A. Troy Hunter
Troy Hunter began his mediation career at the University of Washington School of Law, where he worked to resolve small claims litigation and community disputes through UW’s Mediation Clinic. He went on to win a Moot Court International Award of Excellence for skills in Mediation and Negotiation. As a civil litigator, he has successfully negotiated the mutually satisfactory resolution of hundreds of cases on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. He lends his success to being creative, listening closely to what is being said and, as an avid poker player, being able to read people to get a sense what is not being said. He received his mediator certification from the internationally recognized program at the Straus School for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University, School of Law, in Malibu, CA.
In his legal career, Troy had the honor of working for three years with the preeminent plaintiff's personal injury attorney, Tom Chambers, before Mr. Chambers joined the justices on the Washington State Supreme Court. He went on to work 14 years in insurance defense litigation as a partner in a Seattle firm before opening his own firm: Issaquah Law Group, where Troy continues to litigate disputes on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. In his years as a civil trial attorney he has successfully litigated or mediated a diverse array of complex cases, including personal injury/wrongful death, sexual abuse/ misconduct, school/municipality liability, construction/ contractor liability, product liability and catastrophic fire/explosion losses. Troy develops long-lasting relationships with his clients who value his patience and compassion, as well as his dedication and perseverance. He is licensed to practice in Washington and Alaska.
