We are a law firm located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle that focuses on dispute resolution in difficult or complex divorces. We have made it our mission to improve the way divorce is handled in the Seattle area. No matter how messy your divorce is, we will work to find the right solution for you.

Our firm motto is “Innovative Approaches — Reasonable Solutions.” Mike Fancher founded our firm, and he has always looked for better ways to serve family law clients. This included his early work in volunteer legal clinics, in the development of pro se legal services, his training as a mediator, and his extensive work in collaborative divorce. As the firm grew, Mike sought other like-minded attorneys to join him in creating the firm we are today.

The attorneys that make up our firm have years of experience as litigators, representing clients in highly complicated and emotional disputes. In addition to their litigation experience, our attorneys train in mediation to improve their dispute resolution skills. This mediation training has heightened our commitment to finding different ways to resolve cases.

When we are negotiating in the midst of a difficult litigation, the mediation background provides additional tools for discovering the hidden underlying interests of the parties so that we can develop settlement possibilities where seemingly none existed. Whether you and your spouse are on good terms or can’t bear to look at each other, we’ll work together to find a way forward.

Our Approach to Divorce Proceedings

The methods our attorneys employ to resolve disputes in divorces include litigation, collaboration, and mediation. You can read more on our Divorce Options pages, and your attorney can discuss these options with you in more detail.

Since your circumstances are unique, we offer a low-cost consultation to help you better understand your options. If you would like to come in to talk about your divorce situation and how we might be able to help you, please give us a call at 206-784-3049. Linda at our front desk can help you schedule a time that works for you.

Our divorce lawyers are all skilled in various areas of divorce law, including child support, parenting plans, complex financial settlements, and more. However, each attorney in our firm has a unique focus within divorce and family law. We encourage you to take a look at the attorney profiles to help you decide which of our lawyers might feel like the best fit for you.

If you are unsure of what to ask or how to look for the right divorce attorney, feel free to contact us. You can ask whatever questions you have with no obligation.
