News from the Desk: June 2017

By June 14, 2017 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

Happy almost-summer! I hope you are looking forward to some fun summer events.

Sherry and I will be attending the Phinney Neighborhood Association Business Social on June 14. Melissa Forziat, entrepreneur and author of Small Business Marketing on a Budget, will share tips for finding common ground with other businesses, and ideas for working together. As a former President of the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce when that was still around, I find events like this important. Our firm strongly believes in participating in and supporting our local business community.

On June 21, Sherry and I will attend the Judicial Appreciation and Honors Luncheon hosted by Washington Women Lawyers. This annual event honors Washington’s judges and those who advocate for women and minorities. If you’re interested in attending, click here.

Finally, on the evening of June 22, Sherry and I look forward to participating in the Center for Women & Democracy’s Third Annual Women’s Inter-Generational Conversation. The Center hosts a monthly speaker, and June’s highly popular event creates a forum for women to discuss issues important to women in all stages of life. If you’re interested in learning more, or would like to attend, click here.

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 at
