Brittany joined Smith Freed Eberhard in 2019 as an associate attorney. She previously worked as an associate attorney at Tyson and Mendes, LLP, an insurance defense firm in Seattle, WA. She has experience litigating cases from initial litigation planning, discovery and dispositive motions to arbitration and trial.
Brittany has published articles involving Washington’s arbitration limit increase, Washington’s position on Service of Process issues, property law issues, and an informative piece on women’s increased discrimination protections through changes in employment law. In addition, she served as an article editor where she revised numerous articles pertaining to insurance defense, employment law, automated vehicle and pending safety regulations, cannabis law, and women’s initiatives in the workplace.
Brittany represented a couple being sued for fraud and negligent misrepresentation for the sale of their property to the plaintiffs. The plaintiffs claimed more than $200,000 in damages. Defendants moved for summary judgment against the plaintiffs, and Defendants won a dismissal upon summary judgment motion following my oral argument. Thereafter, because the contract had a clause for attorney’s fees, Brittany argued a subsequent motion for attorney’s fees. Defendants also won the motion for attorney’s fees. This was the first time her current firm had won a motion for attorney’s fees during her practice tenure.
