HIP wishes Mark Albertson a fond farewell

Mark Albertson recently left the practice of law and accepted a position as a Trust and Estate Planning Officer.  This is a great opportunity for Mark where he will teach estate planning workshops and consult with financial advisors.  Mark has been a great leader in the estate planning field for many years and will continue to be a great resource to the attorneys at HIP Law.  With this change, Patrick Hanis will lead the Estate Planning department, with fellow attorneys Brian Hanis and Dennis Shanlian.  We expect the transition to be as seamless as possible.  Mark left with these words, "It is with mixed emotions that I go.  I have enjoyed working with you and all of my clients, and I will miss you all.  Additionally, Hanis Irvine Prothero has been a wonderful place to work.  The attorneys here are incredibly competent and caring people with the highest ethical standards.  I will miss working with everyone here."  We look forward to continuing to assist you with your Estate Planning, Probate, or other legal needs.  Please contact Patrick Hanis or his assistant, Steven Bash, with any questions.

Mark Prothero presents at 3rd Annual Boy Scout Law Merit Badge event.

June 21, 2013 - Hanis Irvine Prothero partner Mark Prothero joined a group of criminal justice professionals in presenting at the 3rd Annual Boy Scout Law Merit Badge event.  The day-long event was held at the Maleng Regional Justice Center and Kent Commons.  Boy Scouts from throughout the area heard from a broad spectrum of people involved in all aspects of the United States criminal justice system to help earn their merit badges.  Other presenters included Kent Police officers, court administrators, investigators, attorneys John Casey, Kevin Jussell, Steven Weier, and King County Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Rich Anderson.  The boy scouts also heard from several King County Superior Court judges, including Brian Gain, LeRoy McCullough, James Cayce, Andrea Darvas, Carol Shapira, Suzanne Parisien, and Bill Bowman.  Mark’s presentation was entitled “Criminal Justice: Defending the Accused” examining our constitutional rights from the perspective of a defense lawyer. The event was organized by attorney Jennifer Rydberg, who said it was “…the third and best law merit badge event, a whopping success.”
