    Attorney Profile

    Family law matters often involve participants who are already dealing with issues of trust and trauma. Dragging their raw emotions through a contentious court battle is seldom what families want. Attorney Rachel Rolfs understands this, and her goal at the Tacoma, Washington, Law Office of Rachel Rolfs, P.C., is to seek the most positive method of dispute resolution possible to assist clients with family law issues.

    Ms. Rolfs journey in family law began with her work as a paralegal. This experience taught her quickly how much depends on the dedication and meticulous care an attorney gives to each client. She graduated cum laude from the Seattle University School of Law and was admitted to practice law by the Washington State Bar Association in 2005. Now, after more than 13 years serving families in their times of need, Ms. Rolfs is even more devoted to the best interests of her clients.

    Because more families are seeking alternatives to courtroom divorces, Ms. Rolfs believes strongly in collaboration and mediation. In fact, not only does she advocate for clients going through mediation, but she is also an experienced and effective mediator for couples who choose this gentler method to resolve their conflicts.

    Another way in which Ms. Rolfs strives to accommodate the needs of families is by providing legal advice when individuals decide to represent themselves in a divorce. Pro se divorce is often a more affordable choice, but the legal issues in family law court may be confusing and frustrating. Ms. Rolfs helps clients understand the process and complete the necessary documentation so they can maintain control of their cases.

    Ms. Rolfs serves as a pro term judge in the Tacoma family courts. She has earned the honors and praises of numerous professional associations, including an AV Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

    *AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies.
