Seattle Class Action Law Firm

Bendich, Stobaugh and Strong, P.C. is a is a Seattle law firm that handles employment and consumer class actions. The law firm was founded by Judith E. Bendich, David F. Stobaugh, and Stephen K. Strong in 1975.

We have brought successful class action lawsuits on behalf of thousands of employees. The lawsuits obtained pay and benefits for City of Seattle, King County employees, health and retirement benefits for community college faculty, increased pay for faculty at the University of Washington, and relief for Microsoft employees misclassified as "temporary" employees. Articles on these cases can be found here.

In the last twenty years the law firm obtained over $400 million for employees' health insurance, pensions and pay. The law firm has also obtained regular benefited jobs for thousands of previously non-benefited employees, and we have made employers' practices change so that employees will have health insurance and pensions in the future.
