Review Kari Hock

About Me

 After graduating from Gonzaga University School of Law, I practiced law in the Territory of Guam for close to seven years. After a few years practicing in a local law firm, I opened my own practice. During this time, I also met and married my husband who was in the US Navy. After Guam we relocated to Michigan where I worked as a deputy prosecuting attorney while my husband completed his medical training. After 4 years in Michigan, we received military orders to Sicily, Italy, and eventually back to the Pacific Northwest. My travels and varying work experiences have allowed me to enjoy different perspectives. I am always up for a challenge and the opportunity to assist clients to the best of my abilities.
