Knowing my clients and their hopes and plans for the future is paramount to resolving the case in their favor.

Margaret Fairfield

Family law attorney Margaret Fairfield focuses her practice on divorce matters involving significant assets, and on cases with difficult parenting issues, such as addiction and mental health concerns.

Margaret prides herself in knowing a client’s case from top to bottom, which she believes is an important key to success. “Knowing my clients and their hopes and plans for the future is paramount to resolving the case in their favor.”

Margaret is especially passionate about ensuring the safety and well-being of children, figuring out how to divide assets to maximize the benefits to her clients, and planning for families that do not fit a traditional mold.

In addition to her own practice, Margaret also works with Janet A. George on high asset, high profile dissolution and parenting disputes.

Prior to practicing family law, Margaret interned for the Honorable Timothy M. Burgess of the US District Court for the District of Alaska, as well as for the Northwest Federation of Community Organizations (now Alliance for a Just Society), the Northwest Women's Law Center (now Legal Voice), and the Center for Reproductive Rights. While in law school, she also served as a domestic violence advocate in Dorchester District Court.

A native of Alaska, Margaret attended Bucknell University, where she majored in Music, with a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies.

When not working, Margaret enjoys dancing (mostly Lindy Hop) and singing in a choir. She also loves the outdoors and spends as much time as she can hiking and cross country skiing.
