About Peter Visser

About me


My practice emphasizes probate and estate planning issues.  I have handled dozens of probates and drafted hundreds of wills during my career.  I understand the issues and the potential problems which may occur when an estate plan is put into operation.  I have handled probates involving as little as $2,000.00, and as much as $5,000,000.00.  I have also served as  an executor in some probates, so I know from the inside the work an executor must perform to complete a probate. 


I have been practicing with Zender Thurston since 1974.  Prior to 1974, I worked as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Washington, worked for a year as an associate with LeCocq, Simonarson & Durnan, and had my own private practice. 


I now work at the law office parts of 4 days per week.  My spare time is spent with my wife, children, grandchildren, and bees.
