Guiding You Through The Divorce Process

At the law office of Auburn Lawyer, LLC, I can handle every aspect of divorce. I am dedicated to developing a clear, personal strategy with each of my clients. I do this by communicating directly with my clients to determine their issues and shaping my representation based on their specific needs and concerns. One of the first tasks I handle is collaborating with my client to develop a budget and economic plan to provide them success in their case. Knowing your expenses and participating in decision making for those costs is important to my clients.

My law firm is selective in the cases it takes. This allows me to provide more attention to my clients and develop a close relationship with them to find the best solution in their cases. I don't take cases just to pay my overhead. When clients work with my law firm, they will have direct contact with me. I encourage their inputs throughout this process to help with economic planning and how to create the best strategy.

Types Of Cases I Handle

Filing for divorce does not need to be as scary or difficult as it appears. I can walk clients through the process and help them understand all of their options. My law firm handles contested and uncontested divorces in Washington and helps clients with the following issues:

  • Divorce, including military divorce and same-sex divorce
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Parenting plans
  • Post-decree modifications
  • Child support and spousal support
  • Property division
  • Asset and debt division
  • Substance abuse and divorce issues

I personally prepare all documents in each case and have more than 25 years of experience drafting, reviewing and preparing a variety of documents that may be necessary during the divorce process.

Is Substance Abuse A Factor In Divorce?

Negotiating a settlement can be difficult without a skilled lawyer. The situation is even more challenging if the case goes to trial. Having an experienced attorney can help protect a client's best interests and make sure all options are explored. In addition to having extensive experience with family law issues, I am a certified Chemical Dependency Professional and know what issues to address when a client or family member is recovering from substance abuse.

My client's needs come first at my law firm. To discuss your specific divorce issues, call me at 253-220-7477 or contact me online. I offer free 20-minute initial consultations.
