Welcome Aboard, Jane Dale!

Ahoy there!!  The Causey Law Firm team has just added attorney Jane E. Dale to our lineup. After graduating from Seattle University School of Law in 2007, Jane was an associate with a prominent general practice firm on the Olympic Peninsula, covering a wide range of civil and criminal matters.  She then practiced with a public defender firm in the Shoreline area, handling a high-volume criminal caseload with extensive jury trial experience.  For the past two years she has practiced with another workers’ compensation firm in the Seattle area, gaining substantial experience litigating cases before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and with jury trials of those cases in Superior Court.

Jane joins Brian Wright on our litigation team, and will cover the full range of workers’ compensation systems cases handled by Causey Law Firm, with potentially some additional work in the employment law field.

Jane’s background is very similar to Brian’s: grew up in the Kent area, went to the University of Washington, gaining a BA in Business Administration and Finance, received a law degree from Seattle U. with honors, where she was also an editor of a law periodical, represented the law school in Moot Court competition, and was a Mock Trial competitor.  In 2010, she was denominated a Washington State “Rising Star” attorney.  She enjoys litigating on behalf of injured workers and fighting “the man,” and brings additional depth and power to our team.

Jane enjoys a variety of athletics, and is a frequent and enthusiastic traveler.  Expect to see more pictures from her adventures on our website in the future.

A milestone celebration!

25 years, and still smiling!

This week marks the 25th anniversary of our firm’s longest tenured employee, Kit Case.  As a workers’ compensation and Longshore paralegal, Kit has helped literally thousands of injured workers over the past quarter century.  She is a knowledgeable guide and compassionate listener to those lost and overwhelmed by the system, but also a fierce advocate for workers’ rights.  

Kit became the firm’s administrator ten years ago, expanding her job to include human resources, benefits, and marketing in addition to her case work.  Kit has been our guiding force in initiating and maintaining our blog and web presence.   She also encouraged four of our former Causey law firm legal assistants (including our attorney Brian Wright) to pursue law school.  

Given her experience here, she is called upon often to teach our employees how to navigate the often murky and turbulent waters of workers’ compensation. She has accomplished all of this while still enjoying a rich life which includes sailing, scuba diving, art and cycling, frequently commuting to work on her bike.  

We applauded and toasted Kit’s immeasurable contributions to the firm on Friday– appropriately, near the water.  Thank you for everything, Kit!
