Erik J. Wise

An effective, experienced family law, estate planning, probate, and contract negotiation/dispute practitioner, Erik is dedicated to zealously advocating for the rights of his clients. He’s a valuable member of Curiale Hostnik PLLC and a powerful asset for the parents, personal representatives, heirs, business and property owners in the Puget Sound region. Erik is a graduate of the Seattle University School of Law, where he was the recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship and two CALI Awards for Excellence, one of which was for Indian Governmental Gaming. A former teacher, Erik strives to find creative solutions to the problems his clients face. He works with those he represents to reduce litigation, if possible, and uses all available legal tools to resolve the issues at hand and achieve an optimal result.

Helping to assist and guide people through some of the most challenging times in their lives is what draws Erik to the law. In marriage dissolution actions, for one, it can often become impossible for divorcing couples to amicably resolve their disagreements over property, custody, and support. In these situations, an effective family law attorney can make all the divorce. Whether it be in family law, probate, or contract negotiations/disputes, Erik will vigorously advocate to ensure that his clients do not cede their rights, either inadvertently or by being pressured from the other side.

Erik is a Seattle native and attended its public schools. He has a BA in Comparative Literature with honors and a Masters in Elementary Education, both from the University of Washinton. Although he grew up in North Seattle, Erik has lived in West Seattle for almost twenty years now. He is a voracious reader, with tastes covering many genres, has travelled to over twenty countries to date, and enjoys exploring the Puget Sound region.
