I am a lifelong resident of the South sound region. Growing up in the small fishing town of Westport Washington, I understand the needs of my clients.
With nearly three decades of experience and over 6,000 cases filed, I have the skills and knowledge to get results for my clients. For convenience I have offices in both Tacoma and Olympia. Many of my clients do not realize the potential relief bankruptcy may provide for either themselves or their business until they consult with me.
I also routinely provide consultation and advice for attorneys throughout Western Washington on bankruptcy issues and the impact of bankruptcy on other areas of law.
Licensed since 1986

I endorse this lawyer. Many persons attempt to contact a bankruptcy attorney without asking how long have they practiced, do they practice both chapter 7 and 13, how many cases have they filed, are you good.. Mr. Dart does practice all chapters, provides great advice and I have referred clients to him over the years when they want local attorney or because of conflict of interest, etc. I would use him myself if needed! You will be well advised and informed and represented if you employ Mr. Dart!
