About Our Firm

We Help Good People in Bad Situations

Founded in 1994 by Steven Amir Hemmat, a former DOJ Trial Attorney, The Hemmat Law Group (HLG) has served individuals, families, and parents throughout the Pacific Northwest for decades. We are a boutique law firm that handles all aspects of family law, including (but not limited to) divorce, child custody, dispute resolution, LGBTQ law, child abductions, domestic violence, international family litigation, and asset division. We make our trade serving those that the system has forgotten — both the abused and the wrongly accused.

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 Understand.

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

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.
