Providing Trusted Legal Guidance

For Over 50 Years

Our Firm

Layman Law Firm, a Washington and North Idaho law firm, was founded by John G. Layman, who has been practicing law for more than 50 years and was rated as one of the best trial lawyers in America. In addition to practicing law, he was President of Farmers and Merchants Bank in Spokane, Washington for 30 years.

Because of John G. Layman’s commitment to litigation and banking, we have two primary areas of practice: litigation, representing victims of serious personal injuries and representing clients in complex business-oriented litigation- and transactional work, assisting clients with business, banking, and commercial matters. Our clients range from individuals to banks and real estate development companies.

The attorneys of Layman Law Firm who are involved with each area are eminently qualified and strive to maintain a high level of competency. Among our attorneys are two of Washington’s “Super Lawyers”, the holder of a specialty designation in aquatic injuries, a Chartered Financial Analyst (“CFA”), two MBAs, and a former bankruptcy court clerk. Several also had impressive business careers before practicing law.

The firm maintains Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating, an “AV” rating.
