We assisted our son with his divorce case and worked closely with Bruce, Melinda and his staff this past year. There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonderful, quality service we received from Bruce, Melinda and the staff at the Clement Law Center. If you want the best legal representation, choose the Clement Law Center.
We had complete confidence in their legal knowledge and ability in every aspect of the difficult divorce case. We were met with efficiency and quality in accomplishing the paperwork and getting through the tough job of divorce negotiations.
Their personal attention and care was outstanding. They both made us feel that we had their complete attention and we never felt rushed through any of our meetings or conference calls. They were encouraging when times were bleak and lifted us up when we were discouraged. They went above and beyond in every aspect of this case. Their personal commitment to us made our experience through a tough situation bearable. We will definitely return to the Bruce Clement Law Center if any future legal situations occur. In conclusion, we highly recommend The Clement Law Center primarily due to Bruce Cement's legal expertise, his superior staff and their complete compassion and support for their clients.
I was given a 30min phone consultation by Mr. Clement on 1/15/14. Mr. Clement was very calm and thorough in answering all of my questions. I really appreciate him listening to me explain what I was going through and then advising me on what he thought I needed to do per what I was telling him. I now feel confident going about filing the proper paperwork for my case. Thank you Mr. Clement!
I am in the midst of a marital breakup with minor children involved and had way too many questions and concerns. Mr. Clement took time and dealt with my particulars allaying no small amount of anxiety of mine. The meeting was crisp and on point greatly aiding in the elimination of many fears I have. Too top it off I am seeking mediation at Mr. Clement's suggestion so so far he is not even earning a well deserved fee from my case. I may soon find myself retaining Mr. Clement's services however. If i do, I have a referral through an empoyer sponsored organization called CLC which not only provided the intitial consultation for free but will discount any fees I may incur by 25%.
I hired Bruce Clement to represent me in dissolving a domestic partnership, which was going to be recognized as a legal marriage as of June 2014. He and his staff worked quickly and efficiently to get the case filed before the June 2014 deadline. His staff was very professional and kept me informed of the status of my case. Bruce Clement is a very personable man who explained the law to me in a way that was easy to understand. I would recommend them to my friends and family and intend to use his services should the need arise in the future.
Mr. Clement did an excellent job of sitting down with me on multiple occasions to evaluate my situation. I had intellectual property and a business that I wanted to ensure were protected and/or divided fairly in the divorce. He was able to give me the knowledge to protect myself. Bruce gave me loads of great advice, there were times I didn't take it and regretted it later (not getting a restraining order being the biggest). It was a tough year, but at no fault of the staff at Clement Law Center. Bruce and his team are great and I would work with them again. They were a rock when my ex caused a lot of problems and drama. Even at the end, when everything suddenly came together at the last minute. They made it happen. I'm so grateful to Bruce. I highly recommend him, especially if your divorce is not a cut and dry case.
I needed a family law attorney to handle a divorce for me. I chose to give Bruce a try, based upon reviews I'd seen on the internet. I was extremely pleased not just with Bruce, but with his entire staff, as well. The entire team was upfront with me about expectations and fees and they kept me very well informed. Melinda provided the gentle (But firm) prodding I needed when I fell behind on gathering and providing the information they needed to help me. Her role was vital. They kept all of their commitments. Additionally (And very important to me), they were very respectful of my now ex-wife's feelings. I hope that I don't need an attorney again anytime soon but, if I do, my first call will be to the Clement Law Center.
Mr. Clement and his legal team were very helpful with my ordeal. They were very patient with me. They responded timely to my requests, and were able to walk me through the whole process. My (ex)-spouse and I would have had a tremendously difficult time completing and filing the necessary paperwork by ourselves. If I had to do it again... well, Bruce Clement would be the first person I would call.
My husband and I had a challenging case that was without precedent in Washington State. Dealing with legal troubles is never enjoyable but Mr. Clement and his staff were very professional and courteous and helped to talk us through each step of the process. They were very knowledgeable and conducted sound research which I'm sure helped our case a lot. When we went before the judge to present our case, the judge - having familiarity with and respect for Mr. Clement's work - swiftly gave us a favorable result. While we hope that we won't have to spend any more time in courtrooms, if we did have to, we would definitely call Mr. Clement back for his legal expertise. I'd highly recommend him as an attorney to any of my friends.
On researching the online information on non-parental custody, I suspected that it was at least incomplete. On that basis, and having worked in a job that required that I regularly engage our staff attorneys in strategizing with very positive results, I decided to seek legal advice. I selected Bruce by researching his background and credentials on-line. As I compared family law practitioners, it was abundantly clear to me that Bruce's life experiences and qualifications surpassed his colleagues'. When I met with him, I got much broader, more applicable, and very practical insights on how to proceed and what the likely outcomes would be. Of particular note was the absolute absence of divisive comment or suggestion that might cause or inflame resentments between the parties involved and I. Believing as I do that decisions on child welfare are best made when the focus remains on the children, and are not clouded or compromised by animosities between adults, I very much appreciated his sound information presented neutrally.
He charged us $58,000 and then, when we finally had our day in court, he wasn't prepared for rebuttal and completely bombed. When it came time for him to argue our case he just stood in silence while opposing counsel ripped our case to shreds. When he had the opportunity for rebuttal, he didn't say anything, just folded his papers. We were ordered to pay the opposing attorney because we lost. We thought he'd be great based on his peer rating, but now we know how bad he is and wouldn't recommend him to ANYONE. Numerous times we told him he was charging us more money than we could afford, but he just kept telling us we had a strong case and he thought we'd win. So we went through our savings believing what he said.
