About Me

Lynn St. Louis is an elder law attorney, providing legal counsel on elder law, estate planning, and long-term care matters.  Lynn's practice offers life care planning services to assist clients and their loved ones through the myriad of legal and social issues in order to find, keep, and pay for quality long-term care. Through implementation of Medicaid Asset Preservation Strategies, families can preserve substantial assets and obtain Medicaid long-term care benefits. 


 


As an elder law attorney, Lynn seeks to honor and protect seniors' autonomy and wishes through life planning documents such as Durable Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives (Living Wills). Through Wills and other estate planning services, Lynn provides clients with peace of mind, knowing that their wishes will be carried out and their estates will not be unnecessarily depleted.

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Lynn about a decade ago attending national continuing legal education programs. I've enjoyed working with her to understand how other state's interpretations of federal laws can help our clients in Washington state.
