While in law school, Ms. Dow worked in the Legal Aid Clinic as an intern with the Indian Wills Project on the Coeur d’Alene reservation. She also worked as a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) through the Coeur d'Alene tribal court. Following law school, Ms. Dow has worked extensively with Law Advocates – a legal aid organization in Whatcom County. She practiced strictly family law, assisting clients with pleadings, doing legal research, consulting, and generally sorting through complex family law issues and identifying legal solutions.
Ms. Dow chose a career in the law with the simple goal of helping people – something she has done consistently since obtaining her law degree. Prior to law school, Ms. Dow spent a decade working in corporate and small business administrative services and another decade enjoying people and plants with a career in horticulture. Her life experiences of living and working with people from different cultures and socio-economic circumstances, her educational focus in law and cultural diversity, and her experience working in legal aid services have given her a unique perspective on the practice of law. This unique perspective has given her a preference for the facets of law that deal with human relationships. Ms. Dow brings a depth of experience and a commitment to compassionate problem-solving to the practice of law.
