Garrett Filetti is a family law attorney passionate about problem-solving with her clients and helping them navigate the often frustrating and emotional process of a divorce or custody case. Garrett’s approach to her clients’ matters focuses on minimizing conflict and helping establish successful co-parenting for the long term.
Philosophy and Background
Garrett practiced family law and estate planning for almost five years before joining the Elise Buie Family Law Group. Her mission is to ensure that at the conclusion of a case, both parents are invited to their children’s important life events and can attend and look their co-parent in the eye.
As a military spouse of more than eight years, Garrett also has firsthand knowledge about and experience with the issues that face military families, along with extensive experience dealing with military-specific issues in divorce and custody cases.
Garrett holds her B.A. in political science from Berry College in Mt. Berry, Georgia, and her J.D. and D.C.L. from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University.
Role in the Seattle Community
Garrett lives on Whidbey Island with her spouse and their five four-legged children. She is the current president of the Island County Bar Association and serves on the Island County Law Library Board, where she was nominated by superior court judge, Christon Skinner, to fill the seat left vacant by his election to the bench.
In her free time, Garrett enjoys being outside, hiking, camping, and backpacking, or just hanging out at the beach with her spouse and their two dogs. Garrett is almost always planning her next outdoor adventure. She is a self-described wannabe athlete and can often be found in the gym working on her squat, bench press, and deadlift, or out for a trail run.
