From the consultation thru the ultimate dismissal of my charge, Lance was stellar. While I did not give him much to work with, he took my case on, gave me clear advice/options for us to pursue and kept me apprised of the status with the Court. With his relationship and experience with the local jurisdictions, he was able to present my side of the case which resulted in the most favorable outcome for me. I sincerely appreciated his honest assessment and approach.
Lance Fryrear is an amazing attorney. He not only did his thing in court but was very helpful outside of court for any questions that I had. That benefit did not end when I was done with my court stuff. Lance has been there for me for many other questions and has always answered them thoroughly and in a fast manner. Lance is a smooth criminal while in court and his ability to flip a bad thing into a good thing is tremendous. He was faced with two hard nosed PA's and he was able to get them to release their bite and I got the minimum of what I could have received.
The others in his office such as Prairie (his associate) and Kate (his secretary) did an amazing job as well keeping me updated on what was going on in the event Lance was unable to. All three of them are as professional as can be and the right choice when selecting an attorney to represent you. Remember you have a lot at stake so it is a no brainer to go with the best of the best.
Thank you Lance, Prairie, and Kate for all that you have done. The client/attorney relationship is the only one where it is appropriate to say, I hope I never see you again :-). If I do need another attorney, god for bid, I don't have to look anywhere as I found the guy to have my back in anything.
In September of 2014, I found myself making a few bad choices that led to a domestic violence charge and a criminal mischief charge. With the pending charges, I did a few online searches, made a few calls and ended up talking with Lance for 5 minutes on the phone, and he invited me in for a free consultation. After meeting with Lance for about 20 minutes, I knew I found the right guy to help me.
Over the 4 months, and 4 court visits it took to settle the matter Lance was responsive, supportive, realistic, and very good at what he does. He knows how to work the system to his clients benefit and he has the experience and the personality to work well with prosecutors and judges.
One of the things I asked Lance on an occasions was; "what can I do to give us the best chances here?" Without hesitating Lance gave me numerous options, and then he said "If you really want to throw napalm at this, take the 1 year DV class, take the Alcohol and Drug Intervention class, and look at personal counseling. This will give us the best chance and it shows the courts you are taking the appropriate steps in changing your negative behavior" With the trust I had in Lance, I did everything that he suggested and it certainly helped us out in the end.
I'm now through with all of the court appearances and all charges, and the no-contact order have been dropped! I can't thank Lance enough for taking special care with my case and minimizing any long-term negative effects on my record and wallet.
So...I highly recommend Lance and when he tells you to "throw napalm" at it, do it.
I know that this review is a little on the long side, but you will regret it if you don't read it through to the end!
I hired Lance almost three years ago. Never needing a lawyer before, I had no idea how to navigate the search for good counsel. An inquiry for lawyers on my google search bar landed Lance at the top of the list. Let me tell you, top of the list he is!!
I felt at ease from the moment I met him and was in fantastic and capable hands from start to finish. What really impressed me, was that although he is an "in demand" lawyer, Lance was always accessible and he's extremely down to earth. My case wasn't a difficult one, so any associate could very easily have handled my time in front of the judge without ill effect. However, Lance showed up to walk me through. He knew full well that I wouldn't feel at ease without him by my side. Now that's putting your client first! Everything went well, just as Lance had predicted. However, I am most grateful for the fact that he took time out of what was an insanely busy week , to wait patiently by my side for hours in courthouse hallway because he knew me well enough to know that I'd be excessively stressed without him there. Now here's the part of my review where you really need to stand up and take notice. You see, I have some guilt for having waited so long to type up this review, especially being that I am so grateful for all that Lance has done for me. Well as they say, everything happens for a reason and the reason for my delay is this.....just after my case with Lance the nightmare that I'm currently in began to unfold. Years of living with a toxic alcoholic finally became scary and unbearable and divorce became my only option. So I did the same thing that I did when I searched for Lance. I again google searched, this time for a divorce lawyer. One who would go over and beyond the call of duty, and treat me as well as Lance had. Someone who would be a strong advocate for me as their client. One who would make the safety and wellbeing of my child paramount. I once again chose a lawyer who just jumped off the page at me. This lawyer came HIGHLY recommended and has a stellar reputation. The write ups were insanely amazing and I believed I'd found, (or so I thought), exactly who I needed to represent me. Well this time I wasn't so fortunate. Luckily all of you get to learn from my very painful, and very expensive mistake. You see, just because someone looks good in print, with a plethora of glowing reviews and a multitude of awards and accolades, does not mean they are actually who they are portrayed to be! I recently learned that I have spent over a year, as a "back burner" case for my lawyer. I should've been long since divorced and free of this mess. Instead I was literally thrown in front of the proverbial bus by this individual. My case should have been an easy one for someone with this person's credentials, yet my case and the safety and well being of my precious child was not their priority. $20,000, excessive stress, and no final decree later, I am now about to jump into the hands of another lawyer that I pray can undo the damage this person has done. My point in mentioning this is to let you know that anyone can look good if they need to. They can have their friends and colleagues write up fabulously glowing reviews and come highly recommended by clients with whom the lawyer actually chose to make time for. However, that doesn't mean that they are worth it. This unfortunate experience made me realize how important it is to truly separate the cream of the crop from the bottom of the barrel. This is why I'm singing Lance's praises. He will not steer you wrong. He is a straight shooter with a generous and caring heart. He's a shark when he needs to be for all of the right reason's. He is gracious, kind and trustworthy. He is the real deal. Don't hesitate to hire him, you will be in good hands. Lance truly is the best!
