About Jessica

Learn Jessica’s areas of practice.

I am an estate planning, probate and trust, and elder law attorney. My goal is to provide compassionate, respectful counsel with an emphasis on clear and accessible explanations of legal issues that put clients at ease.

I co-founded North Sound Law Group and was previously a partner at Barron Smith Daugert. I enjoy working with individuals and families, building long-term client relationships, and serving the community both in and outside of my practice. I believe in the power of estate planning for peace of mind and ensuring dignity in times of crisis.

I have exclusively practiced in estate planning, probate and trust since 2012, and I was a partner at Barron Smith Daugert before co-founding North Sound Law Group. I previously authored and collaborated on numerous publications in diverse fields including law, policy, and organizational evaluation. I currently serve as the Probate and Trust Council Director for the Real Property, Probate and Trust Section of the Washington State Bar, overseeing the Section's legislative activity and continuing legal education.
