Michael Chin

Attorney at Law

Michael is proud to serve the residents of Snohomish County and King County, Washington. He was admitted as a member of the Washington State Bar in 2009. Michael is also a member of the United States Federal Bar. Since that time he has practiced in the areas of family law, estate planning, business planning, and criminal defense. Additionally, Michael also is well versed in the areas of tax planning. It is most important to Michael that he earns and keeps his client’s trust, and provides effective and innovative representation. While no attorney can guarantee specific results, a loss will not be determined by his team’s passions or lack of effort.

Michael continues to coach football for the Irish and enjoys the challenge of coaching and mentoring young men. Michael also is the former head coach and teacher for the O’Dea Mock Trial Team.

While Michael was born in Atlanta, Georgia, he has been a resident of Washington from a very young age, attending high school at O’Dea, then law school at Gonzaga University. He also obtained a Masters in Tax Law from the University of Washington in 2010. Michael obtained his bachelor of arts degree in history and political science from Saint Mary’s (CA), graduating magna cum laude.
