Welcome to TERPIN LAW, PLLC, a general practice law firm.


Family Law.  I’ve been practicing family law for my entire career as an attorney and have worked on every type of case you can imagine.  From divorces (dissolution of marriage) to child support adjustments, I’ve helped to resolve even the most complex cases.  

Premarital Agreements.  Prenuptial Agreements, Community and Separate Property Agreements, Postnuptial Agreements… we have you covered.  

Estate Planning.  Have you executed a Last Will and Testament?  Have you organized your Estate and planned for your family’s future?  Whether you are leaving a legacy for your heirs, or protecting or transferring assets during your lifetime, I’m here to discuss your options and to help you find creative solutions for your family’s specific needs.   

Visas. Whether you would like to visit, study or work in the United States, I’ve helped can help you obtain the visa you need to travel. Contact me today to schedule a free consultation to find out how I can help you travel to the United States.

Permanent Residence. Obtaining legal residence in the United States is a complicated and nerve-wracking process. I would be happy to help walk you through it, and answer even your most difficult questions.

Personal Injury. Please come talk to me about your case if you have been injured in a car accident or in any other type of accident. My consultations are free and this stuff is really confusing and even scary! I hope I can help explain some things and also help you find out if you might be entitled to some damages for someone else’s negligence. I’ve done a lot of personal injury cases in Washington and I’d like to use my experience to help you with yours.

DUI and Criminal Misdemeanors. And traffic tickets. I’m very sorry that you found your way into criminal court with charges filed against you (or maybe you’re still trying to avoid that). I’ve helped a lot of people through their DUI charges and other misdemeanor misfortunes and I’d like to help you with yours. I set myself apart from the other criminal defense attorneys because I’m practical but clever, and I’m a regular person, just like you, so I “get” it.
