Caroline F. Brinster

Caroline brings a deliberate focus to listening and understanding her client’s goals and concerns. Recognizing her role as a Family Law attorney is to help people navigate the legal system in pursuit of their goals as they relate to family and loved ones. Her greatest strength as an attorney is empathy and she believes that preparation and a sincere and concerted effort to understand a person’s hopes, fears, and goals—during what is often a difficult time in their life—is critical to being a great attorney.

When she’s not working, you’ll likely find Caroline in the great PNW outdoors; running hiking and Climbing Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and Mt. St. Helens. Her life motto was given to her by her favorite childhood character, the great Winnie the Pooh: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
