A Family Lawyer’s Story

By Elise F. Buie


I am a family law attorney and guardian ad litem who owns a family law firm in downtown Seattle, Washington. Employing three other attorneys, a paralegal, and an office manager/executive assistant, I successfully maintain a practice that has four legs to it: guardian ad litem work, divorce proceedings (including litigation and collaborative law), marital agreements (pre-nups and post-nups), and the representation of parents whose children have been removed from their home owing to abuse or neglect (this dependency work is performed under a contract with the office of public defense).
