Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am passionate about being a strong advocate for clients during challenging times in their lives. I understand how important family is, and will work with you to protect your rights and interests without adding unnecessarily to the stress, animosity, and chaos that can affect a family going through a divorce, custody disagreement, or other legal action. My practice welcomes all clients, but has a particular emphasis on addressing the unique needs of survivors of domestic violence, military families, and LGBTQ families facing discrimination or extra hurdles. Happy times can be challenging too, and I enjoy helping families that are expanding through adoption or assisted reproduction, as well as working out agreements between new partners who want to avoid future conflict. I am an active volunteer with the King County Bar Association’s Neighborhood Legal Clinics and I am dedicated to helping lower-income clients access legal help as a member of the Washington State Bar Association’s Moderate Means Program. (Sliding-scale fee structure based on income and family size for households between 200% to 400% of the federal poverty guidelines.)
