Winterbauer & Diamond PLLC

About Our Firm

Winterbauer & Diamond PLLC is a premier Seattle employment and labor law firm, serving clients throughout Washington and the Pacific Northwest. We represent public and private employers, from sole proprietorships and start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations, across a broad range of industries. We approach every workplace issue as an opportunity to effectuate positive change and further our clients’ desired culture and other business interests. We offer timely, practical, and cost-effective advice and representation on the spectrum of legal issues in the workplace, including:

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Administrative Enforcement
  • Employment Litigation
  • Labor Relations
  • Public Employment
  • Training and Investigations
  • Proprietary Information
  • Executive Mobility

Our small-firm, personal approach translates to efficient, responsive representation with a high level of client satisfaction. Calls are returned promptly, questions are encouraged, and answers are timely and clear. Our lawyers are deadline-driven and detail-oriented. At the same time, our focused practice and our commitment to technology investment enables us to compete on an equal footing with the largest firms.  Additionally, we serve as the Washington state representative to the Worklaw® Network, a nationwide consortium of law firms focused on management-side employment and labor law, which allows us to offer our regional clients access to legal resources and expertise in 27 states and Canada. Last, but not least, we are acutely conscious of our clients' need for cost-efficient legal services. To that end, we staff matters leanly, provide fee estimates and budgets, regularly communicate with clients regarding the cost of different strategies, and offer fixed and blended fee services, in addition to traditional hourly billing.

Counselors and Litigators/Trial Lawyers

We strongly believe in the benefits of a joint counseling and litigation/trial practice. Not every legal matter involves a dispute, and not every legal dispute requires litigation. We provide advice and counsel to help employers develop policies and practices that promote positive labor relations and ensure regulatory compliance. Rather than merely recite the letter of the law, we present a range of practical solutions accompanied by concrete recommendations regarding the most appropriate options. When a dispute does arise that requires formal legal intervention, our lawyers have the skill and experience to effectively advocate on your behalf. We counsel employers on issues which we have experience litigating, and we litigate and try matters on which we regularly counsel clients. Our Seattle firm's experience as both counselors and litigators/trial lawyers enriches our ability to provide advice and representation with greater understanding of, and sensitivity to, the big picture. To a large degree, our legal advice and counsel have been forged through the heat of trial. Theory may be different than practice. We educate and counsel our clients not only on what their legal rights are, but also on whether, when and how they can most effectively exercise them.
