also known as Krystal M Tate
Hello – my name is Krystal Tate Hulten. I am a licensed attorney in both California and Washington State.
I grew up in Washington and graduated cum laude from Whitworth University in 2008 with Bachelor’s Degrees in Creative Writing and English Literature, then received my Juris Doctor from Seattle University School of Law in 2011 with cum laude honors and a focus in Estate Planning. I was admitted to the Washington State Bar in 2011 at the age of 23.
Throughout law school, I worked as a legal intern for a mid-sized civil litigation firm in Everett, afterwards working with several personal injury attorneys, as well as the Washington State Association for Justice, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of injured people.
I then clerked for the Honorable Michael T. Downes, the presiding judge of Snohomish County Superior Court, gaining invaluable courtroom experience. I cut my teeth in civil litigation at Deno Millikan Law Firm, an eight-attorney firm in Everett, Washington, where I practiced family law as well as personal injury, employment law, real estate, contract law, probate, and various other areas.
I am now settled in beautiful Los Gatos, California, where I practice estate planning and trust litigation with the Law Offices of Douglas P. Barnes, an established boutique estate planning firm in the heart of downtown Los Gatos with a second location in San Luis Obispo.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running with our golden retriever, Zoe, watching Bay Area sports, and trying to learn new languages.
Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408-395-4800. I look forward to working with you to resolve whatever legal issues you may have.
