About Neal Bonrud

Meet Neal Bonrud

I am an attorney focused on insurance coverage and probate as well as a West Point graduate and US
Army Veteran.

I was born in Auburn and grew up in Covington, Washington. Prior to graduating from Kent-Meridian High School, I was nominated to attend West Point by Senator Warren Magnuson and Congressman Don Bonker. I graduated from West Point in 1983 and proudly served for over 5 years as an officer in the US Army, including a tour at Fort Lewis (now Joint Base Lewis-McChord). After leaving the Army as a Captain, I attended law school at Arizona State University and then returned to Seattle to practice law starting in 1991.

My legal career has been primarily in civil litigation. I started in a boutique construction law firm and then later started my own law firm focused on insurance coverage and bad faith litigation, in addition to now covering probate and estate litigate.

My Value to You

My goal as an attorney is to take care of my clients during stressful times. That includes offering free 30-minute consultations for probate and insurance matters.

What Neal's Clients Say

"Great job!"
"I was a client of this lawyer and he did a really good job. He charged me exactly what he said he would. No hidden charges or gimmicks. He was knowledgeable and friendly too. It wasn't a problem to talk to him about my legal and personal issues at all. He always returned my calls quickly. I would really recommend this guy to anyone."

"Thank you Mr. Bonrud"
"From the moment I walked into Mr. Bonrud's office and saw that he graduated from West Point, I knew that he would have the characteristics that I wanted in an attorney. Trustworthy, competent, aggressive, honest, good character. Mr. Bonrud is all those. After explaining my legal situation and he made an assessment, I was not thrilled with his answer, but I followed his advice and that advice turned out to be great. He was totally on point with his recommendation and he got me the results that I wanted. Thank you Mr. Bonrud."

"Knows More About Insurance Than Anyone"
"My insurance company denied a claim on water damage to my building. I called Neal and he did a great job representing my business against them. He knows more about insurance than anyone I know. The insurance company not only paid my claim but they paid all of the attorney fees and then some. I highly recommend him to anyone with an insurance problem."

"Neal, you fought hard, and you also did so with integrity. I greatly admire you for that. I really appreciate how you defended the personal representative personally, when she was being attacked."
