What We Do
We take a comprehensive approach to your legal needs to provide you with efficient and effective solutions with our client-centered practice. We work in all areas of estate planning and probate, domestic relations, real estate, bankruptcy, and business transactions. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, planning your estate, involved in a contentious divorce, or need a financial “fresh start”, we will represent you effectively and compassionately.
When it comes to truly taking care of the ones you love, nothing is more important than a complete estate plan that clearly outlines how you want your estate distributed while making sure to avoid needless fees and taxes. After all, you are the one who earned the assets that make up your estate and you should control where they go upon your death.
Buying, selling, leasing, or refinancing commercial or residential real estate requires a significant financial investment. It pays to protect your interests with an experienced real estate lawyer at your side.
Whether you are buying, selling, or leasing real estate, we provide skilled guidance at every phase of the process. We have over 20 years of experience representing buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants, lenders and borrowers, developers, investors and other parties with real estate transactions.
The entrepreneurial spirit is embraced by the attorneys at Andrews and Arbenz. It is with great pride that we help clients create, build, maintain and enhance their businesses. After all, we are small business owners ourselves and therefore understand the challenges you face. Whether you need advising as to the proper entity you want your business to be (corporation, LLP, LLC, etc.) or help with taxes or signing a lease, we can help. One of the most important aspects of a successful business is a strong legal foundation that incorporates your company’s personal, professional and financial goals.
Domestic Relations, Family Law, & Divorce
You matter to us. All families have different needs, and we will help you navigate your legal issues to a conclusion that best suits the unique needs of your family. We work closely with our clients to obtain successful results in the areas of divorce, child custody, child support, maintenance (alimony), modification of support or visitation, and protective orders.
Probate & Trust Administration
Legal issues and obligations triggered upon a person’s death can seem confusing and overwhelming. You’ve just lost a loved one and having to deal with a reading of the will, probate and estate distribution issues – on top of everything else – can be too much to bear. Although these legal issues are important and must be addressed, we will encourage you to first take care of yourself and your family before jumping into the logistics of probating a will in Tacoma, Gig Harbor or elsewhere in Western Washington. When you are emotionally ready to proceed, we will work with you (whether as a trustee, executor or beneficiary) to simplify the process and bring about the expedient administration of estates and trusts, no matter their size or location.
Your family matters to us. We will assist you in navigating relative and stepparent adoptions, second-parent adoptions, and adult adoptions. This is a life changing event that can sometimes be overwhelming, with long term effects for both biological and adoptive families. Let us help to ensure that your interests are well protected and appropriately represented.
Bankruptcy & Creditor’s Rights
In economically challenging times, bankruptcy can help provide a “fresh start” for debtors who are no longer able to meet the demands of their creditors. This can result from a loss of a job, injury, divorce, foreclosure, or the general decline of the financial markets. With the unprecedented COVID-19 epidemic, these and other life changing events have, unfortunately, become more common.
The Narrows Law Group is a Tacoma law firm located in the heart of Old Town providing advice and representation in the areas of estate planning, probate, business transactions and corporate law, real estate, bankruptcy, domestic relations, and adoptions.
