There is a moment in almost every case when a client realizes that they're not alone, that they have a team behind them. I love that moment.
Christina Smith

Christina is a goal focused strategic planner who believes strongly in results. A family law intern during law school and former public interest attorney, Christina returned to family law after practicing civil insurance defense law with Lee Smart for three and a half years.

"I am drawn to the opportunity family law affords to make a positive difference in someone's life. That means a lot to me," says Christina. "I build trust with my clients so we can work together to get the hard work done. Along the way, I provide as much relief and support as I possibly can."

Christina values a strategic approach to family law litigation. "We look for themes, building rational and compelling arguments." She says, "This is the best service I can offer my clients."

Christina practices from our downtown Seattle law office. With a strong record of successful litigation, Christina's strategic approach to family law serves her clients well. A straight shooter and an objective researcher, Christina cautions clients to keep focused on the goal at hand. "These are extremely emotional times for our clients. There aren't many things harder in life. When we go to the negotiating table, we like to show up calm, cool and collected, and ready to negotiate from a position of strength."
