April L. Thomas was born in Seattle and primarily raised in Bellingham. Eric A. Holte was born and raised in Kansas. April and Eric met at Seattle University School of Law, where they were also ultimately married. Five children, two goats, a horse, five dogs, a cat, several chickens and ducks, and other small animals, occupy much of their time when they are not working together. Over the years, and as a result of their compassion and desire to understand each individual client's family situations, April and Eric have developed close bonds with several of their clients, who have become family friends.
