About Us

Linn Legal is a law firm focused on helping business owners and families to grow and thrive by providing smart and clever legal work, on time and on budget. The firm’s driving focus is on transactional work, situations where two people want to make a deal. The firm does not litigate or file lawsuits because we excel at our transactional work and aim to keep you out of a courtroom. The firm is headed by Douglas Linn, a veteran attorney with a skill for math and business administration. When you come to Linn Legal for representation, you draw on legal skills in business, tax, real estate and more. What may look at first glance as a real estate issue may be solved in probate. The sale of a home may have long-term tax consequences that the seller has not considered. Prepare yourself by hiring a law firm that can look at the whole deal to make sure you are getting the best outcome.

What our clients say

They are very thorough and absolutely wonderful to talk to. Very responsive and made sure that I clearly understood my options. Shakespeare was wrong about at least one attorney! 5.0/5.0 Marianne K.

Doug Linn has been my primary attorney for a number of years. He's handled matters ranging from document review, legal strategy, and litigation, and each time we've had a successful and satisfactory outcome. The best thing about working with LinnLegal is you're not overcharged for quick questions, a brief phone call, or a follow-up e-mail. That's meaningful when you're trying to work through something and you want to ask your attorney for advice. I highly recommend LinnLegal. Paul M.

I hired LinnLegal to help look over and negotiate an important business contract. Doug did an excellent job of looking over everything carefully and he pointed out several potential pitfalls of the original contract wording. He did a great job of reviewing everything in a timely manner, and he was extremely reasonable with his time estimates and his budgeting. Doug's expertise and professionalism ensured everything went smoothly. I had great peace of mind knowing that Doug was representing my interests well, and I highly recommend him and his firm. Clint H.
