    • I recommend W. Vander Wel.
    • I hired W. Vander Wel more than 3 years ago.
    • W. Vander Wel handled my Securities / Investment Fraud matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Theo was recommended by my estate attorney. My late parent's Trust was named as one of thousands of defendants in a national lawsuit. It was an unusual enough lawsuit that Theo had to research the particulars for defending an expired Trust's liabilities both for the state and nationally but he did so thoroughly and timely and was ultimately successful in getting it dismissed. Theo made a concerted effort to try and mitigate the expenses to me (as the former Trustee), since the Trust had expired previously, which I appreciated very much. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again for any legal assistance.

    • I hired W. Vander Wel more than 3 years ago.
    • W. Vander Wel handled my Land Use / Zoning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    My husband and I were involved in a land use dispute about three-years ago. Theo was recommended by another attorney. Theo was professional and competent right from the start.

    I would highly recommend him. His excellent experience in the field of Real Estate and Land Use laws will help you or your business through the ever changing ordinances in King County.

    • I recommend W. Vander Wel.
    • I hired W. Vander Wel more than 3 years ago.
    • W. Vander Wel handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I met and was impressed by Theo some 18 years ago. I told him on the spot he was going to be my real estate lawyer. Years went by and I recommended him to many people, who started using him. Fortunately, I did not need him very much. Then 8 years ago I started investing in real estate more aggressively, and I have used him many times since. I have always been impressed. He has always delivered good advice, is a very hard worker, is extremely smart, and fun to be with as well.
    I will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs a highly competent real estate attorney, as I have done in the past.
