Owner and managing partner of Causey Wright, Brian M. Wright serves disabled and injured workers in Seattle in claims of workers’ compensation. He represents clients before the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries and those covered by the federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, including overseas defense contractors, waterfront workers and domestic non-appropriated fund employees at U.S. military installations.

A graduate of the University of Washington, Mr. Wright earned a Bachelor of Arts in both political science and Japan studies in 2009 before attending Seattle University School of Law, where in 2012 he obtained his Juris Doctor.

Mr. Wright also occasionally litigates a Jones Act/maritime case and collaborates with other firms on cases involving those who have asbestos-related diseases and are filing suit against the state of Washington. An Eagle member of the Washington State Association for Justice, he also works with the nonprofit organization Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group. This organization focuses on representing the interests and rights of those who have been injured on the job and their family members, and Mr. Wright is proud to be an integral part of that process.
