Biography

I live in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood with my wife Helena, a mental health therapist. I moved to Seattle from Denmark in 1985; I am fluent in Danish and understand and read Swedish and Norwegian. My attorney profile is below:
 

I started working at Seattle’s Magnolia Hi-Fi shortly after I arrived. I decided to become a lawyer when I was 19 and started college in 1991 while working full time. I graduated from the University of Washington in 1997 and from UW School of Law in 2000. I consider myself very lucky it was Seattle I moved to; it is the most wonderful city I know.
 

I started work during law school for a workers’ compensation firm representing injured workers. After law school, I began representing persons injured by other people’s negligence, whether from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, or premises liability. I also spent several years in general practice representing people in landlord-tenant, real property, contract and family law cases.
 

With a commitment to getting compensation for those who need it most, I started Soholm Law Firm in 2015. While my firm is relatively young, I can promise you that I will be accessible, that you will understand what is happening with your case, and that you will have my undivided attention.
 

I love to explore art, especially Seattle’s music scene. I have been a music fan since I started playing my parents’ LPs when I was 6. I do not discriminate: While I love the Seattle Opera and Seattle Symphony, I can also be found at punk and most other types of shows at Neumos on Capitol Hill, the Showbox downtown Seattle, Ballard’s Tractor Tavern, the Seattle Symphony, and jazz/blues shows at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley.
 

 
I also love exploring Seattle by foot: long walks from Ballard through Wallingford to Capitol Hill, or across Queen Anne or Magnolia, and Magnolia’s Discovery Park. I also love classic literature, biographies, history and politics.
