William English Middlie Line ABOUT US

At the age of 67, after nearly 31 years of practicing law and/or accounting, I am winding down my law practice from being a trial lawyer and litigator to more of an emphasis on estate planning. I have tried or litigated cases in numerous courts including US. Tax Court, US Immigration Court, US Federal Court, State of Alaska Supreme Court, State of Alaska Probate Court, US. Bankruptcy Court, and numerous Superior and District Courts across Alaska where divorce cases, personal injury cases, commercial litigation, and criminal cases have been tried. A common thread in all these cases involves the analysis and disclosure of assets and liabilities, income statements, retirement accounts, insurance policies, mortgages and personal property assets from the parties involved. In sum, assets and liabilities, and financial assets that comprise an estate plan.

Ever since I drafted my first Will in 1992, and shortly thereafter my first Revocable Living Trust, and I have had a steady stream of estate planning and probate matters in my career as an attorney.

I am finished with the contentious issues litigated in the above courts, but would like to continue the practice of law in a less contentious way. And lighten the case load. I believe I can give a client good value for a revocable living trust based estate plan and guide them thru the process.
