Customer Satisfaction:

We were so pleased with Mr. Nute and his staff as we were able to recover an outstanding loan debt. Mr. Nute was diligent, responsive, knowledgeable about our rights and next steps, and was 100% successful in our suit while maintaining a professionalism and without employing any aggressive or hostile tactics. Without question, we would hire him again for any legal issues we may have in the future.
ELIZABETH, CIVIL LITIGATION CLIENT
I was particularly impressed with Ryan's persistence in negotiating throughout the settlement process, resulting in no / minimal potential settlement money left on the table. His hard work gave me peace of mind that I was compensated in an equitable manner.
KEITH, PERSONAL INJURY CLIENT
Ryan worked tirelessly and kept me well informed the whole time. Not only that, but his efforts were actually effective. He could have laid down and quit but he did the work and won. My case isn't a big one, but Ryan took it and that matters to him. This is the man you want in your corner.
KARL, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Ryan has been a great help in our case. Great communication and information. He went above and beyond to help us understand how the process was going to work and as things came up, he kept us informed. We were confident through out that he was doing everything possible to help us settle our case appropriately.
SCOTT
After setting on my case for over a year and just before the time ran out to file my case my local lawyer (I live in Vancouver, WA) suggested I find a lawyer in Seattle where I had been injured on a business trip.The lawyer he referred me to was too busy but suggested Ryan Nute as someone who might be interested in taking it. Wow, what a difference, I got a lawyer who really cares about representing his client, no matter how large or small the case. I never had to wonder what was going on, Ryan worked diligently and kept me well informed the whole time and gladly answered my questions and concerns. He could have quit but he did the work and won. My case wasn't a big one either, but Ryan did an outstanding job representing me and getting me a fair settlement. Working with Ryan was a real pleasure at a time when I had very little faith in lawyers. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. He'll take excellent care of you.
CYRIE
I got a hold of Ryan as soon as I turned 18, because I wasn't getting much help with my case before that. I contacted him through a free consultation online and he got back to me right away. Ryan took my case into his hands and helped me through the whole process. I wasn't expecting things to go so fast and smooth, but Ryan definitely exceeded my expectations. I will be recommending him to anyone I can!
ALYSSA
Ryan dealt with the legal process and jargon, which alleviated my stressors and anxiety. I am extremely impressed and satisfied with the services he provided to me - he is extremely competent and knows exactly what he's doing! I would work with him again in a heartbeat - I plan on making referrals in the near future for family/friends.
ABU, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Ryan took my case after a couple other firms passed on it. I am happy he did. After a few months of negotiation we settled for more than I expected. Very good at communicating the stages of our negotiations and what to expect. I would recommend Ryan to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer - his work is excellent.
JEN, PREMISES LIABILITY CLIENT
Mr. Nute worked for a year straight on my case doing the best he could to help me not only with my recovery, but helping me cope with everything that had happened! Only attorney I've ever seen and don't think I'd ever look for another! Definitely a trustworthy guy!
TAYLOR, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
I turned things over to Ryan and he did a great job. I have referred him to everyone who has inquired with me regarding the need for legal help.
ANNETTE, PREMISES LIABILITY AND CIVIL LITIGATION CLIENT
I just settled my case with Ryan's help! He is an amazing lawyer! I am so happy I chose him to represent me in this case. This is a case involving a semi-truck collision and it is not an easy case. But he handled the case professionally. He took his time to answer all my questions and worked really hard and very thoroughly to achieve the best outcome for the case. I have no hesitation recommending him to all my friends or anyone seeking an experienced personal injury attorney!
LISA, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Throughout the entire process Mr. Nute kept me apprised of the status of my case and provided expert advise on next steps and options. I was very satisfied with the final settlement and appreciated the professionalism and diligence through this procedural action.
AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Ryan helped me with an negligent injury due to someone I knew. Even when the insurance thought it was an assault done on purpose and the claim was denied, Ryan still pressed on and settled my claim with them in a professional manner. Ryan explains everything, keeps you informed and may even take you out for pastries!
PERSONAL INJURY CLIENT
I never had to wonder if things were getting done, because I knew Ryan was on top of it! Ryan is awesome! I have referred my family, friends, and colleagues to him. I never have to worry about them because I know they are in great hands!
SHARON, PERSONAL INJURY CLIENT
Ryan was no slacker. He picked up the pieces and started running with it. He didn't waste any time. After 2 years of dealing with other lawyers and attorneys and seeing no result nor progress, Ryan Nute was able to settle my case within 8 months of taking it over. I was well-informed every week on the status of my cases even if there was no progress.
AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Ryan is a fair, tenacious, knowledgeable, straight shooter who will work for a quick resolution to your case while continuing to maximize your benefit. His no nonsense approach is a welcome alternative to many other lawyers in the field of personal injury law who often seem more like salespeople than attorneys. Ryan's legal acumen far transcends personal injury litigation, and I have called on him for help with personal injury matters as well as for other legal help, and he has always delivered with sound advice and an honest approach.
JAMES
Got in an auto accident last year. He helped me with getting a settlement. Gave me options and tips on how to handle the process. Always kept me informed and in the loop with everything going on with case. I appreciate that.
WARREN, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
Having someone who will handle the legal issues, insurance roadblocks, and keep me abreast of everything that is going on, no matter how long it takes was very reassuring. While I focused on getting better and getting my life back in order, he was handling all the stressful details. Hopefully I never have to rely on Ryan again, but if I do end up in an accident, he will be on my immediate call list.
JANE, AUTO ACCIDENT CLIENT
After being hit by a car in a cross walk and not knowing what to do afterwards, I was referred to Ryan Nute by a friend that had used him previously. I contacted and hired Ryan to help me navigate through the person at fault's car insurance, my personal car insurance, and all of the medical bills. Ryan did everything for me from start to finish which helped me tremendously being that I didn't have much time of my own between continuing to work and attending multiple doctor visits a week. Ryan was patient, knowledgeable, and explained everything in detail. Never once did I not feel like a priority. Ryan was always prompt and detailed with his responses to my questions. I was completely satisfied with my services. I would used Ryan again in the future if needed and would recommend him to friends and family.
LESLIE, PERSONAL INJURY CLIENT
Ryan was knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy. He was like having a lawyer in the family. He was concerned about the whole picture, and made sure our daughter was receiving the medical care she needed to recover.
