Carmichael Clark, P.S. (formerly Zender Thurston, P.S.) is excited that our law firm marks its 100 year anniversary this year! We began in 1914 when Ralph B. LeCocq opened his law practice in Lynden, WA. Mr. LeCocq was joined by Einar Simonarson in 1936, and the two men practiced in Lynden together the rest of their careers. Pete Visser joined the firm in 1974, and still practices with us today as “of counsel” in Lynden. We opened our office in Bellingham, WA, in the late 1970s and moved to our current location in 1992.
The firm has gone through changes over the course of its 100 year history. In recent years several longtime partners have retired from the practice of law. Other well-respected lawyers have joined the firm. With these changes, we have decided to change our name to more accurately reflect our current identity. But we remain committed to the same values that have always driven us: to effectively and efficiently help you meet your legal needs.
Thank you for your business and your support. We look forward to continuing to serve you and all of our clients in Whatcom County and greater Northwest Washington with the same tradition of excellence you have come to expect. And we look forward to our next 100 years of service.
