Our state's family laws are complicated - our Washington divorce lawyers are here to help simplify it for you.
This area of law is very complex, and it takes numerous years of practice in order to fully comprehend its implementation and intricacies. While it may appear that some of Washington State divorce laws and basic concepts appear relatively straightforward, their actual application often times is anything but this. Thus, in addition to having a strong basic understanding of the laws, it is imperative that your WA family law attorney also understands the subtle nuances.
Part of the problem stems from the fact that our Washington divorce laws are somewhat ambiguous and vague by nature. It is intentionally structured to afford judges a tremendous amount of discretion in rendering their decisions. This is the reason why a full understanding of its principles is very critical. Without this thorough understanding, it would nearly be impossible to advise our clients properly about what their options are.

Your Washington divorce attorney's resources, skills, and experience.
As in other areas of practice, your attorney must be competent. The more unusual or difficult your case, the more expertise your Washington divorce attorney must have in order to properly advise and represent you.
