Miryana Gerassimova chose the practice of family law in order to help people.
Her goal has always been to make a real, genuine difference in her client’s lives.
“I first meet my clients when they feel their lives are falling apart,”
says Miryana. “My job – which I find very rewarding –
is to help them through that time and to get them the results they need
so they can have a happier life going forward.” Whether crafting
an effective parenting plan or child support order, she works to protect
her clients’ futures.
“I don’t just focus on my clients’ immediate problems
– those that brought them to my office. Rather, I provide them with
the tools they need to be successful and happy after their case is over.
The goal is to keep them from returning to court over the same issues.”
Miryana focuses her practice on divorce, child custody, child support modifications,
and relocations. She is also particularly passionate about helping clients
who are affected by domestic violence.
Before becoming a family law attorney, Miryana interned with the Pierce
County Prosecutor's Office and worked as an extern for both the Thurston
County Prosecutor's Office and the City of Tacoma Prosecutor's Office.
In law school, she served on both Seattle University's Moot Court Board
and the Dispute Resolution Board. Miryana also received the National Honorary
Award of The Order of the Barristers, an honor granted to the top ten
graduating students who have excelled in oral advocacy.
Miryana is a first-generation immigrant who moved to the U.S. from Bulgaria
as a child. That experience taught her how to be extremely adaptable and
to work hard to be the best at what she does. On her days off, Miryana
loves to explore the Pacific Northwest with her King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
