Welcome to TERPIN LAW, PLLC, a general practice law firm with a focus on family law and immigration law.  


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 think of.  From divorces (dissolution of marriage) to child support adjustments, I’ve seen it all.  Well, every time I think I’ve seen it all, I’m reminded that every case is unique, and that is why I am well equipped to handle your family law matter, whatever it might be.  Plus, because I am a solo practice attorney, your case will get the attention and care that it deserves.  

Immigration and Naturalization. I highly encourage all permanent residents to naturalize as soon as they are eligible to do so. In today’s climate, remaining a permanent resident carries too much risk. Please schedule a free consultation to find out if you are eligible to naturalize and let you know how I can help.

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.

Marriages and Green Cards. It can be difficult and complicated to obtain permanent residence for your husband, wife or same-sex partner. I have helped hundreds of couples obtain green cards so they can begin their lives together.

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 maybe 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. Besides family law, the ugly stuff. 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 can set myself apart from the other criminal defense attorneys because I’m practical but clever, and I’m a regular person, just like you. I get it.
