Archer Price, PLLC

A Half-Century of Combined Experience in Washington Family Law and Business Law


Our Values

Archer Price prides itself on providing quality legal representation. We've handled thousands of matters; our top reviews and reputation speak for itself.  Our office is located in the heart of Ballard, in one of Seattle’s most historic neighborhoods.

We don't say "yes" to representing every client that walks through the door; instead, we select our clients based on their case and needs, and whether we believe our firm will provide the best representation possible for their matter.

Many of our clients are high net worth individuals who hail from Microsoft and are ARAG Plan Members.

Archer Price requires our employees to hold a degree from a top national university or to have achieved academic honors from a Washington institution of higher education (or both). Because of our emphasis on quality, we focus only on Washington and federal law to ensure that our firm and our clients enjoy every possible strategic advantage. Ultimately, we believe that quality matters more than quantity—particularly when it comes to law.
