You Can Expect More From Your Family Law Firm

The Law Office of Sophia M. Palmer has earned a reputation in the greater Tacoma area as a trusted resource in family law. We are proud of this reputation, and we seek to uphold it with each new client and case.

The firm was founded by Sophia M. Palmer, a veteran attorney and former president for the Family Law Section of the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association. Ms. Palmer’s vision was to assemble a team of attorneys and support staff that would give clients high-quality representation at affordable rates. We continually strive to bring maximum value to clients for each dollar they invest in their legal representation.

Along with our attorneys, we could not do what we do without our dedicated and talented support staff. You can learn more about the rest of our team by visiting our support staff page.

Fully Committed To Family Law. Fully Dedicated To Clients.

We believe that anything worth doing is worth doing correctly. We apply that philosophy to both our legal focus and our attention to client service. While many firms advertise a variety of practice areas, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on family law. We are passionate about this field of law and are proud to tell clients that we can help them with any family law issue they may be facing. We mean it when we say we offer comprehensive representation.

Our dedication is equally strong when it comes to client service. As in many professions, law firms can make more money by maintaining a high volume of clients and giving only minimal attention to each. This is not a tradeoff we are willing to make. Law Office of Sophia M. Palmer intentionally limits the number of clients we take on so that we can give each client the respect, attention and resources that they and their case deserve. If we are your attorneys, you can rest assured that you are among a select number of clients.

Continuing Support Through Appellate Work

On the pages of this site, you will find information on just about every family law topic. But clients sometimes need continuing support after their main issues have been resolved. That is why, in addition to helping you petition to modify court orders, we also offer representation in appellate work. If you believe a court ruling was made in error or otherwise decided unfairly, please contact our office to discuss the possibility of appealing the ruling.
