Attorney Jeff Mirsepasy
In law school, I can remember sitting in class, thinking about my future. Why was I in law school? What did I want to do with my degree? I remember thinking that I wanted a neighborhood law office serving my neighbors and taking on their legal issues. For the first 15 years, I was 42 floors high in downtown Seattle. It was a great view, but not accessible and too far removed from my neighbors.
Here, some 25 years after those thoughts in law school, and I am proud to say I have been practicing in my street-level, easily-located West Seattle law office for over 10 years! My clients love the fact that parking is easy, and free. And I am available for them without the physical hurdles of the large firms. I do not believe in having to talk with three people in order to reach the person I am calling. My clients call and I answer the phone; when they email, I read and respond.
Service to my clients is my number one priority.
