Located in West Seattle the de Vrieze | Carney PLLC attorneys provide advice in the areas of Wills, Trusts, Probate, Real Estate and Elder Law.

Heather de Vrieze, Elizabeth Carney and Kailei Feeney, attorneys, together with their paralegal Marianne Had and Office Manager, Francine Stroud form the team at de Vrieze | Carney, dedicated to serving our clients efficiently and personally, one issue at a time.


Washington State has passed a new “uniform” power of attorney act that took effect January 1st.
The new law does not invalidate old powers of attorney, but has allowed us to streamline our documents.
Under the new law, there are timelines for banks, brokers and 3rd parties to accept a power of attorney.
The new law also clearly spells out the duties of an agent acting under a power of attorney and provides more details on the agent’s authority.

A new year is often a good time to review your existing estate planning documents and ensure that they still meet your needs. If you would like to talk about your powers of attorney, or notice something else in your estate plan that warrants a meeting, we look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can help.

Merry Christmas! de Vrieze | Carney and the White House are getting decked out for the holiday season.

Elderly Couple Wins Temporary Reprieve From Eviction

A sad story of trusting too much and not seeking legal advice. The pitfalls of signing signing over your house while you are alive cannot be overstated. Please seek appropriate attorney advice when you are considering any title changes. An elderly couple thrust into the public spotlight when word spread about their pending eviction from the house they owned for half a century caught a break this week when a judge gave them a 60-day reprieve.

When the Power of Attorney Lacks Power

A good reminder on the importance of Powers of Attorney, and how important it can be to have just the right language in your document.
If you don't have one, or haven't updated yours in a while, give us a call. We can help make sure you are doing everything possible to protect yourself. If a financial institution won’t accept the document, don’t take no for an answer

Prince's sister says he had no known will

Celebrities aren't the only ones who can leave a mess when they die without a Will.
Be smarter than the celebrities and keep your will and estate plan current so no matter what happens to you, your loved ones will be taken care of. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prince's sister says musician had no known will, files paperwork to be appointed executor.

Happy Spring from the White House.

[12/16/15]   FRAUD ALERT!!!
A word of warning of particular interest to elders and their family or friends. There is an active scam in Washington regarding jury duty and fraudulent claims that a warrant has been issued: "Individuals who claim to be county law enforcement officers or court staff accuse the residents of failure to respond to a jury summons. They often demand immediate payment of a fine to avoid issuance of an arrest warrant." Don't fall for it!! Write down all the information they provide and Call 911 immediately.

December already, and here at the White House we are getting into the holiday spirit. Promised yourself you'd get your will done this year? There is still time.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING from de Vrieze | Carney PLLC.
Thursday and Friday our offices will be closed to celebrate the holiday.
