About Theresa A. Goetz
Meet Theresa Goetz Knapp, an accomplished transactional and litigation attorney with more than 30 years’ experience.
I have been fortunate to be able to practice law in the Pacific Northwest as I was born and raised in Seattle, attended Washington State University for undergraduate school and I graduated from the University of Washington School of Law. My experiences as a lawyer have given me the knowledge and experience to help all my clients with their legal issues, whether it is a real estate matter, forming a limited liability company and drafting its operational documents, to preparing an employment or independent contractor agreement setting forth the rights and obligations of an employer, employee or independent contractor or giving general employment law advice.
Being proactive in giving advice to clients is essential to anticipating issues that might develop and addressing those issues at the beginning. I strive to be proactive for the benefit of my clients.
I also work with legitimately disadvantaged businesses, regardless of the disadvantage (that is, whether it be based on sex, race, sexual orientation, economics, or so forth) to qualify the businesses for certification pursuant to state/federal or private certification programs.
Paid in full! I want to thank you again for your guiding hand through all of this. I had no idea it would end up being a stranger than fiction experience but was sure glad we had you on our side!

Comment from client on WBE/DBE Certification
I chose Theresa to represent me after interviewing and paying for opinions from three other law firms regarding an employment agreement. I had just started a new CPA practice, it was year-end, my business and personal life was extremely busy and the potential legal obstacles were overwhelming. With Theresa's assistance, I was able to focus all of my attention on building my new business, while she tactfully worked behind the scene to quickly and quietly reduce my exposure to costly litigation. Her work exceeded all of my expectations. I have since referred many of my clients to her and received nothing but praise. She does awesome work and is always available to work through issues by telephone or e-mail and will reduce the amount of worrying and uncertainty that you may experience in your case.
