    21 years

I became a lawyer to help people. My legal services are heart centered, direct & honest, flat rate and about the relationship not the billable hour or the transaction. Any individual or family I work with is for life - as your Trusted Advisor, ensuring that the custom plan we create for you works when you need it most. 

I work with families, individuals and small business owners to ensure that they have a plan in place for death and incapacity. I make sure that the custom plan we create will work for you when you need it most, and keeps your loved ones left behind out of conflict and court so they have space to grieve instead of having to deal with a beaurocratic mess. 

Having a trust or a will is not just for the rich, it is not something you should wait until you are old to do.  Every single adult individual or family with minor children, no matter how modest their means or age, needs a plan in place to ensure that if they die things are taken care of for the loved ones they leave behind. If you think planning is too hard, too expensive or just too confusing, I encourage you to book a call with me and we can discuss your options. The consultation is complimentary, the planning will be priceless. 

To get started reach out and book a Discovery Call with me today.  We will review the process with you. There is no obligation to plan but the complimenatary planning session will help you get more organized financially and asset wise than ever before.  And you will know at the end of our Life & Legacy planning session what the default plan is for you or your family so you can choose to plan with all the information you need.  

If you think time or finances will be an obstacle to planning, think again - my flat rate services make estate planning affordable and I offer monthly payment plans and sliding fees for those who may not otherwise be able to afford my services. 

In the Landlord Tenant realm I am first and foremost a Tenant Advocate. Most problems that face tenants are in grey areas where clear, compassionate and honest communication along with creative problem solving is necessary to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. I will honestly advise you on what your options are under Washington State and/or Seattle housing law and be direct about how to exercise your remedies in the particular situation. I am going to look for and advise on how to reach win-win, not about how to create a litigious situation. I do not do litigation, however I will work very hard to find a negotiated solution on your behalf or if litigation or some type of court action is needed you will be referred to those who can help you. I also represent small landlords to assist them in setting up the appropriate structures to work within the rules and regulations of Washington and Seattle landlord tenant law, as well as advising them on the right thing to do when facing challenging situations with tenants. 

Legal services should be accessible to the average person facing challenges or wanting to protect their housing, grow their business, or gain income from the fruits of their labor. That is why I offer flat rate services on a sliding fee scale to individuals and small businesses. I have 16 years of volunteering with the Housing Justice Project in Seattle and this decade+ of experience has put me on the front lines of Landlord/Tenant disputes and given me a lot of wisdom for resolving situations for tenants and advising landlords on their responsibilities in private practice. I am also a renter in the City of Seattle, and advise from my own personal experience. I believe there is always a solution to a dispute that does not involve litigation or costly long term representation.

No question is a bad question and it my responsibility to my client to look at the entire situation and give advise from both a legal and compassionate human perspective. I have done a good job if my client is educated and empowered as a result of our interaction. 

I offer comprehesive business creation, maintenance and strategic advisor services. Business law is not just about forming the right entity, checking a box and moving on - but looking at the holistic picture of the business, its goals, and using my outlook as an attorney and consultant to be a trusted advisor, to prevent troubles before they are encountered. I ensure all of my clients have essential foundations of their business in place for legal, insurance, finance and taxes. 

I offer estate planning for individuals, families with minor children, working class families, and beyond. Planning for after you are gone is some of the most important planning you can do for your loved ones. It is never too early to plan for your death, but it can always be too late. All my planning services are  flat rate and scale from economical to an investment in protecting your families wealth. 

When I am not advising clients I teach project management for the University of Washington, write a travel/food blog, poetry and memoir, I photograph the world around me, practice Buddhism, and I am a spiritual Guide in the Lineage of King Salomon, meditation facilitator, and I coach individuals on many aspects of leading a joyful empowered life using metaphysical and secular tools to cultivate abundance. I try to smile and have gratitude for this life every day.  I look forward to talking to you.

Angel M Latterell's Review
Angel was able to effectively communicate and guide the process of establishing our Trust and Will. We are pleased with her professional expertise.

Terrific help, and fast!
At the start of the COVID 19 pandemic my 87 year old mother was diagnosed dementia and cancer with Dr.'s order to avoid human contact. I soon discovered that her will and power of attorney documents were nearly 20 years out of date, with the wrong person left in charge of both hers and my estate and medical guardianships. We needed to update our documents quickly but with little contact since my mother's health was fading rapidly. In just a few days Angel Latterell had created new documents for us both, which were concise, without a wasted word and precisely what we needed at a very reasonable price. Thank you Angel, we both agree that our communication with you and the resulting documents could not have been a greater success.

Mellow
Angel kept me calm in a very infuriating situation, namely a tenant who used the eviction moratorium to prevent me from moving into my own home! She gave me good advice, responded quickly, and helped me refrain from doing anything rash. I definitely recommend her services.

Amazing, Knowledgeable and Invaluable Advice
Angel was invaluable in contacting our former landlord who lived out of state and refused to refund our security deposit without cause. It was an extremely stressful time trying to contact him on our own without any success. Luckily we hired Angel and she was able to write a informative letter stating facts, codes and consequences that educated him on tenant/landlord contracts. Even when he still refused, Angel was persistent and was able to obtain our deposit from him. She was very patient explaining her course of action with us every step of the way. She provided us with invaluable advise and perspective with her legal expertise and compassionate outlook. She has become not only our family attorney but our trusted friend.

