Seattle is back and Lether Law Group is here to help

People and businesses around the country continue to deal with the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Nevertheless, there is a sense of hope and anticipation in the air as businesses continue to reopen and people have begun to come together again.  The Lether Law Group family had a chance to experience this firsthand last week when we joined hundreds of Seattleites and hockey fans to celebrate the expansion draft for the inaugural season of the Seattle Kraken NHL team.

The event occurred in front of our offices on Lake Union and gave us all a chance to get on the water and celebrate with our friends and neighbors.  We had a great time swimming, cruising the lake, and interacting with those around as we all soaked in the sun and the experience of this lifetime event.

It was wonderful to see the City of Seattle and hockey fans come together to celebrate this new hockey franchise. Lether Law Group could not be more excited to watch and cheer on the Seattle Kraken in the months ahead.  We also look forward to celebrating the return of normalcy with all of you.  As we have been before and throughout the pandemic, we at Lether Law Group stand ready to help navigate any legal issues you may face and to celebrate the victories with you.  Go Kraken!

Happy 4th of July

Happy fully opened USA! We are excited to to get our lives back to normal and we hope you take the opportunity to celebrate this holiday weekend. We know you will appreciate our independence this year more than ever.

In observation of the holiday our offices will be closed July 5th.

Fresh Faces

Lether Law Group is happy to announce the addition of two new associate attorneys to the firm.  Welcome to the team Maria Hull and John Isaacson.

 

Maria attended the University of Texas, where she earned a degree in Social Work. After working as a social worker in the private and public sectors, she went back to school to pursue her Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law . During law school, Maria earned her transactional law certificate, which propelled her into an in-house corporate role for an energy company in Houston.  After relocating to Seattle, Maria joined the Lether Law Group and is a member of the Board of Directors at a local nonprofit.  Maria spends her free time playing golf with her husband.

 

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, John spent his undergrad years in the State of Texas before moving to Spokane, Washington to attend law school at Gonzaga. Although he initially planned to return to the heat and sunshine, he enjoyed his time in Washington far more than he expected to and feels lucky to be able to call it home for the foreseeable future. After law school, John worked with Pierce County’s Department of Assigned Counsel as a Public Defender before deciding to transition to the life of private practice. He enjoys fishing, painting, cooking, and admittedly more than a few Netflix shows.
