My goal is to guide my clients through this very personal and difficult transition in such a way that they feel their voice has been heard and their goals were met.
Christine Hayes

Attorney Christine Hayes earned her law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law, where she graduated magna cum laude. With previous experience as a legal advocate for victims of domestic violence at Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, Christine understands the positive impact that a strong legal advocate can have on people’s lives when they are faced with the legal system. She aims to offer her clients peace of mind during an emotionally trying time. “My goal is to guide my clients through this very personal and difficult transition in such a way that they feel their voice has been heard and their goals were met,” she says.

Christine’s practice focuses on divorce, child support, child custody, relocation, and modifications. She is also experienced in the areas of LGBT family law, stepparent adoption, non-parental custody, de facto parentage, and collaborative law.

With a focus on providing personalized service, Christine tailors strategies to fit her clients’ unique needs. Whether her clients want to take an aggressive stance or a collaborative approach to their legal matter, she helps clients define and refine their goals in pursuit of the outcome they seek.

“I listen carefully to my clients,” says Christine. “We work to balance their emotions with the need to develop an effective strategy, well supported in the law, to achieve the best results for their case. I want my clients to be assured that they can depend upon me to alleviate their fears and concerns, such that they can focus on successfully transitioning into a new chapter of their lives.”

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Christine loves camping and exploring the outdoors with friends and family. She is also an avid Seahawks fan and enjoys spending time with her husband and their dog, Riley.
