Seattle Real Estate Lawyer

Focused Solutions

Dickson Frohlich has been serving businesses and individuals in the Puget Sound area for more than 25 years. With over 100 years of combined legal experience across a broad spectrum of legal disciplines, our law practice is primarily focused on protecting your financial future.

Our team of lawyers finds solutions that guard your financial well-being during real estate transactions, business dealings, future planning through estate & probate issues, and even family law concerns.



  • Every attorney at Dickson Frohlich boasts an impressive background and unique skill set. No matter the type of legal services you need, we can offer an exceptional advocate to handle your needs.
  • At Dickson Frohlich, our attorneys take their role as “counselors” seriously. When you work with Dickson Frohlich, you not only have attorneys who can navigate the complexities of Washington’s real estate law, you have an ally who will interpret and explain your challenges and the best path forward for your case.
  • We have decades of experience solving problems for clients. We know the law, and we have a track record that proves it.



Real estate is a person’s most-valuable investment, and it deserves protecting. Our firm has assembled aggressive, but efficient, real estate lawyers who are skilled at defending our client’s property rights. Though we can fight, we know that real estate law matters don’t always require litigation. Thus, our firm also provides transaction services for both buyers and sellers of real estate. Whether it’s commercial or residential property we’ve represented thousands of individuals throughout the Seattle and Tacoma area.


When a loved one passes away, we are left with more than our memories of them—we are left with their property. Probate law governs the process of how a deceased individual’s property is distributed to his or her heirs. At Dickson Frohlich, we’re experts in the probate law process and have represented countless executors and executrixes (personal representatives) in successfully administering the estates of their deceased love ones.


Planning for one’s eventual death is difficult. However hard it may be; however, it is critical that every adult have a will or other means to control the way in which their property and personal assets are distributed after they have died. Our estate planning and probate law department can assist you in preparing all the necessary documents to help your loved ones distribute your property how you choose.


The world of business can be complex—and in a world of increasing complexity, you need a law firm who’s seen it all. For over four decades, businesses have relied on Dickson Frohlich’s business law experience and expertise to solve their most-difficult challenges. The attorneys of Dickson Frohlich are seasoned business law professionals who know that the key to effective legal representation is more than simply winning in court but doing so efficiently.

Dickson Frohlich is a law firm specifically designed to be nimble, able to adapt to our clients’ unique needs. This is because every client is unique. When you need an attorney, you’re almost certainly facing a problem you need to have fixed. That’s what we do at Dickson Frohlich. We don’t see our clients as a number, but as individuals.

Our results speak for themselves, but we want to hear from you. We offer free consultations to help you better understand the best path forward for your legal situation. Contact us today to learn more.


The Seattle real estate market and the laws that govern it are not fixed. The best attorneys know that to best serve clients they need to constantly be learning about the legal landscape and adapting to changes.

Unlike other law firms, we can point to specific examples of our attorneys’ expertise and authority. For example, Tom Dickson has authored several works about real estate law in Seattle, and Rob Dickson teaches real estate litigation at the Seattle University School of Law. Rhiannon Funke has successfully litigated over 500 bench trials and over 1,000 motions in her time representing large corporate clients.


We focus primarily on Real Estate Law (including Foreclosure Prevention), Business Law (including formations), Probates, and Construction Law.  Read more.

    - Jeremy H.

    I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate this firm! These guys helped me through one of the most challenging legal situations I’ve faced in my life. Their skill and expertise literally saved my business. I’ve dealt with other counsel in the past but the Dickson firm was by far the most competent and tactful counsel I’ve ever received. I would recommend this group to anyone!
