ABOUT CHRISTY CARPENTER
I am a 1989 graduate of the University of Washington, and earned my paralegal certificate in 1994. I worked as a paralegal from 1995 through 2017, nearly all of those years in family law. I was a member of the State of Washington’s 2013-2014 inaugural class of legal technician students, passed the very first LLLT Bar Exam in 2015, and became licensed as a Limited License Legal Technician in 2016.
My experience as a family law paralegal has run the gamut when it comes to the clientele that I have served. I began working in the legal services field in 1995, assisting low-income clients in completing their own family law actions. I went on to work with modest-income clients with moderate assets. I spent most of the last 15 years of my paralegal career working with clients who had accumulated significant wealth and assets.
I am very proud to now have the opportunity to use my extensive family law experience to assist those who could never afford to hire an attorney. I look forward every day to helping clients navigate through the paperwork and the court rules and procedures to obtain just results in their cases.
I consider myself to be a Washington native, having lived here since 1980, and in the South King County area, in particular. I have the typical Northwesterner’s appreciation of all things outdoors and canine, especially gardening and my rat terrier companion, Leo.
