Business Spotlight: Donaldson & Knigge
Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. To keep our downtown thriving, it’s more critical than ever that we think local first.
In this new series, we will be highlighting independently-owned businesses, and learn more about the folks that make them run!
Meet Lisa Donaldson from Donaldson & Knigge, LLC.
What is your favorite part of your business?
I love talking with people and assisting them in identifying and addressing issues they are facing.
Why did you start your business?
My husband and I are both attorneys. We wanted to have a practice that would be helpful to others and also allow us to have time to raise our family.
Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
We are fortunate in that our business could be located anywhere in the Puget Sound region but we love Edmonds because of the community, the lively small business community, and the happiness we feel when we walk down the street.
What is unique about your business?
My side of the practice is traffic infractions. My husband handles clients who were injured in auto accidents. We both talk to our clients and to people who call us for a consult.
Why should people do business with you?
We both have over 25 years in our area’s of practice. We work to communicate with our clients on a regular basis and we work very hard to obtain the best result possible.
What are you currently doing differently during this time?
We do most of our business via phone and internet these days. We can schedule an appointment to meet a client if required. We have posted signs at the business about social distancing and masking, we have masks available on entry, as well as hand sanitizer, gloves and disinfectant wipes.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
We are sea glass hunters! We began our search about 15 years ago on a trip to Port Townsend. Oh gosh the days we have spent wandering beaches since then provide some of our best memories.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your business?
We love what we do.
