    As unpleasant as it may be to think about it, having a well-planned estate can save your loved ones from much inconvenience down the road. Our approach to estate planning is caring and considerate. The elder law attorney at Justin Elder Law Office can work with you to plan your estate in a way that makes you feel comfortable and valued.

  3. Probate
    30%
    Probate procedures in Washington can be relatively simple. Unlike other states, like California, Washington attorneys do not charge a percentage of the estate. This enables people to probate a will without worrying about exorbitant fees. Few things are more difficult than the passing of a loved one. At Justin Elder Law Office, we will help you work through the legal mechanics of this trying time.

Immigration Review
I was a client of Justin Elder. He helped my wife and I do her immigration papers and provided legal advice for making sure everything was correct in the paperwork. And, my wife is now an official legal immigrant and could not have done it without Justin Elder.
Posted by James | September 30, 2014
Grateful to know.
I know Justin remains genuinely concerned about our well-being. Right from the beginning he made a concerted effort to protect my wife's and my best interests with respect to our individual wills. Justin is sensitive to the growing cost of legal work and I consider his services to be a great value. Justin is kind, smart, thoughtful, caring, honest, and truly a pleasure to know--he's a wonderful person, as well as an exceptional professional.

Great lawyer!
Mr. Elder got me my immigrant visa. Throughout the whole process he was very helpful and patient even though I faced some difficulties obtaining all my necessary paperwork. I would recommend him to anyone--especially people who need help with complicated and rigid bureaucracy.
