Wrongful Death of Firefighters

We represented the families of two Forest Service Firefighters in a wrongful death action arising from the Thirty-Mile Fire tragedy of 2001. In related litigation, we represented civilians against the U.S. Forest Service for injuries also sustained during the Thirty Mile Fire. Both federal lawsuits were successfully resolved before trial. Hagemeyer v. The United States of America, E.D. Wa Cause No. 2:04-cv-03061; Fitzpatrick v. Anchor Industries Inc., E.D. Wa Cause No. 2:04-cv-03123
