seattle divorce lawyerA dedicated, experienced divorce lawyer, Colleen Hartl has a varied background that gives her a legal perspective like few other local attorneys. She’s a staunch advocate and a valuable resource for her clients in the Western Washington area in divorce, custody, and other family law cases.

Colleen has worked on the law from every angle, serving as both a prosecuting attorney and as well as focusing on criminal defense. She has also served as a municipal court judge in King County.

Her extensive practice has allowed her to hone her skills in all areas a case may take her and to develop a deep understanding of the court process. Adept in dispute resolution and mediation, she has a wide-ranging track record in trial and is equally comfortable in a conference room as in the courtroom.

Talking about Colleen, managing attorney, Ken Alan, says, “A critical, creative thinker, Colleen’s experience and expertise shines through and clients recognize right away they’re in good hands.

Colleen earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, where she majored in French. From there, she went on to earn her Juris Doctor at Seattle University School of Law.

Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her pups, Charlie and Niko, and actively relishing the great Pacific Northwest by hiking, kayaking, and biking.


We wish to express our gratitude to you for your recent legal assistance to our daughter. When she was having her difficulties and had nowhere else to turn, you were there for her providing not only quality legal assistance, but also understanding her plight, and giving her nurturing and encouragement, as a close friend would.

Thank you for all you have done. Sincerely.

– Bill
