One of the oldest existing law firms in Snohomish County, the firm now known as Newton Kight L.L.P. was originally founded by Clifford Newton in 1913, in Everett, Washington. In 1920, he was joined by his brother, Arthur Newton, and they formed the firm of Newton and Newton. Henry Newton, the son of Arthur Newton, joined the practice in 1961. Michael Kight, a friend of Henry’s from undergraduate and law school at the University of Washington, joined the practice in 1967, and it became known as Newton, Newton & Kight. The firm continued to grow and in 1996 became a limited liability partnership known as Newton Kight L.L.P.
Newton Kight has grown over the years but maintains its foundation in multi-generational legal families. There is a tradition of excellence serving greater Snohomish County and beyond, in vast areas of legal prowess. We are able to serve our clients in a wide range of areas of the law, including but not limited to: family law, guardianship, elder law, wills and trusts, estate planning, probate, litigation, personal injury, landlord-tenant issues, business formations and more.

COVID – 19 RESPONSE
To comply with the Governor’s Proclamation 20-25 for the people of Washington to limit their activity to essential activities, including businesses Newton Kight LLP has taken steps to address the call, while continuing to provide quality legal services as we have in our 107 year history.
Our firm remains functioning, however protocols are in place to avoid unnecessary interactions in person. Unfortunately this means limiting in person contact. We encourage clients and other persons transacting business with our firm to employ electronic or telephone communication. When in person contact is necessary, be advised our staff will cleanse the meeting room after each visit.
In particular, in this time of crisis, should a need for estate planning come to mind, be assured our firm has made the necessary adjustments to provide timely contact with those so inclined, including drafting and execution of these documents in a safe yet valid manner. This may include wills or updates to wills, trusts or restatement of trusts, durable power of attorney or other advice concerning the posture of an estate plan which exists.
Even prior to this crisis, we have on occasion traveled to where people are residing in order to achieve the end of timely and competent drafting and execution of documents. We perceive outdoor meetings for signatures may be appropriate in this difficult time.
