Bainbridge Island Insurance Law Lawyer
Ms. Masters devotes a substantial part of her time to non-profit and pro bono public service. She is currently chair of the Equal Justice Coalition (www.ejc.org), a position she moved into after completing seven years of service on the Board of Trustees of the Legal Foundation of Washington (www.legalfoundation.org), the non-profit created by the Washington Supreme Court to support civil legal aid across the state. She also serves as a community volunteer for the Coalition Ending Gender Based Violence (www.EndGV.org), a role that she has held since completing six years of service on its board. She previously served on the board and as a volunteer for New Beginnings, one of the first domestic violence advocacy organizations in Washington. In addition, Ms. Masters has provided pro bono legal services in the immigration arena for nonprofit organizations in Washington and Texas.
Ms. Masters was born in Austin, Texas, gradually migrating north and west to Colorado, and then to Washington. She is quite pleased that her immediate family followed her to Washington - which makes visits much more frequent. Ms. Masters met her husband Ken Masters (founding partner of MLG) when she moved to Washington for law school. For years, they talked about working together. And after seven years, they still agree that it was a great idea!

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
Want to check lawyer discipline?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
- Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
- Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
- Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
