Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell LLP

GTTC is a litigation and trial practice firm with an emphasis on business and commercial litigation, insurance recovery, and personal injury litigation.

At GTTC, we limit our practice to complex civil litigation and trial work with an emphasis in business litigation, insurance recovery, and personal injury litigation.

We prepare every matter, from the beginning, on the assumption it will be tried to verdict. All of our partners are experienced trial lawyers; among them are two Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers and a Member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Viewing the case through the lens of trial serves our clients well, whether or not the case ultimately is tried: even in settlement, you cannot succeed if you are not prepared to win at trial.

The GTTC lawyer you hire is the lawyer who does your work. We do not hire associates right out of law school. We consciously avoid the “pyramid” model of many junior lawyers reporting to a few senior partners. Our partners roll up their sleeves, do the work, and know the facts and law, period.

A lawyer’s greatest asset is his or her judgment—that which is earned predominantly by standing in court, presenting evidence, and persuading judges and juries. We do this everyday by focusing on our client’s ultimate objective and avoiding minor but costly battles that do not advance that objective. Our 20-year track record has proven the value of this approach to our clients.

GTTC attorneys Mark Wilner and Jeffrey M. Thomas, obtained a $1,085,000 settlement for long-time Seattle residents, Cynthia and Marguerite Civa. “The Sisters,” as they are affectionately known throughout the Capitol Hill neighborhood, were severely injured when struck by an SUV as they were crossing Broadway Avenue East on their way home. Both victims were in a designated marked crosswalk when they were struck.

Following a failed early mediation, GTTC litigated the Civas’ case in King County Superior Court and eventually resolved the matter for a settlement involving payments of $200,000 limits from a personal lines auto policy, $850,000 from an excess business auto policy following coverage disputes, and $35,000 from underinsured motorist coverage.


Congratulations, Frank!
