Is Your Living Trust Living Up to Your Expectations?

Tim Burkart

As a professional, I not only endeavor to provide the highest quality service to my clients, but I also try to give back to my community by working on legislation and serving various professional and charitable organizations. I believe that estate planning is about people - it is planning for yourself and those people and organizations you care about. Most of my estate planning work is done on a fixed fee basis and I do not charge for the initial meeting with a client. I am an owner with the firm of Garvey Schubert Barer in Seattle, Washington, where my practice focuses on the areas of estate planning and estate and trust administration, and am a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. Currently, I serve as the Director of the Probate Council of the Executive Committee of the Real Property Probate and Trust Section of the Washington State Bar Association where I am involved in proposing legislation to help the citizens of our state; I serves on the University of Washington Planned Giving Board, the Estate and Gift Tax Committee of the Washington State Bar Association and am a member of the Seattle Estate Planning Council. I am listed in the 2008 edition of Best Lawyers in America for trusts and estates, was named a Super Lawyer in Washington Law & Politics Magazine for 2006 and 2007, and was named a Five Star: Best in Client Satisfaction Wealth Manager for 2007 by Seattle Magazine.
