Biography

I started working on personal injury cases just before my last year of law school. I was fortunate to work as an intern for a solo-practitioner, and learned all that I could in my time there, assisting with personal injury cases from intake to completion. This crash course in personal injury was unlike any class in law school. I learned how to work with and advocate for my clients. I’m thankful for the guidance and collegiality I received early on in my career and will pay it forward.

After graduating from Gonzaga School of Law in 1997, I continued handling personal injury matters, almost exclusively, working for two busy law firms over the next 20 years, gaining valuable litigation experience.

I opened my own firm, Radtke Law Firm, in October 2017. My focus and passion remain on plaintiff personal injury law, which allows me to continue to help those that have been wrongly injured by the negligence of others.

If you are hurt because of another's failure to follow a duty, an established rule, or exercise reasonable care you can pursue a personal injury claim to hold them accountable. Holding those negligent accountable leads to greater safety for us all. If you’ve been hurt, contact me for a free consultation.
