About Ericka Kendall

Ericka Kendall journeyed into her law practice later in her career. Earlier, she worked as an animal behavior researcher and an office manager in a psychology practice. Through these roles, she developed her characteristic compassion and an ability to interact with individuals from all walks of life. This well-rounded background enriches her insights into cases and guides the advice she imparts to clients.

After graduating from Seattle University School of Law, Ericka served as a Deputy Prosecutor, honing her litigation skills and gaining invaluable experience handling a spectrum of legal matters. Known for her composed demeanor and remarkable ability to defuse tense situations, she was specifically chosen to handle some of the most delicate cases in the prosecutor’s office. Her capacity to listen to and connect with people is an asset in her family law practice.

“I was drawn to family law by my desire to help people in a personal and meaningful way, enabling individuals to resolve challenges that have kept them from moving forward.”

Ericka is an animal lover who has studied songbirds and volunteered for years at animal sanctuaries and wildlife rescues. She has two dogs and two cats. A professional musician who plays upright classical and electric bass, she performs with various local orchestras and a band. She also loves yoga and running.
