About Me

I am a partner at the law firm of Anderson York in Seattle. I practice primarily family law, with a focus on cases involving complicated parenting issues like domestic violence or child abuse. My goal is to increase access to justice. To that end, my fees aim to be reasonable and affordable for low- to middle-income folks. I offer a sliding fee scale and work with my clients to find affordable solutions to their legal problems.
