Ledger Law Firm Takes on Wrongful Death Suit in Tragic West Seattle “Suitcase” Murder Case

The matter of the wrongful deaths of Jessica Lewis aligns with firm’s deep expertise in this area of the law

The Ledger Law Firm, the high-powered wrongful death firm, announced today it is representing family of Jessica Lewis, a victim of a shocking double murder. Her body, along with that of Mr. Austin Wenner, were discovered in suitcases off a beach in West Seattle in June of this year. David Mann, Esq., managing attorney of The Ledger Law Firm's Seattle office, is taking the lead on the matter.

"While no amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, the law wisely provides a remedy for wrongful death," said Mr. Mann on behalf of The Firm. "In this case, we are seeking that remedy, though we understand that money reparations are only a part of the full justice being sought on behalf of Jessica's family."

The so-called “suitcase murder” case has received extensive media attention. Michael Dudley of Burien was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of Lewis and Wenner. His bail was set at $5 million. Dudley had been their landlord.

A wrongful death claim allows survivors or the estate of the deceased to recover monetary damages.
The claim to recover damages may include economic as well as noneconomic losses. Monetary damages could comprise death and burial costs and medical expenses as well as loss of the deceased’s income and loss of benefits. Nonmonetary damages can mean loss of care, companionship, care and assistance along with damages for pain and suffering. Loss of education and guidance of children can also be taken into consideration in this kind of litigation.
