Lynn and her office did an extraordinary job for us, resolving a complicated and difficult muddle of a case and relieving us of a huge stress in our lives. Our situation had been bungled by another lawyer, and disentangling the pieces was overwhelming. Lynn and her office were able to assess the situation quickly and adroitly, form a plan, and execute masterfully. In our interactions with Lynn and her staff, we always felt confident with their expertise and attention. Even more, we felt that we were heard and respected.
I was impressed by the clarity and rigor of all the documents Lynn's office prepared. Even had our case not gone in our favor I would have been impressed by their work; the fact that our case was successful despite being messed up by our former lawyer speaks to the quality of their work.
Overall, this experience stands out as the best legal experience I have ever had.

Walking into the office of Lynn St Louis is quite the experience. First, you are greeted by the front desk worker who opens the door for you before you have a chance to and welcomes you in. Then she offers you bottled water, coffee or soda (they also have an assortment of candy). The office environment is peaceful and inviting. The meeting room is private and calming and Lynn St Louis takes the time to answer questions and explains everything in detail so that anyone can follow the legal language. My wife and I are moving to Indonesia and were required by our company to have wills, so we had Lynn St Louis write up wills that met our needs. Thank You, I would highly recommend Lynn St Louis to anyone seeking a personable lawyer.

My father was approaching his death and his affairs were in horrible shape. Within a week Lynn was able to prepare all the documents necessary to make sure that all was in good order prior to his passing. In addition she arranged for a geriatric social worker to assist his wife in moving into an independent living cottage on the campus where he resided in a nursing home.
Since my father’s death Lynn has been absolutely wonderful in working through the probate process and assisting in dealing with a supplemental needs trust which she established for my stepmother.
Thanks to Lynn and her staff an untenable situation was made very manageable.

Lynn's compassion and dedication to her clients makes her a tremendous attorney. The energy she brings to her firm makes it a wonderful place to work. She has the ability to solve problems by approaching every situation from every possible angle. It is a pleasure working in her firm.

In my opinion, Lynn is hands down the best Elder Law attorney in Spokane and probably throughout Eastern Washington. She is a true champion for her clients, well respected by the government, and is a true professional. I would highly recommend her and the rest of her firm.
