Meet Our Staff
CarrieLegal Assistant and Reception
Carrie has worked for Jonathan Rands, Attorney At Law for 10 years. She is well versed in all aspects of the office and specializes in Department of Licensing and the inter-workings of the local courts. From the moment you call, you will likely speak with Carrie who will begin by asking you some general important questions to help us learn about your case and your unique needs. Once Carrie has learned a little about what your needs are, she will schedule you an appointment to see Jonathan Rands as soon as it is possible.
Carrie’s interest outside the office are spending time with her son and husband, practicing yoga, stand up paddle boarding and hiking the pacific Northwest. She enjoys music, her friendships, and travel.
Kristine joined our team in the fall of 2018 as a legal assistant and brings many years of experience and expertise to Jonathan Rands, Attorney At Law. She previously worked for a mediation firm and is trained in dispute resolution. Kris will be responsible for obtaining and preparing many of the legal documents that will help Mr. Rands in providing you the best defense for the entirety of your case.
In her spare time, Kristine enjoys skiing, camping and being outdoors with her husband and son. Her faith is very important to her and gives her a positive hope for the future. She is also considered a "crazy cat lady" by some since she has two tuxedo cats, named Kam and Sherm.
Kristine, Carrie and Jonathan Rands, look forward to working with you and transitioning you from a stressful and difficult time, through the life of your case, where you are afforded the best DUI defense in Northwest Washington.
