Lisa Atkinson has been my attorney for several years. She has helped me with my family's estate planning, probate for my step-father and my mother, creating wills and creating the contract, all legalities and set-up for my own SCorp business and then several years later did the same for my second store and partnership. She did all these things in a very timely fashion and kept me in the loop.
She is very friendly, approachable, informative and makes sure I understand all the specifics and answers any questions I may have.
I have great respect for Lisa and her vast knowledge and intellect and kindness. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone.

Lisa prepared wills and the associated documents for my husband and I, and later helped me set up an LLC for my business. She was very professional and responsive and got the work done quickly and for the quoted price. As a CPA, I have referred her to a number of my clients who needed to update their wills, incorporate their businesses, or needed help handling a parent's estate. I have heard only positive comments. I would absolutely recommend her again.

Ms. Atkinson is skilled at estate planning, especially in the areas of Indian wills, and for special needs. Ms. Atkinson has practiced for over ten years in this area, and I do not hesitate to send my clients on the West side of the State to her. (I am an attorney in Eastern Washington and Idaho). She is one of the few attorneys who is trained in doing Indian (Native American) wills, and is also highly skilled in the area of Indian law in general. I highly recommend her services.
