New law firm partners

Peter W. Goddu and Margaret C. Langlie of Goddu Langlie, Lawyers-Advisors, are pleased to announce that, effective May 1, Kathryn (Katie) C. Loring and Thomas D. Sandstrom will join them as partners and the firm name will change to Goddu Langlie Loring Sandstrom, PLLC.

Peter Goddu and Margaret Langlie established their law firm in 1982 and in 2010 acquired the Friday Harbor law practice of Donald E. Eaton when he was appointed San Juan County Superior Court Judge. Katie Loring and Thomas Sandstrom have practiced in Friday Harbor since 2008 and 2009, respectively, with the Law Offices of Christon C. Skinner, which purchased that practice from John O. Linde when he was appointed San Juan County’s first Superior Court Judge.

“The new firm combines our diverse backgrounds and our collective legal expertise—as well as our mutual commitment to a client-centered practice and common sense approach to the law—to provide a broad range of civil litigation and transactional legal services in the areas of contracts, construction, commercial and business law, estate planning and probate, family law, and real estate and land use,” said Langlie. The office will be located in the space currently occupied by the Skinner firm at 365 E Spring Street phone numbers will remain the same: (360) 378-2181 and (360) 378-2191.
