At Emery Law and Mediation Services, we firmly believe that a comprehensive estate plan allows you to confidently and comfortably protect those you love, whatever may come.

We’re parents as well as professionals, and bring our breadth of experience, knowledge, patience, and passion to our work serving clients —  in all walks of life.

When conflicts arise, in everyday life or during the probate of an estate, we firmly believe that mediation — facilitated by a skilled, experienced and compassionate mediator — offers the single most effective approach for meaningfully resolving those conflicts.

Services We Provide

Mediation Services

Resolving issues is hard on everyone. It takes a great deal of time and effort as well as money to properly prepare a case for trial in the event of disagreements.

Mediation can help you sort out what is most important long term to you and determine what are the areas where you can compromise or let go.

Estate Planning

We firmly believe that a comprehensive estate plan allows you to confidently and comfortably protect those you love, whatever may come.

Our approach is flexible, and we have found that estate planning is not one size fits all.

Meet Paula

I’ve been working for more than 20 years as a lawyer, advocate, mediator, nonprofit leader, and business professional. As a person, partner, parent, and professional of privilege, I am deeply committed to helping individuals and families from all walks of life prepare for and get through major life events with compassion and dignity.

I serve as a King County Small Claims Court mediator in Kent and Seattle and as Vice Chair of the King County Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Section.

Located in the Old Rainier Brewing (ORB) space, we’re a family-friendly office designed around an environment that is welcoming to families with young children. As parents ourselves, we know how hard it can be to find mid-day childcare to meet with an attorney or mediator and we can usually accommodate your child or children for routine meetings and will-signing ceremonies.

Our goal is to demystify estate planning by raising and addressing the myriad of concerns that you may want to plan for in a direct, respectful, and clear way. Just as no two families are alike, but share many characteristics, estate planning is both an individual and a collective endeavor.
