Attorney Thomas B. Vertetis is a partner at the law office of Pfau Cochran Vertetis Amala PLLC. Since joining the firm in 2009, Mr. Vertetis has focused on representing the interests and protecting the rights of clients from Seattle, Tacoma and throughout Washington state's Puget Sound region in a wide range of civil matters, including those related to the following:

  • Personal injury
  • Wrongful death
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • School liability
  • Civil rights

Mr. Vertetis began his legal career in 1994 after earning his law degree from Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law and his admission to the Washington State Bar Association. In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court also granted its approval for him to practice law in its courtroom.

Prior to changing his focus to civil litigation, Mr. Vertetis worked as an assistant prosecuting attorney in New Jersey. Since becoming a civil trial attorney, he has used the experience he gained in criminal law to benefit the plaintiffs he represents, which has resulted in numerous courtroom successes, including multiple verdicts in excess of $1 million.

Over the past 20-plus years, Mr. Vertetis has earned the respect of both his clients and his peers, thanks to his dedication, determination and record of success. This combination has led to a number of awards and honors, including a "Superb" rating from Avvo, a Local Hero Award from the Washington State Bar Association, a Pro Bono Award from the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association and a place among the nation's Top 40 under 40, according to The National Trial Lawyers.
