Kathryn Silk is an experienced family law attorney with a passion for the collaborative approach. After graduating from the University of Washington School of Law in 2010, she moved to Wenatchee where she practiced law, was on the board of the Domestic and Sexual Violence Center, served as the President of the local Young Lawyers Division, and volunteered for Attorney Services in family law. She has a history working at Family Law CASA in King County and at the King County Bar Association Family Law Neighborhood Clinic. Most recently, she practiced family law at the Ivy Law Group before joining Elise Buie Family Law Group in October, 2016.
Kathryn Silk has extensive trial and courtroom experience, but understands that the best approach often requires taking the decision making power out of the hands of the bureaucracy and placing it back into the hands of her clients. She is trained in mediation and negotiation, and holds a mediation skills certificate from the University of Washington School of Law. Kathryn strives for an outcome that will work best for all parties involved. She believes strongly in working with her clients to educate them about the legal process and empower them in making the best decisions for their future.
In her free time, Kathryn Silk chases after her two wild young daughters and rides horses. She enjoys travel: she has lived abroad in France and Argentina and traveled extensively in Europe and South America. She loves cooking, gardening, yoga, running half-marathons, hiking with her Britney Spaniel, drinking copious amounts of tea, and spending time at her parent's farmhouse on Vashon Island.
She is bilingual in Spanish.
