If you have accumulated assets through hard work and careful planning, it's a good idea to protect those assets and ensure that they will pass to your loved ones in the manner you elect upon your death.
At the office of Gloria R. James, PLLC, in Kent, Washington, we provide our clients with experienced and trusted legal advice regarding estate planning and business succession. We work with individuals and families from diverse economic backgrounds, assisting them with the full scope of estate planning matters. These include:
- Living trusts
- Family business planning
- Powers of attorney and health care directives
- Probate administration and litigation
Ms. James is also a knowledgeable and accomplished family law attorney who guides her clients through the emotionally charged processes of divorce, child custody, child support, property division and other family law matters.
Experienced Representation With A Caring Touch
Ms. James began her legal career in 1990 following a successful career as a real estate agent and broker. She also taught high school science for several years.
By limiting the number of cases she handles at one time, Ms. James is able to talk through objectives and concerns with clients completely in order to provide highly personalized legal counsel.
We are mindful of controlling expenses and always focus on resolving matters as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. For example, we offer a comprehensive estate planning package that includes drafting a will, durable power of attorney and a health care directive for a reasonable flat fee.
However, if you are faced with a will contest or a contentious marriage dissolution that cannot be resolved through negotiations, Ms. James is a trial-tested lawyer who is always prepared to go to court to protect your rights.
We work with clients throughout western Washington, including King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to answer your questions and review the facts of your case.
