Our attorneys at Meridian Family Law, in our Seattle, Washington law office, strive to help family law clients reach sound resolutions while seeking to minimize conflict. Conflict in divorce, child custody and support proceedings as well as other family law matters often aggravate already difficult situations. This can negatively impact the parties interpersonally and also adversely affect children and extended family. Such discord conflict often usually also increases legal fees. Our lawyers devise strategies designed to reduce strife conflict, foster precise legal agreements and arguments, and promote fair outcomes in cost-effective and amicable ways.

Our law office focuses primarily on helping clients resolve family legal disputes, but we also provide legal services and transactional work related to family law issues such as providing mediation services, drafting and reviewing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, LGBTQ+ and step-parent adoptions, etc. We support and represent clients through family law matters, including the following:

• Divorce
• Mediations
• Parenting plans/modifications
• Child support
• LGBTQ+ family law
• Military divorce
• Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements; co-habitation agreements
• Step-Parent and LGBTQ+ Adoptions
• Domestic violence
• Collaborative Divorce

We place a strong emphasis on cooperative approaches to family law and alternative dispute resolution. If we cannot help clients resolve issues through mediation or negotiations, or when those are not reasonable alternatives for a particular case, we take a matter to court. Meridian Family Law focuses on clients' future well-being and security, not just short-term results. We strive to mitigate unnecessary conflict and help clients find resolution, stability, and long-term happiness.

Our commitment to fostering wellness and stability for our clients stems from our extensive experience in practicing law and assisting families as they journey through the difficulties of a family law case. We regularly see how litigating family issues often creates more upset and discord - both emotionally and economically. We approach our cases with this context in mind and guide our clients through the legal process prudently and effectively.

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.
