I'm a partner and attorney with the Seattle law firm of Spencer Anderson & Buhr, PLLC. See more about us at our website: www.spenceranderson.com. My practice with the firm is dedicated 100% to consumer bankruptcy matters. I'm also a family guy who's happily lived in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle with for the last 10 years.
I spent my first several years out of college as an engineer working for the Boeing Company at Everett and Renton sites. But I soon decided to change careers and enrolled in the evening law program at Seattle University School of Law, while still working at Boeing. While in law school I had the opportunity to work in the Ronald E. Peterson Bankruptcy Clinic, which provided me experience in bankruptcy law. My experience working with in law clinic with actual clients was a key factor in my decision to practice bankruptcy law full-time and assist those facing financial hardship.
After graduating from law school, I volunteered for the King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project where I assisted tenants facing eviction proceedings. While this was a rewarding pro bono experience, I was more interested in bankruptcy and debt relief law. I signed up to be a volunteer attorney for the King County Bar Association’s Seattle Debt Clinic where my primary focus is helping low-income debtors who cannot otherwise afford an attorney file for bankruptcy protection. I continue to use my legal skills in practice and through volunteer work at the Debt Clinic to helping people obtain a financial fresh start in life.
