Taryn began her career as a bankruptcy lawyer almost ten years ago. Her practice includes reorganization, insolvency, receivership, work-outs, and bankruptcy and all related litigation. Taryn has litigated at the trial level and appellate level on behalf of her clients in a number of adversary proceedings and in consumer protection litigation. Taryn’s clients include individuals, business owners, and closely held corporations and businesses. Her breadth of experience in the area of bankruptcy and insolvency enables her to take a preventive approach when clients come to her at the outset of a problem. Taryn develops creative solutions to mitigate the impact or consequences when it becomes clear that a bankruptcy or receivership is the best course of action.
Taryn works closely with each client to understand both their immediate pressure points and their long-term goals and needs. With a background as a social worker, she takes a hands-on and comprehensive approach to problem solving, allowing her to provide the highest level of support and advocacy for her clients. While financial distress can be overwhelming for her clients, Taryn’s service ethic and commitment enables her to develop deep and lasting relationships with her clients, many of whom return to her in the future for additional business needs and planning.
Taryn is actively involved in a number of professional organizations. She is both a participating member and a board member of the William H. Dwyer Inns of Court, an organization comprised of judges, attorneys and law professors. She is also an elected member of the King County Bar Association’s Creditor Debtor Section and a member of the American Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Subcommittee. A believer in giving back to the community, Taryn is a volunteer for the King County Bar Association’s Debt Clinic. She was named a Rising Star by SuperLawyers from 2011 to 2016, and a Super Lawyer in 2017.
When not practicing law, Taryn enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is an avid skier and loves to take full advantage of all of the natural beauty and outdoor activities that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
