Client Comments

"In both permitting and litigation, Sandy Macky has given us outstanding representation and counsel. We would recommend him without hesitation."
- Kyle Heaton
Port of Centralia
"Alexander ("Sandy") has been an invaluable member and asset to the Association of Washington Business. Our organization lobbies the Washington state Legislature and state agencies on behalf of over 6500 members on a variety of issues, including environmental issues. Sandy's legal knowledge and practical experience with land use and environmental law have been instrumental in assisting us with reviewing and commenting on a variety of legislative bills. Sandy always approaches controversial issues with a positive, constructive, and proactive attitude."
- Christian McCabe
Association of Washington Business
"Realvest Corporation has been benefiting from Sandy Mackie's land use counsel for over 15 years. We are a development company with larger than average projects and we consider Sandy to be the most knowledgeable land use attorney in the state of Washington. He simply knows whereof he speaks; he doesn't have to look laws up - he knows them. Thus, if we need quick information, we get it. If we need detailed briefs or argumentation with Cities and Counties, he is the man to persuasively deal with the issue. He has saved our skins many times. "
- Anonymous
"I have worked with Alex on both domestic and international professional service contracts for close to 15 years. Her reputation as an effective real estate attorney is terrific and her ability to assist our firm in a timely and professional manner is consistently automatic. Alex is an unwavering advocate on behalf of her clients and has the set of skills to effectively negotiate tricky issues in a non-adversarial manner, which leads to agreement without alienating potential clients. She understands what is important to us as a service provider and also understands the needs and requirements of our clients; she can facilitate a mutual understanding and ultimate agreement in a cost effective and efficient manner.