I am a person that does not find myself in a courtroom often if ever. I interviewed 8 different attorneys prior to selecting Lance. I do not exxagerate when I tell you that each of those attorneys told me that Lance is the best, or more specifically, that if they needed an attorney, they would hire Lance. Now keep in mind, these attorneys were trying to convince me to retain them. He is just that respected. The one thing that was conveyed consistently was that Lance has such an easy demeanor and that he gets deals that other attorneys can't get. This was certainly evidenced in my case. Furthermore, Lance is such a caring person. . He has an ability to empathize with his clients situation and works for a resolution as if it were his future at stake. If my words don't convince you, be sure to reference all his peer testimonials as well as past client reviews. Do not do yourself a disservice and hire anyone other than Lance. Your future is too important and Lance will get you the best possible result.
I cannot express enough, the importance of having a top notch lawyer on your side in court. I am so grateful for Lance and his team members as they responds to all communications ASAP, fought hard for my case that was trying to give me jail time, and ultimately ended with a case dismissal, without jail time, community service, or counseling. Don't be a fool to pass this guy up, get him on your side!
I was involved in a very difficult and unexpected situation but thanks to God and Lance I was able to come up with the best possible outcome. Lance not only did an EXCELLENT job as an attorney but also he is a GREAT human being. He is a person you can trust as he was very HONEST and CLEAR during the advice he gave me throughout the process. Lance kept me calmed and cheered me up in the hard times. Lance motivated me to be positive and have faith on the situation outcome.
More than my lawyer I saw him as a close friend that clearly understood my emotional state for the consequences that I could face if I did not obtain a favorable outcome. Once again, I want to express my great appreciation and I pray to God to bless him and give him strength to continue to help the community.
This review is long overdue. Long story short, a couple of years ago Lance represented me through one of the most stressful situations of my life. I had an outstanding warrant from an old DWI I needed to take care of, and Lance's good rapport with the prosecutor and his knowledge of the Lynnwood Municipal Court saved me from doing a lengthy jail sentence. Lance walked me through everything and explained what I needed to do and how everything would go, and it happened just like he said it would. I ended up with 18 days, when it could have easily been 180 days or more in that particular court. Lance advised me when to turn myself in so that I would get the most lenient prosecutor and judge for the most favorable outcome. Not only that, while I served my time he watched over my personal items, since I had to travel to the area from out of state to deal with this. I was released on a Sunday, and he made a special trip to his office to release my personal belongings and make sure I had somewhere to go. Great attorney, great guy. If you want an attorney who cares, knows the system, and can deliver, I'd recommend Lance!
Lance truly went above and beyond in my case, which resulted in a DISMISSAL!! Instead of simply working out a plea deal with the prosecutor and calling it good, he employed a strategy that meant a significant amount of extra time and effort on his part in an attempt to get the charges dismissed. Lance truly had my best interest in mind and his strategy worked. Lance was professional, responsive, and clearly had the respect of the judge and prosecutor. I highly recommend Lance Fryrear if you need an attorney who will work for the best possible outcome.
I was facing very serious consequences from being a habitual traffic offender. I hired Lance in hope to minimize these consequences. He did an excellent job that exceeded my expectations with a best case outcome. Thanks again Lance!
