Personal Statement

Megan Sennett is part of Wolff, Hislop & Crockett’s Transaction and Estate Planning team.  Her practice focuses on helping business owners, families, and individuals develop effective strategies for their asset management.  Megan knows the importance of being proactive, rather than reactive, and aims to eliminate potential challenges upfront.  She wants her clients to be part of a team effort with their attorney to reach their objectives, but knows when to advocate on their behalf.  Megan strives to maximize the value and obtain favorable results for her clients in their transactions.

Background

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Megan graduated from the University of Arizona (Bear Down!) and decided to move north to attend Gonzaga Law School.  As a third generation attorney, Megan knew early on that she wanted to practice law.  During her time at Gonzaga, she interned with the US Attorney’s Office and the Spokane County Prosecutor’s Office, and was actively involved in the Gonzaga Law community.  Prior to joining WHC, Megan practiced family law, which instilled in her the commitment to achieving her client’s goal, no matter how big or small.

When she is not in the office, Megan enjoys spending time with her husband and exploring the outdoor adventures the Northwest has to offer.
