Attorney Jeff Aultman
My name is Jeff Aultman, and I grew up in Coupeville, Washington. My parents ran a cabinet business there before starting a small residential construction business. I learned from them the meaning of a dollar and hard work. After obtaining a degree in aeronautical science, I served in the U.S. Air Force. I then went to law school in Texas. Following graduation, I took a job with the largest civil litigation law firm in Spokane. I then returned to Texas to work at a nationally-known civil litigation firm in San Antonio before moving to Tri-Cities, Washington. After 17 years of practicing law, I have handled hundreds of civil cases, some simple and some complex. I have tried cases to juries in Washington, Idaho and Texas. I have also spoken at several continuing legal education seminars for attorneys and served as a guest judge at Gonzaga University School of Law. My areas of practice are business litigation, construction defect, insurance defense and personal injury.
My Goals As Your Attorney
It has always been my goal to start a law practice that focuses on client satisfaction. As my client, you are the focus. I will provide you with timely answers to your questions, honest assessments and the best strategy to resolve your case. In my experience, most clients don’t want their cases resolved at a trial. I appreciate that. The reality is over 90% of cases settle before trial. So, it’s more likely your case will settle and not require a jury trial. But I prepare every case as if it will go to trial because an attorney who only prepares a case for settlement is an unprepared attorney. You need an attorney who is prepared and capable of presenting your case to a jury if necessary. Contact me to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your case. You may find you don’t need legal representation. If you do, I can help.
