Karen Lindholdt

As a leading Spokane Attorney, Karen Lindholdt has been a successful advocate for the injured and wrongfully accused for nearly three decades.

"I listen to you. You are the expert on your case. I start all of my cases by listening to the client and helping them determine what they hope to accomplish in the case. 

I fight for you. I have spent the last 28 years fighting for people who have been bullied, victimized by corporate greed, and wronged by corporations and governments abusing power. 

I care about you. My entire practice has focused on representing individuals - either plaintiffs in civil cases or criminal defendants.

I have a proven track record of helping injured people. I have represented thousands of clients throughout my career and successfully met their goals in their individual cases."
