About Us

Protecting the Law Since 1978
Crane Dunham PLLC was founded in 1978. We provide a wide range of legal services from our offices in Seattle, Washington where we have been handling civil matters for over 42 years, primarily throughout the Greater Puget Sound and Pacific Northwest.

Why Choose Us?

We take great pride in providing the highest quality of legal service and value the civic contributions our firm members make in our community. We have developed our own focus areas to insure quality representation of our clients.
Our firm lawyers and employees are committed and active volunteers, as we feel a sense of responsibility to give back to the communities which provide our livelihoods. We work on boards and non-profit organizations, are active in our churches, and sit on local municipal boards and committees. We believe the personal satisfaction we obtain from participation in these activities not only adds to the quality of life for our families and communities, but makes us better lawyers.
Underdogs who win refuse to compete by the same standards as their opponents; instead they use an entirely different strategy…

Our Reputation

Crane Dunham PLLC has grown with its clients by handling general civil matters, including litigation when necessary. We represent clients on either an hourly, contingent or flat/fixed fee basis. Many of our clients expect us to handle most of their legal needs. Our clients’ needs may include estate planning, prenuptial agreements, business, real estate and general legal advice, affecting their family in many ways.
The firm and its partners are well respected by their peers, as evidenced by their having for many years maintained an “AV” rating by the legal profession’s private lawyer rating service through Martindale-Hubbell. This rating has two components. The “A” portion indicates they are considered preeminent by their peers in their legal ability. The “V” signifies they are above reproach in their professional ethics. Only a small percentage of the bar receives the coveted AV rating. For you, this means that your legal concerns will be effectively and efficiently handled.
