    Attorney Profile

    Gina Auter has received the preeminent “AV” peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell—the highest honor they award annually since 2013. She is highly rated for her experience handling complex high asset dissolution actions, as well as high conflict custody matters. She is collaboratively trained, which provides her with an additional skill set to assist clients seeking to address their actions in a non-traditional manner that places conflict resolution as a top priority. Ms. Auter is dedicated to providing a personalized approach to each case she handles. She has a demonstrated track record of resolving cases without the need for protracted litigation, but is a seasoned trial attorney who is prepared to litigate issues that cannot be resolved by agreement.  As a mediator she serves as a neutral who assists other attorneys and clients in peacefully resolving conflict. As an arbitrator, she is a final decision maker who determines the outcome of matters that cannot be resolved by agreement.  Her varied skills and experience allow her to provide creative solutions and personalized advice that is specifically tailored to each client. She is the Past-President of Family Law Section of the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association and currently serves as the liaison for that section to the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association.
