Caitlin L. Fellows
As an attorney, my goal is to provide clients with more effective counsel that understands how legal decisions affect different aspects of their lives. I think that it is important that attorneys are experienced in the world outside of law so that we can better appreciate how what we do in the courtroom or conference room impact our clients. In addition to law, I have a background in education and experience working in the education system. Beyond the general practice of Family Law, I am particularly passionate about child advocacy and helping families to develop parenting plans and parenting arrangements that truly support the best interests of their children.
Prior to working in Washington State, I practiced in Minnesota, where I graduated from law school and took the bar exam. While practicing in Minnesota, I started working in criminal court and juvenile court for both the Public Defender's Office and the County Attorney's Office, and additionally supported dependency and parental rights cases. I moved out to Washington State in 2017 to be closer to my family (who had moved out here over the years) and to experience living near the mountains.
Outside of law, I enjoy staying active, and I like to spend as much time outside as possible. I especially love hiking, backpacking, biking, running in the woods, skiing, and going on adventures with my English cream golden retriever named Sherlock.
