Helping You Move To The Next Chapter Of Your Life

We focus much of our family law practice on divorce. In every divorce, there are many different issues that must be resolved, including:

  • Child custody: Deciding where the children will spend their time can be one of the biggest challenges in a divorce. Whenever possible, we will work out a sensible solution through negotiation or mediation.
  • Property division: In Washington, courts are required to divide all marital property equitably. Equitable and equal are not the same thing, and courts are not required to divide marital property 50/50. Our law firm will seek a just and fair division
  • Child support: While Washington law generally sets child support, there are factors that can lead to a deviation from these laws. We will advise you of your rights.
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony): While alimony is not always a factor in divorce, if you hope to receive or expect to pay alimony, our law firm can help.

We also represent members of the military and civilian spouses in divorce. We represent people stationed at Naval Base Kitsap and Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Keyport. Divorce involving members of the military is vastly different than divorce between civilians. We can help you understand these issues while working diligently toward a favorable resolution.

Taking On Other Family Law Matters

Our law firm also handles post-divorce modifications, including complex issues involving custody relocation. We also represent mothers and fathers in paternity matters. If you need to draft or have a lawyer review a prenuptial agreement, we can do this as well.

We represent clients in both straightforward cases to highly charged cases involving domestic violence and other complex factors. At all times, we will provide pragmatic, realistic legal counsel. While we want to help you achieve the best possible outcome, we do not want you to have unrealistic expectations.
