David B. Starks

That personality has served him well over the years as he has carved out an impressive legal career that few attorneys twice his age can match: Diplomate of the American College of Family Trial Lawyers; Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers; Top 100 Attorneys in Washington State; The Best Lawyers in America; Washington Super Lawyers; and, most recently, Best Lawyers 2022 “Lawyer of the Year” for family law in the Seattle Metro Area.

Aside from public accolades and rankings, David is a strategic thinker, a gifted advocate, and a warm “people person” who believes that “law, even as an imperfect human creation, is capable of great things.” Every day, he demonstrates this by representing clients in a wide range of divorce cases involving the protection, valuation, and distribution of significant assets or business interests, as well as other cutting-edge family law issues such as international divorce and child custody.

Whether at the negotiating table or in court, David says he will “go the distance” to resolve each case in the best interests of his clients. And he will do so with kindness and dignity.

David Starks is the type of professional who can handle the toughest cases that come in the door with aplomb. He is admired throughout the office for his innate ability to connect with clients and for his willingness to share his expertise with younger lawyers.
