Paralegal, Tania D. Selden
B.A., Criminal Justice – Seattle University
M.S., Criminal Justice – University of Cincinnati
I grew up with my family in North Seattle before moving to Sumner, WA at the age of 12 where I graduated from high school. I also enjoyed spending summers down in Bakersfield, CA with my father’s side of the family where I had some of my best childhood memories. After contemplating a few other career choices, I realized that the legal field was the right direction for me and strived to further my education in the field. I earned a B.A. in Criminal Justice from Seattle University in 2006 and a M.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Cincinnati in 2008. I joined the firm in 2011 after starting my career with the court system in 2006 as a court clerk with King County District Court and then in 2009 as a bailiff to a King County Superior Court Judge. I enjoy the personal level of interaction that working as a family law paralegal gives and the feeling of helping others in an area of life that is so meaningful and important.
Outside of work, I enjoy my most important roles in life as a mother to my incredible daughter and a wife to my wonderful husband. I also adore my sweet boxer, Lola and my two cats, Romeo & Chase. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, going to the dog park, playing with photography, home decorating, and enjoying the simple joys of life.
Paralegal, Jason Evans
B.A., Religion, University of Puget Sound
I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Tacoma, Washington to attend college. I earned a degree in comparative religion and philosophy and have remained in Cascadia ever since.
I joined the DuBois Cary Law Group (née DuBois Law Firm) in 2007. It is an exciting time to work in family law as our society and polity adapt to rapidly evolving notions of identity, relationships, communication, and place. I am particularly proud to support our LGBT clients and their families through difficult and exciting periods of transition. And I am here because Amanda and Monica have cultivated a professional environment that is almost literally effervescent with positivity, support and intelligence.
I am an avid cook, a member of a local alt-country band, and am learning the ins-and-outs of digital filmmaking. (I should probably read more, exercise regularly, and call my parents more often.) I live in Seattle with my partner and two cats, Fitz and Bruno.
Paralegal, Rachel Nevin
B.A., Social Science
I was born in Western Washington but grew up in Mississippi after my family relocated when I was eight years old. After moving back to Washington over ten years ago with my two children, I went back to school and received a paralegal certificate from Renton Technical College, an Associate’s degree in criminal justice from Bellevue College, and a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science with an emphasis on psychology and criminal justice from WSU. As soon as I started working in the field of family law I fell in love with the personal element of helping real people with real problems. I have enjoyed a career in family law ever since, and have been a family law paralegal for eight years. I remain a passionate advocate for my clients as they work through what is often one of the most difficult times in their lives.
Outside of work, my focus is on my two teenage kids, and our 11 year old Boston Terrier/Pug mix, Pepper. My son is a talented athlete who keeps our social calendar full with his games; my daughter is a great writer and author. I couldn’t be more proud of them. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, taking walks, and watching The Golden Girls.
Paralegal, Madeleine (Maddy) DuBois
B.A, Communications, Fordham University
I was raised in Shoreline and Seattle, graduating from Holy Names Academy in 1999. I then moved to Bronx, NY to attend college. After college, I moved back to Seattle and have lived here since (albeit short stints in Los Altos, CA and New York, NY). I have 7 years of family law paralegal experience. I have always felt the need to advocate for those who are under-served.
I am an avid sports fan and enjoy reading and hanging out with friends. I am also the owner of the cutest dog ever, Seoul.
