Phone:  (206) 367-6962


Lakeview Law provides legal services in estate planning, probate, family law, and civil litigation and disputes using dedicated advocacy and, whenever possible, alternative methods of dispute resolution to avoid the expense of court action.

Attorney Carrie Kovacevich provides clients with advice and representation based on a complete understanding of the issues, the client’s goals, and the legal solutions available.

Effective advocacy includes careful preparation and tenacious representation in negotiations and in court.  Effective advocacy can also be accomplished using alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as collaborative law, mediation, and arbitration.

Initial Consultation.  Lakeview Law offers an affordable initial consultation that is highly informative and provides clients with a solid understanding of their rights and options available for proceeding with their legal issues.

Estate Planning.  Whether you are single, married, young parents, or divorced and never had a will or want to update your existing estate planning documents, Lakeview Law can prepare an estate plan to ensure that your children and other loved ones are properly cared for and that your estate is distributed to the individuals and/or charities that you select.

Powers of Attorney.  Everyone should have a power of attorney for health care and financial decisions, even if you are married.  Lakeview Law can explain how these documents work and tailor them to your circumstances.  If you are named as an Agent or Attorney-in-Fact, you need to understand the scope of your responsibilities, record keeping requirements, as well as managing the activities of family members and friends.

Probate.  Probate clients need assistance with navigating what can be a very easy and inexpensive process or one that can become complicated.  Probate issues include questions about whether filing a probate action is required, inheritance rights, the validity of a Will, and whether the Executor or Personal Representative should serve in that capacity.

Family Law.  If you are seeking a divorce or ending a committed intimate relationship, with or without children, are seeking maintenance (alimony), want to modify or enforce your Child Support Order or Parenting Plan, Lakeview Law provides extraordinary service to clients at reasonable rates.  Find out how a carefully worded Parenting Plan and Child Support Order can reduce conflict.

Civil Litigation.  Receiving a letter from an attorney or being served with a Complaint or Petition can be disturbing and disruptive.  Do you think that you need to file a lawsuit to address an issue?  Contact Lakeview Law to have an attorney help you assess your options and navigate the case to resolution.

Mediation, Arbitration, Collaborative Law.  Learn about how these methods of dispute resolution can save you time and money.

Unbundled Legal Services.  If you cannot afford to hire an attorney for complete representation, you may be able to take advantage of “unbundled legal services,” where an attorney assists you with specific projects, saving you a significant amount of money.
