"I definitely feel good about the result of mediation. It was really, really difficult to have [the other side] make any concessions, but with [Monica] and Ashley's help . . . we got it done! [I] have run a few Marathons already. In Marathon, the term 'negative split' means the runner runs faster in the second half of the race than the first half. It is very hard to do. If life was a marathon, I would be right at the mid-point of the race, and the first half is already behind me. I know I can run the second half better and stronger, and maybe, I'll finish the race with 'negative split'.” ~Divorcing father of two.

I am originally from the San Diego, California area. My parents divorced while I was in high school, and my younger siblings and I were raised by our mother. Seeing the divorce process as a child gave me an understanding of the broader impact a divorce has on the entire family.

I graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2011 with a double major in International Relations and Spanish. After college, I worked as a receptionist and translator in a Workers Compensation law firm near Sacramento, California. This was my first real experience within the legal community, and I was hooked. I decided to attend Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, and I graduated in May 2016. While in law school, I worked for the Oregon Department of Justice in the Appellate Division. Later, I worked for Judge Rebecca Duncan in the Oregon Court of Appeals. I worked on a variety of cases, from criminal to civil to post-conviction. Most importantly, I learned how best to present my case to a judge through persuasive writing and oral argument.

DuBois Cary Law Group | Family Law &  Divorce Attorneys Serving Seattle, Bellevue & Redmond WA

I moved to Seattle in 2017 when my boyfriend became an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington. Shortly thereafter, I was lucky enough to become an Associate Attorney with DuBois Cary Law Group. At DuBois Cary Law Group, I get to combine my passion for legal advocacy with my personal experience growing up with a single mother. The result is a career that I can pour my whole heart into, and I feel good about what I do at the end of the day.

In my spare time, my boyfriend and I explore the local restaurants and natural beauty around the Seattle area. I am especially enjoying being back near the ocean—it reminds me of my childhood in San Diego. I love to cook, and the varying seasons here in Seattle give me a great excuse to try a variety of recipes.

    I don't know what I would do with out Lucia and Tania as my legal team. Lucia has been my lawyer for about 5 years. I would recommend her to anyone. She shows up for me completely prepared for the courtroom, is totally confident in her presentations and and is so knowledgeable. I can't thank them enough for all they have done.

    While my ex and I had an almost wholly amicable split we felt completely unqualified to fairly divvy up our assets. Monica--in a single meeting--looked at the money and helped us reach an agreement we both felt was more than fair. She was relaxed, professional, knowledgeable and efficient. Couldn't have asked for me. I highly recommend her.

    Michelle and Jason are not just extremely knowledgeable and efficient in family law, but also very caring and empathetic. Because of there experience and help, I have the schedule with my daughter I was fighting for and as a result can spend more time with her. Thank you both! I would highly recommend Michelle Fontenot to anyone in need of a family law attorney.
