Joyce S. Schwensen practices a variety of law areas in Seattle, Washington. The Law Offices of Joyce S. Schwensen helps clients with issues involving family law, small business law, real estate, and will and probate. Adoption, however, is an area that Joyce feels passionately about, and she works tirelessly toward helping families deal with the processes surrounding adoptions issues. Compassion and empathy characterize Joyce's personal attention that she fully gives to each client that faces personal family matters.

Family is very important to Joyce, and she lives in Seattle with her two children. Her education is also grounded in Washington, as she earned her BA in History from University of Washington. Working toward her JD at the University of Washington Law School was the next step, and she became licensed to practice law in 1984. In addition to founding her own law firm, she also established the Adoption Assistance and Homestudy Services in Washington to help birth parents reach adoptive parents. She has taught several continuing education classes on both adoption and real estate, and furthers her knowledge through her membership in both the Washington State Bar Association and the King County Bar Association.

Small business and real estate law can have big impacts on family's futures, and Joyce also dedicates her law practice to these areas. Businesses may face a variety of legal issues that can have major repercussions, from loan problems to even getting a business started properly. Attention to detail and experience in this area can be essential in making sure that all steps are handled thoroughly and precisely. Real Estate law can also include complicated legal processes, and an attorney with knowledge of the system can make all the difference. Joyce is careful to give each client the attention they deserve and help them through important situations with as little stress as possible.
