My experience spans over 35 years, serving customers on both the public and private side of the counter.  When I left Skagit County my goal was to provide a service to clients with their interests and pocket book in mind, hard to believe that was 16 years ago.  Too often consultants don’t perform timely or keep sending you bills with no resolution or end in sight.  We don’t do that!

We handle all aspects of permitting especially the tough ones and are often retained by others to resolve complex code violations throughout the NW region of Washington State.  We now primarily work in San Juan County.

What sets us apart?  We do most of our work in house which allows us to deliver documents timely and accommodate urgencies.
