John Graffe

“I’ve been a trial attorney for more than 30 years, but this experience is new for most of my clients. I know they have a lot of questions, a lot of concerns, and a whole lot of anxiety. My job is to take time, listen and see things from their perspective."

DECADES OF EXPERIENCE, RIGHT HERE AT HOME

For more than three decades, John Graffe has defended clients in professional liability cases, primarily involving health care. John appreciates the complexities and nuances of his ever-evolving area.

In his spare time, John enjoys sailing and skiing the Pacific Northwest, which he’s called home all his life.
