About me

I am on a hiatus from the practice of law to focus on volunteering in the community. My focus is on environmental matters and local arts. Previously, I consulted in the legal department for Getty Images, a leading worldwide provider of digital media. Prior to Getty Images, I worked in executive search. Before search, I worked as a commercial and maritime litigator. I still enjoy speaking with newer attorneys about their long-term career goals and how to reach those goals.

  • Joshua M King

    Lynn is a terrific legal recruiter - she is highly connected in the Northwest, incredibly organized, and is the reason I became GC at Avvo (she filled the job despite never being retained to do so!). She always does a wonderful job providing advice and career guidance for both younger lawyers and those of us a little further along in our practices.
