My practice at Pearce Law, PLLC, focuses on general civil litigation with an emphasis in real estate, business and contracts. I do transactional work within these areas as well. To best serve my clients, one of the primary focuses of my practice is alternative dispute resolution, facilitation and mediation, having completed the Seminar on Advanced Negotiations at Harvard Law School.
Prior to forming Pearce Law, PLLC, I worked at The Buck Law Group where I assisted clients with a variety of matters in real estate, construction, and land use litigation, as well as employment, business, and contract matters.
I worked for U.S. District Court Chief Judge John Coughenour while in my third year of law at the University of Washington. I also spent a summer in London working for the British Government at the Audit Commission, and was a member of UW’s Mock Trial Team that participated in the N.I.T.A. National Mock Trial Competition held in Washington D.C. in 2001, one month after 9/11.
I donated more than 50 pro bono hours per year from 2005 through 2010.
In my spare time I am an avid photographer, home remodeler and dog lover.
