I had two uncommon alcohol related misdemeanors. Lance was able to get a fair and reasonable outcome for me within a year. He really knows what he is doing and was very friendly throughout the whole process. I personally would recommend lance as well as use him again if ever needed. Great job and great team at his law office. Thanks again Lance & Prairie!

I was in your shoes about a year ago, looking through online reviews to find the best attorney possible to get me through what's been the most troubling period in my life. To make a long story short, I absolutely would not be able to write this well-deserved review today were it not for knowledge, experience, and intuition exhibited from my lawyer, Lance Fryrear. I was facing upwards of two years in jail and $10,000 in fines from two separate charges... What did I actually walk away with? Time served (overnight in jail), completion of prescribed treatment programs, and a couple years of staying out of trouble - all stemming from what can only be described modestly as a 'complex' case. In the hands of a lesser adept litigator, I probably would have been toast.
You may have noticed that I only gave him 4/5 on 'Kept me informed' - well there's a good reason for that. He told me something early on in the case that absolutely had come true - his greatest strength is his ability to read the situation on your day of court... No doubt about it. Once he convinces you of that, some of the tension and stress of the days drawn out leading up to your court date are alleviated after you see him in action for the first time – hence, keeping up constant communication wasn’t particularly necessary.
His experience and knowledge of the DV courts, as far as what preemptive steps to take and formulating the best strategy prior to your day in court is outstanding, don't get me wrong. But what sets Lance apart is his ability to navigate the court room on the day of, from the judge to the prosecuting attorney. He somehow knows what's going to work based on the myriad factors of subjectivity (personalities, case loads, current legal climate of your district, etc). It's the interpretation of these things that one could only assess specifically in the moments before you are actually in front of the judge where Mr. Fryrear's performance is best described in one word: masterful!
I'm still in a bit of shock (only three days removed from my last court appearance), but it's the best kind of shock I've ever experienced. He has absolutely been a life saver, and after just a few minutes of conversation, you'll probably realize the best part - he really does care. He cares for you during your darkest hours, and is genuinely concerned about the best possible outcome. My life would be in a much less favorable position right now had I not called Lance Fryrear. I wish you the best of luck in finding an attorney that suits your needs, but if you’re willing/able to do what it takes and can trust your life in the hands of another person, there’s no better hands you could choose.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have Lance as my lawyer. Lance and his team were very professional, knowledgeable, and hard-working. Lance took his time with my case and made sure my outcome was positive. If not for Lance and his team there is no telling what would have happened in the courtroom. Great job Lance and thanks for everything.

I hired Lance for a physical control case and I had no chance of getting out of it. It was going to be difficult to get a good outcome. Some how, some way he worked his magic and got it reduced to a Reckless driving with no jail time and a low fine. Lance did an amazing job and I would recommend him to anyone.

I was recently served a protection order due to an alleged assault. That was the very first time I had to deal with such a traumatic experience. Although I had to endure the anguish and uncertainty of the outcome, the two motions to continue requested by the petitioner’s lawyer were indeed a blessing in disguise as it guided me to retain Attorney Fryrear with only a few days remaining prior to the rescheduled hearing date. He graciously returned my phone call to set up a meeting at his law office. My wife and I were extremely impressed by his candor and compassion. We never felt rushed during our appointments with him as he thoroughly discussed our options. My confidence then suddenly soared knowing that I was going to be represented by a reputable lawyer. At the hearing, he succinctly presented his counter argument in a calm but firm demeanor. He was able to contend convincingly that the alleged assault was inadvertent. So while the judge granted the protection order, it was only for 6 months (petitioner requested more than 1 year). I was also relieved that the other requests in the petition were not granted. My wife and I believed that Attorney Fryrear was truly a God-send. His flat-fee rate for a civil case was reasonable. I am definitely recommending him to relatives and friends. Attorney Fryrear, my heartfelt thanks to you. You truly deserve the superb rating from your clients.

Lance was very helpful with my case with theft and cheating at gambling, and as someone who knows nothing about what to do in this circumstances, I went straight with Lance to get it all situated. He was very professional and exceeded my needs in a timely and efficient matter. He is an extremely friendly and caring attorney that works his very best on each case that he is given. The confidence that I had for him resulted in a positive result. I highly recommend him and would use him in a heartbeat!!

Lance has been a great help for my Assault 4 case. He gladly and thoroughly answered any questions that I had and got me the result that I was hoping to obtain. I was shopping for attorneys, and he actually took the time to get to know who I was on a personal level rather than trying giving me a shady sales pitch. Despite having the intimidating last name, "Fryrear," I did not get my rear fried, and he helped me get the outcome that I wanted. Thanks Lance!

A lot of communication and always kept me up to date on every single step of the case. Made sure I did everything I was supposed to do. I had no idea what was going to happen going into the case but after I hired Lance my confidence went way up and I wasn't so nervous. I will highly recommend Lance to anyone!

Back in June of this year I was arrested for a no contact violation. To make a long story short I was charged with a domestic violence charge in another county in Washington. I was pulled over with my wife in the vehicle. Lance was able to get the charges fully dismissed based on the fact that the traffic stop was not done correctly nor was the no contact order valid. I originally found Mr. Fryrear on AVVO. I called his office on Monday morning shortly before my court appearance and within minutes he returned my call. After my initial hearing I immediately went to his office and hired him. Very glad that I did. I already had an attorney for the original charge which was also dropped. Thanks again Lance, glad that I found you on here.
