Tacoma, WA – March 31, 2020 McKinley Irvin, the region’s largest family law firm, is now offering family law temporary order arbitration services.

As the courts are currently limiting and postponing temporary order hearings due to the Coronavirus, McKinley Irvin’s arbitration services offer another way to quickly obtain family law temporary orders that are enforceable by the court, without needing to schedule a hearing with the court.

Arbitrators Jamie R. Walker, Cameron J. Fleury, Kim Schnuelle, and Theresa R. Lorella will assist parties with obtaining temporary orders using the timelines for motions. However, the firm notes that arbitration has flexibility; if parties agree, timelines can be extended, or shortened.

In compliance with social distancing guidelines, temporary order arbitration will be held remotely via videoconference or teleconference for the safety of all participants.

“Arbitrating temporary orders is a new tool in the family law attorney’s toolbox to help represent clients and resolve temporary orders in an effective and timely manner during this unprecedented time,” says Fleury.

Fleury and Walker are partners in the firm’s Tacoma office and Schnuelle and Lorella are senior attorneys in downtown Seattle. They have extensive experience resolving complicated family law matters in a fair and equitable manner.

Temporary order arbitration is available for family law cases in Pierce, Kitsap, Snohomish, Thurston, and King counties. To learn more about McKinley Irvin’s arbitration services, visit
