I joined Northwest Justice Project in December 2018. I am working on the Skagit Justice Project, which focuses on providing wraparound services to sruvivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and sex trafficking. Most of my practice involves family law issues (divorce, parenting plans, child support, etc.), in addition, we provide legal services on any issues impacted by being the target of sexualized violence, including housing, consumer, education, and more. 

As a nonprofit, all services are free, but clients must be screened by the CLEAR line. You can also find great resources created and maintained by NJP at washingtonlawhelp.org.
