About Bob

Seattle bicycle lawyer Bob Anderton.

Bob Anderton


"Bob and his team were great in helping make me as whole as I could be again. I was hit commuting to work by a distracted driver who was on their phone. After multiple surgeries and countless hours of PT, Bob and the team did a great job managing all the insurance claims and red tape. [...]

Bob Anderton heads Washington Bike Law. Bob is a daily bike commuter with three decades of experience in successfully representing injured bicyclists. Bob didn't set out to be a bike lawyer. Perhaps because the idea of a "bike lawyer" didn't exist as bicyclists started becoming the majority of Bob's clients. Today, bike law represents more than 90% of Bob's work.

Bob's bike law experience also helps him represent people who have been injured while walking or when rolling on something other than a "typical" bicycle, including wheelchairs, ebikes, recumbent bikes, cargo bikes, family bikes, folding bikes, skateboards, scooters, mopeds, and motorcycles.

Bob is Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell as AV® Preeminent™ 5 out of 5 . This is the highest possible rating for Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilities, Judgment, Communication Ability, and Legal Experience. Bob is a Member of National Trial Lawyers' Top 100 Trial LawyersAVVO rates Bob as a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 for experience, industry recognition and professional conduct.

Bob is uniquely qualified to help injured bicyclists. This is not just because he is a bike person himself, but because he has already represented bicyclists in almost every factual scenario imaginable. He's helped countless people who've been doored, T-boned, rear-ended, right-hooked, left-hooked or even thrown from their bikes by roads not fit for ordinary travel. Bob has the experience to know from the outset what arguments are likely to be made and how to best advocate for his bike clients.
