Washington Divorce Lawyer

"Mr. Bjornson quickly resolved a most difficult divorce while I was in the military and stationed in another state. My life is back to normal now."

- Capt. K. Graham

Welcome to my law firm web site.

My goal is to listen to clients and deliver effective and cost efficient high quality legal services, focusing on maximizing results either through mediation, negotiation or litigation, whichever is appropriate for the circumstance.  Many cases can be resolved amicably through settlement without a contested court hearing.

I offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your family law case at (253) 272-1434.

I have over 20 years of experience in Washington courts. 

Because there is often so much a stake in a dissolution, it is extremely important that your case is handled skillfully and professionally as attempting to correct mistakes at a later date can be very difficult and costly.


- Erik Bjornson, Esq.


My law office focuses exclusively on family law issues in order to maximize results for clients.

My areas of practice include Divorce, Child Support, Custody Issues, Parenting Plan .

I also represent clients who reside out of state with pending dissolution, divorce, or child support issues in Washington. 

In addition to representing civilians, I also represent active and retired members of the military. 

There are special issues and protective laws that must be considered for those in the military or who are retired from the military. Many clients have at one time been stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma.
