The Three60 Law Team
Jennifer L. King
Jennifer possesses the right mix of technical expertise, practical knowledge, and a down-to-earth personality to guide you through the complexities of modern estate planning law. While practicing with two large downtown Seattle law firms–Foster Pepper PLLC and Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP—Jennifer noticed that many of her clients wanted to receive the service and expertise offered within a large firm, but in a more intimate setting. That beautifully complemented Jennifer’s desire to enjoy the personal benefits that come with a small-firm environment, so in 2004 Jennifer left big-firm life, and she’s never looked back! At Three60 Law Group, Jennifer and her fellow team members offer tried-and-true, high-level, high-touch planning and administration services, while at the same time providing innovative, up-to-the-minute tools and systems. Among the Three60 values that support our mission, Jennifer is most partial to the “relationships” value. Jennifer firmly believes that authenticity and approachability are at the heart of each client relationship. She recognizes that many are intimidated by the estate planning and estate administration processes, so she takes the time to listen, understand, and explain in a way that gives our clients a sense of comfort and confidence that they are doing what’s best for their family and for themselves. Plus, estate planning isn’t merely planning for your death…if done right, it can be planning for your life as well. Jennifer and our Three60 team approach the planning process from that perspective, we think that makes all the difference.
At the start of her legal career, Diana worked as a public defender for the largest public defense firm in King County. After a move from criminal law to involvement with the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council (WSDDC), Diana joined Curran Law Firm in 2003 to focus on estate planning and probate. In 2008, she moved to the downtown Seattle firm Keller Rohrback LLP, where she continued honing her practice in estate planning.
While helping families through probate, she noticed that many estate plans fail to address the unique elements of the decedent’s life. In fact, most plans seem to address only a portion of the estate, which often leads to unnecessary complications and expense. As a result, part of Diana’s philosophy involves crafting an effective estate plan that brings together all the elements of the client’s life. In 2016, Diana launched Laurel Law, drawing upon her skills as an experienced attorney, board chair, policy analyst, and devoted family member.
At Three60 Law Group, Diana continues to provide her clients with a person-centered style of planning, but with the added benefit of a team approach that is the cornerstone of Three60’s philosophy.
Dave approaches estate planning as a puzzle in which the client’s personal, financial, and tax goals must fit together in a comprehensive plan. In order to fit these pieces together, Dave prioritizes client communication and open discussions about goals and concerns. Only with a complete understanding of a client’s priorities can a plan truly come together.
Dave believes a well-crafted estate plan is understandable, easily implemented, and cares for the client’s beneficiaries, whether they be family, friends, or charities. With experience in estate administration, trust administration, and business transitions, Dave drafts estate plans with an eye towards smooth implementation. With his prior experience as a litigator and insurance coverage attorney, Dave understands the need for a client’s plan to anticipate and mitigate potential disputes.
Prior to joining Three60 Law Group, Dave spent almost seven years with the Seattle firm of Betts, Patterson & Mines. He joined Three60 Law Group in 2020 to provide his clients with the small firm touch we are so proud of here.
Dave lives in Bellevue with his wife and two daughters. When he is not in the office, Dave enjoys skiing, hiking, golf and cycling.
Jack began his legal career working for a plaintiffs’ litigation firm in Seattle where he advocated for his clients’ rights at school and in the workplace. When he transitioned to estate planning he drew from his previous work as a litigator to help his clients create estate plans that are easy to administer, minimize conflict, and reflect their wishes.
Jack demonstrates Three60 Law Group’s holistic approach to estate planning in several ways. Open and honest communication is the best way to create plans that are tailored to each client’s needs, so Jack is careful to actively engage his clients in the planning process. Helping clients plan for their present circumstances, protect their family in the future, and establish their lasting legacy is what draws Jack to this area of practice and is why he completed an advanced degree in Taxation at the University of Washington. Jack knows from his experience with his own family that life can throw many curveballs, and that proper estate planning helps families through those hard times. Jack brings the same level of care and attention to his clients as he did to his own family.
In addition to his work at Three60 Law Group, Jack volunteers at the King County Housing Justice Project. Jack lives in Seattle and spends his free time hiking, climbing, and kayaking in the Pacific Northwest.

The Three60 Canine Ambassadors
We consider our canine ambassadors to be a valued part of our team.
Here at Three60, we are passionate about animal welfare. Pets can provide so much joy and enrichment to our lives. Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats. Sadly, each year approximately 2.7 million animals are not able to find homes and are euthanized (1.2 million dogs and 1.4 million cats).
Annie, Gracie, and Missy, our canine ambassadors, are here to greet you with wagging tails and, occasionally, a friendly “woof” hello.
