Our Firm

After practicing family law for more than 20 years, Seattle attorney Carol Bailey founded Carol Bailey & Associates in 2004 to help families avoid the additional conflict that many attorneys bring to divorce cases.

The Seattle family law practice is the only family law firm that offers Integrative Family Law, which helps clients avoid unnecessary conflict in divorce and other family law matters and focus on their long-term well being, not just on short term results. The firm helps clients in King, Snohomish, Skagit and Pierce counties. Read more about our philosophy.

Since founding the firm, Carol has added several attorneys and staff members, bringing total employment in 2014 to 15.  The firm became a partnership in 2013 and the name was changed from Carol Bailey & Associates, PLLC to Integrative Family Law, PLLC.  Along with Bailey the partners are Jennifer Forquer, Sharon Friedrich, Lisa DuFour and Paige Haley.

Bailey has been widely quoted in the media and has appeared on several television shows where she has talked about divorce and finding happiness. She also developed her own radio show on the Chat With Women network, and she blogs on the website of the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

Sharon Friedrich and Lisa DuFour, with help from other attorneys in our office, write a regular column for the King County Bar Association Journal entitled “Family Matters”.
