Meet Autumn E. Smith
Autumn is a recent graduate of the University of Idaho School of Law and is excited to be a part of the Law Offices of Torres & Haroldson as a new Associate Attorney as the office continues to grow.
Autumn's undergraduate degree is in Social Work. Autumn also has experience as a family law legal assistant for nearly four years prior to becoming an attorney where she integrated her compassionate nature to help others within the legal field.
Currently, her practice focuses on family law and Estate Planning.
Autumn graduated from Snohomish County Christian Highschool, located in Mountlake Terrace, in 2001. After completing her first two years of college at Shoreline Community College, she attended the University of Montana where she majored in Social Work and minored in Psychology. When she graduated, she returned the Pacific Northwest and met her partner and started a family. After obtaining her paralegal certificate and working as a legal assistant for nearly 4 years, Autumn decided to attend law school. Pursuant to that desire, her partner and child moved with her to Moscow, Idaho, where she attended the University of Idaho College of Law, and graduated with her J.D. in 2020 in the top 20% of her class. Autumn again returned to the Pacific Northwest to build her legal career and reputation within her home region.
When not helping others with their legal needs, Autumn enjoys spending time with her family and enjoys kayaking, backpacking, hiking and anything related to the great outdoors.
