Julie has fought for justice on behalf of countless victims of government negligence. She has held the Department of Corrections accountable for failing to supervise high risk offenders who victimized innocent people while on supervision.
Julie has advocated for victims of child sexual abuse while helping them seek justice from our State’s foster care system who failed to protect them or a School District that failed to protect its students from sexual abuse by a classmate, a teacher or coach.
If you believe you have been the victim of government negligence of any kind, contact Attorney Julie A. Kays today.
Julie A. Kays has taken on the State of Washington for failing to protect the most vulnerable in our society—our children in foster care. She has also taken on high profile cases against school districts who have failed to protect children from sexual predators.

Closer Look Into A Real Government Liability Case
In J.G. v. Department of Corrections, J.G. was violently assaulted by a repeat domestic violence offender. Her injuries were life altering. J.G. had talked to other lawyers who told her she did not have a case. Then, she found attorney Julie A. Kays.
Julie’s knowledge and experience as a former Senior prosecuting attorney, allowed her to immediately recognize that probation workers failed to appropriately supervise and monitor the offender who brutally attacked J.G.
The violence perpetrated against J.G. could and should have been prevented; Julie exposed numerous errors by probation workers by using her understanding of the probation system. DOC settled on the eve of trial for $1.1 million. J.G. is a courageous survivor of domestic violence and Julie was honored to fight for justice on her behalf.

Ask A Government Liability Attorney
We often hear of government agencies engaging in negligence. Some common examples are Child Protective Services failing to investigate a claim of child abuse, and an innocent child needlessly suffers; a school district failing to protect a student from a predator student or teacher; the Department of Corrections failing to supervise an offender who then senselessly injures someone.
These are just a few of many examples of government liability cases. Julie has worked with many clients in holding the government accountable and seeking justice for her injured clients.
