A Word About Forrest and His Practice
Forrest has been practicing in Thurston County since 1986, emphasizing family law and criminal defense. Over the course of his career, not only have his substantial litigation skills been finely honed in the crucible of the courtroom, but his approach to the practice of law has been enriched with wisdom, common sense, and a zeal for justice of which his clients have been the fortunate beneficiaries. Forrest brings to his craft a thorough knowledge of the law and a passionate commitment to quality in the three areas that matter most--performance, product and service.
Forrest's unique signature skill is his capacity to communicate, both in courtroom argument and in the equally important written word. He has learned that the key to the effective practice of law can be boiled down to a single word--communication. The written and spoken word is the coin of the realm in the practice of law, and Forrest always delivers on behalf of his fortunate clients.
While he relishes a good argument and enjoys the rough and tumble of the courtroom, Forrest also appreciates that lawyers always get to walk away from the wreckage left in the wake of litigation. He understands that children and parties are generally better served if they can avoid the rancor of litigation. Therefore, Forrest strives to assist the parties in reaching equitable agreements to resolve their legal problems.
Unfortunately for many family law clients, their only shot at justice requires that they fight for it. That is a fight Forrest is always ready for.
