Estate Planning

Estate planning can be a difficult topic to face, but a proper plan ensures that you are able to pass your assets and care for your loved ones in the manner of your choosing. Careful planning also can mitigate potential federal and state estate taxes. As part of an estate plan, you also can provide clarity to your loved ones concerning your end-of-life wishes.

I provide many estate planning services, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts, including revocable living trusts
  • Healthcare directives
  • Estate and gift tax planning
  • Pet trusts

Tax Law

Dealing with taxing authorities such as the IRS or the Washington Department of Revenue can be intimidating and confusing. I help individuals and businesses with tax planning to minimize potential issues with taxing authorities. I can also assist after a taxing authority has contacted you.

The tax law services I provide include:

  • Federal, state, and local tax planning
  • Audit defense
  • Offers in compromise
  • Innocent spouse relief
