John H. Darrow is a 1986 graduate of the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle, Washington, where he received the honor of being a member of the Order of the Coif by graduating in the top 10% of his law school class. Mr. Darrow was admitted to the State Bar of Washington and the U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington, in 1986.

The Law Office of John H. Darrow was launched in 1991 after Mr. Darrow spent several years in practice as an associate. Mr. Darrow is now a solo-practitioner who enjoys having the flexibility of managing his own time, choosing the cases he takes, and determining the strategies necessary to best serve his clients.

Mr. Darrow’s Law Office is conveniently located to serve clients in Bellevue, Washington, as well as Issaquah, Sammamish, Redmond, the Eastside, and the rest of King County. In appropriate cases, he also represents clients in the nearby counties of Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap.
John H. Darrow has devoted his life to helping the little person. Too often in our frenzied world of high finance, big business and big government, the little guy is forgotten. While the banks, large employers, insurance companies and various government entities have their stables of lawyers, the little person generally just hopes to avoid becoming involved in legal issues. He or she doesn’t have even one attorney, much less dozens of them.

Then along comes some legal crisis or problem, and the average person suddenly needs legal advice and representation. It may be as common as buying a house and needing someone to review the mountain of paperwork. It may be as difficult as trying to force a city to pay for damage it did to his property. Perhaps it’s as vital as a couple planning their estate, or trying to avoid a guardianship. It could be that the client is being laid off and needs an attorney to review the severance paperwork and advise him on his rights. Or it may be that she has been in an accident, and the Giant Insurance Company simply begins playing hardball.

Here’s where Mr. Darrow can help level the playing field. He has never been afraid to face up to the Goliaths of the world, and he has the ability and tools to do it. A large part of his practice consists of helping injured people obtain fair compensation for their injuries. He also spends much of his time helping people understand the maze of paperwork thrown at them by banks and title companies when buying a new home, or by employers when they’re laying off employees and they say, “Sign right here, please.”

A lot of his work focuses on helping people plan their estates, as well as preparing the vital documents that help loved ones assist them as they grow older, from durable and health care powers of attorney to living wills. And he helps small businesses prepare solid contracts that protect their interests.

If you would like to hire an Eastside attorney to represent your interests, you can contact Mr. Darrow by calling 425-369-2064.

John H. Darrow is a solo practitioner who has over 20 years’ experience in the practice of law. In addition to owning his own law firm, Mr. Darrow has a wife and two children. He is active in his church, organizes group activities and hosts gatherings for members and guests. John also has a humongous garden, and when he is able to find spare time, he enjoys backpacking and hiking in the mountains of Washington.
The pictures below show a couple of his favorite haunts, Snoqualmie Falls, and a spot near Summit Lake, by Mt. Rainier.
Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

In a trip-and-fall case, I was able to obtain a settlement much larger than my client expected. This enabled her to pay off her debts, buy her home free and clear, and put money away for future needs.

How did you build a successful practice?

Because I'm a detail-oriented person, I get fully acquainted with every detail of my client's case. Moreover, I answer my own phone, and my clients always deal directly with me, not with a secretary or paralegal. If I'm not immediately available, I get back to my clients right away. Because they never get ignored or passed on to an underling, and because I get good results, my clients are very satisfied.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Clients need a lawyer who is not too busy to listen to them and fully understand how their lives have been impacted by their injuries. They also need an attorney who will work hard for them and clearly communicate to key decision makers the true value of what their client has lost because of the accident.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

A local attorney is more likely to understand the needs and wishes of his clients than one who is distant or in a big city. And he's more likely to be able to meet those needs without the client having to travel far, pay high parking rates, and get stuck in heavy traffic.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

Often people call with a question or two about how to work with an insurance company after a car accident. I help them with pointers in the areas they ask about, and they owe me nothing. Sometimes they're trying to decide if they really need a lawyer. Since my initial in-office consultations are also free, and without any obligation, we usually set up a time to meet so I can answer their questions in more detail. Sometimes that meeting is in my office and sometimes it's in their home or even in a convenient coffee shop.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

I always ask for details about the car accident: When, where, who the other driver was, how it happened, what injuries they sustained and what medical care they have received, etc. If it was a slip-and-fall accident or a trip-and-fall accident, I also get information about the property and the owner. In those cases, I also make a visit to the accident site, but I first get a description of the situation over the phone.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

There are many fine injury attorneys in the greater Seattle area. For many reasons, such as firm size, overhead, location, personal preference, etc., they are often found in big, impersonal offices. I prefer to be small, local-and readily available to my clients.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Being able to guide my clients through a confusing and painful period in their lives, most often to a successful conclusion that gets them the best compensation available for their injuries.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I grow a huge garden and have a large backyard orchard (over 50 fruit trees). I enjoy hiking and backpacking, usually taking two or three backpacking trips a year into the local mountains, as well as many hikes. I am also very involved with my close, loving family, including my bride of 44 years, two adult children and one grandson.

Are you involved in your community?

Through my church, I am very much involved in my community, feeding the homeless, leading a Bible study group, organizing fellowship events, and serving on the church council. Outside of church, I also participate in a twice-monthly meeting of small business owners, getting better acquainted and sharing ideas, as well as often referring business to each other.
