Attorney Holland McBurns has been a lifelong resident of Spokane, Washington. Growing up on the South Hill, she spent her early years committed to academics for the purpose and ultimate goal of making a difference in her community. This determination resulted in a BA, Cum Laude, in Women’s Issues from the University of Washington in 1996, and Juris Doctorate, Cum Laude, from Gonzaga School of Law in 2000.
Since 2000, Holland has had a successful practice with a background in Family law and a passion for Elder law. In 2004, Holland was awarded the VLP award for legal representation of indigent clients. Her practice focuses on family value based planning, guiding each family to make the best decisions for themselves. Each plan is designed for the unique needs of a particular family or client, including pre -planning and crisis planning for Medicaid and long- term care, special needs planning, estate planning, estate administration, and guardianships.
Holland is currently a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the Spokane County Bar Association, the National Association for Elder Law Attorneys, the Washington Association for Elder Law Attorneys, the Elder Counsel, and the National Business Institute.
In addition to her legal practice, Holland is a committed wife and mother of three wonderful children who love to bike, hike, run and garden. Understanding the struggles and needs of families, Holland is dedicated to providing her clients with the kind of support and guidance necessary for the best possible results.

I endorse this lawyer. Holland has extensive training and education in those areas of the law that affect seniors and any other individual that is updating/organizing their estate. I have solicited her assistance with complicated trusts and been impressed with her knowledge and contribution. I recommend Holland without reservation.
