A large part of Gavin’s practice focuses on helping families to preserve, manage and transfer their assets and wealth from one generation to the next.  This type of work brings together various financial, legal and tax principles in ways he finds fascinating.  His typical workday includes projects related to wills and trusts, other areas of estate planning and probate, small business planning and working with the firm’s other attorneys on litigation and dispute resolution cases.  Gavin has been interested in this these types of work since he was in school and is thrilled to have a law practice that allows him to help so many people with complex and important areas of their lives.

Gavin has studied and practiced law in Washington State since finishing law school in 2009 at Gonzaga University School of Law in Spokane, Washington. Prior to this, he earned a degree in Accounting, graduating magna cum laude, from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.  Gavin then went on to earn a Masters of Law in Taxation, commonly called a Tax LL.M, from the University of Washington in 2010, which required a year of full-time tax law and related classes. While at UW, he focused on estate planning and business taxation and planning.  That expertise is essential for lawyers intent on helping clients to navigate the complex possibilities of retaining considerable wealth for family or charitable use after the owner has passed away.

In addition to his law practice, Gavin enjoys spending time with his wife and three children and is often found supporting his oldest son in mountain biking, or at track meets or just a playground with the younger two. He also volunteers extensively in various capacities with his church and related community organizations, and Gavin’s various service activities have taken him as far away as Scotland.  When he can squeeze it in, Gavin also enjoys a little snowboarding, water sports, fly fishing and other outdoor activities.
