Family Law Attorney in Seattle, WA

James is a member of the Family Law Practice Group. He has worked alongside many of Seattle’s most notable and respected family law attorneys throughout his career. James’ strategy in each case, honed by his experiences, is to focus on creative ways to resolve disputes rather than create them. However, James understands that clients frequently have urgent needs that necessitate prompt action and court intervention. In every case, James’ goal is to assist families in dealing with critical legal issues by providing patient, thoughtful, and professional advice and representation aimed at protecting their legal rights and interests.

James has only practiced family law since the day he became an attorney. James has extensive experience in various family law areas, including divorce cases involving high net worth, complex finances, jurisdictional issues, and enforcement. He also has extensive experience litigating cases in court and through mediation/arbitration. James understands that the decisions made in a case will have long-term consequences for a client’s financial health, and he approaches each case with a long-term outcome focus and strategy.
