Meet our team of paralegals, whose depth of knowledge facilitates flexible and cost-effective client service delivery.

Our team is vastly experienced, and they provide essential support to our lawyers in the delivery of timely and accurate legal advice.  As a standalone group, we frequently utilize their expertise in circumstances that do not require the knowledge and fees associated with a lawyer. In this way, our paralegal team is an intrinsic part of our commitment to client service excellence.

Alicia Oney

Alicia Oney

Paralegal

Born and raised in Southeast Idaho, Alicia has grown to love the Pacific Northwest Region. While living in eastern Idaho, she graduated from the College of Eastern Idaho and obtained her Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies in 2005. For the five years following graduation, she worked for a small law office in Wyoming, being introduced to family law, criminal law, and probate.

Being lured by the beauty the state of Washington has to offer, Alicia moved and worked in the Tri-Cities area for the next ten years. She worked for several law firms and continued to broaden her skillset. She handled personal injury cases and family law matters at a firm called Telquist Ziobro McMillen (now called Telare Law). From there, she decided to hone her skills in family law and took a position at Ashby Law. It was at Ashby Law that she met Glenn Slate (he was working as a partner). Several years after Glenn left Tri-cities and relocated to Vancouver, Glenn offered Alicia the opportunity to move to the west side of the state and to work with him here at Heritage Family Law. To the good fortune of the firm, she accepted the opportunity and is now enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, west of the Cascades.

Alicia prides herself as a mother to four children. When she is not busy raising her family, she likes to read and travel.
