Because I gained more than fifteen years of valuable experience as an engineer, business owner , and real estate professional prior to beginning the practice of law, I tend to have a more cleaer understanding of the legal issues my clients ask me to assist them with. Having faced many of these issues myself in my life prior to becoming an attorney, I have a unique understanding of what my clients are facing which most other attorneys simply don’t have.

 

I am a partner in law firm which represents small businesses and individuals in transactional real estate matters, transactional business matters, business/real estate and civil litigation, contracts, technology law, intellectual property law, construction litigation, and personal finance matters such as bankruptcy and estate planning. I am licensed and practice in all courts in Washington State and California and we have offices conveniently located to serve clients in and aroud King County, Washington and Los Angeles & Orange, County California.

 

Our primary goal is to listen and understand the issues our clients are facing and to work diligently to achieve a favorable outcome for them. Partners and attorneys in our law firm have years of experience handling the wide variety of legal issues many of us are forced to confront from time to time. Together, we can find ways to attack the legal issues you may be facing and to find ways to avoid ever having to confront these legal issues in the first place.

Excellent experience
Joseph Creed was extremely responsive and accommodating to my needs. He was the second attorney I worked with and working with him was a breeze. Definitely recommend and I would work with him again any time. Thank you, Mr. Creed!

Professional and Straightforward
I would highly recommend Joseph Creed. He helped me through my divorce. He was very knowledgeable through the whole process. What I appreciated most about Jo was how responsive he was. He answered phone calls and emails in a very timely manner and kept me informed. I had many questions throughout the divorce and he was quick to give me clear answers. This has been a painful personal experience for me but Jo put my mind at ease with all of the legal aspects.

Real Estate Transactions
For the last 8 years he has represented us in all matters related to Real Estate. Buying, selling, preparing leases, in our commercial real estate investments. We are extremely pleased with his services and hope to continue this relationship for a long time. Aside from this he is a warm, friendly, human being.

A True Advocate
I can't speak highly enough about Joe. He took on our case after we consulted and began unsuccessfully with four other attorneys in the area. His work was stellar from beginning to end (we won the case by dismissal because the plaintiff finally realized they didn't stand a chance). He was extremely open to our input throughout, considerate of our needs, and gracious about accommodating our desire to participate in the defense process. I couldn't have asked for a better advocate, and I felt he was honest and consistent about acting in our best interest. He was even sensitive to our budget, and always gave us options and considered cost. We remain grateful to have won with him on our side!
