Jody Cloutier

Lawyer and ex-Senior Manager, Microsoft
After a decade and a half in technology, Jody studied law and founded his own law firm. Working with domestic violence survivors he witnessed how difficult the law could be for people to navigate. He also noticed that, all too often, the client was treated more as a transaction and not with the level of care they deserved. Jody's vision was to provide people with reasonably-priced, compassionate, and competent legal representation for a wide-range of family law issues. He uses the skills he learned in the technology industry to reduce costs, lower conflict, and, hopefully, to make the most stressful time a little less stressful. Jody is a frequent speaker on family law topics at Seattle University School of Law, and he is also a member of the Washington State Bar Association Court Rules Committee.
