My clients are dealing with a lot of stress. I can help mitigate those worries and, ultimately, achieve an outcome that allows them to move forward in a positive way.
Shayla McKee

Those who work with Shayla McKee, clients and colleagues alike, are consistently impressed by the drive and compassion she shows in her practice of family law.

Shayla started down her path into family law in the WSU Mock Trial Team during her last year in college, where she won an award in every competition she attended, including an All-Region Attorney award that set her apart as one of the best student attorneys in the Northwest. Shayla then headed across the country to the Northeast, where she completed law school and clerked for the lead matrimonial judge in Essex County, NJ.

Shayla returned to Washington State to dedicate her practice to family law, an area of law she believes can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

“So many areas of law are driven by profit, not people. I want to make a difference for those who are often going through the most trying time of their lives,” says Shayla. “My clients are dealing with a lot of stress. I can help mitigate those worries and, ultimately, achieve an outcome that allows them to move forward in a positive way.”

Before each case, Shayla first works with her clients on the big picture – understanding the situation completely to see the final results they wish to achieve. Then she begins the meticulous strategy and work necessary to meet those goals.

Shayla works in our Everett office and focuses her practice on divorce and custody cases, as well as child support and parenting plan modifications. She also has a special interest in cases involving domestic violence, LGBT issues, and cases involving adoption and assisted reproduction. She is committed to serving her community and promoting equity in the practice of family law.

Outside of work, Shayla is a self-professed bookworm who loves nothing more than curling up with a good book and a cup of tea. She is also an avid Game of Thrones fan, and can tell you just about everything there is to know about the world of Westeros. She also speaks fluent French.
