Williams Kastner is distinguished by its long history in defending commercial host establishments against liquor liability claims in both Washington and Oregon. The firm represents insureds of liability carriers, self-insured corporate businesses and municipalities in civil and appellate litigation. Our experience includes advocacy and representation of clients who are facing claims related to drunk driving accidents, bar fights, service to minors (alcohol poisoning, injuries to self or others), and other accidents that involve commercial host liability. We have extensive familiarity with all of the issues that commonly arise in liquor liability, including analysis of BAC levels, licensing, standards of intoxication, and contributory negligence/assumption of risk. This area of law is constantly changing, and our attorneys make it a point to always stay abreast of legal developments.

Williams Kastner has tried more personal injury and professional negligence cases to verdict than any other firm in the Northwest. Our attorneys are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Defense Research Institute, including one who served as president.

The enormous breadth of our practical experience enables our attorneys to minimize, if not avoid, litigation costs and maximize the probability of successful outcomes in the defense of liquor liability and personal injury suits.
