The Hanis Irvine Prothero Advantage

When you bring your legal matter to Hanis Irvine Prothero, you do so with the confidence that you are working with members of your own community. If you have an issue involving South King County business, government, or property, it would be rare that one or more of our attorneys or staff is not on a first-name basis with the key players and decision-makers. As a result of our deep roots in the community, we can get right to solving your problem, while an attorney from Seattle or Bellevue would still be trying to figure out who Kent Kangley is. Your money will go for real legal work, and not to educate some attorney in a Bellevue or Seattle skyscraper. And . . . if you're a business or government in South King County, business and tax dollars spent on legal services at Hanis Irvine Prothero will stay in your community, rather than travel up I-5 and I-405 to be spent in your competitors' businesses in Seattle and on the Eastside.

The Hanis Irvine Prothero Pledge

The attorneys and support staff at Hanis Irvine Prothero are driven to achieve client satisfaction. In handling any matter, we will address the entirety of our clients' needs competently, aggressively, and with complete confidentiality. At the outset of every matter, we strive to offer an accurate and honest assessment of the likelihood of success. We believe strongly in presenting all of the information clients need to weigh the benefits to be gained in pursuit of any legal action. Our goal is to help resolve the clients' legal challenges with as little financial and emotional turmoil as possible. We will advise you of your options and offer our recommendations, but most importantly, we will act with respect to your needs and choices. As a full service law firm, our attorneys are usually able to serve all the needs of our clients. In those rare cases where a client's needs fall outside of our areas of expertise, we will gladly refer that client to another attorney who can help the client in that particular area of the law.
