About Us

Thomas Hackett

Attorney At Law

Thomas is a legal strategist and advisor to families and business owners. Thomas founded NW Legacy Law Center, P.S. to provide estate planning and business planning legal services in a friendlier way. The response has been incredible:


  • 2016 Best in Business for Law Firms by the Vancouver Business Journal,
  • 2015 Best of Clark County for Lawyers by The Columbian,
  • 2015 Best in Business for Law Firms by the Vancouver Business Journal,
  • 2014 Best in Business for Law Firms by the Vancouver Business Journal, and
  • 2014 Start-Up Business of the Year in the Business Growth Awards.


What is Thomas’s approach? Keeping it simple. Thomas likes helping people. Fancy legal words aren’t helpful and neither are explanations that are more complicated than the question.


Thomas and his wife, Tara, are the proud parents of two energetic children. Thomas’s family enjoys skiing at Mt. Hood, watching Tara brave the cold Oregon coast to surf, and spending time in Hood River as Thomas kiteboards.
