Divorce Cases

I know that going through a divorce is one of the most challenging matters than any person can face. Your concerns about moving forward with your life, preserving your property, establishing financial obligations between the parties, and having a wholesome relationship with your children is my focus. In the process of going through a divorce, one of the most important factors on your mind is what will happen to your children. I understand the importance of your children's safety, stability and happiness and I am prepared to put all of my experience to work for you, to ensure the right outcome.

Child Custody

Child custody cases involve the best interests of children with the goal that parents be allowed to foster and grow a healthy relationship with their children. I have represented parents in hundreds of such cases.

Non-Parental Custody

Washington law allows in cases where the birthparents are considered unfit, for third parties, such as grandparents, to seek custody of children. I represent third parties seeking such orders, as well as parents seeking to prevent such orders.

Paternity Cases

A paternity case establishes a man's rights and responsibilities as the father of his children. Most paternity cases involve a man who wishes to find out if he is the biological father of a child, and they are used in cases where child support or child custody is in question between parents who are unmarried. I provide representation for men and women in paternity cases.


Adoption cases seek to terminate the parental rights of one person, while establishing a new, legal parent-child relationship for another person. Often, step-parents will seek to establish such rights for the children they have raised. I represent people in all aspects of adoption matters.

Due to the sensitive and personal nature of many family law cases, restraining orders are sometimes necessary for the protection of property, children, and the adult parties involved in the case. Alan J. Tindell assists in filing for restraining orders for your safety.

Criminal Law

A former public defender, Alan Tindell is also available to represent clients facing district court criminal charges such as Domestic violence, 4th degree assault, and Drivers' License suspension charges.
