How We Work


The Estates & Elders office is in Liberty Lake, where parking is free and the building handicapped accessible. You are welcome to visit us at our office, by appointment.

We also make “house calls.” Our meeting can be at your home or that of a family member, a hospital or the place where you are receiving care. We do not charge for travel time.


We’re available on the day and time that works for your family, including evenings and weekends, by appointment.

How We Charge for Services

We charge when there is some legal service we can provide for you. Once we know what that is, we will quote, in most cases a flat fee for the work so we both know what to expect. All flat fees include reasonable contact by telephone, email, mail or in-person meetings until we have met your need.

We will charge you for court or other fees like deed recording on a pass-through basis, but not for mundane things like copies or postage.

Our fees are reasonable and we work hard to keep costs low. We accept credit cards and payment plans. If the fee is an issue, please discuss it with us.

If We Cannot Do It, We'll Help You Find Someone Who Can

We are not the kind of attorneys you see in the courtroom on television. We confine our practice to planning, counseling and document preparation. If your matter is one that may end up in court, or for which we do not have the skills you need, we will refer you to another trusted attorney.

We have a wide network of professionals who provide services to elders and their families and we routinely make referrals within our network. Please ask if you are looking for a certain type of in-home care or care facility, a financial advisor, a realtor or any other type of service. Serving elders is a team effort.

Contact us today and we'll work to help you get the legal help you need.
