Bloom Law PLLC Welcomes Associate Jay Corker Free to the Firm
May 13, 2021, Seattle, Washington.
Bloom Law PLLC is pleased to welcome Jay Corker Free as an associate attorney. Jay is committed to fighting for workplace equality and fairness. He understands people often define themselves by their careers and that having that stolen from them by an employer’s misconduct is traumatizing. That is why he zealously advocates for those wrongfully terminated due to workplace discrimination or retaliation.
“Our focus on bringing strong employment cases to trial means we work a little differently,” said Beth Bloom, Managing Partner. “Jay Free’s background as a former defense attorney, with strong investigation skills and a passion for trial advocacy, makes him the perfect addition to our growing firm.”
Prior to joining Bloom Law, Jay held associate positions at Calfo Eakes LLP and Montgomery, Purdue, Blankinship, & Austin PLLC where he represented employers. He now uses this background to anticipate his adversary’s position.
Jay also meticulously investigates his cases because he knows lawsuits are won on the facts. Before law school, he investigated criminal cases for three years at the King County Public Defender’s Office. In his prior work at other law firms, Jay conducted internal employment investigations for his corporate clients. He uses his investigatory background to gain extensive knowledge of the case history to build compelling stories and legal arguments that strengthen an employee’s case and prepare it for trial.
“One of the best ways to ensure justice and equal opportunity is to shine a light on employer misconduct in public trials,” said Jay Free. “Few attorneys have the record or reputation of Beth Bloom for standout success at trial, and I’m honored to join her mission of ensuring strong cases get to trial.”
Jay graduated second in his class at the University of Washington School of Law with high honors. Super Lawyers Thomson Reuters has recognized Jay as a “Rising Star” in Washington State in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Jay also serves on the Board of Directors for Elizabeth Gregory Home, a center for women experiencing homelessness.
