About Edwin S. Budge

Attorney Biography

Edwin Budge has been representing clients in civil rights and high-end injury and death cases for more than 20 years. Ed is a 1991 summa cum laude graduate of the University of Oregon. He graduated magna cum laude from Willamette University College of Law in 1994, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Willamette Law Review. After law school, Ed became a member of the Washington bar and began working as a litigation associate attorney with a prominent Seattle law firm where he gained experience litigating a variety of complex civil cases. Ed started his own law practice in 1997. The following year Ed asked law school classmate Erik Heipt to join him, and the two of them formed the law firm of Budge & Heipt, dedicating their practice to the representation of victims of police brutality and excessive force, as well as victims of jail abuse, neglect, or misconduct that causes serious injury or death.

Budge & Heipt, PLLC is a Seattle-based law firm focusing on wrongful death and serious injury due to excessive police force and jail/prison misconduct.

Our mission at Budge & Heipt is to hold police, law enforcement, and jails and prisons accountable for constitutional violations that result in wrongful death or serious bodily harm. We do this by thoroughly investigating each and every case we take, demanding answers, uncovering the truth, and pursuing fair compensation under the law for victims and their loved ones. In addition to our own experience and expertise, we work with the support and assistance of forensic investigators, medical examiners, experts in police work and corrections, life care planners, and numerous other experts from a variety of fields appropriate to the case. Our proven success is related to our hard work, passion for what we do, and our efforts behind the lines long before we reach the inside of a courtroom. We pride ourselves on our thorough case preparation and our willingness to go all the way to trial. We accept only a limited number of cases so that each case receives the proper attention, respect, and thorough preparation required to win.
