"I enjoy helping my clients ensure that they can pass on as much of their legacy as possible."
Although Daelyn comes from a family of educators, it was her desire to help and serve on an individual basis, which led her to the law. This desire was magnified through her experience at the Gonzaga University Legal Assistance Program, where she helped a terminally ill client draft a Will. Helping the client not only gave Daelyn a defined purpose, but also provided her with a roadmap as to how she was going to help others in the future.
Daelyn's approach is individualized. Different families have different needs, and striking a balance between preservation and protection can be difficult and emotional. To ease an otherwise trying process, Daelyn takes an education-centered approach to every situation, ultimately allowing her clients and their families to make informed, cognizant decisions.
Obtaining her LLM at the University of Denver, provides Daelyn with additional tools to help her clients successfully execute their wishes while limiting possible tax ramifications. This way, Daelyn is able to help her clients ensure that their assets and legacy are preserved.
Admitted to practice before the courts of Washington and the Federal Tax Court, Daelyn is also an active participant in the Washington Women Lawyers, the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association, and the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation. She is also a frequent speaker on current tax-related issues and changes in the law.
When not helping her clients, Daelyn enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. She and her family enjoy participating in community events and are slowly but surely renovating their 100-year-old house.
