Snure Law Office and CSD Attorneys At Law Are Associating

CSD Attorneys at Law and Snure Law Office are pleased to announce that attorney Brian Snure will become of counsel to CSD Law as part of a formal association of the two firms. This is a natural progression of over 30 years of professional collaboration between lawyers in CSD Law and Snure Law.

“For many years, Snure Law and our firm have worked collaboratively on issues important to the fire service. We welcome and value Brian’s expertise and commitment,” said Richard Davis, one of the founding members of CSD Law.

Now, from offices in Bellingham and Des Moines, the combined team of lawyers will continue to provide responsive, professional, and solution-driven services for government and business clients throughout Washington. “Our firms have worked together with the Washington Fire Commissioners Association to share best practices and serve the interest of the fire service community for decades. We share the common values of a client-centered approach,” said Brian Snure.

CSD Law and Snure Law will continue to operate independently, but our clients will now have seamless access to the team of lawyers from both firms, including a Fire/EMS Practice Group currently comprised of Brian Snure, Richard Davis, Matt Paxton, and Aaron Haynes.

In the unlikely event this association of law firms creates a conflict of interest, CSD Law and Snure Law will reach out to clients on a case-by-case basis. Please contact your lawyer at CSD Law or Snure Law for more information.
