Most people agree that there is nothing more important than family, and Attorney Nicole Chafetz believes that too. She is committed to helping families work through and resolve problems so that they can quickly start the next chapter of their lives. Whether you’re fighting over the custody of your child with your former partner, you need to go through the proper legal processes to take your children out of state for a new job or you’re family is looking at adoption as a way to grow, Nicki is ready to help you.
For more than 25 years Attorney Chafetz has run her own law firm in the King County and Pierce County areas. A major part of her practice is child welfare, or dependency, cases and child custody matters. This is her passion and she has more than a decade of experience working to put families back together. She’s traveled throughout Washington State to represent parents fighting the DCFS, DSHS, CPS and the whole child welfare system. Nothing satisfies her as much as getting invited to the birthday party of a child who, on their last birthday, was in foster care but is now celebrating at home. She also handles divorce, separation, custody, child support and adoption cases.
Because of her commitment to excellence, detail to attention and thorough understanding of the law, Nicki has many clients return to her when they’re in need of other legal services. Satisfied clients say that she’s hard working, keeps them up-to-date every step of the way and treats them with compassion as they navigate this challenging time in their life. She’s proud to offer pay-as-you go retainers so that top-notch legal service is affordable to everyone. She is eager to work with clients from all backgrounds and her firm is proud to be LGBT-friendly.
