Family Law and Immigration Attorney
My practice is a general practice with a focus on family law, immigration and appellate work in Seattle, Washington. I have a working knowledge of Russian and German, which facilitates my work with members of the Russian community in the areas of family law and immigration.

For the past 19 years, I have concentrated on family law and immigration. In the family law arena, I have argued dozens of cases before a variety of courts and in a variety of counties: from Pacific county in the south to Clallam county in the north.

Families have always been my focus; from child custody litigation, child support, modifications, divorce, processing immigrant fiance' and marriage petitions to arranging foreign adoptions. Whenever a child is involved, great care must be taken to protect that child from being exposed to the legal problems, which often place the parents at odds with one another
