Wills And Estates

I founded Solution Law in 2012 because of multiple prior client requests seeking to continue their professional services relationships.  I am a leading attorney in the local area handling escrow closings of businesses and have experience with a wide variety of business escrows including restaurants, manufacturers, auto body shops, service industries and others. My practice includes a wide variety of contract drafting, contract review, equipment and premises leases, entity choice and formation, business operations, business succession planning, and entity termination matters. I also serve individual clients with expertise in real property, estate planning and probate matters.

Before opening practice as Solution Law, I worked as a junior partner at a Tacoma firm for over ten years where my practice focused primarily on business, real property, estate planning and probate matters. During my tenure there I managed the Complex Escrow Group that served the business and real property community with top notch residential, business and commercial real estate escrow services; gained substantial experience with IRS Section 1031 exchanges; and received exposure to a wide variety of title insurance matters.

In the years before entering the practice of law I worked for over 25 years in local manufacturing and non-profit entities, most recently as a senior executive and manager.  I grew up in the Lakewood area and reside in Steilacoom where I am an active Kiwanis member and an elected councilmember for the Town of Steilacoom.  I attended Seattle University School of Law and graduated in 2000 cum laude.  In 1994 I earned a BBA from Pacific Lutheran University with concentrations in marketing and operations management.
