Nick Pleasants focuses on helping families transfer their wealth to the next generation. He handles estate planning, probate, trust administration, guardianship/conservatorship, and estate dispute matters.
After leaving his native Seattle to attend Columbia University in New York City, Nick returned home to attend the University of Washington School of Law. In law school, Nick led the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association while earning his J.D. and an LL.M. in Taxation.
Nick has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. He spent summers mowing lawns and helping neighbors run their yard sales with a digital cash register. In high school, he managed the student store, and earned spending money tutoring and grading math worksheets. As college approached, he took an interest in his father’s law firm, and worked as a file clerk and answered phones. After law school, he spent four years practicing law with his father, gaining civil litigation experience. When his father retired, it was the perfect opportunity to launch his own business—a law firm.
Nick is an active member at Chinese Southern Baptist Church in Seattle’s International District, serving as a Trustee and Outreach Leader. He also enjoys the flexibility to travel and work remotely. You might find him taking a conference call from a beach in Singapore, closing a deal in line at Disneyland, or onboarding a new client from the ski lift at Steven’s Pass. Just don’t interrupt him while he’s sweeping for his curling team.
