Stokes Lawrence, P.S.
Lori counsels individuals and families on all aspects of estate planning, including estate and income tax minimization strategies, charitable giving, lifetime wealth transfers and gift tax matters, property ownership characterization issues, and agreements for both married and unmarried clients.
Lori also routinely represents individual and corporate fiduciaries in trust administration and probate cases that present complex issues related to asset valuation, estate and income taxation, business concerns and sales, and commercial and residential real estate holdings.
Trust and estate matters sometimes involve disputes among various parties or necessitate corrective modifications. In such cases, Lori serves as legal counsel to beneficiaries or other parties involved in mediation or another dispute resolution process within which agreement is sought, often under Washington’s TEDRA (Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act) law.
