About Us

We Help Good People in Bad Situations

The Hemmat Law Group (HLG) was founded in 1994 by Steven Amir Hemmat, a former DOJ Trial Attorney. We specialize in family law, supporting victims of the legal system.

The Hemmat Law Group has diligently served individuals, families, and parents in the Pacific Northwest for decades.

As a boutique firm, we possess extensive experience in family law, probate, civil litigation, and commercial real estate management.

Our firm prides itself in handling a wide variety of legal issues, problems, and cases. We routinely navigate contested & high asset divorces, international child abductions, support & alimony disputes, and much more.

We are painfully aware of the inequities in the legal landscape. We are intimately familiar with the challenges faced by members of the LGBTQ+ community, alienated fathers, abused spouses, and neglected children. Our team is committed to ensuring equal treatment, rights, and protections for our clients.

Values of Practice

We Execute Function Over Form.

We are ambitious, but not ruthless. High standards and integrity, but never sanctimonious. Being deliberate in our aggression is key to our client’s victory.

We Play the Long Game.

Attorneys and clients alike are victims of the same system. Sometimes, frustrating circumstances can tempt litigators to lash out in pointless and expensive anger. We never forget we are safeguarding our client’s families.

We Embrace Challenges.

We acknowledge case weaknesses. Our job as your counsel is to guide best outcomes. Sometimes, that means being honest about risks and concerns – because no situation is perfect.

We Build Success.

We are advocates. Not invaders. We litigate to build positive outcomes, not tear down relationships and institutions.

We Improve Access.

We offer flexible payment terms, fee financing, and retainer-less engagements to bring our services to as many people as possible. We keep costs in mind.

We Understand.

We’ve seen it all before, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care. Our team leads with empathy.

Compassionate Advocacy for Families: Protecting, Fighting, and Achieving Positive Outcomes

Our dedicated legal team recognizes that good people can find themselves in stressful or unpleasant situations. We pride ourselves in advocating on behalf of parents and families without judgment or reservation. Our goal is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our clients. We take a client-centered advocacy approach, fiercely fighting for justice while leveraging technology to maximize resources and obtain positive outcomes.
