Stokes Lawrence Estate Planning lawyers Doug Lawrence, RoseMary Reed and Katie Groblewski were again recognized as notable practitioners in the 2018 Chambers High Net Worth Guide (HNW). This is the third consecutive year Doug and RoseMary were honored and the second consecutive year for Katie.

Published by Chambers & Partners, the HNW guide recognizes leading wealth advisors around the world. In addition to the individual recognitions, the Stokes Lawrence Estate Planning practice was noted as one of the leading practices in Washington.

To determine the rankings in the guide, the Chambers editorial team researches local practitioners and interviews their peers and clients to garner feedback about a firm’s practice and its attorneys.

Doug was noted as being “a star name” in estate planning. One individual described him as being “one of the all-time great planners on the West Coast.” He was lauded for his vast experience dealing with estate planning and probate matters.

RoseMary was recognized for her estate and tax planning practice, particularly her work on charitable matters and with nonprofit organizations. Several commentators noted her strong technical skills and her awareness of the political and legislative climate.

Katie was described by a peer lawyer as “an up-and-comer who is a solid lawyer.” She was noted for her work with clients across the Pacific Northwest, providing comprehensive advice on estate planning and business succession matters.

The Stokes Lawrence Estate Planning & Administration practice assists individuals and families with their estate planning needs, including drafting core documents, such as a will, power of attorney or health directive, as well as integrating other issues into an estate plan, such as the sale of a business, charitable giving, lifetime gifting, prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, or long-term care.
