News from the Desk: November 2020

By November 10, 2020 No Comments

Hello all! I hope you are all staying safe and well, and looking forward to a nice Thanksgiving despite the restrictions created by COVID-19.
Our very own Sherry Lueders is on the board of the Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association of Seattle (MAMA), and she co-directed this year’s 14th annual banquet on October 21 – in a virtual setting! This year, the Betty Binns Fletcher Award was given to Amy Nelson, the founder and CEO of The Riveter. We’re so glad that both of these organizations exist for women, mothers and attorneys, and are proud that Sherry is an integral part of MAMA Seattle!
I am looking forward to once again serving as the “Master of Ceremonies” for the Washington State Bar Association’s Best of Continuing Legal Education seminar, which is tentatively scheduled for December 16 and 17. The “Best of CLE” is where I get to channel my best talk show host and walk my peers through the most informative and interesting CLEs of the past year. Are you an attorney who needs a few more credits before 2021? Please check back next month for more information on this event.
We upgraded our website a few months ago, and added a page dedicated to trusts. Please check out the new video I recorded as well as useful links to trust-related blog posts.

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.
