Assistant: Laurel Vitale
All aspects of family law, including dissolution of marriage, legal separation, parenting plans, child support, domestic violence, non-parent custody, and de facto parentage. Civil litigation.
After completing law school, Courtney served as a clerk for the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. She then practiced family law in Maryland, with an emphasis on assisting domestic violence survivors, until 2016, when she went on inactive status in Maryland and relocated to Spokane, Washington. Since returning to her hometown of Spokane, Courtney continued practicing family law, and has since expanded her practice to include other areas of civil litigation.
Courtney approaches her cases with a combination of legal diligence and creativity, encouraging parties to seek out resolutions that are satisfactory to all involved. Where agreements are not possible, she is a strong advocate, with experience litigating at trial and on appeal.
