Audrey is a bright, young attorney who is passionate about helping those in need. With her bachelor’s degree in clinical psychology and many years spent working for a community counseling center, she brings a trauma-informed and inclusive approach to her legal work. Audrey knows that being involved in a family law case can be one of the hardest times in her client’s life – regardless of gender identity, class, or race. Although she cannot make the divorce or custody fight go away, she makes every attempt to make the whole process as smooth, affordable, and understandable as possible.
She listens and truly hears what her clients are saying about their lived experiences and what is important to them. She has created her own, no-B.S. approach to family law that is both compassionate AND affordable, which she hopes will help many members of our community.
Not only is Audrey passionate about helping clients through their family law matters, she has also grown passionate about helping people plan for their futures and protect their assets. She has experience in assisting her clients in adding family members through adoption and creating estate plans for clients to ensure what they have worked hard for is protected. She enjoys the legal work on either end of this spectrum (and everything in-between!).
When not working, Audrey can be found in the cycling studio, outside exploring all the beauty Oregon has to offer, or enjoying her home with her cat, Felix.
What are you currently addicted to? - Peanut Butter M&Ms. I can’t stop! They are the superior M&M, no argument. I’m also very keen on cycling classes. I love the endorphins after class and the community at the studio!
If you weren’t an attorney, what would your career be? - I think I would have ended up in education. I love people (and kids!) and helping them become empowered through knowledge
Keith’s practice is devoted to helping injured people and their families in their greatest time of need. Keith has experience in multiple areas of the law—including representing tenants against predatory landlords and helping employees whose rights were violated by employers—but he joined the Larwick Law Firm to represent victims and their families who were injured by the negligence of others.
Keith is known for his persistence, calm demeanor under pressure, and his ability to simplify complex factual scenarios and legal issues. His ability to read the situation, value the case accurately and communicate effectively helps to ensure a just resolution. He goes above and beyond to advocate for his clients.
Keith graduated from Gonzaga University with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. He immediately began working for a local labor union where he represented over 1200 union members across three states. He stood for the rights of workers and pushed back against multinational corporations. During law school, Keith focused on representing clients from underserved communities. As an attorney, he still believes in helping the overmatched. Whether negotiating for safer working conditions against Fortune 500 companies or representing clients injured by someone else’s wrongdoing, Keith fights on behalf of those who might otherwise be powerless.
Outside of work, Keith is a passionate fan of auto racing, specifically the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Formula One. Most of all, he loves going to baseball games with his wife and two daughters.

Have you ever cut your own hair? How did that go? I always cut my own hair. When I was 16, I went in for a haircut and paid $80 to have my hair look the same. Ever since I cut my own hair, I just keep chopping until I'm content with the results. I do the same with my hair color as well. I have to say that to this day, I have not botched my hair too badly.
Which living person would you most want to meet? The person I would love to meet most in the world is Henry Cavill. I loved him as Superman, and I am huge into superhero movies. He is also a gamer, loves to play tabletop games, and is very educated, so I feel he would be a very interesting person to have a conversation with. Plus, I really admire the dedication and hard work he puts into each one of his roles.
