Posted on June 04, 2012 02:30pm

SEATTLE — McKinley Irvin, one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest law firms focused exclusively on divorce and family law, announces the addition of Elizabeth Hoffman to its Seattle office.

Hoffman has practiced family law in King County since November 2008. Her experience includes advocating for individuals from a multitude of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. She has represented clients on uncontested adoptions, divorces (especially those that require the division of complex marital assets and debts), and difficult child custody matters.

Hoffman also successfully blogs on a wide variety of family law topics, including a recent seven- part series in which she discussed the court’s interpretation of best interests of the child standard.

“Elizabeth is a great asset to the firm. She brings a sharp intellect, empathy, and dedication to her clients—attributes which are of primary importance to us,” said David Starks, managing partner at McKinley Irvin. “We’re all looking forward to working with her.”

Hoffman earned her law degree from Seattle University School of Law, where she graduated cum laude, and her bachelor’s from Smith College Northampton, MA.

Hoffman is a member of the family law sections of the Washington State Bar Association and the King County Bar Association.
