Areas of Practice


Guardianship

We can help request appointment of a guardian to protect a disabled adult, and we can also discuss alternatives to guardianship.  We represent both professional and lay guardians. 


vulnerable adult cases

We help vulnerable persons and those who care about them apply for protection under Washington's Vulnerable Adult Protection Statute.


TRUST ADMINISTRATION

We advise trustees and other fiduciaries on their duties and can petition the court to approve accountings and to terminate or modify trusts.


ESTATE PLANNING

Every adult should complete certain legal documents to protect themselves and their families.  We prepare wills and revocable living trusts, community property agreements, powers of attorney, and health care directives. 


probate

Probate is a court case in which a deceased person's creditors are paid and their assets transferred to their heirs and beneficiaries.  We can help families with probate and discuss probate alternatives. 


LITIGATION

Our staff has extensive litigation experience and can represent clients in contested guardianship, trust and probate matters.  We make every effort to help clients reach mutually agreeable outcomes, but if the case calls for it, we are ready to proceed to trial.
