She joined the firm in July 2005, and has more than 30 years of legal experience working in the areas of class action, employment, trust and estate, and commercial litigation.
Wendy is also a Commissioner and Executive Committee Member on the King County Rural Forest Commission. The King County Rural Forest Commission is an advisory group of 13 volunteer members, appointed by the King County Executive, who represent a variety of rural forest interests and advise the County on policies and programs affecting rural forests.
Wendy and her husband, Ben Davis, also manage their family forest consisting of 157 acres. Years ago, Wendy attended the WSU Forestry Extension Coached Planning course; and subsequently wrote and secured approval of their stewardship plan; applied for and secured PBRS status for 70 acres of their land; applied for and secured a grant though King Conservation District for invasive species control and interplanting on 40 acres of their land; and they host 1-2 WSU Extension Forestry Coached Planning Fields Days each year.
Wendy and her husband take an active role in the management of their family forest. They are in their forest nearly every weekend of the year, rain or shine, working on the land, monitoring and taking steps to improve the forest health and wild life habitat; monitoring water sources and wetland areas for changes over time; thinning and pruning trees, dealing with invasive species, pests and disease, the list goes on. Managing and caring for 157 acres of forestland is a lot of work, but Wendy and Ben will be the first to tell you it is a labor of love.
