I hired Drew White to take on my immigration case while I was detained in Tacoma. I was facing deportation and my case was not the easiest to win but not impossible. My family and I did a great deal of work gathering documentation and letters from the community to help my case. Unfortunately Mr. White was incredibly unprepared for my case. At my court hearing he seemed like a fish out of water, he was completely overwhelmed and seemed to not have prepared well for my hearing. Needless to say I lost my bond hearing and spent another 6 months in detention fighting my case. Luckily my family found a very experienced attorney, thank God, and she was able to bond me out of detention. I would definitely not recommend them. They are professional and I'm sure they love their job but they lack the experience to really make a difference.

Worst attorney ever! Unprofessional, unreliable and unethical- betrayed my trust and confidence and violated our agreement! Did not file with the court even 1.5 years after I paid in full for her services. She would never get back to me, even after 100's of phone calls and texts, nor show up to our appointments. I would ask for days off from work to be able to meet with her and push things forward and she wouldn't bother coming or even letting me know she won't be there.She would work so hard at making herself seem so presentable and nice before receiving the retainer's - but as soon as she gets the money she doesn't care about you or the case!

From day one, Jennifer Lacoste cared about my case and fought for what was fair. She is positive, reassuring and always well prepared for court. Jennifer has a special presence in court and was always prepared for the unexpected. She is a wonderful problem solver and works well with difficult opposing parties. She never let me down. Zulema , her paralegal is amazing and well organized. She always kept me well informed and talked me through some very emotional times. I cannot thank them enough for all the hard work on my case. I am glad I made the right choice choosing an attorney and paralegal that were always by my side.

My experience with this attorney was HORRIBLE. I found her dishonest, unethical, unprofessional and incapable of completing the most basic responsibilities as an attorney, such as filing with the court, showing up for a hearing. AFTER I fired her she then filed everything to cover up her poor unethical behavior. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone for anything. I should have checked for reviews, because when I did, I found other stories that sounded just like mine. I have made a formal complaint with the WA state bat and I encourage anyone who has an issue with this attorney to do the same..... Be aware..... This is a BAD ATTORNEY
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
