Melissa Marie Denton

Practice Area:Family

Outcome:WA Supreme Court ruling on Contempt in Parenting

Description:I represented the mother who was unsuccessful when she tried to get her teenage daughter to go on part of a visit with the father. The lower court held my client in contempt and the appellate courts upheld the ruling. It was difficult for my client and I disagree with the courts' rulings, but it made important law in Washington State.
