my side.

After hearing about the way DWT is handling the Pokemon case against Ramar Larkin Jones, this is just another money-grubbing group of lawyers out to bleed middle and lower class citizens' bank account...s dry.

Is this necessary?

This firm got an agreement for settlement from a fan fairly, even beneficially, using a client's copyrighted character, and then refused to allow the guy enough time to pay even though he has no money... and could just tell them to stuff it. See More

I have lawsuits against NBC, Hollywood reporter for defamation of character. This lawfirm threatenened to kill my 7 year old niece, and nephew, if i did not drop the lawsuits. they have people me as I pursue these lawsuits. I was told by another attorney that the only people that goes against these people [Disney and the jews of Hollywood] are ones glutoning for punishment. he informed that they threaten your family over lawsuits, and i thought he was joking until i started suing them. This law firm is corrupt and dangerous. Jon Segal is the lawyer representing NBC. See More

Very bad form to bully a person with unreasonable fees when a cease and desist letter had been followed. Low class money grubbing actions.

So proud of John Parsi, named Attorney of the Month by Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

Congratulations to John Parsi, our February Volunteer Attorney of the Month! John began volunteering with us in 2011, and since then, he has taken the cases of ...about 10 of our clients.

Though he practices in corporate commercial litigation, John focuses much of his time on volunteering. He entered law school after completing coursework toward a Ph.D. in Political Science, because as he says, “I wanted to help people more directly than by teaching Political Science. My parents like to say that when I was 15, I told them I wanted to make the world a better place, and that the best way to do that was to be a lawyer. So I try to prioritize pro bono work with nonprofits whenever I can.”

John’s interest in working with survivors of domestic violence is both legal and academic. In graduate school, he taught courses in Women’s Studies, studied sexual abuse against women as a war crime, and worked with the noted feminist legal scholar Catharine MacKinnon. As an attorney, he finds pro bono work for survivors of DV fulfilling because “it is a unique opportunity to empower someone who has been put in a disadvantaged position, and to have a positive impact that deeply shapes who they are as a human being.”

John explains the importance of using his position to help others in need. “I had a client who came into my office for an initial meeting. Afterwards, I walked her down the hall to the elevator, and she began crying. I asked if she was okay or needed water, and she told me that she was crying because no man had ever treated her so well. That simple interaction of walking her to the elevator gave her empowerment and self-respect. The opportunity to impact people in that way is what I find so fulfilling about the work.”

Asked what he would say to other attorneys considering pro bono DV work, John responds, “There are a lot of reasons why you should do it: not only to use your law degree for a great purpose, but also to connect with others and to gain knowledge. There’s a whole network you can connect with through ANDVSA if you need a mentor. And the Volunteer Attorney’s handbook [published by ANDVSA] is very helpful if you feel anxious or underprepared. Most places I’ve worked, there are other attorneys who have done ANDVSA cases, and they’ve always been there to help me.” ANDVSA is proud to contribute to the community of legal professionals making a positive difference in Alaska!

John is an Associate at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in Anchorage. In his free time, he enjoys performing improv comedy with the Urban Yeti troupe and organizing nonpartisan dialogues on social and political issues as a board member of Alaska Common Ground.

Employment First Success Story with Susan at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and provider Albertina Kerr in Portland!

Susan Cecil will be the first to admit – her col...leagues at Davis Wright Tremaine law firm spoil her a bit.

“They threw me a Harry Potter-themed birthday party,” she said. “They know I love Harry Potter. They also know I love purple.”

Susan thinks of her new employers as family. The firm appreciates the hard work, sunny personality and upbeat attitude that Susan brings to a high-energy, sometimes stressful work environment.

Heather Robertson, manager of the support services team for the Portland office of Davis Wright Tremaine, knew that the firm’s Belleview, Wash. office employed a person with a disability. She contacted the Washington Initiative for Supported Employment (WISE) and asked about the process of hiring an employee that experiences a disability. WISE is contracted with the Oregon Department of Human Services’ Employment First initiative to deliver training and technical assistance to providers transforming from sheltered and facility-based employment to community-based job services. WISE put Heather in contact with Albertina Kerr, a recipient of a DHS transformation grant. Albertina Kerr then brought forward three candidates for the firm to interview.

Heather said they were impressed at how smoothly the process went.

“I really liked that WISE and Albertina Kerr came in and took the time to learn what our needs were and really get a good understanding of what the position is and what the culture is here before they brought us candidates,” she said. “It really instilled a lot of confidence for us.”

While all three candidates had strengths, Heather said Susan impressed the entire team right away.
