Barron Smith Daugert law firm recognized by U.S. News; Megan Lewis joins as estate attorney

Bellingham law firm Barron Smith Daugert’s estate planning attorneys have been recognized by U.S. News as a 2012 “Best Law Firm” for trusts and estates.

Only 30 law firms in Washington were recognized in the category. Barron Smith Daugert is the only firm north of King County to be recognized.

The firm’s estate planning attorneys are J. Bruce Smith, Dennis Williams, Erin Crisman Glass and Megan Lewis.

“The ‘Best Law Firm’ ranking recognizes the excellent work that our attorneys have been doing for years,” Sallye Quinn, Barron Smith Daugert managing partner, said in a March 29 press release. “This recognition demonstrates that clients don’t need to leave Whatcom County for top quality estate planning.”

In addition, Megan Lewis recently joined the firm after practicing for more than two years with the firm of Jeffers, Danielson, Sonn & Aylward in Wenatchee, Wash. Lewis earned a master’s in taxation law and concentrates her practice on estate planning and business transactions.

“We are very pleased to have Megan as a part of our team,” senior attorney J. Bruce Smith said. “Her skills and experience will help us maintain the same responsive service as our practice grows.”
