Katti explained everything very thoroughly, and was very patient with our questions. She gave us the detailed advice we were looking for, and provided us with not only a will, but powers of attorney and advance directives. We have a "blended" family- 5 adult children between us from previous marriages- and now we can relax and know that everything is in order for them. She has given us great peace of mind.

Katti made us comfortable with her immediately. We dealt with her on two different occasions, so we saw how she deals with the elderly (our mother) and then we hired her for our estate planning and final wills. She was very helpful, knowledgeable and very personable which put us at ease. I can and will recommend her with confidence in the future.

I was going through a difficult and stressful time shortly after I began working with Katti Esp on my will revision. Katti was supportive, informative, extremely knowledgeable, and sought information for me from other attorneys when I had questions outside her area of expertise. Katti also listens well with full attention and gives excellent feedback. She follows through quickly and well with what she has said she will do. I trust her expertise. The will and additional documents were well prepared and she sent me a copy before the actual signing and clearly answered my questions about wording or concerns.

My wife and I have known Katti for many years allowing us the opportunity to observe her professional work as she has represented many of Goodrich & Associates, LLC, clients.
She is very through and easy to communicate with.
As further testimony to her to her character and competence we had her update our personnel estate plan!

Ms. Esp has been my attorney for over 10 years. During that time she has handled my husband 's and my estate planning. When my husband passed away she handled all of the legal and tax matters associated with the estate in an extremely satisfying and efficient manner. She has continually advised and guided my estate matters for these past several years. Her knowledge of both federal and state laws are excellent and keeps me informed of any changes that may be needed or required regarding the estate. I highly recommend Katti Esp for estate planning and all the needed legal issues that go along with wills and estates etc.

Ms. Esp established complex estate plans for my wife and myself, and for my wife's parents. She did so promptly and competently. My father-in-law's death caused a need for a complex and difficult series of property transfers that Ms. Esp handled in a very efficient and cost-effective manner. Finally, she helped establish separate trusts for the several beneficiaries, to address income flowing from properties both in Washington and in Iowa. She understood all the tax implications and got us through this whole complicated process with a minimum of fuss and cost. I highly recommend her.

My husband and I went to Katti some years ago to update our wills, POA's ect. My husband was obviously failing, but was able to sign his own paperwork while still understanding what was happening. In 2012, it became time for him to go into a care facility. Katti guided me through the process of placing him, how to pay for it ect. and what to do at the time of his death in 2013. Because the paperwork was done and registered with the court the process was faster and easier. When I ran into anything I needed help with, she was there.........in spades! Would I recommend her? I have and will continue to do that as well as continuing to work with her myself.

Katti did an excellent job of discussing our end-of-life medical and financial preferences and needs, and then preparing our wills, durable powers of attorney, and other documents. We remain pleased with her work, have referred friends to her, and plan to see her again when we update our documents.

After 55 years my dear husband passed away and I needed legal advice with financial issues, our existing trust, will, etc. Our trust was written when we lived in CA. Fortunately Katty is licensed in CA as well as WA and she provided the perfect expert advice for me to update my will, etc. I had researched my options on the internet from Bellingham to Seattle and found Katty to be the best qualified. I have not been disappointed and would recommend her highly.
