About Me

I love my job because I get to work with families and individuals who are going through a difficult time and help them make it better.  My job is to take your legal problems on as my own and deal with them for you.  I have a policy of working with you to keep fees down, so if you can do work to help, I will encourage you to do that if fees are a concern, but my office can handle all aspects of the legal process if that is what you prefer.  I want to make your life easier.


When I'm not working, I am spending time with my family, which includes my husband, Casey, who is also a lawyer, our baby boy, Fletch, and our crazy German Shepherd, Maverick.  We like to be active and to travel and enjoy exploring the NW together.

  • Casey Matthew Arbenz

    Ms. Arbenz is a thoughtful and organized attorney who will always go the extra mile for her clients. She is as smart as she is personable, and when faced with a difficult legal issue Ms. Arbenz is a thorough and capable researcher. I refer all of my estate planning and business law clients to Ms. Arbenz, and I cannot recommend her enough.

  • Nathan Paul Roberts

    Annie Arbenz is great for estate and trust work, entity formation and governance, employment law, and mergers & acquisitions. Our firm had clients who needed a complicated trust drafted and approved by the Court for their disabled son, and we referred them to Annie. She came through with a great trust that was immediately accepted by the judge. She was great to work with, and the clients loved her. She is now our "go-to" person for these types of issues. I trust Annie and am even having her do my own estate planning. I highly recommend her and her work.
