About Me

Jean M. Bouffard, Attorney at Law, provides real estate, contract and litigation legal services for businesses and individuals throughout the Puget Sound area. We offer aggressive, success oriented services at a competitive price. Our clients receive individualized attention, strategic planning and open lines of communication. Unlike the large law firms, where contract attorneys and litigators often work in completely separate departments, Jean Bouffard combines the skills of efficient contract preparation with the skills of successful contract litigation to offer clients the best of both legal services.

  • Mark David Albertson

    I have known Jean for over a dozen years, and have referred clients to her who are not in my area of expertise. She is a quality advocate and a lawyer of the highest caliber. I highly recommend Jean for litigation, business contract disputes and real estate matters.
