Employment (Non-Union), Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury
Priscilla is an attorney and mediator at Accord Mediation, PLLC. With over 20 years of litigation experience, Priscilla is a proponent of alternative dispute resolution because she sees confidential and facilitated mediation services as the best way to resolve disputes while saving the parties time and resources. During her 15-year tenure as a U.S. Department of Justice attorney operating under three presidential administrations and five United States Attorneys, Priscilla's areas of practice ranged from personal injury and complex medical malpractice cases to employment discrimination and immigration. Through her practice, Priscilla worked collaboratively within the many layers of government and with opposing parties to help secure a just resolution for her cases to further the best interests of the public.
In addition to her time in public service, Priscilla served on the Board of the Asian Bar Association of Washington (“ABAW”) from 1999 to 2006, and was President of the ABAW in 2005. While President, Priscilla worked with the Washington State Bar Association (“WSBA”) and the many minority bar associations to increase diversity representation in the legal community.
As a first generation Chinese American, Priscilla and her family immigrated to the United States in 1974. She grew up in Tacoma, Washington and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Neurobiology at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, followed by a law degree at Lewis and Clark Law School, in Portland, Oregon, before returning home to Seattle.
In addition to building up her mediation practice, Priscilla is also active in her community. She has been blessed to be a counselor and mentor to college students and young adults in her Seattle church for over a decade. In her spare time, she loves to spend time with friends and family and hike beautiful trails in the Pacific Northwest.
