David Leen Brought Clarity to Some Muddy Waters 4/18/2006

While I have followed this advice of my "friends" to patisseries and plumbers, I had not until today taken the plunge into the realm of legal counsel. I am pleased to report that, yet again, my Judy's Book community pointed me to a trusted resource. I have been sitting, almost literally, on a investment property contract (LLC) for darn near 60 days. I know that timing because the time-limit on signing is about to run out. I have read it several times but was not feeling any more grounded in the material for my efforts. It became clear to me about two weeks ago: I need an attorney. And today I got one. Prompted by the posted review, I called David Leen (Leen & O'Sullivan, PLLC) and asked for an appointment. He gave me his availability and asked if I could get a him a copy fo the contract to pre-read. I could and I did. We met this afternoon for about an hour and it was absolutely helpful and pleasant. He had reviewed the contract before my arrival so he was prepared. He asked pointed question which, while they felt personal in nature, were exactly the sorts of questions for which I need clear answers...he helped that process. He advised me. I felt like we collaborated on a counter proposal and in the end I walked out of his office feeling clear with renewed confidence in my intuition. I will certainly follow up with him as I take my little project to the next step. He will also be my estate guy going forward. His office is in an old, beautifully restored Victorian on Capitol Hill (Denny & Belmont), with a surprising amount of street parking available AND free parking for clients (in the lot) next to the building. more

What to Do if Facing Eviction. 3/18/2006

There are a lot of laws that supposedly defend tenants, but really the deck is stacked in favor of property owners. (And if you haven't heard already, the legal system's design favors whoever pays the most money to win, which is why so many innocent people would rather pay than go to court.) This probably isn't obvious until after you've already been evicted, but you may discover the following: The court commissioners are jaded from hearing people lie to them all the time. The attorneys at the free legal clinic at the courthouse don't even get an hour to prepare your case at the show-cause hearing and probably won't be able to help you to prepare a shred of evidence in your favor. The police don't even know that they are enforce the "wrongful eviction clause" of the "Just Cause Eviction Ordinance" and will even deny that they do when presented with a copy of the part of the municipal code that says that they do so. Therefore, you will need to hire a professional with years in the business who can stand up to the "bottom feeders of the legal system" that often represent property owners that sometimes use sleazy tricks to win cases. David Leen knows more about this obscure area of law than perhaps anyone else in the legal system in Seattle. more