Great Tenant Advocate
We were renters of a house in which the washing machine had flooded due to mechanical failure and damaged much of our property and the landlord's sub-floor insulation. His insurance covered his property, while our renter's insurance covered our property. However, neither wanted to be stuck with the whole bill and the landlord's insurance put in a collections directly to us after our insurance refused to pay. We put out an inquiry for an attorney explaining our situation. Angel answered our inquiry and spoke directly on the phone with us offering a consultation to explain how she could best help us in our predicament. After the consult, we agreed to hire. She offered a flat rate for a certain amount of hours, which we found very reasonable compared to the amount the insurance was wanted to collect. She wrote an advocacy letter to the landlord's insurance/attorneys explaining the Washington state protection laws for renters, since the insurance company was based in another state. Her letter was persuasive and factual. After the letter was sent off, she did let us know it was now a time to "hurry and wait", but sometimes, the attorneys won't even respond. Sure enough, about 3 months later our landlord contacted us and send us a copy of a letter from his insurance stating they were closing the case without collections. No word was sent to us from them. Angel assured us the case was closed. She was very kind and sympathized with our concerns and very willing to answer questions and revise things as needed. She calmed our fears and was reassured us that our actions were correct. It was a joy to work with her.

Angel is Amazing!
I have an investment property and it's tenants were having issues paying rent due to COVID-19. I had no idea about what to do, so I started looking for a lawyer with deep knowledge on the COVID rules for landlords, 6 phone calls later and after talking to three different lawyers I finally found Angel and she was amazing! I was under a lot of stress for this situation and after speaking with her the first time I understood the options I had and felt confident that we were going to handle the issue in the best way possible for all the parties involved. She provided very sound advice that helped me make my decisions and provided answers to all my questions. I highly recommend her!

Title lawyer
Angel Latterell helped me get the title for my home that I had been trying to get a hold of for many years. She was very good at making sure that I understood every process needed to do and she did everything that I asked for. I would most definitely reach out to her again if I needed help with something like this again.

Business Excellence
I have worked with Angel for the last 4 months to support my business in having a strong legal foundation. I have many facets in my practice as I am a physical therapist, public educator, teacher and offer physical and spiritual wellness in both online and 1:1 format. Angel was able to capture all of my services and provide all the legal documents necessary to support my clients and protect my business by being in full compliance to the laws of Washington State.This has been especially helpful with COVID 19. She has also been integral in advocating for my business by being present in meetings to negotiate wording of contracts with independent contractors to make certain that the business is not taken advantage of. She is kind, clear, compassionate, efficient and wise. I highly recommend her and will continue to utilize her for both professional and personal services.

More than we could have asked for
This dispute with our former landlord was our first legal issue and we were very nervous, but Angel listened to us, heard us and fought hard our behalf. She explained exactly what the law said and walked us through our options. She handled everything with care and in the end, we got what we were owed. We hope to never need an attorney again, but if we do, Angel will be the first person we call.

Landlord tenant issue
I had a specific landlord tenant issue regarding mold and property damage . I had tried for months to find a solution and I posted my story online and Angel answered. So from my experience with Angela she's very compassionate she went above and beyond to look out for my husband and I . I found an angel to be very knowledgeable , easy to talk to and understand as well very protective of her clients well being. she truly puts them first.

Competent and Sound Guidance
Initially reached out to Angel to get her take on my ADU tenant question. I liked her response and reasonable rate so hired her. She was able to clearly interpret for me the current WA state and City of Seattle moratoriums/policies on tenant evictions, provide guidance on options, and email me background information as reference. I would hire her again if the need came up.

Angel reached out to give me advice and helped me solve my problem!
I was in the middle of a complicated situation with my landlord. We were about to go to a lawsuit against each other, so I put my name in the Legal Match. Other lawyers leave a phone number and will charge us for consultation while Angel reached out to me by phone and gave me advice on how she could help. She spent almost an hour listening to my case and when she said I have a chance to win the case we chose her service. She knew the Landlord-Tenant laws really well. She could solve my problem and got my deposit back within a couple of exchanged emails between her and the landlord! Now I got the check! Thank you so much, Angel! You are the best.

Angel was the infectious radiant force that allowed me to bring more unshakable positivity to a stressful situation, turn it around and proceed harmoniously. Speaking with her I felt like, no matter what, everything was going to be alright, and so it was!

Invaluable legal connection
Angel is the first lawyer I have done business with. I normally try to sort things out myself, but my current case was chaotic. She helped us prepare for small claims court so we would present our case in a clear and concise manner. She was courteous, professional, flexible and very understanding. We won our case! I am keeping her in my contacts for myself and for future references because she is invaluable. Thank you very much Angel!

Excellent legal services - copyright
Angel Latterell provided excellent and efficient legal consultation for me in the area of copyright law. With so many online programs and publishing opportunities, it is hard to stay on top of what is "permissible". Angel did a great job of quickly understanding my needs and addressing them from multiple angles.
