Compassionate Advocacy

Mindy Carr has moved her family law practice to Skellenger Bender.

Mindy Carr is a family law attorney practicing in King and Snohomish Counties. She has experience in family law, dependency law, and criminal defense at several successful private law firms and non-profit organizations in Seattle and Everett. Her experience with criminal defense and dependency cases informs her family law practice, especially in high-conflict cases involving allegations of child abuse. Mindy’s training in psychology (B.A. at Rice University, with honors; first year of Ph.D. program in clinical psychology) prepared her well to guide, comfort, and empower clients through the stressful and emotional challenges of family law cases. Mindy’s compassion for her clients, tenacity, feisty personality, and excellent writing skills make her a zealous advocate in court.

Mindy is trained in the collaborative method of divorce as well as mediation, which allow her to reach favorable settlements for many clients who hope to avoid the stress and cost of motions and trial. Mindy is also trained as a Title 26 guardian ad litem, which helps her advise clients on what to expect as they work with a guardian ad litem.

Mindy donates time each year to pro bono work such as amicus work in support of parental rights, a clemency petition for a prisoner serving a life sentence (who was granted a conditional pardon), and several special cases where litigation was necessary to correct injustice. In her spare time, Mindy spends time with her husband and daughter doing all things outdoorsy.

Client Testimonials/Reviews:

Best lawyer in Snohomish county!

I have a VERY high conflict parentage case with my ex. I had consulted with many attorneys prior to speaking with Mindy. All of which stated that they did not feel like they were capable of handling my case. Until Mindy. She was right on my case within an hour! She spent endless nights and even weekends to review my case and represented not just myself in court, but always had my child’s best interest at hand. She is VERY thorough and VERY efficient with her time and billing. She is immensely compassionate about the families she represents and is very involved in trying to help the entire “family dynamic” even in high conflict cases. Her entire team are total rockstars and know the laws like the back of their hands. She is very well and soft spoken, yet very “go getter” attitude and will stop at nothing to seek justice. She had even offered to mediate with my ex and help him understand court rules, documents etc. I would recommend her to ANYONE in a heartbeat.

Amazing choice for dads during divorce:

Mindy was the 4th attorney to take on my divorce and first to actually get the job DONE. She accurately estimated time, risks involved and amount of cost was always in the ballpark she said it would be. She was incredibly great to work with and resolved my case with a fair outcome through mediation.

Greatest Decision I ever made!! HIGHLY RECOMEND!!!

I am SO HAPPY I chose Mindy. She is very caring and very knowledgeable! She worked her butt off on my case. I know without her I wouldn’t have my kids today! She is very attentive! Did an amazing job! I couldn’t be happier!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Supportive and sensitive to DV case issues:

Ms. Carr represented me through the initial stages of a dissolution case in which there were issues of domestic violence. She demonstrated sensitivity to these issues and took my concerns seriously. She brought many ideas to the table which I previously had not considered. The result was that I got the protections I wanted in place for myself and my children. Ms. Carr had my best interests at heart, which was exactly what I needed to get through a very difficult situation.
