Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • James Preston Alder

    I enthusiastically endorse Dennis Brislawn as a top rate estate planning attorney, and especially as a firearms planning attorney. I am amazed at his knowledge and expertise and have been the beneficiary of assistance on multiple occasions. If I lived in Washington state and needed any form of estate planning, I don't believe there is anyone else I would ever work with.
