    I have worked with Raegen over the years on various committees and pro bono cases, primarily with Legal Voice (formerly the Northwest Women's Law Center). Raegen is smart, thoughtful, and has an ease of manner that encourages everyone in the room to take a breath and think through the most difficult issues carefully, which always ends up being to the benefit of the goal. I also refer potential clients with questions about assisted reproduction and adoption issues to Raegen with full confidence.

  • J. Mark Weiss

    Raegan is a highly intelligent, thoughtful, dedicated, and caring attorney. In addition to being a leader among adoption attorneys, she is an excellent family law attorney. I worked as a mediator on a case where Raegan was an attorney. I observed that Raegan provided her client with excellent technical lawyering skills together with the wisdom of when to employ them and when to not. I highly recommend Raegan as an attorney.
