A pair of South Sound practices are joining forces with the merger of Olympia’s Goldstein Law Office PLLC and Puyallup’s Athena Legal Advocates.

The move was announced by Jay A. Goldstein, founder and managing principal of Goldstein Law. The new firm will retain the Goldstein Law Office name and provide a range of legal services, including real estate, land use, environmental and natural resources, business and corporate law, estate planning and probate, and construction law.

“This is a great fit for us, and I’m looking forward to the significant depth and capacity (Athena principal) Teena (Williams) brings to the team,” said Goldstein, who has practiced in the Thurston County area for more than 25 years.

“I’m excited to bring my environmental, natural resources and real estate transaction background to the firm and work with this impressive group of lawyers,” added Williams.

The combined firm will now operate in offices located in both Thurston and Pierce counties.
