We hired Kelly after working with another attorney for several months and getting nowhere. We were becoming genuinely concerned for the welfare of our child and he wasn’t. Once we hired Kelly, she did more in 12 hours than the previous attorney had done. She is no nonsense, clearly well respected by judges, other attorneys and child counselors in the area, and prioritizes what’s best for the children above all else. We cannot recommend her enough or say enough good things about her.
Mr. Benjamin and his staff handled my very complicated divorce and subsequent remodification. I was impressed with his quick grasp of the situation and his knowledge of dealing with a diagnosed Narcissist. Jason was kind, knowledgeable, and no nonsense in trail. The opposing party came in with stacks of papers lead in on a dolly and we showed up and won the case with brief clear arguments.
I have read some bad reviews about Jason and have chalked that up to someone who was a difficult client that didn’t get his or her way. My experience was and still is very respectful and competent on every level.
I am very thankful to him and his organized team. I did not have a lot of money and I was fighting a bully and they had my back and for the first time I beat a giant….. all thanks to them.
Natalie is one of the most professional people I have ever met. Natalie helped me defend against a baseless custody change case. From the first instance, it was clear to me that Natalie is a champion for what is right and fair. She was consistently quite detail-oriented with a great eye for things that truly matter. With her guidance, we focused our efforts on the most meaningful and impactful parts of the case without neglecting anything of value. She was also extremely inclusive willing to listen to every thought and concern as she helped guide the process towards our desired goals. Natalie is an extremely respectful and understanding person who genuinely cares. Her preparation and delivery at the hearing was simply perfect. Not only did she represent the facts fully, but she also perfectly conveyed the legal grounds that ultimately led to the “best case” results we had hoped for. Without a doubt, I would recommend Natalie to anyone in need of legal assistance.
I hired Natalie to help me protect my child from a very dangerous situation that involved my ex-wife. Due to the severity of the situation, there was no way I was going to consider trying to address the issue without an attorney. It was a multi-year ordeal with many twists and turns, and Natalie was in my corner every step of the way. She expertly helped me understand the many complex issues at hand, navigate my options, and stay focused on the most important objectives during numerous hearings and eventually a long, grueling trial. Natalie really understands the climate of the family law courtroom and nuances of the law, and as a result, she is keenly qualified to help dads navigate the Washington court system. I recommend Natalie without any reservation whatsoever.
Jonathan literally saved my son! I hired Jonathan based off the word of mouth and the reputation the law firm had. Jonathan walked in midway into a very messy case, and completely shined the light on the real darkness that stood in the courtroom. I was trying to be made a fool of and made out to be something I’m not. He stood so dang strong, and I stood confidently beside him! He brought a son back to the most appreciative loving father period! I love my son beyond words, and I can’t thank Jonathan enough for what he has done in bringing him back to the loving family that will always be his foundation. Thank you Jonathan.
I contacted Jason in 2015 regarding a very complex custody situation I was in, and I am so glad that I did! He helped me get the results I wanted and was always straight forward when it came to the complexity of the case and the possible outcomes. If you have an extremely complicated case I would highly recommend Jason. He is extremely knowledgeable and will get you the results you need.
When I hired Natalie to work on my divorce case, I had been unrepresented for over two months. I had been bullied by the opposing attorney because of my lack of knowledge and experience in the field of law. Natalie put an end to the flow of unwarranted demands and helped me negotiate a fair settlement. Direct communication between myself and Natalie prevented wasted time, I was presented with facts about the outcome of certain decisions, I was never pressured to make any specific decisions, and when I had questions, Natalie was very responsive and helpful. I am sure that Natalie would act as top-notch representation in any case, but if you are a man seeking a fair divorce in WA State, I highly recommend that you consult with Natalie Roberts.
After meeting with 4 other highly recommended family law attorneys, I met and consulted with Attorney Leblanc. She instantly grasped my situation, formulated a plan and told me we could move up the timeline, if needed. The very next week, I asked her if we could move up the timeline and she stayed in the office late several nights in a row getting my files ready for court. As a prior guardian ad litem, she knows nearly all of the judges and court clerks and has an excellent repoire with them. She has the perfect balance in the court room; she knows when to push and when to back down. She is an earnest advocate for her clients and not only advises about legal matters, but knows when to comfort as well. Although divorce (especially with kids) is scary, I have trusted her completely and couldn’t be more pleased with our outcome. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a family law attorney! She has given me hope for my future.
