Practice Emphasis

Maya Trujillo Ringe finds her work in family law to be a natural fit for her personality. She loves problem solving and understands the complexities—both legal and emotional—that come with practicing family law.

Maya is sensitive to her clients’ needs and considers herself and her client to be a team that works aggressively toward the best possible resolution. She regularly handles complex dissolutions of marriages with and without children, custody issues, parenting plan issues, and pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. Maya is an excellent negotiator but is also a strong advocate when it is clear that negotiation will not provide an equitable outcome for her client.  Her professionalism and dedication to quality work earned her recognition in the community and she was named as a Rising Star in 2010 through 2012 in Washington Law & Politics and was recognized as a Top Attorney by Seattle Met magazine in 2012.

While in law school, Maya had the benefit of exposure to various areas of law, interning at a major pharmaceutical company and as a law clerk to the honorable W.H. Dumont in the Civil Division of New Jersey. This diverse experience has served her well in her practice of law today. She was also a recipient of the Seton Hall School of Law Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship Award in 2000.

Fluent in Spanish, Maya spent a year in Spain and received her degree in Spanish Studies at the University of Salamanca. Prior to working at Lasher Holzapfel Sperry & Ebberson, Maya worked at Janet A. George, P.S.
