Courtney was born in Spokane, and moved to the east coast in high school. She graduated in the top 10% of her class from the University of Baltimore School of Law, and began her legal career in the State of Maryland. She completed a clerkship with the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, after which she worked in public interest representing victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. In 2016, she made the decision to go on inactive status in Maryland and return to her hometown of Spokane, where she has practiced primarily family law.
Courtney approaches her cases with a combination of diligence and creativity, encouraging parties to seek out resolutions that are satisfactory to all involved. She does not believe there is a one size fits all answer to difficult family situations like divorce and establishing parenting plans, but instead carefully evaluates each case to help her clients figure out what works for their own family. If a case cannot be worked out by agreement, Courtney is a strong, zealous advocate, with experience litigating both at the trial level and on appeal.
In her free time, Courtney keeps active by running and keeping up with her nieces and nephews. She also loves to read, and always has a book nearby.
