Attorney Mark Leemon is a shareholder at the highly respected Seattle law firm Leemon + Royer, PLLC. At the firm, which he co-founded with his wife, he focuses his practice on protecting the rights of innocent victims living throughout Washington State's Puget Sound region and beyond by representing their interests in cases stemming from the following:

  • Government misconduct and negligence
  • Violent crimes
  • Premises liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Sexual abuse and misconduct
  • Nursing home neglect
  • Wrongful death
  • Automobile and Truck accidents
  • Defective and dangerous products

Mr. Leemon began his legal career in 1973 after earning his law degree from Harvard Law School and his admission to the Washington State Bar Association. In addition to his license to practice in all of Washington's state courts, he has been admitted to practice in Hawaii, and by the U.S. District Court for the Western and Eastern Districts of Washington, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Over the course of Mr. Leemon's 40-plus year legal career, he has secured countless settlements and jury verdicts for his clients, many of which resulted in multimillion-dollar awards. His long record of success in both negotiations and litigation has earned him the respect of both his clients and his peers, as evidenced by his selection as the 2009 statewide Washington Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Washington State Association for Justice.

Mr. Leemon is an active member of the legal community. He has been a member of several committees in both the Washington State and King County Bar Associations, and has served the WSBA as  Special Disciplinary Counsel.
