From our founding, over 35 years ago, the law firm has made a commitment in our marketplace to educate other real estate professionals, accountants, attorneys, mortgage brokers and real estate agents with quality legal education to meet all of their continuing education requirements required by their profession. It is a commitment we have not taken lightly.

That commitment grew over the years until about 25 years ago we formed an actual school licensed and approved by the State of Washington Department of Licensing to teach continuing education classes to real estate brokers and other industry professionals.  Since that time “McFerran University” has operated separate and apart from the law office and has grown dramatically adding new instructors and new classes in all fields of real estate law.

For most of those 35 years all of the classes were offered live at our facility in Tacoma with other live classes offered at various other venues around the State of Washington. That manner and method of live classes changed pretty dramatically with the onslaught of COVID-19. All of our classes became web-based Zoom classes and, surprisingly, our class sizes increased dramatically as parties from all over the State of Washington could now easily attend from the convenience of their home or office. Our school has grown in attendance dramatically as a result of COVID-19.

As we come out of the severe effects of the pandemic, we have abandoned all live classes and we will continue in the future to offer ALL of our classes LIVE, but on line via Zoom.
