At Cascade Law, we provide personal, uncompromising legal services for individual people, families and small businesses in the areas of serious personal injury, wrongful death, insurance claims/denials of coverage, and other complicated civil litigation. Our attorneys are often retained in complex civil cases, with multiple multi-million dollar recoveries for our clients.
We represent clients throughout Washington state, including in King County, Snohomish County, Pierce County, and Skagit County. Our office is located in downtown Everett, steps away from the courthouse. We have experience handling matters across the state of Washington, from Seattle to Spokane, in both state and federal courts.
We are a deeply seasoned and experienced litigation team of attorneys, paralegals, and support staff who are passionate in advocating on behalf of our clients. In running our practice, we are guided by our four core principals:
Give a Voice
Oftentimes when a person has been harmed, treated unfairly, or oppressed by the actions of another, they feel powerless – as though their voice has been taken away from them. Our mission at Cascade Law is to bring that voice back, loud and clear. We work tirelessly to let the voices of our clients be heard, especially in situations where society or the legal system has left them speechless.
Shine a Light
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.” -MLK, Jr. Wrongdoers often seek to hide or obscure their actions and the truth. We work passionately to uncover and expose the truth, shining a light on the actions of those who would otherwise hide behind closed doors.
Though imperfect, our society has pronounced our legal system to be the greatest arena to hold accountable those whose actions (or inactions) have harmed another. We vigorously prosecute cases on behalf of our clients to ensure that justice has a chance to be realized. In some cases, our clients may be the victims of a crime, and we advocate on their behalf with law enforcement to hold their aggressors accountable.
Tell the Story
We endeavor to hear and retell our clients' stories. Oftentimes, the hardest part of the legal journey is just getting the chance to have that day in court. At Cascade Law, we fight tirelessly to remove the obstacles put in the path of our clients and enable them to share their experience with the world.
About Umar Gebril
Umar grew up in a small, rural community in Western Washington, and was drawn to the law from an early age. Umar began a banking career fresh out of high school, and completed his undergraduate degree by attending Running Start and then worked full time while earning a bachelor’s in Law & Justice from Central Washington University. After graduating from Central, Umar continued to feel the pull of law and decided to go to law school.
Umar continued working full time and started a new mortgage business while attending law school at Seattle University School of Law, completing and earning his Juris Doctor. His mortgage business quickly found great success (with Umar ranking in the top 20 loan officers nationally), before he eventually decided to sell the business, thereby allowing him to practice law full time.
Umar says, “Few things are more noble than the practice of law, and nothing I’ve done professionally gives me more personal satisfaction and fulfillment than being able to represent those in need - particularly those who have been harmed or treated unfairly by another. It’s incredibly rewarding to be a part of bringing them closure and a measure of justice.”
About Joseph Moore
Joe grew up in Western Washington, and returned back to the area after completing his college education. Prior to law school, Joe completed a master’s degree in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. Afterward completing his theology degree, Joe chose to go to law school, because in his words, “I believed the legal profession would allow me to make a practical difference in the lives of others.”
Joe worked full time throughout law school. Despite a very full academic and professional schedule, he graduated magna cum laude in the top 10% of his class from Seattle University School of Law with his Juris Doctor. In his last year of law school, Joe worked as a law clerk at a firm in downtown Seattle that focused exclusively on representing persons wronged by their insurance company or individuals who suffered a personal injury.
Joe says, “I feel lucky to be able to practice law in areas where I get to represent individual people who need legal help to overcome a crisis. I believe that ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I fight hard for what I believe is right and just, often against insurance companies who have either lost or simply never possessed the ability to understand loss.”
