Before becoming an attorney, Chelsea Miller started out as a family law
paralegal and personnel officer in the Army National Guard. In each of
these positions, her role was as a guardian of people and their families,
ensuring they got the support and guidance they needed to protect their
best interests. This experience has made Chelsea not only a fierce family
law attorney, but has also given her detailed knowledge of the legal system,
which provides a strategic benefit to her clients.
Chelsea knows that any client facing a family law matter is rarely, if
ever, dealing with just one issue. She therefore approaches each client’s
case from a holistic point of view. Explaining how the process works and
making sure her clients understand exactly what is happening is also a priority.
“Even something that could seem simple has many different layers,”
says Chelsea. “Working with the whole person in mind will address
both the legal issues related to their case and the lifestyle issues they
are also experiencing. Understanding all of those complexities allows
me to provide a higher level of service and better results for my clients.”
Chelsea works with clients in a variety of family law matters, including
divorce, child custody and support, modifications, relocation, and military
family law. Her military experience gives her depth of knowledge of what
can and cannot be accomplished within the military unit, as well as how
those regulations interact with family law. She is also an accredited
attorney through the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
Outside of work, Chelsea is an active participant in volunteer legal services
in Pierce County and also devotes her time to veteran’s causes.
During her downtime, she enjoys reading, staying at home with her dogs,
or spending time with friends for a movie marathon.
