About me

The above video is a couple of years old.  A new one is currently on my web page - www.smobrian.com.  


 


I began practicing family law in 1986.  For 29 years I have been an effective, thorough and respected member of the Washington Bar. I have represented many wonderful men and women, some of whom still keep in touch with me today.  I have had the privilege of appearing before some excellent King County Family Law Commissioners and King County Judges, some of whom are no longer with us, and I feel validated by the kind and complimentary comments I have received from them over the years about my approach to family law, my thoroughness, and my civility in the process.  I have expanded from being a sole practitioner to running a corporation and working with four associate attorneys, and brainstorming with them on all of their cases.
