- Gibson vs. American Construction Company, Inc.
- Lunsford vs. Saberhagen Holdings
- Coulter vs. Asten Group, Inc.
Zach Herschensohn has been a litigator since 2003—and he’s been dedicated to injury victims. He has been practicing personal injury law in the State of Washington and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington where he was admitted respectively in 2003 and 2005. His first job as a lawyer was at Levinson Friedman in Seattle, where he was introduced to the Jones Act, maritime injury law, product liability, and personal injury law more broadly. From there, he has advocated for a wide range of plaintiffs, including:
- Seamen who were injured during their employment
- Construction workers who were exposed to harmful substances
- Victims of medical negligence, including defective drugs and devices
- Victims of car accidents
- Victims of premises liability
- Victims of sexual abuse
His home is Washington State, and Mr. Herschensohn has sought compensation for victims in Kings County, Spokane County, Clark County, and several other counties across the state. However, he takes his passion for personal injury law beyond state lines. Mr. Herschensohn has served injury clients in Oregon, California, Indiana, and Alaska.
Zach Herschenson is a member of the 1997 graduating class at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Theory with a minor in Environmental Science. He went on to get his law degree at St. John’s University School of Law in Jamaica, New York in 2002. During his time there, he was a Finalist in the James F. Niehoff Trial Competition and a Moot Court team member.
Zach Herschensohn has lived and breathed law for 20 years, having wrung millions of dollars in recovery from the insurance industry, marine employers and producers of harmful products. Through that time, he has gained deep knowledge of how best to put pressure on defendants and insurers to get more money for his clients. But what’s his true secret to this success?
According to Mr. Herschensohn, it takes more than education and experience with the legal system—it’s dedication, hard work and when necessary unbridled aggression on behalf of his clients. He likes to say, he “fights for you, as if it was me who got hurt!”
If you were hurt in an accident, at your workplace or anywhere in Washington, have Herschensohn Law prosecute your case.

Bethany Curtis has been a paralegal for the firm since April of 2021 when she and attorney Ann-Marie Evans of AME Law joined the Herschensohn Law team. She previously worked alongside Ann-Marie since 2019, when she graduated with honors from Tacoma Community College’s esteemed ABA-approved Paralegal Studies program. Bethany works out of our Graham, Washington office and handles all aspects of cases from start to finish.
“I decided to join the personal injury law field largely because I have been through the process of injury-causing car accidents as a client myself. I’ve seen first-hand how poorly insurance companies can treat an injured person and want to make sure that our clients have a true advocate for their accident cases and are treated—and compensated—fairly by insurance companies. No one should ever be injured through no fault of their own and have to worry about having their bills paid while trying to recover from those injuries. I want to help make sure that isn’t the case for our clients.”
Outside of the office, Bethany enjoys camping, reading, cooking, and spending time with her family and two dogs. She’s looking forward to continuing to work with the Herschensohn Law team for a long time.
Erica Ross has been a paralegal for the law firm since March of 2022. She previously worked for Farmers Insurance handling high exposure injury claims where she gained knowledge and understanding behind the value of injury claims and how to negotiate them accordingly and fairly.
Erica graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and achieved highest honors upon graduation. Erica works out of our Kent, Washington office handling prelitigation and arbitration-level cases.
“I decided to join the personal injury law field because of my previous investigative experience, negotiation skills, and desire to help victims of all kinds of personal injuries. I want to make a difference in our client’s lives by striving to get them the best possible case outcomes and ensure they’re fairly compensated for their time lost and injuries sustained.”
Outside of the office, Erica enjoys spending time with her friends, playing with her two dogs and cat, playing video games, cooking, and watching movies.
Anna Barrett graduated with honors from Tacoma Community College’s esteemed ABA-approved Paralegal Studies program. Anna joined the Herschensohn Law team as a prelitigation paralegal in March of 2022 and works out of our Graham, Washington office.
“I have always found law fascinating. It can be used as a shield to defend yourself or as a sword when you need to attack. I earned my paralegal degree and began working with Herschensohn Law because I want to help people. When you’re hurt and need someone, I want to fight for you.”
Outside of the office, Anna enjoys baking, reading, and spending time with her friends exploring the great Pacific Northwest.
