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 became 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 and Snohomish counties. Read more about our philosophy.

Since founding the firm, Carol has added several attorneys and staff members, bringing total employment in 2018 to 17.  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 and Krista Stipe.

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, with the help from other attorneys in our office, contributes to a column for the King County Bar Association Journal entitled “Family Matters”.
