Managing Attorney

My background from growing up as a first-generation Chinese American helped shape me and how I practice law. I have a translational skill that makes my legal practice unique. At an early age, I helped my non-English speaking parents navigate cultural barriers that affected many aspects of their lives in the United States. As a result, I am dedicated to educating individuals and arming them with resources to make the best choices in their situation.

It is my goal to simplify the process for you. I will help you navigate through those uncomfortable topics and answer all your difficult questions. I will give you practical legal advice and weigh all the options with you.

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area with my large extended family. I am glad to call Seattle my home now. My partner and I love exploring the Pacific Northwest – camping, hiking, kayaking, and discovering all the many restaurants in the area with our two children. We love traveling as a family and learning about different cultures. Some of the amazing places we’ve traveled to include Indonesia, Turkey, Czech Republic, and Cuba.
