Holland McBurns – Managing Partner

Attorney Holland McBurns began her career in law to give back to her community and help those in need. She grew up in Spokane, earned a BA, Cum Laude, in Women’s Issues from the University of Washington, and a Juris Doctorate, Cum Laude, from Gonzaga School of Law. With her husband, she is now raising three girls in Spokane, along with their two dogs, and three chickens.

Holland opened her firm in 2000 with the goal of providing clients exceptional services using a holistic and team-centered approach. She and the staff at Evergreen Elder Law provide pre-planning and crisis planning for Medicaid and long-term care, special needs planning, estate planning, estate administration, and guardianships. To give back to her community and help people better understand their options, she has authored a book on elder law and estate planning in Washington State. She plans to disseminate them free to the elderly community in the hopes that they will help people as they consider their long-term care and estate planning goals.

Holland has earned many awards for her exceptional work in the Spokane area including the 2017 Top Lawyers featured in Spokane Coeur d’ Alene Living, the 2016-2017 10 Best Attorneys by American Institute of Legal Counsel, the 2016 Client Satisfaction Award from The American Institute of Legal Counsel, and the 2004, VLP award for legal representation of indigent clients. She is certified with the Veterans Administration to practice in issues affecting senior veterans, and is a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the Spokane County Bar Association, the National Association for Elder Law Attorneys, the Washington Association for Elder Law Attorneys, The Elder Counsel, and the National Business Institute.

Travis has been practicing law since 2014 and has lived in the beautiful Spokane area since 2001. He loves hanging out with his family and vacationing in the sun on the fantastic beaches of Hawaii. Throughout the year, you will find him kayaking and hiking in the gorgeous Northwest.

TISHA CLEGG – Legal Assistant

Tisha was raised in Colville, WA and has over 15 years of experience in assisting families through Probate and with Estate Planning. Most of the time, you can find her “cheering on” the Spokane Chiefs at the arena and in the summer she loves to grab her fishing pole and lay back at her favorite fishing hole.


Rose started with Evergreen Elder Law last Spring and enjoys undertaking a variety of office support tasks to maintain the efficiency of day-to-day operations in our office. Rosario loves to binge on Netflix in her spare time and occasionally you will see her playing tennis or other racquet sports. On her weekends, she and her husband like to venture out to new places, exploring where they can.


With over 40 years, of customer service, problem solving and relationship management experience, Cristina comes to our office offering the kind of understanding, support and creativity to resolve your concerns in a compassionate way. Cristina has lived in the Tri-Cities for over 15 years, working with numerous businesses and has built a reputation of honesty, integrity while going the extra mile for her clients.

When not working, Cristina’s favorite past times are making memories with her family (Two daughters and five grandchildren) and friends or taking/teaching dance classes of all sorts. Cristina’s motto in life is “Do what is right, let the consequence follow.”


Julie has resided in the Inland Northwest for about 15 years. She has been a paralegal for 20+ years in a diverse range of practice areas for successful legal teams. She has a special heart for the elderly where her empathy and compassion are a big part of her skills. She has an AA degree in Paralegal Studies and is currently a student at Whitworth University enrolled in the adult continuing education program.
