Ryan P. Hamilton
Family Law Attorney

I chose to be a divorce lawyer and custody attorney because the first time I saw how much happier someone could be at the end of a divorce, I knew I was doing the right thing. It changed my entire perspective on what divorce actually means for someone. It means a new direction, a new path, a new life. It means being able to find happiness again.

Megan K. Paull
Family Law Attorney

Being a family law attorney always felt like the right path for me. I have always had an ability to connect with people and understand their perspective. This has been a great strength in helping people through divorce and custody disputes. As a Washington divorce lawyer, I do everything I can to make sure people make the best decisions for their family and future.

Conor Buie
Family Law Attorney

I always try my hardest to find ways to relate to clients on a personal level, having experienced family law issues in my own life. I believe that an empathetic approach allows me to better understand how difficult a family law case can be for all involved parties.  It also allows me to see the positive outcomes that are possible.  I provide counsel and assistance in cases involving divorce, child custody, child support, relocation actions, protection orders, and minor guardianships.

David Blair Attorney

"Megan was great! She helped me get through a really tough time. I had false allegations made about me and she showed that not only were they untrue, but the individual making the allegations was unreasaonble, not credible, and vindictive. I highly recommend her."
