Our Attorneys Are Committed to Amicably Resolving Conflicts and Are Equipped for Court When Alternative Means of Resolution Are Unsuccessful

It is a fact of modern life that marriages sometimes come to an end. For some couples, getting divorced is an amicable joint decision. For others, one spouse is blindsided by the other’s decision to leave. Other marriages break up because one spouse is unfaithful or abusive. Whatever the reason for your separation, the compassionate family law attorneys at de Maar Law will listen to your story and develop a plan that prioritizes your goals. With decades of experience in family law, our attorneys are prepared for anything and are ready to fight for you.

Focused on Conflict Resolution, Prepared for Litigation

We approach every one of our family law cases with the hope of working cooperatively with the other side to resolve disputes. This approach can prevent further heartache and also save time and money. However, if our client’s priorities are not being achieved, we are more than able to go to court to fight for them. Not every family law practice can say this. In fact, many firms in Bellevue, Everett, Snohomish, Seattle, and the surrounding areas refer their litigation cases to us. If you choose de Maar Law to assist you with your divorce, child support or custody dispute, or to renegotiate an existing agreement, we have the skills to go all the way through trial, if necessary, to obtain the results you want.

Keeping Costs Down

As a small boutique firm, our goal is to make clients feel safe and comfortable. We choose cost-effective strategies that accomplish our client’s goals without adding to the cost. We won’t litigate over frivolous issues just so we can charge you more.

If you find you are in the separation or divorce process, contact our firm to determine if we are the right fit for you. We think you will be pleased with what you hear.

Kristin Kelly Heads Our Alcoholic Beverage Law Department

Since the overturn of state control of alcohol sales in 2012, we have seen an increase in disputes between distributors and suppliers, particularly for craft brewers and distillers. This practice area has grown quickly for us over the last couple of years and we currently represent a variety of beverage law clients. If you are a small distributor or supplier whose rights are being tread on by national and international rivals, call our beverage law attorney. We are proud to be able to provide legal guidance in this unique and growing practice area.
