Press Release: Baumgarten Law Office Welcomes New Associate to the Firm

Baumgarten Law Office announced today that University of Idaho College of Law graduate Christine Dow has joined the firm.

“We are extremely excited to begin working with Christine. Not only is she an excellent attorney with a wealth of real-life experience, she will complement our current practice by allowing us to offer expanded services to our clients,” said Luke Baumgarten, principal. “By hiring Christine, we will now be able to accept more family law and civil cases in addition to expanding our footprint beyond Whitman County to all of our neighboring counties.”

Prior to law school, Christine spent several years working closely with executives at two major corporations developing office support functions and generally ensuring that organizations with several hundred employees ran smoothly. Eventually, Christine left the corporate world to pursue her passion for gardening by becoming a horticulturist. A relocation prompted her to begin taking classes at Western Washington University where she excelled in an academically intense program focused on law and diversity. Her success in this program earned her a scholarship and acceptance at the University of Idaho College of Law.

Since her admission to the Washington State Bar, Christine has worked extensively with Law Advocates – a legal aid organization aimed at assisting low-income individuals and families facing urgent legal problems. This position allowed Christine to solve a wide variety of complex legal issues – primarily in the area of family law. It is this experience in particular that will make Christine a valued employee at Baumgarten Law Office.

Located in Pullman, Washington, Baumgarten Law Office PLLC offers representation in criminal defense, family law, and general civil litigation. The firm may be reached at (509) 593-4370 or visited on the web at BaumgartenLaw.com.
