“I was in a car accident and was very naive. I thought that the insurance companies would do the right and fair thing. I was very mistaken! After three years of dealing with these companies I was shocked, they weren’t going to be fair at all! Frustrated, I called “Snohomish County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service.” I was given a few names. I called Ben Wells office. I spoke with his office explaining my dilemma. Ben called me back personally within hours. Ben Wells and his office are very understanding, efficient and extremely approachable. I didn’t need any money up front. The first time I met with Ben Wells, as well as all the other times that I spoke with him and his office, I felt that I was the most important person at that time. Please don’t wait till your ” Statute of Limitations” is up like I did! You will be very happy with the peace of mind and reduction of stress that Ben Wells office will provide you!”
Grateful in Arlington, WA
I would not hire anyone but Ben to take care of the situation.
“My family used the services of Ben Wells after an auto accident and we were extremely pleased with the personal care and concern and attention that was given. I can’t say that I would ever want to experience litigation again, but should that need ever arise, I would not hire anyone but Ben to take care of the situation.”
He is truly a caring individual and that makes him the best lawyer ever!
“I would recommend Ben Wells and his law firm to family, friends, or anyone that is seeking professional and competent representation. I was so impressed with the personal attention he and Beth provided as they take, or make, time for you when you have any questions, no matter how often you have them. The promise to keep costs low was fulfilled beyond my expectation. I also received the maximum available in my settlement! However, the best part for me was the humanity that is a part of who Ben is. He is truly a caring individual and that makes him the best lawyer ever!”
I would highly recommend Ben Wells for his hard work, dedication and skillful representation.
“I hired Ben Wells to represent me when I was injured in a collision after I hit a cow that was loose on a busy highway at night. The cow’s owner had routinely failed to fix his fences and his cows had been a hazard to the surrounding community for a long time. He refused to pay for my damaged vehicle and accused me of hitting the cow on purpose. Unfortunately, I had to sue the owner of the cow. My case went to trial and Ben obtained a verdict for over $380,000 in my favor. The cow owner appealed. The case proceeded to the Court of Appeals, where a decision was made in my favor. The cow owner appealed again, this time to the Supreme Court of Washington State. When the cow owner finally exhausted all possible means of appeal, he still refused to pay, and additional legal action had to be taken. We were able to collect on the judgment with over $50,000 in interest that had accrued while the legal battle went on. I am very pleased with how my case was presented at trial, and all of the hard work that Ben Wells and his staff put in throughout the appeals process. I would highly recommend Ben Wells for his hard work, dedication and skillful representation.”
His hard work and dedication to my case resulted in an outcome that was better than I had expected.
“Ben Wells represented me for a personal injury claim resulting from a car accident. The accident happened when a road construction crew member tried to cross the road in front of my car. The construction company disputed that my injuries were caused by the collision, and disputed that my injuries were permanent. The case went all the way to a jury trial. Before the trial began, the insurance company had offered me $135,000 to settle my claim. Once trial was underway, they offered $150,000. Ben worked hard to learn the story of my case, and during trial always presented my case truthfully. Ben obtained a jury verdict for almost $940,000. I would highly recommend Ben Wells. His hard work and dedication to my case resulted in an outcome that was better than I had expected.”
They kept me informed every step of the way and forced the insurance company to do the right thing.
“I hired Ben Wells to represent me for a car accident. I was stopped in a line of traffic when my car was hit from behind by a car traveling at high speed. I received a scar to my forehead and my car was totaled. The insurance company refused to settle my injury claim or pay for my car. There were multiple parties involved in this collision and it appeared that there may not be enough insurance to compensate everyone involved. Ben Wells and his staff never wavered in their efforts to obtain a fair settlement for me. When the insurance company refused to pay, they filed a lawsuit and proceeded toward trial. Shortly before the trial date, the insurance company finally offered a fair out of court settlement of $70,000 for my injuries and damaged car. I recommend Wells Trumbull. They kept me informed every step of the way and forced the insurance company to do the right thing.”
Ben and his staff aggressively pursued the case while maintaining a high level of compassion to our family.
“I want to extend a personal and heartfelt thank you to Ben Wells and his entire staff. Ben represented my daughter after she was sexually molested. Ben and his staff aggressively pursued the case while maintaining a high level of compassion to our family. I trust Ben Wells and his sage advice, I would strongly recommend him.”
He provided us with resources and ideas on how to best utilize the settlement money to improve my daughter’s future and continues to be a part of her support team.
"Ben represented my developmentally challenged daughter for injuries she received in a very serious car crash. Her case involved multiple vehicles, including trucking companies from two states. My daughter sustained a mild head injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Prior to the collision, my daughter had a cognitive disorder that caused some developmental delays. The defendants tried to blame her problems after the accident on her pre-existing condition. There were 5 insurance company lawyers against Ben and they were very experienced. Ben met with family and friends to gather evidence of the dramatic changes in my daughter’s life that could not have been learned about by just reading her medical records. He visited the family here in Ellensburg a number of times so he could learn my daughter’s story. Because of these efforts, he was able to tell her story beautifully and had common sense evidence the insurance company lawyers could not refute. His hard work and skill resulted in a very favorable settlement of over a half million dollars.
