Title: The Basics of Workers’ Compensation
Attorney George Telquist of Telaré Law is well known in Washington legal circles as an personal injury lawyer in Walla Walla, WA who advocates for victims. George has litigated cases at all levels. He represents clients in several counties in and throughout the state of Washington.
George is known as a skilled negotiator during arbitration and has also built a solid reputation as an exceptional trial attorney in both jury trials and arguments before the Washington State Supreme Court. His State Supreme Court experience includes significantly changing the law in granting minors access to courts for injuries suffered at the hands of health care providers.
That reputation he has earned shows in the success he has had during his two-decades-long career, obtaining multiple jury awards in the millions of dollars, as well as tens of millions of dollars in settlements for victims from insurance carriers.
After graduating from Gonzaga School of Law and his admission to the Washington State Bar Association, George went to work for a law firm where he did insurance defense work, representing insurance companies and other litigants who were against injured victims. It is during this time that he realized that in order to make a difference and help those that really needed it, he needed to represent the victim and not the liable party.
This is why at Telaré Law, George only represents clients who have been injured in vehicle accidents, medical malpractice cases, large tort claims, and other types of claims where the victim was injured because of the negligence or recklessness of another party.
George is grateful for his ability to be able to assist victims who are injured at the hands of others, finding it both rewarding and fulfilling. When not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially in the great outdoors that Washington has to offer.
