James C Causey Jr. (Retired, Emeritus)

Jay Causey practiced for nearly 40 years in the field of workers’ compensation and disability law, including Washington State workers’ compensation claims, Social Security disability cases, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Act cases, Defense Base Act claims, and maritime injury cases. In the last several years of his practice, Jay was invited by a broad array of plaintiff and defense lawyers and insurance carriers to mediate Longshore, Defense Base Act and other complex workers’ compensation cases. He retired from active representation of clients at the end of 2016, and converted his practice to perform this mediation work through Causey Mediation until the end of 2021. Causey Mediation enjoyed a high rate of success in bringing cases to resolution in Washington and a number of Western states.
