While 110 years is a long time, nothing about our firm is old-fashioned.

About Paine Hamblen

We are proud of our firm’s legacy that began over 110 years ago. As one of the leading firms serving Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, we have offices in Spokane and  the Tri-Cities.

We set a high standard of quality service, while offering a broad range of practice areas that meet the diverse needs of all our clients, whether they be individuals or Fortune 1000 companies. Our goal is to develop long-term client relationships, based on hard work, trust and solid results. We are committed to providing quality legal services to our clients, while maintaining a dynamic and satisfying work environment, and encouraging the professional and personal growth of the individuals in the firm.

In this day of advancing technology and resources, we are able to maintain a local presence, while at the same time provide coordinated legal services to our regional, national and international clients of all sizes.
