Personal injury lawyer in Walla Walla, WA George Telquist has been advocating for victims for more than two decades. He is a graduate of Washington State University and Gonzaga School of Law. Following his admission to the Washington State Bar Association, George went to work for a law firm where he did insurance defense work, representing insurance companies and other litigants who were against injured victims. It is during this time that he realized that in order to make a difference and help those that really needed it, he needed to represent the victim and not the liable party.
This is why at Telaré Law, George only represents clients who have been injured in vehicle accidents, medical malpractice cases, large tort claims, and other types of claims where the victim was injured because of the negligence or recklessness of another party.
The respect he has earned in Washington legal circles shows in the success he has had during his 20-plus years long career, obtaining multiple jury awards in the millions of dollars, as well as tens of millions of dollars in settlements for victims from insurance carriers.
George has extensive experience litigating injury cases at all levels, from arbitration to jury trials, all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court. His skill as a litigator has even resulted in significantly changing the law in granting minors access to courts for injuries suffered at the hands of health care providers.
When not practicing law, George enjoys spending time with his family, especially in the great outdoors that Washington has to offer.
