Our clients, the Schulte family, recently had a huge win in their long fight for justice. In 2013, a deadly drunk-driving crash killed Dennis and Judy Schulte and changed their family’s lives forever. Following the city of Seattle’s third failed attempt at removing itself as a party in the lawsuit, the state Court of Appeals has decided that it will send the case back to Superior Court, presumably for trial.

The decision will now be left to a King County jury to determine if the city of Seattle failed to properly supervise a repeat drunk driver. At Evergreen Personal Injury Counsel, we are honored to represent the Schulte family as we work to bring significant change to our Washington state drunk driving laws.
