About Kim Schnuelle
Kim Schnuelle is an experienced, strategic negotiator and litigator who focuses on complex child support, paternity, judicial enforcement cases, and divorce in Seattle and King County.
Kim obtained her law degree in 1992 from the University of Washington School of Law. Upon graduating, she accepted a position in the Family Support Division of the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, where for nearly 17 years, she negotiated and litigated thousands of cases, and assisted a countless number of families and individuals in resolving their family law matters.
Kim always puts her clients first, and never loses sight of the human aspect of each case. She dedicates herself to providing each client with exceptional legal service tailored to their individual needs.
"Clients facing family law litigation are living through one of the most stressful periods of their lives. As an attorney and advocate, it is my role to reduce significant legal stress in their lives by actively listening to their desired goals and then implementing those goals into a strong, well prepared and effective case strategy."
Kim's sense of compassion is the driving force behind her dedication and commitment to each case and she works alongside each individual to understand their specific goals. She enjoys the challenges of litigation and working with each client to achieve successful outcomes.
"Depending upon the individual situation, subtle negotiation, forthright advocacy in litigation, or a mixture of the two may be required. Each case is unique and requires an approach perfectly tailored to the individual client and their situation."
In her spare time, Kim has employed her strong Spanish-speaking skills by volunteering with the King County Bar Association's Bilingual Spanish Legal Clinic. Since 1985, Kim has volunteered with AIDS projects in both California and Washington, including the Necessities of Life Program in Los Angeles and the Lifelong AIDS Alliance in Seattle.
Kim is also an avid hiker, certified yoga teacher, and loves traveling with her husband and son. She has visited much of Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. She has a soft spot for animals, especially horses and dogs.
