John Cadagan


John Cadagan represents policyholders in insurance recovery disputes, as well as both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial and personal injury litigation. His practice is particularly focused on appellate litigation, where he regularly counsels clients and other lawyers through the appellate process.


Before joining GTTC, John clerked for the Honorable Linda C.J. Lee at the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division II. His years at the court provided unique insight into the appellate court system and shape his approach to litigating in both trial and appellate courts.

I enjoy being outdoors, and I try to take every opportunity to be outside fishing, horseback riding, snow skiing, or spending time at the lake with my wife.  My wife and I also enjoy going to Husky football games and following our hometown Zags from afar.
