I have been in private practice since 1967, serving the South Sound area with a focus on elder law, estate planning and the needs of local businesses and families. My true joy in practicing law comes from building long term relationships with my clients so that I can be there for them and their families for many years to come. I am now serving many fourth generation clients.


I am extremely passionate about our community and have been an active member of many local service organizations for decades.


I am an avid collector military history memorabilia and artifacts with items spanning many wars and conflicts, dating back to the Civil War. My clients and staff frequently tease me about my office being more of a museum than an office.

Ken Luce has worked with me on a myriad of legal issues in family, business and estate law areas. He gets things right the first time. He has a solid network of professionals in all areas of life on speed dial. Ken has helped me resolve some difficult issues. I have and will continue to recommend Ken and Zac Luce for their valuable, well-reasoned approaches to law. They are integrity.

Excesllent result
The firm was fantastic, reasonable and I was part of the process and not just a source of funds. They do a lot of work for the military and are excellent.

Quick to resolve
I hired Mr. Luce to assist with a domestic violence matter. I was impressed with his opinion and confidence to “shoot” the perpetrator. This was a quicker resolution than the court system could have ever provided and now I feel safe. Thank you Ken!