Absolutely amazing experience with him. I’m not even sure where to begin with Jonathan. I had one of the ugliest and longest divorces/custody battles I never thought would end, and then he came in and did just that in a very short period of time. Just when I had thought things were going to turn out the worst for me, he turned it all around. He was super professional and yet showed a genuine care in my case. It was hard for me to believe he had only been in practice for so long because he killed it against someone who’s been practicing law for years. I felt like we were in a losing battle and he took care of it, constantly reminding me that it would turn out okay. He was available to answer questions as I had them and constantly reminded me “conquer one thing at a time” I would most definitely recommend him to everyone in need of a great attorney, especially those feeling like the worst is coming. I can’t thank him enough! I had been told he had been given the nickname “The Golden Boy”, I’m sure from being newer to the practice. Whoever came up with it definitely got it right. For such an amazing job he did, I can only imagine him years from now. Hire him if you want a respectful, professional, and extremely effective attorney.
I need to begin by saying he is excellent because he only had to read about my case and contacted ME to help, not the other way around. My divorce/custody battle was one of the ugliest because my ex absolutely refused to be cooperative. Jason helped me keep my cool while the other party chose to fight dirty. He is extremely knowledgeable in the courtroom and how to keep his clients positive. To say he fought long and hard, would be an understatement. I always felt confident going into the courtroom with him because he is a natural. He dug deeply into my case, applied different strategies when it seemed another just wasn’t going to work. He is aggressive when necessary, which is exactly what you need going against someone who wants to fight about EVERYTHING. He helped me get through what I thought was going to be never ending, but also got me the best possible outcome. Not only does he answer the questions you have, but checks in regularly to see how things are going and if anything has changed. My case didn’t end up going to trial, thank god, but at the same time, just watching him in our never ending hearings I would have been absolutely confident in it turning out in my favor. If you need an aggressive, professional, available attorney then hire him. He was the best attorney I could have found, or in my case found me. Hire him!
Intelligent, quick on his feet, doesn’t back down but does so with respect and likability. Listens to client input immediately and incorporates into argument. Came up to speed on facts with very little input. They call him “the Golden Boy,” and for good reason. He obtained a finding of contempt against my then husband for disposing of marital assets without authority, but in a case in which my ex pathologically lied on just about everything, Jonathan was able to bring the argument back on point while showing the disconnect in their lies. I was more than pleased and impressed, not just because he was successful in getting a contempt, but because he argued the best that anyone could have and I wouldn’t ask any more than that. Hire him. You won’t be disappointed. In fact, I’ve already asked for him if an appeal comes.
As a man caught completely by surprise in an ugly separation that began with my losing custody and being served with immediate restraints, I was scared and fearful I could lose my Daughters, my family and my livelihood. I hire Kelly Lablanc in December of 216. Kelly was quick to calm my nerves by jumping in with both feet and getting me back with my daughter in a few short weeks. She has since steadily fought for me and my daughters to get our lives back together and on track. I do not know what I would have done without her. I would recommend her to any man facing custody issues and to any women facing these issues for that matter. She has been amazing with both her due diligence and her availability. I cannot thank her and her team enough for all they have done for me and my family. My daughters will greatly benefit from her hard work. THANK YOU KELLY!!
I am in the middle of a contentious case in family court. Frankly I was getting my butt-kicked. I had a lawyer who wouldn’t call me back, who got to court and was unfamiliar with the facts of the case, who didn’t fight for me during oral arguments. I started looking around for another lawyer and decided to retain Mr Moffitt after reading his reviews and after a consultation. Mr Moffitt is the real deal. He is everything my old lawyer was not: he returns my calls and emails, he quickly became thoroughly acquainted with the facts of my case, and he fights for me during oral arguments. I would give him six stars if I could.
Jonathan was called in at the last minute to fill in for my custody hearing as my attorney was in trial on another case. We spoke for less then 10 minutes on the phone prior and the morning of the hearing Jonathan had definitely done his research on my case the night before as he said he would. Jonathan kept to the point at hand and clearly knew his law when he was challenged by the commissioner to state his position on his understanding of the law when raising his point to support his argument. I am very thankful for the confidence and the reassurance that Jonathan demonstrated on such short notice. Jonathan took the time after the hearing to go over any questions and to make sure I knew what the next steps would be.
