Corrie Yackulic is regarded as a formidable legal strategist, a tough and tenacious negotiator, and a highly effective trial lawyer. She is also compassionate towards clients who have been seriously injured or suffered the loss of a family member. Communication with clients is a trait her clients appreciate, and she fights fiercely to secure her clients the best possible outcome—in settlement negotiations or in trial. Her abilities have yielded results for her clients totaling in the tens of millions.
Raised in the Pacific Northwest, and graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School, Corrie represents clients throughout the Western United States. Peers across the U.S. collaborate with Corrie in case strategy when cases, such as dangerous and defective products cases, stretch across multiple states. Corrie is Preeminent AV rated (Martindale Hubbell) by her peers for her legal skill and legal ethics.
In 1990, she joined one of the largest personal injury/wrongful death plaintiff firms in the Pacific Northwest, representing individuals and classes of people seriously injured as a result of medical negligence, products liability, maritime accidents, serious construction injury, auto, truck, pedestrian accidents, urban bicyclist injury and death, environmental torts (Corrie represented the majority of plaintiffs in the Oso landslide disaster), and other serious injury/wrongful death cases.
Many cases, such as Johnson and Johnson Talcum powder and ovarian cancer cases, clearly affect women, particularly women of color and women who are overweight. These cases involve sensitive discussions. When women call CJY Law, they will have the comfort of speaking with a woman at the firm who will treat them with care and compassion.
Corrie has practiced law since 1986, and is licensed to practice in both state and federal courts in Washington, and in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. She founded Corrie Yackulic Law in 2009.
