Family Law Attorney Paige D. Haley
Attorney Paige Haley says she was prepared since childhood to practice family law. Paige was adopted at birth and her mother remarried twice, giving Paige two stepfathers. "I don't view my history as negative," she says. "My family is very close, and I've experienced many of the situations my clients have experienced. Sometimes clients feel shame about what they are going through. I tell them, 'I've not only heard it before - I've lived it.'" Paige also chose family law because it reaches people on such a personal level. "This is about people's lives," she says simply.
Paige handles divorce, child custody, child support, and related matters. Paige takes pride in offering sound, realistic advice so her clients enjoy the best possible outcome to their cases. When court action is needed, she offers a strong, vigorous presence in court, backed by a depth of knowledge and experience. In one recent, complex case, a mother with primary custody of the parties' child sought to relocate to another county in bad faith. Paige won primary custody for her client - after a yearlong battle - while objecting to the relocation. The client calls Paige "dynamic in court," praises her perseverance and determination, and thanks her for everything.
Paige graduated from Law School in 2001. Paige earned her J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she graduated cum laude. She keeps her skills sharp through myriad continuing legal education seminars. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Women's Studies from the University of Washington.
