About Eden

Learn Eden’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Elder law
    Elder Law encompasses general estate planning as well as Medicaid qualification for long term care needs. I work with families to review facility contracts, to protect assets and to prepare and execute Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Directives, Funeral/Cremation instructions, and other appropriate legal documents.

    30 years

  2. Estate planning
    Estate planning encompasses planning for management of your health care decisions and your property during your life, and management and disposition of your assets after your death. It also includes an analysis of your assets to determine tax and beneficiary issues. The usual documentation may include Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, Will and/or Revocable Living Trust, Community Property Agreement, and Cremation/Interment Instructions.

    34 years

  3. Probate
    Estate settlement begins with an analysis of whether probate is necessary, and involves guiding clients through the appropriate probate or non-probate process. I represent Personal Representatives of estates in probate proceedings in King County, WA, and have also served as court-appointed successor Personal Representative for estates in which the Personal Representative resigned or was removed by the court.

    38 years

  4. Trusts
    Trusts are entities that hold assets to be managed for the benefit of others. I advise clients regarding many types of trusts, including Revocable Living Trusts, trusts for minors, trusts for disabled persons, and trusts for minimizing estate tax.

    38 years

  5. Wills and living wills
    Every person, regardless of age or wealth, is advised to have a Will to designate who should be responsible for the management and distribution of assets after death. This is a gift you give to your loved ones. Another such gift is a "Living Will", which in Washington is a document expressing your wishes regarding artificial life support if you are in a terminal or unconscious condition. Again, age or wealth do not matter, as accidents can happen to anyone at any time.

    34 years

I have first-hand, personal experience in matters of probate and non-probate estate settlement, assisted living and long term care placement, financial planning for long term care, and using powers of attorney for financial and health care matters.  This has enhanced my ability to help clients navigate the requirements that financial institutions and health care facilities may impose in order to allow a family representative to make decisions or carry out their loved-ones wishes.


After many years of practice, first as a sole practitioner and later as an attorney with a downtown Seattle law firm, I am once again a sole practititioner.  My practice is mobile.  I meet with clients in their homes or mutually convenient locations, and do not charge for my travel time or mileage.  This allows me to get a sense of my clients as members of the community, and it allows clients to relax in a familiar environment while addressing often unfamiliar issues.


In 2001 I added to my repetoire by returning to school and earning a Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies, which has enabled me to consult with and volunteer in various museums and non-profit institutions. When I am not volunteering or assisting clients, I may be skiing, outrigger canoeing, or gardening, depending on the season.

A Most Pleasurable Experience
We recently hired Eden to help us get our estate planning (Wills, Powers of Attorney, etc) set up and organized. The whole experience was easy and stress free. Eden knew her stuff and was able to explain each part of the process to us with ease and clarity. Honoring our desire to keep things as simple and efficient as possible, Eden suggested that we set up a Living Trust, something that had never been suggested to us before. Eden was communicative and always available to us throughout the process. We are so happy with her work, and feel such relief that with her expertise this otherwise daunting task is complete. We feel so organized! AND, she makes house calls. Thanks, Eden!!!

Eden is extremely knowledgeable in her areas of practice and we will surely use her again in the future. We would highly recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney that is caring and personable and who really knows what they are doing.

Fantastic Experience
My husband and I worked with Eden to create our wills and were very satisfied with her services. We were new to the process and had many questions. Eden took time and care to ensure all of our questions were answered and patiently and professionally walked us through the process from start to finish. Overall, she was an excellent communicator, her expertise was obvious, and our overall experience was incredibly positive. Highly recommend.

Excellent legal service and personable
After our mother passed away, we needed an probate attorney. Eden is extremely knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and compassionate through a difficult time. I am in CA but Eden was able to easily walk me through the process as the Estate trustee via email and phone calls. She is patient and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Eden to anyone in need of the services she provides.

Great Attorney, Great Service, Great Price
My wife and I contacted Eden R. Toner after reviewing other reviews on this website. We were very pleased with the professionalism and insights she offered. She came to our apartment to review our will and trusts to make updates. She went over all of her recommendations so we had a good understanding of the changes, and was very patient with my hearing-impaired wife. My wife and I were highly satisfied and are pleased to recommend Eden R. Toner.

Exceptional Service
I highly recommend Eden. If you are looking for an attorney who is a great listener, professional, trustworthy, a compassionate advocate and who really knows the law, this is your person​. Eden was very instrumental in assisting me through the nursing home process for a loved one, wrote the last will and testimony and durable power of attorney. She was able to point out in language that made it easy for me to understand the pros and cons of various legalities​ and provided practical advice to resolve them. In working with her, you get the clear impression that she cares deeply about her clients and will get them the best possible result. ​

Updating an existing trust
My husband and I updated our trust originally created in 1997. We moved recently from another state and she assisted in making our documents as required in Washington state. We also had unusual out-of-state items which she carefully researched. Eden met with us at our home which was easier for us than having to meet at an office. Eden is very personable and professional and completed the process very quickly. We have given her name as a reference for others interested in creating a family trust. It was a relief to have the trust completed.

Eden did a great job answering our 1000 questions and concerns, and then directing us in what was best for our needs in estate planning, wills, trusts, poa etc. Will definitely use her again!

