Joseph Pendergast: One of the 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys in Washington

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on September 5, 2017

As the 2017 Major League Baseball season heads into its final months, the Mariners definitely aren’t a shoo-in to make the American League playoffs. But, there still is a chance for Seattle’s boys of summer to make one of the league’s two wildcard berths. No, it hasn’t been a stellar season for the M’s, but some individual players had good seasons. Both second baseman Robinson Cano and right fielder Nelson Cruz suited up to represent the Emerald City in the MLB 2017 All-Star Game.

While any athlete in a team sport prefers that his team succeed, being named one of that sport’s elite players is also quite an honor. That’s why Seattle personal injury firm Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S., is proud to announce that partner Joseph E. Pendergast III has been named one of the 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for Client Satisfaction in Washington State for the fourth time by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys (AIOPIA). You can learn more about this prestigious honor and the AIOPIA here. Read the rest »

Just How Tough Is It to Become an NADC Attorney? (And Why Should I Want One?)

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on July 31, 2017

Let’s answer that question with another question. Would you rather have a heart surgeon who has received the American Surgical Association’s Medallion of Achievement … or one who hasn’t?

We agree.

A lawyer’s awards are living proof that he’s doing a good job for his clients and community. The fact that Joseph Pendergast III of Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S., was chosen for the National Association of Distinguished Counsel’s 2017 list of Nation’s Top Attorneys is an honor, and we want to share exactly why.
