Occasionally in life, there is something or someone bigger than us attempting to impose its will over our lives in order to take from us things we hold dear. However, today is not their day. Today is your day. You have found the place for answers, the place to rebalance the playing field and the place for healing. Welcome.
PATRICK A. PALACE - founder of Palace Law Offices.
Patrick Palace opened his office in 1995 to change the perception of injured workers and to improve the laws for the working men and women who needed protection and rehabilitation.
Today he continues to educate injured workers how to protect themselves from the abuses that persist in the system. Over the course of his career he has been published in peer journals, publications, and taught dozens of legal education courses to other lawyers.
He was elected to nine terms on the Washington Association of Justice Board of Governors. Mr. Palace moderated and produced two television series, LawTalk and The People's Law School, which aired statewide.
He was named on the Washington Rising Stars list in 2000 and 2001, and in the Washington Super Lawyers list for 7 years, including 2013. "Super Lawyers" are limited to the top 4% of lawyers. AVVO rates Mr. Palace as an Exceptional Lawyer with a perfect "10".
In June 2008, Mr. Palace was elected to the Washington State Bar Board of Governors by his fellow lawyers. He is one of 14 lawyers who oversee the 36,000 lawyers of the Washington State Bar Association.
In September, 2010 he was elected by the Board of Governors to serve as the Treasurer for the Washington State Bar Association. He regularly practices before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, State Superior Court and is licensed in the Federal Courts for the Western and Eastern District.
In 2012, the Washington State Bar Association membership chose Mr. Palace to serve as President-Elect and in 2013, he will serve as President.
He is a proud father, boastful fisherman and known to listen to his music louder than necessary.
