Adam, Managing Attorney

LICENSED TO PRACTICE IN WASHINGTON STATE

Hi, I’m Adam. The complexity and structure of law are hugely appealing to me – that’s what brought me into the practice of law. The opportunity to team up with our clients in order to achieve their legal goals is immensely fulfilling, and it is what has kept me in the practice of law.

Supporting legal needs, ideas, and projects of our clients free them to focus on their own lives, work, and businesses. That matters to me as much as it does to them, which is why you will always find me with my feet on the ground (not up on a desk), whether we are advancing ideas, negotiating recovery, building business, or protecting the best interests of the child.

If you are ready for a refreshing take on your legal experience consider giving us a try. It is my promise that you will leave with an experience that is #IntentionallyDifferent.

Property Division

If you are going through a divorce or separation, Washington State law will divide your assets and liabilities in a “fair and equitable” – not necessarily equal – manner. Ultimately, either you and your spouse or a Judge will decide what that really means.

The truth is: trials are expensive! That is why we give emphasis on structuring property settlements in lieu of costly trials. Unraveling a marriage can be a roller coaster’s worth of ups and downs, but balancing financial interests, advising on hard decisions in plain English, and pushing forward towards an exciting new chapter in life is what we help our clients do.

Property settlement is not possible for everyone, though. If you are facing a situation where settlement is not an option, you also need a passionate advocate on your side. Our focus is your focus. Your situation is our situation and we pride ourselves on being vigorous advocates for our clients.

The factors that go into a fair distribution of assets and liabilities can include: (1) Financial needs; (2) Current income and income potential; (3) How long you’ve been married; (4) Ages of both spouses; and (5) Medical conditions that create a financial need – amongst others.

If you have questions about property division in your divorce or separation, Evergreen Law Office is always ready to help. Contact us today at 253-693-2244 to find out why we are #intentionallydifferent.
