MY STYLE AS A LAWYER IS DIRECTED AND FOCUSED.
I spent my initial years after law school as a trial attorney at the Attorney General’s office, where I handled cases of child abuse and neglect. This work was challenging and rewarding, and in 2014, I was ready for a change and ready to move back to Seattle. I transitioned to private practice to learn personal injury law, and I immediately took to the practice. I love guiding my clients through the convoluted world of insurance; love advocating for people who deserve a fair shake at resolving their injury claims, and love protecting my clients throughout a process that can be unfriendly and confusing.
Recently, I joined my husband Andre at Dayani Law Firm. It is a joy to work with him in our joint mission of providing accessible and honest representation to those who need it.
My style as a lawyer is directed and focused. I work with singular purpose to resolve my clients’ injury claims, so they can concentrate on getting better and getting their life back. I work quickly and efficiently, my goal always being the best possible result for every client. I am communicative, responsive, and in a culture where many attorneys and insurance companies let cases sit, I never procrastinate and I get things done.
I love yoga and a good gin martini. My favorite thing is spending time with Andre in work and rest. We are always exploring around West Seattle where we live.
When I launched Dayani Law Firm in 2016, I knew exactly what I’d do as the founder: I’d speak directly to my clients, the same as how I’d talk with my friends: clearly and concisely, without the lawyer-speak we learned in law school. I’d work efficiently and save my clients a buck or two. I’d relate to my clients at the human level, be real with them, and defend them fiercely.
Before representing private clients, I was a public defender in King County where I represented thousands of people. I won numerous jury trials and testimonial motions. I am not afraid of a courtroom and people trust me when I speak because I speak from my heart.
I left public defense to launch Dayani Law Firm, knowing I could better serve and protect my clients if I were in charge. Every day I am moved by this mission, to do right by my clients and protect them at all costs, no matter whether the opposition is the city government or a deep-pocketed insurance company.
I guide people through all forms of legal and personal crises. I operate differently than other attorneys through a philosophy that, at the core, we are all the same. I believe that with softness of heart, a person can deepen and thrive.
When I am not working, I am exploring the world with my beautiful wife and law partner, Lauren. I also practice film photography and compete in boxing. I like chatting about the universe, life passions, and love.
