Justice for Specialist Ronald E. Dreier U.S. Army


Our family wanted justice for my brother twenty two years old, Specialist Ronald E. Dreier of the U.S. Army. He was killed in an off duty accident at Solo Point Fort Lewis May 2, 1990. The U.S. District Court dismissed our suite claimed it was barred by the Feres Doctrine. Whoever, Mr. Carlson with his expertise, dedication and countless efforts for my brother case was relentless. Mr. Carlson won a reversal on appeal where he persuaded the Appellate Court to apply “activities-Based” analysis to Feres cases now broadening access to civil justice for service members throughout the United States Armed Forces. Mr. Carlson was instrumental in creating new law under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Wrongful Death Dreier v. United States, 95 F.3d 1435 (9th Cir. 1996) commonly cited as “Controlling Authority.”  Due to Mr. Carlson’s continued dedication for justice towards my brother and our family, we have been able to help other military families to prevail with the legacy of my brother. Mr. Carlson’s recognized with posturing and tenacious attitude he could make change, in that commitment he was able to seize the opportunity to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court! He was committed to our case for over six years, that’s dedication!!!

Our family is forever grateful!

Excellent Attorney


When I was involved in a serious car accident, I thought the situation would take care of itself. Unfortunately, some people are dishonest and I had to seek legal counsel. During my first interview with Bill Carlson, I was glad he was very upfront with what to expect with the legal process and the compensation I could potentially receive.


He was amazing at answering all my questions and concerns in a timely fashion. Bill was my attorney for about a year and I can say without a doubt that he is in the legal field as a practitioner and not as a businessman.


He truly cares about his clients and has a passion for what he does. If you are seeking a personal injury attorney, I would highly recommend William J. Carlson.

Head-on Collision Accident


I felt it was a team effort between my attorney and me. It was obvious that Mr. Carlson was working hard to get me a respectable settlement. My settlement turned out to be better than we expected. All parties involved were happy with the settlement. I would recommend this attorney to others. Mr. Carlson was also fun to work with though I think more communication would have been better, me not knowing anything about legal matters and law.

Mr. Carlson was very helpful in addressing a legal issue and protecting my interests. He negotiated a settlement to cover medical bills resulting from a car accident where the other driver was at fault.




Thankyou so much


Finding an attorney that you trust is a difficult thing to do these days. My husband and I were lucky enough to be referred to Bill Carlson. Bill and his staff kept us informed through phone calls and mail every time our case was worked on. They were kind, professional and most importantly, we felt that Bill really fought for us. We always felt like Bill was in our corner, not just there to make a buck. We highly recommend Bill Carlson and his firm and will use them again if we are ever in need of an attorney.Thanks Bill!

Ethical Perseverance


Mr. Carlson was persistent during an extended process of fighting a large insurance company. He advised fair and ethical practices and we stood strong with our offer. In the end, we settled in mediation and got more than expected. I was happy with the outcome and thankful he stood by my side. Thank you
