Many divorces start out with amicable intentions but devolve into quarrels and standoffs. Other times, it is clear from the start that spouses are headed for court, and the jockeying begins as soon as the divorce papers are filed.
The important thing is to have a capable trial lawyer advising you from the beginning. An attorney who has tried divorce and custody cases is better able to advocate for you if and when you end up in court. That same trial lawyer should also possess key insights and strategies that might help you avoid an unwise or unnecessary courtroom battle.

We invite you to contact us to discuss your specific situation. Based in Redmond, our attorneys practice in the family law courts of King County and Snohomish County, Washington, and throughout the Seattle area.

Divorce litigation has its time and place. It may be the only way to protect yourself from a vindictive or dishonest spouse. It can serve as a reality check that brings you back to the negotiating table. It may simply be necessary for a court to rule on a point of law or to break an impasse.
Litigation rarely has clear winners because of the financial drain, the emotional toll and strained relations afterward. We help clients explore and exhaust cooperative alternatives, but we always prepare and position clients for potential litigation. We want you to feel assured that you are in good hands, in or out of court.
