I find the world of family law fascinating and appreciate all its complexities from both a human and legal standpoint. I love advocating for our clients. It is inspiring to see clients come to us at one of the most difficult transitions in their lives only to emerge stronger and more empowered than ever. It is a tremendous transformation to behold and be a part of.

I was born and raised in Toronto, ON, Canada, and proudly come from a family of immigrants. I cherish my Canadian roots and deeply appreciate my Korean heritage.

I moved to Seattle on an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Washington and play for the UW Women’s Golf Team. I studied History and Political Science while travelling the country and competing in NCAA Division I tournaments.

Shortly after graduating from UW, I attended Lewis & Clark College, Northwestern School of Law in Portland, OR. As a law student, I was fortunate to experience a wide range of legal practices and develop my legal advocacy skills. I worked at the Washington State Attorney General’s Office for two summers and, in my last year of law school, externed with judges at King County Superior Court where I worked on juvenile and family law matters.

Not long after passing the bar, I connected with DCLG partner and fellow Lewis & Clark alum, Monica Cary. I instantly fell in love with the spirit of DCLG and worked as a contract attorney here for several months. I then completed a one-year judicial clerkship at the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division II. There, I assisted in drafting numerous published and unpublished judicial opinions and was exposed to a multitude of legal issues, criminal and civil. Upon ending my clerkship, I returned to DCLG and dove back into the world of family law.

In my spare time, my partner and I enjoy exploring independent breweries and new eateries, playing golf, rooting for the Mariners and the Seahawks, and spending time with family, friends, and our sweet, Lab-mix rescue pup.

    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.
