Experienced probate attorney serving Washington state. Call today
Linda is a licensed Certified Public Accountant and has worked in both private and public accounting, including two years in the tax department of a “Big Eight” public accounting firm. She obtained her undergraduate degree in accounting from Western Washington University and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Puget Sound School of Law (Seattle University).
Linda is a caring, conscientious and compassionate attorney, with the ideal combination of professional endeavors and personal attributes to work with clients regarding their estate planning and administration matters. During those often difficult times of dealing with end of life issues, or helping to administer the estate of a loved one, Linda’s gentle spirit, yet tenacious and detailed approach adds a personal element that helps to put her clients at ease. Linda’s focus is on attempting to keep peace in the family rather than a sole focus on the assets during an oft very emotionally challenging time. Linda views the documents she drafts as something that should be as flexible and detailed as possible, since life is often uncertain. The planning we do today is a legacy we leave for our future generations and should provide an efficient transition of estate assets.
Linda Lysne is a current member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), and has been a long time member of the Professional Advisory Board of the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, and Tacoma Community College Paralegal Advisory Committee, and of the Health Care Providers Council and South Sound Planned Giving Council and the Real Property, Probate, and Trust and Elder Law Sections. She has spoken to groups of lawyers, accountants, certified financial planners and various other professional and interest groups, as well as to the general public. Ms. Lysne’s practice emphasizes estate planning, including trusts, probate administration, Medicaid planning, elder law, business and taxation associated with these areas of law.
