Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Awarded "Best of 2018 Tacoma Divorce Lawyer." I have been a lawyer for over 28 years, because I thoroughly enjoy helping others. From January 2011 to April 2013, I served as a Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner. I presided over family law, probate/estate, guardianship, mental illness, juvenile court, landlord tenant, mortgage foreclosure, and other matters. I chose to leave the bench and to return to private practice. I missed directly helping others. I still occasionally serve as a Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner Pro Tempore.

I assist my clients primarily with divorce, legal separation, child custody, and child support issues. I represent clients in high conflict litigation as well as in collaborative matters. I also serve as a mediator. My prior experience as a mental health social worker and my mediation skills are essential to helping others to handle stress and to focus on long-term goals.

Serving on the bench has sharpened my ability to present an objective perspective and to assist a potential client in evaluating outcomes. I provide an initial one-half hour free consultation. I charge any additional time based upon my prorated hourly rate. My goals is to advise you on the the relevant laws and court processes relevant to the issue at hand. I want you to leave my office with an action plan.

I have served as President of the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association, President of the Family Law Section of that Association, and as Trustee of both boards for many years. I continue to be involved with a variety of boards and committees. When I am not busy with clients or professional activities, I enjoy time with my husband, our many pets, and my piano.
