The summer of 2018 has brought a lot of exciting changes for Lucent Law, PLLC. One of those changes is we have added Janean Vee Phillips to our legal team as an Associate Attorney. Janean specializes in trial litigation and her practice focuses on helping individuals, families and small businesses protect the assets they own. Janean graduated from Gonzaga University School of Law in 2001. She received top honors in legal research and writing and the Uniform Commercial Code.
For five years, Ms. Phillips worked in private practice negotiating and litigating construction, landlord-tenant and family law matters. Subsequently, she chose to enter public service in 2007 with the Spokane City Prosecutor’s Office. The ten years she spent with the Spokane City Prosecutor’s Office provided her with ample experience in criminal and municipal law. This also gave her many opportunities to sharpen her litigation skills in settlement negotiation, motions and trial practice. Janean is a member of the Washington Association of Municipal Lawyers, Spokane County Bar Association and the Washington State Bar Association.
Ms. Phillips was born and currently resides in Spokane with her husband of twenty years and two children. In her spare time, you may find her adventuring in the outdoors with her family. She is also an accomplished painter and enjoys displaying her art at local venues. Janean has her paintings on display for the next two months at The Spokane County Bar Association’s main office and she will give part of her sales to the Volunteer Lawyers Program.
As we continue to move full-speed ahead in combining the firms of Lucent Law, PLLC and Hennessey & Edwards, PS, we look forward to having Janean’s valuable experience while she works side-by-side with Brett and Spencer to ensure the legacy of great service and practical legal counsel that the clients of both firms have always experienced.
