A U.S. Navy veteran with 10 years on active duty, JerriLynn Hadley was part of the first group of enlisted women to be permanently assigned to sea duty and spent, much of that time working as an electrician. Her military experience taught JerriLynn to be tough, to work hard, and to be direct. As a result, clients can always expect to hear a direct and clear answer to their questions. Clients will tell you that if you ask JerriLynn’s opinion, you will always get a straightforward, honest answer. With an honest evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the situation, clients are well prepared to make informed decisions as to what comes next. Moreover, JerriLynn’s military experience traveling extensively in many parts of the world taught her to be accepting of people’s differences and to communicate effectively with everyone. JerriLynn brings these skills along with many years of law practice to bear when working for her clients.

JerriLynn told everyone when she was three years old she was going to be a lawyer, and she never wavered, although she did take a detour through the Navy. She began practicing law in Seattle in 1997. Today, JerriLynn has a varied general civil Litigation practice, which includes aspects of family law as well as contract disputes, business litigation, and construction defect work.

Having spent much of her military career based in Florida, JerriLynn and fell in love with the warm weather, beautiful beaches, and southern hospitality of the Florida panhandle. After the military, she eventually returned to Florida to raise her family. JerriLynn is a single mother who loves the outdoors: paddleboarding, kayaking, camping, biking, and going somewhere new.
