News from the Desk: June 2018

By June 12, 2018 March 5th, 2020 No Comments

Happy June! We’re just over a week away from the start of summer!

The second installment of my GP Solo eReport series, entitled From Athlete to Advocate: Lessons Learned Through Sports Propel Lawyers to Compete as Champions, was published last month. In this installment, I delve into how being involved in athletics can impact an attorney’s career decisions including the initial decision to become an attorney, and later, the choice of an area of practice and whether to start a solo or small-firm legal practice. Please take a look and let me know what you think!

May was a busy month at our firm! First, Sherry and I attended the May 16 dinner of the Estate Planning Council of Seattle, where we are both members. We enjoyed interacting with colleagues and listening to a presentation concerning Bitcoin.

Then, on May 22, Sherry and I presented a continuing legal education (CLE) course on probate for the Seattle Select Attorneys Association. Our presentation focused on the mechanics of probate and estate administration, using as an example the fictional couple of Antonio and Bettina who tragically died when their slow cooker exploded. We walked the attorneys through the administration of Antonio’s and Bettina’s estates. We thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity, and appreciated being invited to speak!

Finally, on May 23, I presented another CLE course for the King County Bar Association entitled “Ethical Considerations Involved in Practicing in a Virtual Law Firm.” As the owner of one of the first law firms in Seattle to go virtual, I’m always pleased to speak on this interesting and challenging topic.

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.
