Spokane-based McBurns Law Office PLLC has moved to a larger space in the Flour Mill, at 621 W. Mallon, from office space downtown at 221 N. Wall and has changed its name to Evergreen Elder Law PLLC, says Holland McBurns, founder and managing partner.
McBurns says the firm moved because it’s growing and needed more room to expand, along with extra parking, and because she liked the historic location.
“I felt my seniors would like the Flour Mill, which they really do,” she says. “They often go up to Clinkerdagger (a restaurant in the Flour Mill) after we meet.”
She says the senior population is living longer and has greater need for legal services.
The firm rebranded because the old name put too much emphasis on her, says McBurns.
“We’re a team, and I want it to be more of a team effort,” she says of the name change.
Particularly, she chose the term Evergreen because it represented the areas the firm serves well—Eastern Washington, including the Tri-Cities and some of Central Washington, not just Spokane, she says.
Both the move and rebranding occurred Dec. 1, she says.
Evergreen Elder Law PLLC specializes in handling issues specific to seniors, such as guardianships, wills and trusts, special needs planning, probate and trust administration, Medicaid, and long-term care planning. The firm employs four people, including one attorney, and is looking to hire a second.
Although McBurns declines to provide revenue figures, she expects its revenue to double this year.
She says her law firm takes a holistic approach to client care, meaning care that goes beyond legal matters. For example, if she has a client experiencing grief, she would refer them to a grief counselor she knows, she says.
“Mental health, health issues, housing issues … I want to make sure that we don’t just help them with their legal problem, because they’re all interconnected. I want to make sure they’re getting a real holistic approach to all their needs,” she says.
McBurns earned her law degree from Gonzaga University in 2000. McBurns Law Office opened in 2001. The firm occupied 1,100 square-feet of space at its former location and now leases 1,800 square feet of floor space in the Flour Mill.
