Seattle Divorce Services

We are a divorce law firm focusing on sophisticated strategies for resolving complex and difficult family law issues. When possible we like to use alternative dispute resolution methods like early mediation and collaboration (a team approach to problem solving) to avoid escalating the conflict between the parties. When litigation is needed, we believe in using our dispute resolution training to negotiate what we can, as trial should still be the last option rather than the first.

    Janel K. Ostrem handled my collaborative divorce with understanding and professionalism. Her counsel was timely and thorough. I give her my highest recommendation.

    Janel did a great job! She helped make clear sense of it all at a very hard time in my life. And her experience was very reassuring.

    This is such a strange service to review since it's so emotionally fraught. We thought Nathan did a great job of explaining what he could offer and working with us on what was important to us. After significant work we decided not to go through with the divorce, so in some ways the money (not a small sum for us, at this hourly rate) feels wasted.

    I had a good experience with Mimi. She is very knowledgeable, supportive and worked well with me/us. We worked in a Collaborative Dissolution model and I was very happy with the way the process worked. Thank you.

    I have a parent who is also a divorce lawyer and she describes it as helping people do the right thing for themselves, their former spouse and their children, at their worst moment. That describes Nathan's work. I really appreciated that he backtracked when needed to get things right. I most wanted for it to feel fair but there's no ultimate fair, only making the best of what you both have. He and SPD were fantastic at getting us there, and avoiding court too. Thank you so much Nathan.

    Mark was great. Helpful and not too aggressive. He had a good way of working things that were not confrontational. I'll continue to call if I need additional services.
