The best outcomes in any legal matter are achieved by finding the right balance between tenacious advocacy and cooperation. Strong litigation is necessary in some situations, but it can backfire without the support of a solid legal argument. Negotiation may be best under other circumstances, but you need to know when to make strategic compromises.
We know how to walk that line at The Hanley Law Firm, PLLC, in Seattle, Washington. Our founding lawyer, Elizabeth Hanley, is well-respected by clients and other lawyers for her ability to "do what it takes" for her clients in a dignified way.
Words are the foundation for statutes and legal opinions, but the law itself is not static. It is constantly changing. Attorney Elizabeth Hanley is an active participant in that change, serving on committees which work to draft laws, and with experience testifying in front of the Washington State Legislature.
Having a lawyer on your side with this background is a rare and valuable benefit, because it puts our attorney in a position to understand the past, but anticipate the future. This helps her make crucial decisions, like whether filing a lawsuit immediately or waiting for potential changes to the law could produce optimal results.
We are confident in our legal abilities, having solved problems many of our clients thought were impossible. We also genuinely care about the people we represent. We understand that you may be dealing with tough issues, whether they relate to your financial future, your health or your rights.
When you become our client, we listen to you, clearly explain your options and help you prepare for each step in the legal process. Schedule your first meeting by calling 206-457-2699 or completing a confidential form online.
