What Our Clients Say

Kirkwood Association  (September 2019)

 

Our Association was having issues with water intrusion, damage, and costly repairs. On the recommendation of our property manager, we hired Stein, Sudweeks & Stein to see if insurance could provide an option for recovery.

 

Jerry Stein, Justin, and Daniel Stein the firm’s partners, reviewed our insurance and records for free and let us know their thoughts on the strength of our claim prior to Board making a decision to submit claims. The firm did not want to bring a claim that would be unsuccessful and wanted our Board to be well informed.

 

After much hard work the firm obtained substantial recoveries for our Association from a wide range of insurance policies. I am very impressed with the firm’s work effort, communication, and analysis.

Edmonds Seacrest  (September 2019)

 

When we retained Stein, Sudweeks & Stein, our 20 unit condominium was more than 30 years old and facing more than $1.5 million in repairs to the exterior of our buildings.  After reviewing 30 years of property insurance and Association records, Stein, Sudweeks & Stein advised us that we could submit claims for hidden water damage against old, expired property insurance policies to help us defray the cost of our repair project. With the assistance of these extremely knowledgeable attorneys, we were able to recover approximately 80% of the estimated cost of repairs from our property insurers.  The attorneys at Stein, Sudweeks & Stein were very responsive, kept us informed and achieved outstanding results for us. We highly recommend this law firm.

Carlisle Creek  (August 2019)

Our Board would like to thank the attorneys at Stein, Sudweeks & Stein for helping our 84 unit condominium association obtain very substantial settlements against two property insurance carriers.  These recoveries will go a long way towards repairing the damage at our complex from water intrusion caused by long term exposure to wind-driven rain.  The attorneys at the firm worked diligently with us so that we understood the claims process and kept us well-informed so we could be actively involved in making important decisions that ultimately led to settlement.  The firm was able to use its substantial experience with other claims against the same insurance carriers to maximize our settlements. We highly recommend Stein, Sudweeks & Stein to other condominium associations pursuing similar claims - they are very knowledgeable and get excellent results!

Monaco Villas (November 2018)

 

My Homeowners Association worked with the Stein, Sudweeks & Stein firm in an attempt to recover for water intrusion behind our building’s siding.  Stein, Sudweeks & Stein first helped identify all of our historical insurance companies (going back to the 1980s), evaluated their responsibilities, then submitted claims and sued the insurance companies that would not cooperate.  The firm worked diligently to maximize recovery for our Association. I would highly recommend these attorneys.

My Association contacted Stein, Sudweeks & Stein after receiving a water-damage investigation report calling for repair of all the balconies in our community. Daniel Stein worked with us to identify the historical insurers of our Association and then sought recovery from those property insurance companies on our behalf. We are very satisfied with the outcome of our case. We highly recommend these attorneys.

Eastbridge Condominium Association

 

Even though our property was 30 years old (124 condo units), at the time we won a settlement from both insurance companies that helped us start a 5 million dollar repair project.

Bellevue Manor Condominium Association

 

Knowing how long law suits take, we thought it would take years for our case to resolve.  Fortunately for us, we hired the right attorneys (for our collapse coverage case against insurance companies).  If you are looking for trustworthy professionals who can deliver great results in a relatively short period of time- look no further!

Emily Lane HOA

 

​Throughout the process, this firm encountered numerous unique and complex situations and changing laws that regulate the structure and performance of LLCs and their individuals.  Accordingly, this presented a need for innovative approaches and arguments to preserve our right and allow us to pursue the individual developers.  Although there were many twists and turns along the way, this law firm always remained optimistic and very skilled in looking at every angle and opportunity to help us win our case.

 

It is with the utmost confidence that I recommend the services of Stein, Sudweeks & Stein. Unlike some other law firms that often have a reputation of being cold and aloof and just in it for their own monetary reward, we always felt that THIS firm really did care about our personal interests as people and homeowners and suffered thru the anxieties and stresses of this arduous process with us.   it ended up being a true partnership and we made some valued new friends that have earned our deepest gratitude and respect.

Copper Ridge at Talus

 

We at Copper Ridge at Talus want to thank Stein, Sudweeks & Stein for your guidance and skills through our litigation and mediation process against our builder.  When we first reached out to you, we were not sure of our options.  With your expertise you were able to lay it out in terms, we as homeowners could easily understand to make our decision.

Peregrine Point Owners' Association

 

Peregrine Point Owners' Association hired Stein, Sudweeks & Stein for its construction defect litigation based on a potential untested theory that the "new construction" warranties of the Washington Condominium Act should be applicable to the Peregrine Point townhomes, which were remodeled and sold by the developers through one of its subsidiaries.

 

It was a tough decision for the Board, but the detailed approach presented by the firm persuaded us of Stein, Sudweeks & Stein's ability to handle complex scenarios and to employ innovative approaches. 

 

Stein, Sudweeks & Stein are excellent people to work with.  I would recommend Stein, Sudweeks & Stein to any association, after having worked with the firm so closely.

Kirkland Place Condo Association

 

After some preliminary investigations and lack of meaningful responses from the developer who had performed the conversion, we interviewed a few construction defect firms and finally hired Stein  Sudweeks & Stein.  I believe this was a wise decision for many reasons.  The most obvious is the successful result that they achieved on behalf of our association.  After a long and difficult process, they helped us to recover a very significant settlement.  In addition to the positive outcome, I believe that the attorneys from the firm were very diligent and thoughtful in their processes and worked very hard to protect our rights as homeowners.  On one occasion their attention to details saved us from a potential disaster in the case.  I believe their high level of customer service is a rarity in the legal field and for this reason alone believe that they do a job superior to other law firms I have worked with.
