Justin Avellar, attorney

small businesses, nonprofits,
artists & individuals



I am an entrepreneurial lawyer in Seattle dedicated to helping clients build and plan for the future.


I earned my law degree from the University of Chicago Law School and worked in a top global law firm.


But I found advising real people on legal issues far more rewarding.

Practice Areas

Small Businesses & Startups


You’re the expert in running your business. You shouldn’t have to worry about the business law back end. Hiring a lawyer takes that off your hands and ensures you get it done right. Let me help you with the legal planning, so you can focus on your business and doing what you love.




Turning a great idea for a nonprofit into a fully functioning nonprofit takes a ton of dedication, and also legal knowledge. I work with nonprofits on organizational structure, agreements and general legal advice so the nonprofits can succeed.



Creating and selling your content is challenging and often involves complex laws and agreements. I work together with artists to create easy-to-understand agreements and provide helpful advice in navigating the laws that impact their businesses. I can help you, so you can focus your energy on creativity--not legal issues.




Planning for the future is important, but complex. Working with a lawyer can help simplify things. I can work on your estate plan with you.

Tax Structuring


Understanding tax laws and implications can be extraordinarily difficult and time consuming. I can assist and save you hours of time navigating a maze of tax rules.
