Jed W. Barden

I represent individuals who have been seriously injured because of someone else's careless or intentional act. I also assist family representatives when a family member's death was caused by another's negligence. If you find yourself in this situation and are looking for assistance, I would like to help you. Dealing with a serious injury or death can be overwhelming and I work hard to take the legal burden off your shoulders. Ultimately, I want you to obtain justice and appropriate compensation for your loss. 

The types of injury and death cases I work on varies but generally fall into the following categories: personal injury (bicycle crashes, pedestrian crashes, auto crashes, motorcycle crashes), workplace injuries, dog bites and attacks, premises liability (conditions on property causing harm), products liability (products/equipment causing harm), medical negligence, and sexual assault and abuse. Our firm has been recognized for its legal excellence and customer service. We take pride in the large number of satisfied clients we have served over the years. We enjoy meeting clients for the first time, taking the legal burden off their shoulders, and seeing the case all the way through to a successful result. 

I have been an attorney since 2006 and take cases throughout the State of Washington. Most of our cases are in the Spokane region where our main office is located. I became an attorney because I wanted to stand up for people who would not be able to obtain justice on their own. Often times people who hurt others try to avoid responsibility for the damage caused. I am willing and able to fight for your rights and hold these people accountable, even if the wrongdoers are supported by powerful corporations, insurance companies, or governments. When we decide to work together, my promise to you is that I will be your trusted advocate and counselor for your case.

I approach every new case with the belief that anyone who is unfairly harmed should have the ability to make the situation right. Growing up I learned that people who are unjustly hurt often need help from others who are willing to stand up for them. These advocates are necessary because those who wrongfully harm others often refuse to take responsibility. Moreover, those who hurt others are often protected by powerful, well-financed entities. This situation drew me to law school where I could become an attorney to help people who needed someone to stand up to protect their legal rights. 

I have worked as an attorney for more than a decade in both the courts and in private practice. I graduated with a B.A. from Gonzaga University and received my J.D. from the University of Oregon. During and after law school I worked for several judges in our courts including Judge Ronald Gould in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Gerry Alexander in the Washington Supreme Court, and Judge Gregory Foote in the Lane County (OR) Circuit Court. Prior to founding Barden & Barden with my wife Heather, I worked in private practice in Spokane, Tri-Cities, and Seattle. 

Living and working in the Inland Northwest is the perfect combination--it allows us to serve the wonderful people who live here and enjoy an incredible quality of life. Heather and I have three children who we love spending time with. You will often find us out and about in the Spokane area enjoying time with our family and friends.
