Scott Semrau tried his first murder case to a full jury while a student at Tulane Law School in New Orleans, earning the Phelps Dunbar Award for outstanding advocacy.  After graduating with honors,  Scott worked as a Public Defender for three years in Atlanta, Georgia, before starting The Semrau Law Firm.  He has litigated over 100 cases, and he has represented thousands of clients during his 20 years of practice. He is a Martindale Rated AV Lawyer and in 2019 he received the Super Lawyer Award.  Last year, Scott created the law firm of Divorce Litigation Partners to pursue his dream of practicing family law in a city he loves where “the skies are always blue”, in Seattle.

Scott and his wife, Cye, an outstanding photographer, live and work together in Ballard. They both enjoy mountain biking, backpacking, camping, and visiting with their children.  Recently Scott began mountaineering and this summer Scott plans to summit Mt. Adams, Mt Baker, and Mt Rainier.

Scott Semrau, Esq., Managing Partner   

Divorce Litigation Partners

Our law firm was born of the idea that people have important stories that need to be effectively told.  Divorce and custody disputes are personal and unique and emotional.  Giving a strong voice to the truth is where we start.  Family law lawyers go to court, so in addition to being detail oriented litigatiors, our lawyers never lose sight of the big picture and we’re the experienced and effective lawyer you want standing beside you when it is time to tell your side of the story. 

Our office is centrally located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. We practice Family Law in King and Snohomish Counties. Please find addresses and links listed below to the KIng County Courthouse in downtown Seattle and to the King County Courthouse in Kent, and to the Snohomish County Superior Court. 


Office hours are between 9 and 6 during the week, but our attorneys realize that your time is valuable, so we are often able to meet you earlier in the morning, or later in the evening, and occasionally during the weekend.
