Jonathan Sprouffske was recommended to me by a co-worker who I trust. I hired him to help with finalizing an estate that had no will. From the time we had our first conversation to the final meeting after everything was finished - Jonathan and his team walked next to me, helping me make decision after decision. It was a difficult situation - but Mr. Sprouffske was thoughtful, respectful and kind. I grew to trust him and will turn to him again, when a situation arises. In every turn, his guidance and recommendations were right on target. I highly recommend him.
Jonathan is knowledgeable, well-organized, bright, and knows the law. Further, if he isn't the best person to help with a particular problem, who knows who IS and is makes confident referrals. He helped my husband and me with a bankruptcy and the entire process was smooth from start to finish. He was prompt, courteous, and on time and made us feel comfortable through what can be a very uncomfortable matter. Previously, when my spouse was very ill and in the hospital, Jonathan came to the hospital with another attorney and an experienced paralegal to have my spouse sign some important estate documents. That personal touch is what sets him apart from other attorneys.
I have worked with Jonathan on real estate and business issues. Jonathan's skills as a listener and advocate are what set him apart from most attorneys in these specialties. Not only does he listen well, but he asks great questions which demonstrated that he was truly interested in my needs. His support staff is terrific. I can tell it's because they enjoy working with Jonathan. Jonathan brings a warmth, sincerity, and dare I say...fun...to the work. Many times legal problems are no fun, but Jonathan helps one feel comfortable. When I left one of my issues in his hands, I immediately knew it would be taken care of and done right. It was. And much sooner than I anticipated. Thank you Jonathan!!
Mr. Sprouffske guided me through the advantages and disadvantages of establishing an LLC within Washington State. After he obtained an understanding of my business objectives, Mr. Sprouffske performed the activites required to establish the business within state and federal regulations. He provided advice regarding transitioning my clients from my existing business to the newly formed LLC, and provided his perspective regarding notification of existing business partners.
After some suspicions that a family trust was drafted improperly by another attorney, I took the matter to Jonathan for his counsel. After a thorough review, he pointed out the flaws and advised of an appropriate action plan in response, all in very clear, understandable terms. He also went took the extra step to review the will of the trust beneficiary to be certain that assets would transfer according to our wishes. Jonathan is a true professional who always has his clients' best interests at heart. I highly recommend his services for estate planning needs.
I am a member of a non profit organization. We provided services to another organization, and it later refused to pay us $4,000 of the total amount it owed us. The loss of this income was devastating to our organization. We obtained a judgment in small claims court against the organization, and it still refused to pay us. Jonathan helped us garnish the debtor organization's bank account, and he was very successful. Jonathan was knowledgeable, efficient, personable, professional, and successful. We enjoyed working with him and unconditionally recommend him to others.
Jonathan works hard for his clients. I really appreciated that I could always trust him to do the right thing for my case and to be there when I need to ask questions.
Jonathan is an amazing lawyer. I have used him to incorporate both of my businesses, to assist with the acquisition of a business, to assist in the sale of a business, and as my personal attorney. He is incredibly trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
