Why Choose Truce Law
Once you’ve decided to pursue an alternative to a traditional divorce, it can be hard to find a practice that will help you and your partner be successful in avoiding the courtroom. You want to find a law firm that has the tools, experience, and resources necessary to help you navigate any and all roadblocks that may appear on your path to the dissolution of your marriage.
We want to make the divorce and family law process as simple as possible by giving you the tools and resources you need to find a solution. We do this through collaborative law, mediation and other compromise driven legal options.
This firm was founded on the premise that divorce and family law didn’t have to be contentious, driven by drama, or leave separating couples feeling like they were in a competition. If you are seeking an alternative to traditional divorce, take a few minutes to see why Truce Law is the right option for you.
We seek agreement first.
More than 90% of divorce cases are settled outside of court. So why would you want to pay for a traditional divorce process when the odds are that you won’t be spending much time in front of a judge? Our philosophy centers on seeking agreement from day one because we felt that there were very few law firms in the Seattle area that focused on that necessary part of creating a divorce settlement. Our attorneys and staff feel coming to a truce is the best way to approach most family issues and we communicate that to our clients.
We know mediation.
Given the choice, we recommend divorcing couples start with mediation, rather than wait to use it as a last resort. Mediation gives partners the opportunity to work out their differences and know they both did their best to understand and to be fair to the other side. It also allows both parties to feel more positive about the end of their relationship. We have many years of experience helping couples navigate the issues that come up during divorce mediations, along with the empathy and patience needed to make sure everyone is heard and understood.
Collaborative law is a passion of our attorneys.
We’re not here because we saw a hole in the divorce methods available to couples in Seattle. We’re here because we truly believe there’s a better way than the traditional divorce route. We’re here because we believe that all couples should have the opportunity to end their marriages in a positive way that is centered on what is best for everyone involved. We’re here because we want court to be a last resort, not a first stop.
We’re here for YOU.
Our dedication to our clients is unmatched and our clients agree. Just check out our testimonials at the bottom of our website or the 5-star reviews on Google and Yelp. In 2021, we were also named as one of the Best Family Lawyers in Seattle by Expertise.com. We’re available until 7PM every weeknight and from 10-2 on Saturdays because we know that not everyone can meet between 9-5 Monday-Friday.