My spouse kept my child from me for months, and then filed a Domestic Violence (DV) case as a precursor to filing for divorce. DV cases are very tough to beat, the system is designed for the accused to lose, and once you have DV against you your spouse will get carte blanche in the divorce. Mr. Rundle was great! He and his team helped collect, organize, and present the evidence that this was a facetious case in the very specific way it must be presented in DV cases. DV require the accused to follow very specific guidelines to prevail, and will lose if you don’t follow the rules. (rules the court does not explain at all to the accused, while providing copious help and resources to the accuser)
I could not be more pleased with Mr. Rundle and his team of paralegals. they were professional, kind, helpful, and very much on top of my case from the beginning.
Our case was a 3rd party custody where we needed to remove my niece and nephew from there living situation. Their mother needed help with addictions and needed to take time to focus on getting herself better. Kevin was very informative and straight forward. He didn’t sugar coat anything and made things very clear on what could and could not happen. Kevin and the team are very professional and they take great care of their clients. I would recommend Kevin to all my friend and in fact did with a friend that unfortunately is getting a divorce.
There are not enough words to describe how awesome Kevin was for me and my family. He was straight forward and honest with us form the very beginning. He also did his best to fight for our case and ours is a success story. My daughter was in a very bad living situation with her drug addicted mother and as a father I want what is best for my daughter. I knew it was a long shot to go for full custody. As a man its hard to do. Kevin told us he would do his best to at least get us visitation. He went above and beyond that. We first got temporary custody of my daughter and we figured it would stay like that just temporary. In the end we got full custody of my daughter. Now she is safe and in a loving home thanks to Kevin’s help. I can’t thank him enough!
Kelly is an amazing lawyer. She really takes an interest in knowing the client and what is in theirs or the child’s best interest. She is caring and able to give advice but leaves the final decision up to the client. If I had to go through anything like this again I would hire her again with no hesitation. She made a very difficult and stressful time much easier to deal with.
I was an active duty military member going through an ugly divorce when someone referred me to Susan. My ex had previously filed for separation 3 hours before my deployment and was trying to take my kids away from me. She accused me of abuse and many other things. (In short, she’s just a nut).
The attorney I had before Susan was terrible and just took my money. I started searching for other attorneys, but everyone gave me the same story: “you’re a man in the military in Washington. You’re going to pay your ex a ton of cash and you’ll get to see your kids every other weekend.” Susan was honest with me about my chances but said there were some particulars about my case that made her think a 50/50 arrangement could be on the table. She encouraged me to get a GAL involved and we were able to persuade the courts to do so. The GAL concluded what Susan had and recommended a 50/50 arrangement.
Being difficult, as always, my ex refused to settle and agree to the GALs recommendations. Instead she insisted we go to trial. During the trial my ex’s attorney showboated a lot and dragged things out insanely long. Susan stuck to the points and the facts of the case. In the end a female judge sided with the GAL’s recommendations and implemented the parenting plan recommended by the GAL.
Susan was amazing the entire time, kept me calm, even did not charge me for a few times I called her and needed her to play therapists and she even noticed me tearing up during the trial decision and passed me a box of tissues.
As a side note, I did wind up paying my ex a ton of cash, but that’s really not important to me. I think Susan protected my finances about as well as she could. She managed to get the courts to impute an income to my ex when she was claiming she had none–so there’s something to be said for that.
I will warn you, if you’re a guy that just wants to screw your ex over, you should move on. If you’re a man who genuinely cares about his children, I can’t recommend Susan highly enough.
We have been a client of Jason’s for many years. He is hands down the most honest and caring attorney I have ever met. He was always upfront about managing what we should expect through out our custody dispute. In addition to being honest and upfront he is outstanding in court. We have spent countless hours in court rooms hearing cases that fall before or after ours in a day and I can tell you that I have NEVER seen an attorney with the same presence as him, he has been more knowledgeable and has outperformed every attorney that has represented the other party in our case. He has always made himself available to answer our questions whether they are big or small. Our case has been settled for many years now but every once in a while we need his expertise or advice on something. I am amazed that he cares about his clients enough to maintain that relationship even after he has done what is expected of him as an attorney, he has ALWAYS gone above and beyond for us and anyone that we have referred to him. I will continue to refer my family and friends to envision family law because I know that they will be upfront and realistic with anyone that is sent their way. If you are looking for a hard working, honest and trustworthy attorney who will fight for your case like it is as important to him as it is to you, then this is the firm for you.
