Who We Are 2017-07-06T18:26:33+00:00

Frank Selden

Founder and Owner

My amazing wife Barbara and I have a blended family of 6 children and 7 grand children. I sometimes disappear for walks with our golden-doodles Loki and  or look for errant drives on a golf course.

Frank Selden Law:

Estate Planning & Asset Protection Specialist

Less clients, better service. Most of my clients are a lot like me: entrepreneurial, in charge of their businesses and futures, dynamic, give a high priority to values such as integrity and hard work. They want focused attention when they need it but otherwise just like to say “Hi” now and then.

My goal is to create the premier estate planning and asset protection legal practice on the Eastside of Washington State.  To achieve that, our legal products must adhere to three key criteria for every client:

  1. be fully understood by the client
  2. accomplish the client’s goals, and
  3. work for other professionals to help my clients when they need it.

SOLUTION FOCUSED LEGAL THINKING

My banking, insurance and securities background led to a natural progression into estate and asset protection law. I periodically would have to tell a client “I understand what you want to do but your legal documents don’t allow us to do that.”

Sometimes people wasted thousands of dollars on products that did not allow other professionals to help the clients in creating the client’s desires. I do not want to create such products.

Frank has that golden combination of being both really good at what he does, and straight up honest. You’ll know from the minute you start working with him that you’re in good hands.

Frank explains the most complicated of estate planning issues, including those with estate tax implications, in clear but comprehensive terms. He is clearly an expert in his practice areas. He also puts clients and fellow attorneys at ease and I’ve never been hesitant to ask him what I perceived may be a silly question but which he quickly and generously responded to.

His insights on corporate structure, hiring employees, and the implications of owning a corporation on my estate plan were beyond valuable. I would recommend Frank to anyone – current and potential business owners in particular. He is reliable, trustworthy, and an expert in his field.
