We Help Individuals, Families and Businesses.


To our clients, friends and colleagues:

During these past months, we’ve navigated a time in modern history unlike any other. We want to assure you that Speidel Bentsen LLP remains fully available to serve you. We are open during normal office hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Being mindful of our community’s health and safety, we are taking appropriate measures to protect you and our staff. We are limiting our office appointments to one family at a time and sanitizing between appointments. We wear masks when we meet with clients, and respectfully request that our clients do likewise, if they are able, in accordance with Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 Proclamations.

We also offer telephone and video conferencing for those who prefer not to meet in person. Just mention this when you call or email.

We look forward to assisting you with your legal needs.

Thank you and take care.
