I have more than 34 years of experience representing businesses and individuals throughout Bellevue, Seattle and the surrounding areas. I handle a wide range of legal issues, from real estate and business law, to estate planning and probate. In every case I handle, I strive to achieve my clients' legal goals while sparing them unnecessary time and expense. As an experienced real estate law and business law attorney, I know the importance of the bottom line. I understand the financial pressures my clients are facing, and always strive to reach cost-effective solutions to their legal problems. When handling legal disputes, whenever possible I work with my clients to spare them the cost of going to court, but am always prepared for litigation.
Of course, legal counsel from an experienced attorney can help you avoid a legal dispute in the first place. Advice and counsel about your situation before you get involved or make a binding commitment as well as finding out the legal framework in which you are going to be involved is important in avoiding or minimizing the chances of having a bigger problem down the line. I work to handle my clients' cases with attention to detail, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts.
Precision in drafting legal documents is essential as well as understanding the legal context in which documents will be reviewed and, if necessary, enforced. I strive to insure that my clients do not sign any document unless they understand every sentence and every paragraph as well as why various provisions are necessary to further their goals and objectives. Part of this drafting and review process is to approach each agreement or contract from the perspective of the other party and find ways to prevent them from breaking the agreement.
Whatever legal issue you are facing, I will work with you to help you achieve a favorable outcome.
