Seattle Divorce Lawyer

Franni Turean, attorney at law and partner at Wechsler Becker, LLP, received her Juris Doctorate from Seattle University School Law in 1996.  She closed her solo practice in August 2016 to join Wechsler Becker. Franni received her Bachelor of Science in Film and Television Production from Montana State University in 1980.  Franni worked in broadcast television for 16 years (even winning an Emmy!) before obtaining her law degree. Franni very specifically went to law school to practice family law. She wanted to help people, people who might not have any other brush with litigation, navigate the legal system and achieve the best possible outcome for their families.

Franni is a member of:

  • King County and Washington State Bar Associations.
  • King County Washington Women Lawyers
  • Toastmasters International

Interesting facts:  Franni was awarded the Rising Star award from Super Lawyers in 2007, was a Merit Scholar (Seattle University School of Law) and Emmy Award Winner (KOMO TV). Franni achieved her standing as a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) in 2012. She is an avid skier (downhill), sings occasionally, and has been known to emote on stage. Franni resides in the Seattle area.

Kristin House, paralegal, has worked in the legal field in the Puget Sound area since 2005.  She has worked with Franni since November 2014