The family member who was driving my daughter at the time of the accident was brought into the litigation. This caused a lot of stress and emotional trauma to our family. Ben was very aware of these difficulties and did everything he could to minimize the effects on our family. He took an interest in my daughter’s well-being beyond just obtaining money for her. He provided us with resources and ideas on how to best utilize the settlement money to improve my daughter’s future and continues to be a part of her support team. Ben proved that people with developmental disabilities deserve justice and can get it if their story is truthfully told."
My first time getting into accident was scary...
"My first time getting into accident was scary but Wells Trumbull made it easy to understand! Thank you!"
He will not back down and will leave no stone unturned as he optimizes your rightful compensation.
"Ben did an excellent job in handling my case. If there’s one thing you want in an attorney, it’s experience, and Ben has it. He will not back down and will leave no stone unturned as he optimizes your rightful compensation."
Ben, Josh and the whole team at Wells Trumbull carried us through one of the most difficult times in our lives after a serious accident.
"Another lawyer we knew had tried to get a reasonable settlement from the insurance company and they refused to be reasonable. When it became obvious we were going to have to go to trial our other lawyer said we should bring on Ben Wells and his team. They spent countless hours with our family and my medical team to really understand what we were going through and became an extension of our family in the process. Ben and Josh aren't scared to hold the insurance companies accountable by presenting the truth. By the end when they presented our case the jury fully understood what our family had gone through and the verdict proved that. I wake up every day in pain but I have been able to modify my life to still have some enjoyment thanks to the outcome. If you are having to deal with an accident and the insurance companies you definitely need Wells Trumbull on your side to hold them accountable for their antics."
Ben and Josh were great to work with made sure to really listen to us and took their time with us...
"Ben and Josh were great to work with made sure to really listen to us and took their time with us, they did a lot for my family and pushed to give us the best they possibly could."
They will go above, and beyond for their clients.
"Highly recommend Wells/Trumbull law group! They will go above, and beyond for their clients. Great people, with a true drive to support you in your time of need. Local, Reliable, and Fair."
I am so very grateful for Ben; he is my hero.
"I am a single mother with four children. My son, David, was in a terrible construction accident five years ago. He was a pipe layer and while working on a job, his legs were crushed by a excavator. For your information, an average excavator weighs twenty-four tons...48,000 pounds! My son, David, was twenty-eight years old and weighed 145 pounds. I will never forget seeing my son lying on that hospital table and hearing the examining doctor say to me, "Mrs. Walter, your son is very lucky." I looked at him, thinking my son is lucky; are you crazy? He then said, "In accidents like these, we are either cutting off both of their legs or they are dead."
David and I pursued legal action. The accident was not only the cause of excavator operator error but, more importantly, the the conditions at his worksite were unsafe. My son had no way out of the ditch when the excavator bucket came down and was crushing his legs, he had no escape. Out of sheer luck...no I believe we were being guided by our angels; we called an attorney, Ben Wells.
On our first meeting, David and I were understandably anxious and apprehensive. We were expecting to meet an attorney in a very expensive suit with an even more expensive demeanor. We were pleasantly surprised. Ben and Josh, his associate, were nothing like that. They were kind, caring and they actually listened when we talked. Believe this or not, Ben walked into the room in a flannel shirt and jeans!
Four years later, my son won his case. Trust me, those four years were four of the hardest, most grueling years of our lives. It was emotionally, physically, psychologically and financially exhausting. During the trial, Ben left no stone unturned. He did his job to the utmost of excellence. His diligence, perseverance, dedication, sheer vitality and grit serve him well...he wins his cases! Importantly, I must add that during the entire time of the trial not one dime was paid to Ben and his legal team. In fact, Ben and Josh helped David financially. My son was not able to work due to his injuries, but they gave him jobs to help him financially and emotionally. Ben Wells helped my injured son. They helped him by whole heartedly representing him, supporting him and winning!
There was another driving force for Ben in David's case. He did not want this to happen to another pipe layer's mother or loved one. Now because of him, a pipe layer's mother will never have to look at her son lying on a hospital bed, perhaps awaiting amputation of both legs or death. Safety measures were mandated and a law was created to protect against this...all thanks to Ben Wells and his team.
Needless to say my son's life has taken a three hundred and sixty degree turn. Granted, David's legs will never be the same, but he was given an new chance in life by Ben and his team. He will never have to get into another ditch. He has been able to buy his own home and he is growing/doing a career he loves. I have to share this...on mother's day this year, I received an unconceivable gift from my David. He bought me a home on a lake...my dream home. This old, single mother now has a place she can forever call her home!
I am so very grateful for Ben; he is my hero. I will always admire him for his courage, outstanding achievements and his noble qualities. He truly is amazing...brilliant, charming, amiable, and astute. He is a people's person with a beautiful heart. He is an angel; a light that we were given to guide us in the dark times of our lives. I will forever be indebted to Ben and his magnificent team. To say thank you is such an understatement. It falls so short of how I actually feel.
My wish for this wonderful man and his team is this...may the most that they want in this life, be the very least that they receive."
