The associates at Althauser Rayan Abbarno are passionate about serving the Thurston County community – a place they work, play and call home.
Allyson Felt focuses on civil litigation, including contract disputes, estate planning, probate and real property. “I appreciate being able to truly help our clients and make a difference for them during a struggle they are having,” she says. “For me, that is what is most rewarding about it.”
She calls Thurston County home and loves to hike with her dog, a five-year-old Golden Retriever, Henry. She also loves participating in the local sport groups that meet to socialize and get healthy, as well as the “watch parties” for a variety of teams like the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders, though truth be told, she is a Packers fan at heart. She is also a member of the Thurston County Bar Association.
Emily Laz focuses on family law, including divorce, child custody, child support, adoption, domestic violence protection orders and anti-harassment orders. “When families are in need of a family lawyer, they are incredibly stressed out and at a very traumatic point in their lives,” she says. “I like to help them through it. My job is equal parts counselor and attorney and I very much enjoy that.”
Emily loves hiking through Capitol Forest and the waterfront with her dog, a one-year-old Border Collie named Tucker. Allyson and Emily go on doggy playdates with their four-legged friends.
Jakob McGhie’s practice focuses on criminal defense, including felony and misdemeanor criminal defense, firearm rights restoration, traffic infractions and the expungement and sealing of criminal records. “The reason I became a lawyer is because I love the fact that we live in a nation that is ruled by a set of laws and core principles,” he says. “And I see being a criminal defense attorney – defending people who could be wrongly accused – and making sure they receive a strong, thorough and complete defense, as necessary for a functioning democracy.”
He represents the greater Olympia region on the Washington State Bar Association Young Lawyer Committee and is a member of the Thurston County Bar Association. Jake also loves to hike in Capitol Forest and can often be found at Olympic Card and Comics.
