Pierce Family Law

I grew up in Seattle, attended parochial schools and graduated from the University of Washington. I have three adult children and a teenager, the daughter of my long time partner, all of whom are the light of my life.

I enjoy reading, family dinners, sports, poker, motorcycles and anything "that's out there." I took cooking lessons, on a whim, so I can bake, cook and BBQ with the best. I also took a stand up comedy class; graduation was a one-man show at Giggles Comedy Club. The class proved that graduating doesn't necessarily make you funny.

I have enthusiastically coached high school and college softball for the last 15 years, and I continue to play softball on different teams.

I have specialized in family law for 35+ years because I enjoy helping people and know that I can make a differerence. Here's what I do in the area of family law: divorce, parenting, visitation, custody, relocation. highly contested cases, paternity along with wills and personal injury.

My office is located in downtown Seattle in the Colman Building at 811 First Avenue, Suite 100, Seattle (between Columbia and Marion on 1st Avenue).

I practice in the family law area because I can make a difference and I care about your future. We try to provide representation to protect your rights and interests at all
times, according to your direction. We will aggressively represent you in Family Court to ensure that all of your rights are protected.

In every case, our goal is to help you achieve your goals - and to place you in a position where you can look to the future with hope.
