Profile Introduction

Jesse is a trial lawyer who maintains a general litigation practice.  Jesse represents corporations and individuals in complex civil litigation matters, including commercial contract disputes, intellectual property litigation, breach of fiduciary duty, and design and construction defect matters. Jesse represents clients throughout the lifecycle of litigation, including initial investigation, mediation and arbitration, trial, and through the appellate process.

 

Prior to joining Summit Law Group, Jesse clerked for the Honorable Stephen J. Dwyer at the Washington State Court of Appeals in Seattle.

Representative Cases/Matters

Represented a foreign corporation at trial against a Washington manufacturer in a breach of warranty claim. The parties' contract disclaimed liability for consequential damages and limited the remedy for breach to repair or replacement of the faulty equipment. To recover, plaintiff needed to prove that the defendant breached the warranty, that the plaintiff notified the defendant of the breach within one month, and that the defendant's limited repair or replace remedy failed of its essential purpose, thus rendering ineffectual the contractual disclaimer against consequential damages. Jesse overcame a motion for summary judgment and a motion for judgment as a matter of law before receiving a jury verdict in favor of his clients for nearly a half-million dollars. 

 

Defended a homeowner's association and its individual board members against claims for discrimination, defamation, civil conspiracy, and violations of the Washington Homeowners' Association Act. Jesse prevailed on a motion for summary judgment and all claims were dismissed with prejudice.

 

Defended an organization that matches medical school graduates with hospitals for residencies and fellowships against claims for antitrust violations, civil conspiracy, and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Jesse successfully moved to dismiss all claims against his client.
