About me

Established in 1998, Callahan & Associates, Chtd. has earned a solid
reputation for providing quality estate planning and elder law services
at reasonable rates. Our unique "Unlimited Support",
which we provide to your estate planning clients, is just one of many
ways our commitment to client service and satisfaction distinguishes us
from our peers.

We offer complete estate planning services in
Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, including cases involving Living
Trusts, Wills, Probate, Charitable Planning, and Elder Guardianships. A
large portion of our new clients come from existing client referrals and
referrals from other professionals. We believe that this is one of the
best measures of client satisfaction.
