Legal Solutions For Agricultural Interests In Washington

Firm Overview

Scenic Yakima, Washington, is located in South Central Washington at the confluence of the Naches and Yakima Rivers. Yakima is the gateway to the Yakima Valley in one direction and the Cascade Mountains in the other. Yakima County ranks first in the United States in the number of all fruit trees. Yakima County agriculturists produce more apples, mint, winter pears, and hops than any other county. Additional agricultural products of importance in the area include peaches, apricots, cherries, beef, wheat and award winning wines.

The Yakima, Washington, law firm of Carlson Boyd, PLLC, appreciates the agricultural diversity of the region, and has provided timely legal advice and cost-effective solutions to Washington families and businesses for years. Whether handling complex litigation under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act ("PACA") or a straightforward real estate transaction, our lawyers provide clients with outstanding legal advice, personalized representation, and unsurpassed results. Built on the principles of integrity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, our law firm focuses on the needs of our agricultural clients, who have businesses involving the production and processing of tree fruits, hops, mint, vegetables, livestock, dairy and wine.

The Carlson Boyd Difference

Carlson Boyd's continued pledge to deliver the highest quality legal services begins with our recognition of a lawyer's multi-faceted role as adviser, counselor, and advocate. We understand that the most aggressive, expensive, and time-consuming litigation strategy may not always be the best solution for each client. Not surprisingly, we have learned that most clients prefer to spend less money on legal services than spend more pursuing a win-at-all-costs strategy. In every situation, therefore, we seek to identify our client's primary objective, design a solution to fit that objective, and implement that solution in the most efficient, effective manner possible. We do this by applying the right combination of creativity, innovation, and commitment to each case that comes through our door. Our dedication to quality, understanding of complex litigation, trust and respect have forged long-standing relationships with clients throughout South Central Washington and beyond.
