Jayde Y. Logan

From her earliest days as a law student, Jayde was drawn to the area of family law where she could help individuals faced with a family crisis. Initially Jayde considered practicing entertainment law. However, she discovered that family law is just as important but more fulfilling work. Having worked in family law both before and after graduating from law school, Jayde identifies with her client’s cases on a personal level. Jayde has extensive experience working with both low-income clients, as well as high asset dissolutions. She is able to empathize and understand the issues that her clients face. Jayde offers emotional support in a collaborative manner but also pursues aggressive litigation based on each client’s legal needs. Jayde exclusively practices family law and has experience with complex divorce litigation, parentage actions, and domestic violence. As the mother of two young boys, Jayde is especially passionate about cases involving children. She feels most gratified when she can advocate within the best interest of a child.

Originally from Denver, Colorado Jayde and her family lived moved to Washington State in 2017. Jayde attended New England Law, Boston on a full academic scholarship and graduated in 2015 with honors. While only licensed to practice law in Washington since 2017, Jayde began practicing family law as a certified student attorney in 2012. After graduating, Jayde served as a legal assistant to a family law attorney in Texas. Once Jayde and her family relocated to Washington, Jayde was recruited to work at the largest family law firm in the Pacific Northwest.  Thereafter, Jayde realized that her big law experience can better serve her passion for family law on a small firm scale.  Outside of the office, Jayde spends her time chasing her sons, trying new recipes, and traveling.
