Learn more about Michael

We are a law firm focusing on dispute resolution in difficult or complex divorces. We are located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. We have made it our mission to improve the way divorce is handled in the Seattle area.

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 current work in Collaborative Divorce. As the firm grew, Mike sought other like minded attorneys to join him in creating the firm we are today.

In addition to their years of experience as litigators, our attorneys train in mediation to improve their dispute resolution skills. This mediation training has heightened our commitment to finding 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 settlement possibilities can be developed where seemingly none existed.
