We are pleased to announce that attorney, Arthur D. Leritz, has joined Adler Giersch ps. Mr. Leritz is a graduate of the University of Washington in 1996 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. He then obtained his Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Willamette University’s College of Law in 1999.
Mr. Leritz comes to our firm after many years working for insurance companies handling complex cases including several trials in both state and federal courts. Richard H. Adler, managing partner at Adler Giersch ps notes that, “Mr. Leritz will be a tremendous asset for our traumatically injured clients and our law firm. He brings to us the ‘insider’s perspective’ as an attorney that worked for insurers. We have seen his tough advocacy in action and we know that he can be effective.” Mr. Adler added with some humor, “that despite working for the ‘dark side of the force’ Mr. Leritz always struck us as someone that at heart belonged representing those with traumatic injuries. And we were right. We are delighted to have Mr. Leritz at our firm. He will strengthen our know-how to effectively fight insurance companies that do not do the right thing for our clients.”
Mr. Leritz started at Adler Giersch ps in August 2010. He will be working directly with Mr. Adler and providing input to the other attorneys in the firm. When asked about the change from representing insurance companies to those with traumatic injuries, Mr. Leritz added, “I finally feel like I have returned to my true calling – representing those who have been injured. The last few years I had grown increasingly frustrated doing an outstanding job for insurance companies with the empty feeling that all I was doing was saving them money, at the expense of someone who was hurt. Now, I get to use my knowledge, training and ‘insider perspective’ to help those at a very fragile point in their lives.”
Mr. Leritz is married to his high school sweetheart, Desiree, and they reside in the Everett area. In his spare time Mr. Leritz enjoys restoring vintage Volkswagens. When you come to our office and see a vintage, but shiny green VW bug or bus, you will know that Mr. Leritz is in the house. He is also currently restoring a 1957 DKW 3=6 Sonderklasse.
