About me

With a career history spanning over three decades, Shirley gained experience in the allied health care field and higher education before going into law. Shirley's practice currently focues primarily on family law and estate planning. Having earned an MBA in 2003, Shirley also enjoys handling small business matters to round out her practice.


Attending law school in Seattle, Shirley spent a year with the Northwest Justice Project – Refugee and Immigrant Advocacy Project, and she did a 10-week internship with the Washington State Bar Association Office of Disciplinary Counsel. She also did a summer study abroad in International Business in Marseilles, France, while earning her MBA from Portland State University.
