This blog is maintained by Douglas J. Lineberry, Attorney. I am a Seattle-area attorney but serve clients in numerous states and internationally. I enjoy technology and am pleased to take appointments via web-conference as well as teleconference or in person.

My legal practice emphasizes protecting high risk, high net worth individuals, their families and their wealth. I provide an integrated approach to wealth preservation planning and transfer, estate and business succession planning. In addition to traditional estate and estate tax planning strategies, I also employ asset protection strategies such as: asset protection planning for retirement account benefits; offshore and domestic asset protection trusts; protecting real estate equity; and captive insurance companies.

My professional goal is to maintain the highest degree of skill, knowledge and experience in several related areas in order to custom tailor plan and strategies that addresses your personal situation, achieves your personal goals and protects the success that you have achieved.

In addition to wealth preservation, I also work in what might be regarded as the other end of the wealth spectrum. My knowledge and experience in bankruptcy is in fact a valuable asset protection resource. The ultimate test of any asset protection plan is how well that plan holds up in the event of bankruptcy. Bankruptcy judges and trustees are known to give particular scrutiny to asset protection plans. Having a sound background in bankruptcy gives my clients an edge that is often absent from other plans.

In addition to my legal practice, I also enjoy putting my business and accounting background and interests to work. I find great professional pleasure in consulting with business owners, managers and boards on both legal and non-legal aspects of their business operations. I have served on various boards and board committees of both profit and non-profit entities.
