Proudly Serving Washington & Idaho

Founded by Nik Armitage & JJ Thompson in Spokane, Washington.

Armitage & Thompson is a law firm founded by Nik Armitage and JJ Thompson. Our lawyers are licensed to practice law in Washington and Idaho, and our primary focus is representing people who have been harmed by others. We take on bullies, insurance companies, corporations, government, and other tortious actors on behalf of our clients. We work tirelessly to ensure that our clients obtain justice and the compensation they deserve.

Nik and JJ are experienced lawyers. They have litigated hundreds of cases of varying complexity, including cases involving severe injuries (such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and deaths). Nik and JJ get results. Several of their cases have ended in client recoveries of more than one million dollars.  On many occasions, they have successfully litigated claims against defendants that are among most vigorously defended, including insurance companies, large corporations, governmental entities, and major manufacturers.

In the Beginning

Nik Armitage and JJ Thompson were both raised in Eastern Washington – Nik grew up in Spokane Valley and JJ in the small town of Tekoa, just south of Spokane. Rivals before they ever met, Nik completed his undergraduate education at the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!) and JJ completed his undergraduate education at Washington State University (Go Cougs!).

Nik’s and JJ’s paths finally crossed when they attended Gonzaga University School of Law (Go Zags!). Their friendship grew as they both sought out trial and litigation classes. In their Trial Advocacy classes at Gonzaga, they enjoyed opportunities to not only compete against one another, but also to work together on the same team. They made great teammates and even talked about the idea of being law partners in the future.

Shortly after graduating from law school and passing the Washington Bar Exam, Nik and JJ found themselves working together at the same law firm. In short order, they earned partnerships in that firm, and after three years as partners, they knew they could accomplish much much more for their clients by making some changes. They started Armitage & Thompson, PLLC to effectuate those changes, and they have been providing exceptional service to their clients ever since.
