News from the Desk: September 2019

By September 10, 2019 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

I can’t believe the summer is ending and we are about to enter the beautiful season of autumn. September is a busy month for us. To start things off with a bang, September 8 was my law firm’s 20th anniversary! We are proud to have achieved this milestone, and we’re grateful to have served such wonderful clients for two decades now. Thank you for your loyalty and support; it is very appreciated.

Sherry and I will be updating our website videos for your viewing pleasure on September 20. Please check our website in the coming months to see what’s new. I hope they keep you entertained – I know we will have fun filming!

Calling all fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners…I would love for you to join me for some enlightenment on Saturday, September 21 at my seminar being held at the 2019 Washington Small Business Fair! I’ll be presenting on “Business Law Essentials” at this free and fantastic event. RSVP today!

Last but not least, on September 30, I’m joining Jeanne Marie Clavere (Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) Professional Responsibility Counsel), for a presentation to the WSBA Senior Lawyers Section on Ethics & Technology. In addition, the August King County Bar Association Bar Bulletin published an article from Sherry regarding Washington’s new human composting bill  and also republished my American Bar Association GPSolo eReport article “Under Pressure? Loosen that Release Valve with a Long Vacation“.


The two photos above are from Sherry’s trip to Orcas Island this month. Her dog Emily appears to be having a great time exploring 🙂

This photo is from Erin’s trip to Harstine Island with her family in August. They enjoyed lots of bonfires, s’mores and played tons of games!


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.
