Smriti Shukla

Law was my first love and my first career. Advocating for a worthy cause led me to becoming a lawyer.

Born and raised in India, I studied law at the University of Pune. I worked under one of the Additional Solicitor Generals (ASG) of India. We represented the government of India and I assisted the ASG in preparing for cases and hearings listed before the Supreme Court of India and Delhi High Court. 

After moving to the United States, I completed my LL.M. in Global Business Laws from the University of Washington School of Law and became a licensed attorney here. 

I was drawn to family law because I love helping clients navigate through the legal system during one of the toughest parts of their lives. I find it extremely rewarding to help people find the best possible solution with the least disruptions to their lives.

I knew DuBois Levias was a clear fit for me from the moment I met the team. My principles as an attorney closely align with the firm’s goals. At DuBois, I get to do what I love—helping clients during one of the toughest phases of their lives—while growing as a lawyer by working with a diverse team of excellent, experienced attorneys. 

This team goes above and beyond to provide the best service to clients—helping each person find a solution based on their personal needs. Together, we resolve family disputes amicably. At the same time, we don’t hesitate to litigate cases aggressively and efficiently when needed. 


In addition to my work with DuBois Levias, I’ve volunteered at the Snohomish County Legal Services and the Eastside Legal Assistance Program. I’ve represented several domestic violence victims in court and helped them obtain protection orders. 


Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, dancing, cooking, and trying new recipes. I love spending time with my family, especially with my almost two-year-old son.
