Attorney Profile

The founder of Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, Dean Standish Perkins has focused his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation since 1986. From the firm's offices in both Seattle and Mount Vernon, Washington, he provides representation to clients throughout the western part of the state who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties. Admitted to practice before all Washington state courts, Mr. Perkins has received recognition from his fellow attorneys for his successful track record and high degree of ethics, including a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo. In addition, he has been selected for inclusion in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100, and the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys has named him as one of Top 10 Personal Injury Attorneys in Washington state.

Mr. Perkins devotes a significant portion of his practice to truck, car and other motor vehicle crashes. His cases have also included auto-pedestrian, bicycle and boating accidents, and his experience has encompassed lawsuits arising out of unsafe conditions and other aspects of premises liability. During his career, Mr. Perkins has been able to obtain millions of dollars for his plaintiff clients, through jury verdicts, arbitration awards and negotiated settlements.

Outside the office, Mr. Perkins has spent considerable time mentoring young attorneys through his participation as a director of Seattle University School of Law's Low Bono Incubator Program. This is designed to help sole practitioners as well as attorneys at small firms serve clients who make too much money to qualify for legal aid but who can't afford to pay big law firm fees. Mr. Perkins is a graduate of that law school, having been awarded his Juris Doctor in 1985, and he serves his alma mater as an adjunct professor.
