I have worked with Mr. Albert in a variety of capacities – as a colleague, as co-counsel, as a client – and I can say without qualification that he is simply one of the finest, most intelligent lawyers currently practicing in Seattle. However, what truly sets him apart from the small cohort who match him in intelligence and ability is that he truly cares about how his conduct affects the well-being of his clients. No quick, cheap settlements here. He strives to achieve the last full measure for his clients, to get them their just due, regardless of the effort it costs him or the risks to his bottom line. He’s one of the good guys. Go with him and before long you’ll stop telling lawyer jokes. He’s that good.
