About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    Whether you want a legal separation, or the marriage ended, divorce lawyers assist you to arrange financial and family matters such as alimony, child custody/support, and the division of assets/liabilities.

    25 years

  2. Child custody
    A child custody lawyer can help you negotiate custody, either by agreement or in court. Custody arrangements address where and with whom the children will live.

    25 years

  3. Family
    Family law includes laws of marriage, divorce, same-sex relationships, property settlements, spousal abuse, and matters related to children. I estimate about 10% of what i do does not fit neatly into the other categories about my practice.

    25 years

  4. Child support
    A child support lawyer can help parents negotiate and calculate child support, either by agreement or in court. If you believe you are not the father of a child and want to contest support, a child support lawyer can help you determine paternity.

    25 years

  5. Domestic violence
    A DV attorney can help protect you if you or your family have been the victim of domestic violence. Conversely, if you have been accused, DV lawyers can also defend you against false accusations of domestic violence.

    25 years

  6. Alimony
    Alimony payments (also called spousal support) are intended to preserve the lifestyle the former spouse enjoyed before the divorce. Unlike child support, which is a required payment to fund a child's necessities, no one is guaranteed alimony.

    25 years

  7. Child abuse
    Child physical or emotional abuse claims can arise in a variety of contexts and motives. You may seek a child abuse lawyer whether you have been accused of child abuse, or if you're seeking to file a lawsuit on the victim's behalf.

    25 years

  8. Landlord or tenant
    Landlord tenant law concerns landlord and tenants' rights and responsibilities. If you are being evicted or if you have a tenant you want to evict, you may benefit from the services of a landlord / tenant lawyer.

    25 years

  9. Mediation
    The mediation process can help you resolve disputes without going to court. In a mediation proceeding, a neutral third party (a mediation lawyer or mediator) meets with you and the person you disagree with.

    11 years


I am Jennifer Ann Pearson, Attorney at Law. I have been practicing law in the state of Washington since 1997; the primary focus of my law practice for over 20 years is Family Law.  

As a Family Law attorney, my practice and experience include Divorce Litigation, Legal Separation, Child Custody, Child Support, Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Cohabitation Agreements, Child Dependency, Domestic Violence Protection Orders, Fathers' Rights, Modifications of Child Custody Orders and Parenting Plans, Non-Parental Custody, Paternity, Relocation Issues, Restraining Orders, and Community and Separate , I have litigation and transactional experience in Real Estate, Landlord-Tenant, and other Civil Litigation matters.  

I am a native of the state of Iowa.  I obtained my undergraduate degree at the University of Iowa and law degree from Creighton University.  I am a member in good standing of the Iowa State Bar Association in addition to the Washington State Bar Association.


My typical first contact with a new client is via an initial consultation; that is a meeting of up to one (1) hour in duration and I offer the time at a discount from my normal hourly rate.  (My normal hourly rate is $ per hour; I charge $ for the initial consultation.)  The basic purpose of your initial consultation is for you to ask questions about my practice and the issue(s) that bring you to seek legal counsel and for me to understand your concerns and desires.  Basic goals for the representation of your interests will be explored and I will answer questions to the extent I am able based on the information you provide during the meeting.  

To help me to understand your needs, I suggest that you bring to the initial consultation copies of any recent court papers or other documents that you believe are relevant to your matter.  However, do not worry if you are unable to gather these documents prior to the meeting.  You can always send copies to me later.  (Remember, you should always keep your original documents in a safe place.)

At the time you schedule a consultation, please provide us with the name of the opposing party so that we can check for any conflicts of interest.

I look forward to serving you.

Direct, compassionate, and authentic
Currently have Jennifer retained, and couldn't be happier. Jennifer and her paralegal have been direct and honest about everything, they've provided more piece of mind than I thought I'd be able to find going through my divorce. There is a lot of authenticity in Jennifer's approach and she knows how to think outside the box. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking counsel, 10/10.

Professional, responsive and dedicated.
Jennifer Pearson was my advocate in a separation/divorce, where it seemed, I didn't hold any of the winning cards. My telephone calls with Jennifer were communicative and responsive. I am impressed with the high level of execution and sense of urgency Jen and her team had. They know how to prioritize so the right things get done and they don't waste time or money. Jennifer Pearson is open and straightforward. She explained the law and procedures so that I understood and could make clear decisions. She talked to me about the strengths and weaknesses of my case and strategized for fair negotiations. Jennifer is not easily intimidated and uses her brain over brawn. Estimating what the cost of my divorce would be if we could not come to a negotiation, I am thankful she has a smarter not harder approach. I will always speak highly of Jennifer Pearson. She has a long history in family law and I am certain she and her team will work zealously, with integrity and compassion for anyone who is in need of family law representation.

Remarkable Woman
I spoke with Jennifer Pearson on the telephone prior to hiring her. I was impressed with her attention to my needs, the pertinent questions she asked and the straight forward answers she gave me. After having hired her to represent me I discovered that she has a terrific work ethic, gets her facts straight, pursues issues quickly and efficiently. She also has a down-to-earth attitude that builds confidence in her client. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone needing advice and guidance in Family Law.

do not retain!
Jennifer did nothing for me except take my money and write some emails! We talked on the phone a few times, was very personable and pretty, but I paid over $12k and I do NOT recommend her. I hired her based on a friends recommendation and four years later post divorce I'm still dealing with a bad deal in my divorce. Instead hire Connolly Tacon & Meserve or probably anyone else!

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jan 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jennifer has earned a reputation for practicing family law with compassion for her clients, integrity, and meticulous attention to the quality of her work. Knowing that she had this reputation, and having had several cases with her that confirmed that reputation, I felt fortunate when an opportunity presented itself for her to office share with me several years ago. Now, I see her compassion, integrity and dedication at work every day. I have also learned that she researches the new or challenging legal issues in her cases extensively, is a patient listener (a quality often lacking even among good attorneys) and is able, after listening, to give tough advice. I would not hesitate to refer any family law matter to her."
Family Attorney | May 27
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Jennifer is a great attorney who I recommend and would not hesitate to send a client to if needed. She is calm, reasonable, kind, and always professional. She has the social skills to avoid unnecessary problems, but the tenacity to follow through when needed."
