Csilla Muhl

My commitment to social justice and equality led me to earn a Juris Doctorate degree at Southern Illinois University School of Law. I graduated at the top of my class, was Vice President of the Law and Medicine Society and published in the Journal of Legal Medicine. Upon graduation, I worked at primarily two large corporate law firms in Tacoma, focusing on complex litigation: medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability and family law.

After 18 years as a trial attorney, I chose to take a break from adversarial family law practice and return to healthcare. I specifically targeted operational management in the nonprofit sector at the largest community health center in the state of Washington because of my commitment to serve a diverse patient population who are financially disadvantaged and vulnerable.

Presently, I continue to be passionate about social, health, gender and socio-economic equality. I am a dynamic problem solver and servant-leader. I fight for personal injury victims to achieve just outcomes.
