Review Linda Atkins

About Me

My practice focuses on real estate transactions, real property development, and natural resources law. I represent tenants and landlords in leasing transactions, work with real estate buyers and sellers, and represent applicants in land use hearings, including SEPA and shoreline appeals. My practice also involves helping clients buy and sell water rights, and to assess, manage, transfer and acquire water rights. I really enjoy the dynamics of a transaction and being proactive in helping clients avoid problems.
