Washington LGBT Family Lawyer

At McKinley Irvin, we believe that every family is unique and special, and that everyone deserves access to outstanding legal representation regardless of their sexual or gender orientation. We know that nothing is more important to you than your family, no matter how you define it. As Washington's premier family law firm, we are passionate about equal justice and fair treatment for all members of the LGBT community.

In fact, our firm has advocated for relationship and marriage equality since our founding. Attorneys at McKinley Irvin were among the first to provide education and guidance for lawyers and judges when both the Domestic Partnership statute was passed and when marriage equality became the law in Washington.

We support prominent LGBT organizations, including the LGBT Bar Association of Washington Foundation (QLaw Foundation) and its sister organization, the QLaw Association, Lifelong Aids Alliance, The Human Rights Campaign, Equal Rights Washington, and Legal Voice, formerly called the Northwest Women's Law Center.
