About me

to opening The Filutowski Law Firm, PLLC, I worked for
prominent Seattle litigation firms, representing seriously injured
individuals against insurance companies.  I have brought justice to my clients through hundreds of negotiations, arbitrations, mediations
and trial.


A Seattle area native, I lecture on law at her alma mater, the University of Washington, and am an active member of the Puget Sound community.   I volunteer with the King County Bar Association Bilingual Spanish Legal Clinic, helping Spanish speakers access legal aid.  I am an active board member of the Washington State Association for Justice, King County Washington Women Lawyers Board and American Bar Association Corporate Social Responsibility Committee.


Following the 2002 Enron scandal, I helped pioneer the
nation’s leading academic center on business ethics and corporate
governance as a Founding Fellow of The Center on Corporations, Law
& Society at Seattle University School of Law.  I have worked on
some of the more prominent cases in the field including the Corrie v. Caterpillar case that alleged the aiding and abetting of human rights violations under the Alien Tort Claims Act.


In 2005, I studied alternative dispute resolution among
Harvard Business School faculty and European lawyers at the University
of Rome in Rome, Italy, and assisted in the negotiation of
international sales contracts at General Electric Oil & Gas in
Florence, Italy.



I graduated with honors (Dean’s List, Phi Beta Kappa) from University of Washington,
Seattle – Business School  (B.A., Business Administration), and I hold a
J.D. from Seattle University School of Law (where I excelled in Moot Court and was inducted into the National Order of the Barristers). I am admitted to practice in Washington State.
