Jay C. Kinney

Washington State Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation & Disability Attorney

For over 30 years, Seattle attorney Jay Kinney has represented plaintiffs in personal injury, workers' compensation, construction site and social security cases.

"I worked my way though college and law school as a carpenter, back when you could actually earn enough in the summer to pay for a year of college. I still use my tools on home and community projects. I know my way around a job site, and realize how hard it is to work after an injury."

Jay works closely with clients to maximize their benefits. He realizes that everyone from iron workers to Boeing assembly workers labor hard and want straight answers and results from their attorney, and he strives to provide timely, effective help.

Jay began his legal career with Goodwin, Grutz and Scott in 1984, after graduating from law school at the University of Texas. He grew up in Webster, New York. He began Kinney Law Group in 2016 after leaving Scott Kinney Fjelstad & Mack. He is an avid bowhunter, hiker, and builder. He enjoys spending time with his three children and family.
