About Benjamin Pepper
Consultations are always absolutely free.
I was born and raised in Bellingham, and am lucky to have great friends and mentors in the local legal community. I began working for a local law firm in high school when I was just 16 years old, and then worked as a paralegal after graduating from college. That experience served me well in law school, and I graduated magna cum laude from Lewis & Clark Law School in Oregon in 2012. During law school I was honored to serve as lead articles editor of the Lewis & Clark Law Review, teaching assistant for the legal writing program and several other classes, research assistant to the Dean of the law school, and as a judicial extern at the United States District Court for the District of Oregon.
After law school, I served as a judicial law clerk at the Oregon Court of Appeals, and then worked on several major class action and MDL cases, including the Volkswagen "Clean Diesel" litigation, the Wells Fargo unauthorized accounts litigation, the Equifax data breach litigation, and the Syngenta GMO Corn litigation.
After returning to Washington to start a family, I opened my own law firm here in Bellingham (although I serve clients throughout Northwest Washington, including Blaine, Ferndale, Mount Vernon, Burlington, and even Everett and Seattle). My firm focuses on serious injury and wrongful death cases—helping injury victims and their families recover fair compensation from insurance companies or culpable third parties.
In injury and wrongful death cases, I work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that clients pay no attorneys' fees up front, and clients pay absolutely no attorneys' fees whatsoever unless I obtain compensation for them. Attorneys' fees are simply calculated as a percentage of any money recovered for clients. In other words, in personal injury and wrongful death cases, I only get paid if my client gets paid.
Additionally, I recognize that health is priceless, so in addition to vigorously pursuing monetary claims for clients, my staff and I take pride in advocating for clients and being there to help them navigate the healthcare and insurance systems and other challenges. Our goal is to take the stress and complex logistics off of clients' shoulders so they can focus on healing.
I also speak fluent Spanish, and I am proud to offer legal services in both English and Spanish.
ESPAÑOL: Hablo español fluido—mi esposa es Venezolana y hablamos solo español en casa. Es un placer atender a la gran comunidad hispanohablante del Noroeste de Washington. Podemos ayudar con todo tipo de accidentes y lesiones, incluyendo accidentes automovilísticos. Las consultas son absolutamente gratis, y no hay que pagar honorarios hasta que ganemos su caso. Es decir, el cliente no va a pagar nada del dinero de su bolsillo; simplemente de lo que se ha recuperado para el cliente se aparta un porcentaje para el pago de honorarios de abogado.
