As a lawyer, I have focused my entire career on family law. Helping families through this process is my passion. I have extensive experience in both negotiation and litigation, and am a zealous advocate for my clients while recognizing the importance of avoiding unnecessary litigation.

I pride myself on the lasting relationships I build with my clients and my ability to give practical and straight-forward advice.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Law from Washington State University, where I attended the honors college, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Oregon. While in law school, I regularly competed in Moot Court competitions, winning first place and Best Brief in the Environmental Law Competition. I was also selected to compete at Harvard in the Animal Law Moot Court Competition. I was an Environmental and Natural Resources Fellow and was awarded the school's Public Service Award.

I currently live in Seattle with my husband and two sons. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, traveling, and the occasional science fiction movie or novel.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
