Garvey Schubert Barer doesn't leave it vague for clients 11/13/2006

I'd be pretty ticked if an attorney failed to tell me some of the strategies for handling an estate and avoiding probate. In fact, I would first wonder if the attorney is indeed an estate planning attorney. Not all attorneys can do all kinds of work - a business attorney doesn't have the same skills as an estate attorney. Perhaps you should get a better attorney recommendation. Actually, when it comes to estate planning you should really be looking at input from multiple angles: tax, legal, and administration. To that point, I have mentioned Garvey Schubert Barer as having some excellent attorneys. I've used these folks for my own estate planning, I've referred Tim, and he's also spoken at client education functions that I put on. Also good about working with them is the firm is large enough to have many specialties within one facility so if you need help outside the scope of what one attorney specializes in your contact can get help from a knowledgeable colleague. A former review for the firm was done on JB by me here: Specifically, I would recommend Tim Burkart.

I like Mary Kazlusky for her extensive knowledge and experience but she is also a manager there so she likely has many good staff working with her: Laird Norton Tyee Mary Kazlusky 801 2nd Ave, Ste 1600 Seattle, WA 98104 Phone: 206-464-5217 Email: For tax issues I have a couple of recommendations: Foster + Company PS, CPAs Rick Mangan 113 Bell St Seattle, WA 98121 Phone: 206-448-7500 Email: Web: Philip Maxeiner, CPA 1410 Market Street Kirkland, WA 98033 Phone: 425-827-6100 Fax: 425-828-6444 Email: Good luck! more
