I am a Seattle-area based attorney but serve clients in numerous states and internationally.
My legal practice emphasizes wealth preservation and transfer. I provide an integrated approach to estate, business, personal and financial planning utilizing sophisticated tax, business, asset protection and estate planning techniques designed to preserve your wealth now and in the future. In addition to traditional estate and estate tax planning strategies, I also employ strategies for retirement account benefits that ensure inherited retirement accounts achieve the highest degree of tax preference and asset protection available.
My professional goal is to maintain the highest degree of skill, knowledge and experience in several related areas in order to custom tailor plan and strategies that addresses your personal situation, achieves your personal goals and protects the success that you have achieved.
In addition to wealth preservation, I also work in what might be regarded as the other end of the wealth spectrum. My knowledge and experience in bankruptcy is in fact a valuable asset protection resource. The ultimate test of any asset protection plan is how well that plan holds up in the event of bankruptcy. Bankruptcy judges and trustees are known to give particular scrutiny to asset protection plans. Having a sound background in bankruptcy gives my clients an edge that is often absent from other plans.
In addition to my legal practice, I also enjoy putting my business and accounting background and interests to work. I find great professional pleasure in consulting with business owners, managers and boards on both legal and non-legal aspects of their business operations. I have served on various boards and board committees of both profit and non-profit entities and welcome the opportunity to discuss service opportunities on a board of directors.
