Attorney Profile

Experience, tenacity and in-depth knowledge of case law and medicine are important characteristics for any attorney handling medical malpractice cases. The complexity, highly technical aspects and sheer duration of medical malpractice cases require a unique set of skills and a focused, long-term approach.

Attorney Steven R. Pruzan of Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan in Seattle, Washington, has shown that he is more than up to the task over a career that spans more than 35 years.

Born in Seattle, Mr. Pruzan graduated in 1971 from Claremont Men's College and earned his juris doctorate in 1974 from Gonzaga University School of Law, where he was an editor of the Gonzaga Law Review. He is admitted to practice in all Washington state courts, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington and the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

Perhaps one of the best indicators of attorney Pruzan's success is his reputation among his peers. He received an AV rating – the highest available – from the Martindale-Hubbell national legal network.* He also was elected into the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates by his peers, and he has been named numerous times to the list of Washington Super Lawyers, including in 2012.

Mr. Pruzan has often lectured at the University of Washington Medical School and the University of Washington Law School.
