The Law Firm of Richard A. Cole PS
I was referred to Richard Cole through Legal Voice as a lawyer, who was willing to do one day only representation. I also highly recommend Legal Voice as the best non-profit organization for getting legal advice and referrals to attorneys for free. After leaving a voice message for Richard on a Friday, he said he had an opening and could be my legal representative for my 9 am court hearing on Monday. Although it was Easter weekend and he was spending time with his family, he contacted me over a dozen times per email to get details about the court hearing. We met before the court hearing and Richard was very focused on getting the details from me he needed to achieve a successful outcome. He has the experience to get straight to the point. During the court hearing, I noticed he had a stack of legal printouts with yellow sticky notes, which demonstrated to me, he had really invested time into preparing for a one day only representation and was not out to just, earn a flat fee without working for it. Richard Cole is a rare, excellent, experienced lawyer who cares and works hard for his clients. I was so impressed by his work ethic. I then hired him to represent me on additional legal issues and each time I asked for his help he provided service that knocked my socks off. Richard has stopped me from making mistakes in my court cases and in my decisions. I personally do not want a lawyer who does not have the strength of character to tell me when I am doing something that will not produce positive outcomes. Richard gives practical advice. He emphasizes staying focused and professional in approaching a problem. I hope this review has been helpful and one day Richard Cole can help you also. I was encouraged by Legal Voice to not thank them but to thank the lawyer they referred me to.
Before I found Ms. Kristen, I had consulted with 5 other attorneys. I initially consulted with her on the phone and 3 minutes into the conversation I knew she was the "one." Through Ms. Kristen, I have filed for dissolution, temporary orders and a domestic violence protection order. It's a very complex divorce case. She had the most knowledge out of all of the attorneys I had spoken with. She knew about jurisdiction and emergency jurisdiction laws, not just for the state of Washington but out of state as well. She has much experience in relocation (with children). She is fierce, strong and fights for me like I am her family. She has given me many options and scenarios so I never feel overwhelmed and know what is coming/expected. Whenever things don't go as planned she comes up with something to remedy it. She makes me feel comfortable and is always available (email, phone, & even text). She listens, is caring and works very hard. My husband holds an esteemed position in the community and she is never intimated about going up against him. She has many years of experience and I would not trust anyone else with my family law issues from this point on. I highly recommend her. She is worth EVERY penny!!
Law Office of Eric J. Schurman
I obviously didn't meet Eric Schurman during the best of times, but I can't recommend him enough for making a painful period a lot easier to get through. I found him through his positive reviews online, and now I’m glad to be able to add my voice to the growing chorus of praise. He handled my case with professionalism and compassion, understanding how difficult this time was for me. His knowledge of the law and of my rights gave me confidence and put me at ease throughout the process. His response time to phone calls and emails is amazingly swift, which made me feel less like ‘just another client’ and more like I was being taken care of. Eric displayed a thorough command of the law and a gift for delivering measured, wise counsel at every step. His even-tempered and compassionate demeanor was also reassuring—and even better, he won our case! I am so thankful I had him on my side. I would recommend Eric to my closest friends knowing they would be in good hands.
