Joyce Schwensen has built a thriving law practice in Washington State.  She is well respected by her peers and is highly experienced in adoption law and non-parental custody cases.  She began her law practice in 1984 handling high value real estate transactions and cases. When she moved into her solo practice in 2001, Joyce took on more diverse legal cases. This transition coincided with her adoptions of two wonderful children. This blending of passion and knowledge led Joyce to counsel many individuals and couples about how to build their families through adoption.

During the course of her legal career, Joyce Schwensen has helped many families build their families through domestic adoptions, step-parent adoptions, non-parental custody cases, and using assisted reproduction.

Joyce Schwensen also advises non-traditional families and unmarried couples regarding the specific legal issues they may encounter as they build their families.
