I hired Kim and McKinley Irvin to represent me in divorce. Unfortunately my divorce was turn to complex case by my ex. Kim helped me to pass it and protected my interests: parenting and financials. She kept me informed about all steps and provided reasonable solutions. She helped me to be with my child during divorce period (including overnights) and to established awesome parenting plan. I would recommend Kim for complex cases, to protect interest of parent to be with child.

From the moment I met Kim Schnuelle, I was treated with care, respect, and understanding. Kim has a tenacity and professionalism unmatched. I was kept up to date almost everyday for the grueling ten months of my divorce. I know that without Kim's representation, I would have been in a horrible situation. My ex's lawyer made the mistake of trying to go up against Kim. I recommend Kim to anyone who will listen. The divorce process is not a fun one to say the least, but when you have an attorney of Kims caliber, things are manageable. You can relax a little because you are heard, respected, involved every step of the way and she takes care of business. I cannot thank her enough.

I went through a very difficult and lengthy child support case. I live in another state, and Kim was able to represent me and navigate me through a minefield of issues of which I was previously unfamiliar with. Kim listened sympathetically to my concerns and addressed any questions that I had quickly. I believe Kim's attention to detail and exhaustive knowledge of family law were crucial to achieving the best possible positive result within the WA court system. I highly recommend her for anyone going through a child support case.

My actual divorce was relatively easy however my "ex" who is in the UK decided he wasnted to go for alimony at the last moment. He worked with a very bad lawyer who left everything too late.....so Kim was passionate about keeping him on track so that I didnt become the victim of poor practice. Kims diligence ended in a great outcome for me overall.....and I have already recommended her to a friend - who I know has recommended her already.
Expensive, Impersonal, Outdated style

I hired Kim and McKinley Irvin to represent me in a complex divorce. While Kim is sharp, I did not feel that she made the time to really understand the details and intricacies of my case. I felt like she and her paralegal team at McKinley Irvin were juggling too many cases and I did not get the attention I deserved. I ended up going with an independent lawyer afterwards and felt much better about the quality of service and advice. Also, FYI I did not find Kim's writing style to be effective. The briefs were too embellished and used excessive language and I think our judges/arbitrator could not process the relevant details of her communication. Her paralegal, Molly had a much cleaner and strongly worded writing style.

I was a client of Kim Schnuelle recently. Not only does she send a ton of emails, she bills for every single one. Additionally, I had to send documents and pleadings multiple times and she would lose them. She was not extremely organized. I got regular calls from the accounting department asking for more money and had to spend several thousand dollars for a simple case in addition to travel and hotel expenses to come from out of state. After searching around, I heard things like the firm is "unstable, money hungry and treats their employees like slaves." Sadly I was the victim of the greed. Be sure when selecting an attorney that you do research on the firm itself as some attorneys are forced into unethical billing practices.
Disappointing. Does not live up to expectations.

I hired Kim to represent me in a straightforward divorce case. unfortunately she was unable to reach an acceptable outcome. Sh made several assurances of outcome and made me expect the results i was looking for. The opposing counsel was much more succesful - I often wished i had him in my corner instead of her!

Kim represented me for a year to establish a child support order and a parenting plan. Throughout the process I felt like I was receiving good advice even when it isn't what I wanted to hear and that I was being kept informed of my options and the progress being made on the case. I felt like I could rely on Kim and that she had my best interest at heart. I was especially impressed that everything was handled so smoothly and professionally given that I not only live out of state, but out of country. I would highly recommend Kim.