As someone who has been involved with family law for over 10 years and has represented myself and sought representation from other family law attorneys, Natalie reestablished the bar for me. She helped me understand each step of the process. She didn’t sell me a bag of goods. She was authentic and realistic from consultation through the final order. I couldn’t have asked for better representation. Her understanding of family law and court room etiquette helped put my mind at ease. I came away from this experience knowing a lot more about family law than I did going in.
If only Natalie represented me from the beginning of my engagement with the family court system….
In early July 2018 I was put on a rollercoaster ride. My son had been packed up and moved across the country overnight. I was in panic and no idea where to turn. After searching for hours and reading reviews on several attorneys, I consulted with Mr Moffit and immediately felt the concern and care about my situation. Mr Moffit and his team have been very professional, prepared and open with all communication! I highly recommend Jonathan to take on any family law case. He was able to get my son back to the state and get my parenting plan finalized. I can’t thank him enough for fighting for the best outcome for my son and I . It was a great pleasure working with him.
I highly recommend Jonathan Moffitt to any of my family, friends, co-workers and etc.. I had another attorney working on my case for over a year and I didn’t see any sense in paying that attorney more when no action what being made. I was recommended Mr. Moffitt and I am so happy I hired him! He communicates in a timely fashion, supportive, well prepared, understanding of court processes. He truly was the Hero to making things happen and now I have a parenting & child support order on paper.
My 11 year old grandson was taken by CPS three weeks ago due to incidents years prior. They stonewalled us at every turn, would not respond to our frequent calls and emails, trips into their offices, etc. We retained Jonathan on a Thursday, and he began blowing up their phones and emails immediately. His staff sprang into action preparing documents and getting them processed. By the NEXT day, a petition was filed in court, signed by the judge, and my grandson was released home to me. CPS was neglecting my grandson. If you find yourself dealing with CPS, do not delay. Jonathan Moffitt saved our family. Thank you Envision Family Law.
CPS recently took my 11 year old grandson for incidents of years prior and put him in a group home. They did not respond to our phone calls, emails and office visits. After several weeks of stonewalling, We retained Jonathan on a Thursday. During the consultation, he began calling and emailing CPS. His excellent staff went into action immediately, processing and filing a court action, and by the NEXT day the judge signed an order and CPS released my grandson home to me. My grandson would have had to spend Christmas with strangers if not for the swift and thorough action of this attorney. Thank you Jonathan and Envision Family Law for saving our family.
I was a client in a unique child support case with original settlement terms developed out-of-state. Kimberly demonstrated genuine concern for me as a person and the well-being of my child. She quickly reviewed a voluminous amount of documentation and assembled arguments to represent me. She displayed extraordinary legal scholarship in dealing with the principles involved in the out-of-state settlement.
Most importantly, Kimberly leveraged impressive talent and incisiveness for the judge’s interpretation of the law to adapt her arguments in court. She was well-prepared and incredibly agile during court proceedings, leading to a dismissal of the motion to modify the original agreement.
In dealing with four different attorneys throughout the defense and management of custody and child support agreements, Kimberly has far and away been the most successful attorney I’ve worked with. I would absolutely retain her services again and would urge anyone else in a family-related case to do the same.
Jonathan is very professional, understanding and pays the utmost attention to fine details. He is punctual and facilitates honest and accountable communication. He is a pleasure to work with and I would not only retain his services again, but I highly recommend him to anyone needing his assistance.
I hired Jason Benjamin to represent me in a case in regards to my children’s father, and a parenting plan. Things got super ugly before I hired him, and I was beyond upset and hurt. Once I met with Jason he restored my faith, and made me feel empowered when it comes to my children. Him and his team did an exceptional job going to bat for my family, and I am forever grateful. He is extremely knowledgeable, confident, and will fight for what is right. I had the best experience, and worth every penny!
Great move Envision Family Law! The best thing that this firm could have done, was to hire Attorney Scott Marlow. While I am certain that all of the attorneys are great at what they do, it takes a special human to alleviate the chaos and the ugly from a divorce procedure. I was married to a narcissist with money, who had an attorney without boundaries or ethics… but, I had Scott and they were not ready for him. Scott handled my “ugly” with compassion, kindness and most of all intelligence and backbone. Scott, thank you for your humor and your professionalism. You found a way to make me smile through the tears and you took care of all of the “what if’s” and “now what’s.” When I wanted to react from anger and frustration, you responded with knowledge and class and nothing else needed to be said. I am pretty sure that they are still asking themselves, “what just happened?” To that I say… Scott just happened!
