Hello, I’m Kathryn, and I have been a practicing attorney since my admission to the Washington State Bar in 1986. My passion is helping people through serious, life-changing events so the Family Law practice area was a natural selection for me.


My tenets are the Three C’s: Conviction, Compassion and Creative Problem Resolution. I am dedicated to delivering the best possible outcome for each and every one of my clients and in this age of 24/7, I am accessible in real time.


Throughout my career, I have advised and represented hundreds of clients from diverse and varied backgrounds in the most serious Family Law issues they have faced. I believe in effective representation and that all clients should have a choice in attorney selection — if you are in need, please call or email for a free 15-minute consultation.

Swift and deliberate..
My expieriance with Ms Jenkins and her staff was just that. Ms Jenkins orchestrated a timely win situation for both parties involved without going to court AND kept my costs reasonable. Thank you Ms Jenkins for representing my son and I very well.

Recomendation of Mrs. Kathryn Jenkins
I found Kathryn Jenkins to be a true advocate. She really cares about her clients. Most attorney's I have dealt with simple want to run their meter and are primarily worried about their billable hours. Mrs. Jenkins is the opposite, and she is also a fighter who get in there and takes her cases personally. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is tired of getting run over and needs someone right the ship. Thank you miss Jenkins you are a answer to prayers!

Best of the Best
Kathryn is recognized as one of the leading divorce attorneys in Washington. I know this because I did a lot of research before I hired her; I also know this because my neighbor is a judge recommended her above all others; I know this because I watched her work in court; and I know this because she was so highly recommended by her former clients. Kathryn truly cared about my case, but moreover, she truly cared about me. She went out of her way to schedule appointments that considered my schedule; she sympathized with me where it was appropriate to do so; she showed "tough love" when it was necessary and she fought for me like a veritable pitbull. My case was very complex, including custody issues and 7 figure financial issues. Kathryn presented the case like an accountant, social worker and legal scholar all wrapped into one. She is truly the best of the best and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Highly Recommend!
Kathryn has been my lawyers for four years. She has effectively and efficiently helped me dissolve my marriage, complete temporary and permanent parenting plans, obtain restraining and protection orders, file contempt motions and represent me in a trial. When I phoned Kathryn four years ago my situation had just gone from bad to horrible. Kathryn met with me immediately and explained the process. Unfortunately, my situation continued to escalate after the divorce and a final parenting plan were completed. Every time I have needed Kathryn she has been there for me. While my situation has been a roller coaster, I have always had confidence in Kathryn’s representation of me. Our safety has always been Kathryn’s priority. After four years of working with Kathryn, I appreciate her experience, professionalism, her very effective communication style (written and verbal), timely responses to myself and to the courts, attention to details and her attitude. I have always felt like Kathryn is working in our best interest.

She's the best !
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Ms Jenkins and her ability to help me. She was the best balance of tough and kind in helping me navigate through a hard situation to a very positive result.
