Hello and thank you for reading this page. If you are having a hard time paying your rent, or if you are having a family law crisis, please be sure to visit http://www.washingtonlawhelp.org which may be able to steer you to useful information which could answer your questions.


If you are having a dispute with your landlord or your tenant, or if you thought you were buying your home but now you are receiving notices from your lender I'd like to talk with you, and see if there is any way I can help you.


Thanks again for looking at my Avvo page. Elizabeth Powell
