A native Washingtonian, Al grew up in Kent and graduated from Kent-Meridian High School. He graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in government (political philosophy) with high honors and then pursued graduate work in political philosophy at Yale University. Al then moved to New York City to work as a jazz bassist before attending Brooklyn Law School, where he served as Executive Articles Editor for the Brooklyn Law Review. Missing the Pacific Northwest, after earning his J.D., Al returned to Seattle with his new wife and served as law clerk to Judge Barbara Durham of the Washington State Court of Appeals for a year before becoming a Deputy Prosecutor with the Criminal Division of the King County Prosecutor’s Office. Al served in that capacity for almost six years and tried numerous felony cases ranging from sexual assault and child abuse to homicides. In 1990, Al left the Prosecutor’s Office and spent the next 18 years as house counsel for major insurance companies and in private practice focusing on civil litigation and specifically, insurance defense and construction defect matters.
In 2008, Al opened his own solo law practice focusing almost exclusively on representing plaintiffs in various types of civil litigation, including personal injury matters, insurance coverage disputes, insurance bad faith litigation, and employment discrimination claims.
Al lives in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood with his wife, also an attorney. Their daughter is a student at Bellevue College. Outside his law practice, Al is a bass player in the local jazz scene and an avid (though mostly unsuccessful) fly fisherman. He also tutors regularly through Seattle’s Invest in Youth organization.
