    • I recommend James Spencer.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my Wills / Living Wills matter.

    My wife and I were lucky enough to be referred to James Spencer for our legal needs (will, power of attorney, health directive, etc.). He was very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable about LGBT issues. He is also affordable, and INCREDIBLY patient with us, given that we would often delay in getting him information. Yet he always responded immediately. We felt very taken care of, and have complete trust in him. I fully recommend him!

    • I recommend James Spencer.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    James provided me with excellent services and advice on two different occasions. Most recently to help me and my husband with estate planning services and documents. Several years ago, James came to my aid when I needed to deal with my brother's estate when no will could be found. On both occasions he was a great listener, addressed our specific needs and concerns, and was able to move things forward for us very quickly. James is very personable, while being very professional. We will seek him out again if we need legal services.

    James is highly capable and knowledgeable. My husband and I had a pleasant experience with estate planning because James is so personable and trustworthy.

    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    James helped my Partner and I through the rather uncomfortable task of developing our wills, health care directive, and a domestic partnership agreement prior to the State of Washington's passing of the Domestic Partnership laws. He made this process very easy and gave us a lot of options and direction when we needed them. We will continue to use him to help update our future planning.

    My wife and I were dreading the process of drafting a pre-nup and estate plan. However, James helped us through it without a scratch! His knowledge and guidance was beyond our expectations. We actually believe this experience made us a much stronger couple. Thanks James!
