Practice Areas and Firm Philosophy
Founded in 2003, the firm began in La Conner, Washington. As business grew and client needs changed, the firm moved to Old Downtown in Mount Vernon, Washington. As the firm advances to meet client needs, matters can be handled throughout the State of Washington and not only in Island, Whatcom, Skagit, and Snohomish Counties where the firm established a base.
The firm handles many types of cases including Divorce, Parenting Plans, Establishment of Parentage, Adoptions, and other matters pertaining to the family structure such as Family Owned Businesses, Business Formation, Estate Planning, Wills, Probate and Immigration Issues.
Client needs are, once again, changing, and the firm is devoted to meeting those needs. Many of those who contact the firm are not in a position to afford an attorney but need help of varying varieties. Because of this, the firm now offers a type of Limited Representation unique in Skagit County and fairly rare throughout the State of Washington. Please see the "About" page for details on how you can receive the legal help you need without incurring the expenses of hiring a traditional law firm.
The firm also strives to be on the forefront of patient protections in the area of Mental Health Care. RCW 71.32.050 provides for Mental Health Advance Directives in the areas of early dementia and Alzheimer's care. Those with diagnoses such as Schizophrenia that may render them intermittently incapable of logical decision making can also benefit from these advance decision making tools while in a state of mind to legally do so. Both patients and their families can benefit from the peace of mind enabled by these documents. Please call or email the firm for an appointment to discuss these new and exciting developments in Washington State law.
As part of the firm's commitment to Mental Health in Washington State, Amanda Johnson is a trained Title 11 Guardian ad Litem for Allegedly Incapacitated Persons. The Title 11 program is entirely separate from the Title 26 program for Guardians ad Litem appointed by the Court to help in cases regarding children.
You cannot ask for a specific Guardian ad Litem to be appointed to your loved one's case, and Amanda is only on the Guardian ad Litem list in certain Washington Counties. However, if you have found this page in your quest to determine if the proper Guardian ad Litem has been appointed to help your loved one it is the firm's hope that you will find comfort in the expertise acquired through almost fifteen years of legal practice.
The first thing this firm does with all potential clients is sit down for a face to face meeting in the form of a consultation at a rate of $100. This gives the potential client a chance to meet their potential attorney and determine if this is someone they are willing to trust with such important and emotional matters as those the firm handles.
This also gives the firm a chance to determine if we want to work with you as a client. We do not take all cases that are offered to us. Sometimes personalities do not mesh, and sometimes the firm has a potential conflict with your case. If it happens that we consider another attorney more appropriate for you needs, we will refer you to their office.
Please see the About page for more information regarding our Limited Scope of Practice program, Practice Areas page for more information about what types of law the firm does, and the Publications page for more information on our paid consultations plus our Family Law e-book.
