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.

I telephoned Lynn because I needed a second legal opinion, to help me judge the work of another attorney, and I essentially chose her from the yellow pages. I had read that finding an attorney who is willing to risk giving an opinion about the work of another attorney can be difficult, because of liability issues.
Within minutes of meeting Lynn I knew that she was the attorney I had been hoping to find: she is not only fearless, fair and honest ("Potential liability -- that's what we have liability insurance for: in case we mess up and hurt our client's interests, and that's as it should be --I think a client should be compensated if their interests are harmed," she said), but she is also what has been called, in admiration, a "lifelong learner:" "I love reviewing the work of other attorneys, and having them review my work, as well," she said. "The law is always changing, and so is society, and one of the best ways to keep one's skills and knowledge current is keep informed about what others in the field are doing, and how they are doing it, and to have them give feedback about your own work, as well," she told me.
And Lynn turned out to be wonderful to work with!
Knowledgeable, fair, willing and eager to learn, having top people in her Rolodex to call should other areas of expertise be required -- I believe Lynn is everything I could ever want in an attorney.
I recommend her highly, and wholeheartedly. I wished she had been the first attorney contacted!

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.
