Back to our people

Eleanor Lyon


I believe in hard work, zealous advocacy, and that there is no substitute for superior preparation. I joined Ashbaugh Beal as an attorney in 2021 after graduating from the University of Washington School of Law with experience in appellate practice, tort litigation, and tribal public defense. My practice focuses on complex civil litigation, including insurance recovery, insurer bad faith, and first-party claims.