Eden made our first time legal experience a positive one.
We were fortunate to find Eden in our local area, who is extremely qualified in estate planning documentation and was able to make recommendations complying with our wishes. Eden came to our home for our first meeting and thoroughly covered all our questions, concerns and requests. We were also able to handle some forms directly through email attachments which made things very easy for us. She produced all documents needed (will, power of attorney for financial and healthcare, healthcare directive, and family trust documents). She personally brought them to our home where we were able to perform the signing. She was very professional and very experienced in these matters. We found the process to be enlightening and quite easy. Eden works out of her home, has low overhead, and her fees are reasonable. We were on a tight schedule and everything was completed in a 3 week period. We could not have been better served! Eden is personable and so helpful in helping us to understand the terminology that can sometimes be confusing to the average person.

Personal Attention
During the last year I have utilized the legal expertise of Eden Toner for consultation and preparation of a financial power of attorney. My situation was somewhat complicated and I needed an experienced and thorough attorney to understand and address my needs. Her personal attention was exceptional and reflects a genuine concern for her clients. I found Mrs. Toner to be capable and direct in answering my numerous questions, as well as obtaining related sources to assist me in senior issues. She is obviously well schooled with 25 years of experience in practice, as pertains to powers of attorney, trusts, and issues of probate. This enabled her to develop documents that were precise to meet my particular situation. Recently again engaged the services of Mrs. Toner to prepare a PA for healthcare and accompanying physicians directive. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of the many qualifiers and issues she addressed in both documents. In this era, there are many factors involved in healthcare decisions. Her experience has given her a broad scope of alternatives for the principal, like myself, to consider. She was patient while I thought through the alternatives and then moved forward with a document to reflect my personal choices. Most certainly I have recommended her to other newcomers to the Seattle area and if needed would use her services for consultation again.

First-rate legal work on estate matters
She advised my sisters and me on the establishment of a trust for my disabled mother. She prepared the trust instrument, transferred real and personal property into it, drafted Mom's will, and then promptly and sensitively helped me figure what steps I needed to take when Mom died. She is smart, honest, responsive and pleasant to work with. I recommend her without reservation.

A Knowledgeable and Compassionate Attorney
Eden Toner was a great help for my Godmother/best friend who needed someone to come to her home after her spinal fractures and an eventual cancer diagnosis. She was professional, intelligent, caring and personable. She assisted with the healthcare directives, wills and a trust advising both my Godmother and my husband and myself on choices and recommendations. Eden continued to keep in close contact during my Godmother's decline of health and a fall and all the subsequent research and relocation we had to do from the hospital to skilled nursing to assisted living. She was informative and supportive in my role as Durable Power of Attorney and helped me navigate that position. At times I was completely overwhelmed with the physical and mental aspects of care-giving and the emotional confrontation of losing a loved one. Eden was there for support. She has the professional and personal experience to sense the nuances of a situation. She broached the difficult situations-- legal, health and financial conversations-- with all of us in a succinct manner with follow-up inquiries, assisting us in bringing those issues to the forefront for solutions. Eden visited my Godmother several times at these various places, sometimes just to check in on her which my Godmother immensely enjoyed. Though there are still many legal issues I do not understand Eden has greatly increased my knowledge. I highly recommend Eden as an attorney for end-of-life issues.

Eden Toner is my estate planner. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and a trusted adviser.
My husband suffered a paralyzing stoke that placed him in a long term care facility. Medicare helped to cover his medical and care expenses for a maximum of 100 days from the date of his stroke. Fortunately a friend highly recommended Eden Toner to legally advise and offer options to organize my financial estate so that an application could be submitted for Medicaid benefits after the Medicare funds expired. Eden willingly made visits to my home and scheduled meetings so as not to conflict with the time I spent with my husband. She was professional and eager to answer the may questions I faced in a totally unfamiliar financial and legal situation. Eden clearly explained my choice of options verbally and in written form. Time was of the essence to liquidate my assets and purchase annuities to satisfy Medicaid qualifications. Eden recommended a financial firm and adviser with whom both Eden and I worked closely to meet required deadlines and medicaid requirements. Eden revised our Living Will, established a Revocation of Community Agreement, and recorded a Quit Claim Deed. We worked together assembling the necessary documentation for the Medicaid application. We were in constant communication through emails, phone, and correspondence. Eden's statement of services was a detailed accounting of her time, services, and rates. My husband passed away a few days after the Medicare 100 day limitation. Eden cancelled the Medicaid application. She revised my Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, established a Revocable Living Trust Agreement, and recorded a Quit Claim Deed. Eden put my estate in order and I gained a friend.

Eden Toner, an outstanding attorney
Eden has been our attorney since 1997 when my father passed away. Our immediate need was to assure that our developmentally disabled sister would be cared for. Eden reviewed the will and trust documents and guided us through the the process. It was complex as the documents had been created in another state, however he was now a WA resident. Eden has guided us thru the process of making our own estate plan and documents. She keeps us current when there are changes in the laws and when our needs change. We give Eden an "A+" for her knowledge of the law, her integrity, her patience and understanding. She gave us the choice of meeting in our home, which was great, It was convenient for us as we could access all of the required documents and it was "comfortable"! We are most fortunate to in the good hands of an exceptional attorney.

Very Experienced for Estate Planning AND Very Reasonable rates!
I contacted Ms. Toner to review my (lack of) estate planning documentation and to make recommendations complying with my wishes. After a couple of conversations, and online introductions to my financial manager, we had several short clarifying conversations and she produced all documents needed (will, power of attorney for healthcare, healthcare directive, family trust documents). She then personally brought them to my office where we performed the signing. She was very professional, very experienced in these matters. I found the process to be enlightening and quite easy. Although most of her years of experience was with a large firm in Seattle, she now works out of her home, has low overhead, and her fees were extremely reasonable. Could not have been better served!
