About me

I was born in Renton, Washington in 1964. Most of my life I lived in Auburn, Washington and graduated from Auburn Senior High School in 1982.

In 1989 I started working in the legal industry as a paralegal/office manager in a small office in south King County. I loved working in the area of law, but after several years I realized that I wanted to become more involved in the cases than just being a paralegal. I continued working and started going to night school to obtain my Bachelor’s degree. In 2004 I graduated from the University of Washington with a major in Sociology and a minor in Communications. After that it was on to law school at Seattle University where I graduated in 2008.

My work experience has given me a vast area of knowledge. During my 20 years in the legal industry, I have worked in family law, personal injury, property damage, medical malpractice, employment law, product liability, bankruptcy, criminal law, real estate, collections, fee disputes, estate planning, and probate. I even did some process serving when I was younger. Thus, my working experience has allowed me to see every aspect of a case from the bottom up.

My family and I currently live in Bellevue, Washington. We love the Pacific Northwest and enjoy a lot of different outdoor activities. We also thoroughly love food and entertainment and take advantage of everything the Seattle/Bellevue area has to offer.

    I met Walt Williams in 2005, and ever since then I have held him in exceptionally high regard. Walt is a skilled family law practitioner, and I have turned to him for advice on several family law issues I faced in my own cases. Aside from possessing a great depth of knowledge about the law, Walt is also deeply caring, honest, and respectful, which are essential qualities in a great lawyer. Walt is easy to communicate with, easy to relate to, and a pleasure to work with. I am very comfortable referring clients to Walt because I am confident he will provide them with excellent service.

    I have known Walt Williams for five years, and I have received assistance from him on family law matters. Walt is intelligent and hard working, but his best quality is that he really cares about people and takes the time to help them understand both the legal and non-legal issues in a case.
