Business, Estate Planning, Land Use & Zoning, Probate
Combining my business ownership and management skills learned from operating our family sawmills and timber management companies for over 20 years with my legal practice in the areas of business, real estate, estate planning and probate, i have found myself on both sides of the table - as attorney and client. This practical experience assures my clients of a compassionate understanding of their point of view as well as skilfull, passionate and professional representation. My goal as an attorney is to take on my client's legal burden, allowing them to focus on their daily life, while I work to fairly and justly resolve or litigate their case to a successful conclusion.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Avvo's rating of this lawyer is incorrect. It is based on circumstances that were personal and not client related. He is a member in good standing with the Washington State Bar Association and is well respected by his peers. His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach. He represents his clients with the highest degree of regard and professionalism. If Avvo is to be a service to potential clients, it should adopt a higher degree of concern in the manner which it represents, or in this case misrepresents, the qualification of lawyers.

John Rizzardi Bankruptcy & Debt Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Thomas’s comment: “If you are concerned about my suspension, it was not as a result of anything to do with my practice of law. Please call John Rizzardi at the phone number in his endorsement of me to learn more. I can assure you of the highest level of professionalism, ethics and passionate representation.”
