Geoffrey G. Jones is a managing partner at the law firm of Newton Kight L.L.P.  Geoff grew up in Edmonds, Washington, and went to college at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. He has been practicing law since 1989 after he graduated as a member of Order of the Coif from the University of Oregon School of Law.  Geoff began his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General for the Washington State Attorney General’s office in Olympia, where he represented several state agencies in civil matters, including the Department of Employment Security, the Department of General Administration, and the Department of Information Systems.

Geoff joined his father, Bruce Jones, at Newton Kight L.L.P. in 1992. His various areas of practice at the firm include:

  • Estate Planning (including Wills, Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, and  Health Care Directives);
  • Probates;
  • Estate and Trust Administration; and
  • Guardianships

Geoff also serves as a Guardian Ad Litem for minor settlement matters in Snohomish and Skagit Counties; he is on the panel of arbitrators for civil disputes for Snohomish County Mandatory Arbitration; and is available for mediation for disputes in the areas of law listed above. Geoff is frequently called upon to speak at Continuing Legal Education seminars on the topics of Probate, Estate Planning and Elder Law, and has written extensively on these subjects.

During his free time, Geoff enjoys spending time watching old movies and driving fast cars – primarily Ford Mustangs. His wife, Kerry, does her best to tame Geoff, their rambunctious son, Michael, and their precocious daughter, Hannah.
