In Memory of Peter Maguddayao

Clement Law Center mourns the sudden and unexpected passing on January 18, 2018, of our colleague and friend, Peter Maguddayao. He was 40 years old when he passed away. Peter worked for eight years at Clement Law Center as a contract attorney, associate, and junior partner. He graduated in 2003 from Gonzaga Law School, and was admitted to the Washington State Bar Association in 2004.

Peter was a courageous, passionate, and highly effective family law advocate for truth, for justice, for his clients, and especially for the children. He brought to our firm a unique combination of insight, quiet humor, gentleness, empathy and compassion. All of us can learn from his example, in and out of the courthouse.

Peter was a dedicated sports fan, and proudly wore his Seahawks jersey before game days. Our firm, and the entire family law community, will sorely miss Peter. We have received countless comments and praise from the clients, attorneys, paralegals, and judges who knew him.

Peter is survived by his wife an 2 small children. Memories can be shared at Contributions to a fund for support of Peter's family can be made at
