The official start of Spring is only a week away! This time of year always brings to mind cleaning out, clearing up and uncluttering—a great time to get your estate planning or new business in order!
Speaking of which, the Worldwide Headquarters of our law firm (my home office) got a major remodel the week of February 19! I had very old carpet taken out, new floors installed and new paint put on the walls. Although the construction process was quite irritating for our Office Morale Leader, Roger, I am very happy to have an updated space to work in!
I am very proud that my firm was one of the first fully virtual law firms in Seattle. KIRO News took notice of that and included me in a news story about telecommuting on February 14! I’ve always believed the less time we spend in our cars, the better it would be for our city and our planet, not to mention the many time and money saving efficiencies and conveniences that accompany working from a home office.

I took my yearly vacation to the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament in Indian Wells, California last week. I took in lots of sun, lots of tennis and lots of time with friends! I enjoyed hanging out at the tournament with my friend Mary Anne, and I also loved seeing Roger Federer practice!
Sherry co-presented a Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) Readmission Continuing Legal Education (CLE) on March 8, with Wendy Malkin of the Salmon Bay Law Group. The presentation focused on legal ethics and client communications. In particular, Sherry discussed the needs of clients who have diminished capacity, and how to communicate with them in an effective way that allows them to make informed decisions to the extent possible.
As always, I would love to hear your questions and comments. If you have any questions about our firm and the work we do, please contact us or visit our website.
Prompted by a recent episode of the hit show This Is Us, Sherry uses a slow cooker tragedy as an example of how a Testamentary Trust can protect your kids if something should befall you and your partner.
