Serving clients throughout King County and the surrounding areas of the Seattle metro region, Ms. Chin is passionate about helping families through their most difficult and emotional legal challenges, delivering compassionate, personalized attention to each client's case in order to significantly increase the odds of achieving the best possible outcome.

Dedicated to protecting her clients' rights and best interests, she advocates strongly on behalf of those she serves. Whether through litigation, mediation, arbitration or collaboration, she works hard to resolve her clients' conflicts involving divorce, child custody and support, property division, paternity matters and other aspects of marriage dissolution. Additionally, her law firm offers prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, orders of protection for domestic violence victims and representation to military and international families.

After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in business law from Washington State University in 2004, Ms. Chin obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Oregon School of Law in 2008. In 2009, the Washington State Bar Association admitted her to practice, and she honed her trial and negotiation skills with several legal practices in the area before establishing her own private firm in 2014.

In addition to being a special advocate for King County Family Law CASA, Ms. Chin is active in several professional legal organizations, including the family law sections for both the King County Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Devoted to her community as well as her practice, she currently serves on the board for Mentoring Urban Students & Teens, where she helps support underprivileged youth.
