Prior to opening The Filutowski Law Firm, PLLC, I worked for prominent Seattle litigation firms, representing seriously injured individuals against insurance companies. I have brought justice to my clients through hundreds of negotiations, arbitrations, mediations and trial.
A Seattle area native, I lecture on law at her alma mater, the University of Washington, and am an active member of the Puget Sound community. I volunteer with the King County Bar Association Bilingual Spanish Legal Clinic, helping Spanish speakers access legal aid. I am an active board member of the Washington State Association for Justice, King County Washington Women Lawyers Board and American Bar Association Corporate Social Responsibility Committee.
Following the 2002 Enron scandal, I helped pioneer the nation’s leading academic center on business ethics and corporate governance as a Founding Fellow of The Center on Corporations, Law & Society at Seattle University School of Law. I have worked on some of the more prominent cases in the field including the Corrie v. Caterpillar case that alleged the aiding and abetting of human rights violations under the Alien Tort Claims Act.
In 2005, I studied alternative dispute resolution among Harvard Business School faculty and European lawyers at the University of Rome in Rome, Italy, and assisted in the negotiation of international sales contracts at General Electric Oil & Gas in Florence, Italy.
I graduated with honors (Dean’s List, Phi Beta Kappa) from University of Washington, Seattle – Business School (B.A., Business Administration), and I hold a J.D. from Seattle University School of Law (where I excelled in Moot Court and was inducted into the National Order of the Barristers). I am admitted to practice in Washington State.
