Having had the need to engage a number of estate attorneys over the years, and having studied law a bit myself, I feel qualified to make these statements. Let me first say, though, that I found Mr. Eddy to be both a gentleman and a gentle man.

For me, he was able to take information given to him through prior documents and only one telephone interview, and apply the applicable law. He created documents that were clear and concise, in easy to read plain English. He understood and captured my true intent the first time, without requiring rework.

I am certain he can do the same for you.

Richard Gierth was my attorney for a car accident where I was rear-ended by someone with no insurance. He was so helpful and easy to work with. He handled everything from getting me reimbursed for my child's new car seat, having my medical bills paid and he got me a great settlement. I would 100% recommend this law firm.

As a fellow lawyer in the community, I have found Richard Gierth to be knowledgeable and compassionate, two of the most important attributes needed to represent people who have been injured by the negligence of another. I highly recommend his services.

I retained Mr. Loren Eddy’s services in August 2014. On 8-8-14, we were in court so I could be made Executor of my father’s estate. Even though he could have published the Notice to Creditors on 8-13-14, he refused because he said he’s superstitious and doesn’t do things like that on the 13th. It was published a week after it should have been. Once the house sold in October, I then moved to Nampa, ID on 10-10-14. On 10-14-14 I was back in Kennewick, WA and met with Mr. Eddy to discuss the plan once he received the check from the home sale. He requested an accounting and the value of the GMC Envoy that I had kept from the estate. He also told me he would send my proposal with the accounting and a waiver form to the other heirs by 11-7-14. On 10-15-14 I emailed him the accounting, and on 10-16-14 I emailed him the value of the Envoy. The house closed on 10-17-14, and the money was supposed to be deposited in an account at Gierth-Eddy. On 10-26-14 I sent Mr. Eddy an email asking him if he received my previous emails, and if he received the check and how much it was. I got no response, so I send another email on 10-31-14. Again, I didn’t receive a response. On 11-6-14, I called and left a message requesting he respond to my questions that were in emails. Nothing. I called again on 11-10-14 and still no response. In my call on 11-14-14, I left a message stating if I didn’t hear from him by 11-17-14 I would find someone else to represent me. My husband and I decided to discontinue his services, and sent him a letter certified mail on 11-17-14 notifying him of this and that I wanted the check sent to me by 12-1-14. Around 2:30pm on 11-17-14 Mr. Eddy finally called, and he commented that he had a draft letter for me to review before sending it to the other heirs. I told him it didn’t matter as I no longer required his services and that the letter he just drafted was supposed to be out no later than 11-7-14 according to the timeline we discussed on 10-14-14. I also told him he’d be receiving a certified letter notifying him of his dismissal in writing. He received the certified letter on 11-19-14.He told me I needed to sign a form saying I was no longer his client and I told him to mail it to me.

After firing Mr. Eddy, my husband looked into what would be required to close the probate on my father’s estate. We discovered that not only was probate not required, which Mr. Eddy failed to convey, but we weren’t required to send an accounting unless the other heirs requested it, which again we were not informed of.

On 12-3-14 I still hadn’t received any form to sign nor had the check arrived. On 12-3-14 Mr. Eddy finally called my husband. During this conversation, Mr. Eddy claimed he had to be dismissed by a judge and could do nothing until then. If this is true, he failed to tell me during our conversation on 11-17-14, instead only stating I needed to sign a form. According to our research, since this is not a criminal case and there are no pending court dates, a judge doesn’t have to get involved. However, if a judge is required to dismiss him, he was required to immediately send me a letter stating that he was required by law to work on my case until dismissed by a judge, which he didn’t do. My husband was polite during the conversation, but Mr. Eddy got confrontational. When my husband notified him we would be pursuing criminal charges against him, he hung up the phone on my husband.
