I was referred to Tara from a friend who got her name from one of his friends. She is smart and knows her stuff but is spread way too thin. I never felt like a priority because she was constantly working on other things. I understand and hope she has other clients, but just a check in at least once a week would have been nice. I had to constantly keep on her to find out information. She would take forever to respond. Things that should have been resolved in two weeks took six. I'm sure her skills are solid, but her people skills are in serious doubt. I would not recommend Tara unless this is your second or third divorce and know about the process. First timers - stay away if you want to feel like someone has your back.

In August 2011 I entered into a very contentious divorce. I had retained Tara only days prior to being served with papers containing horrendous allegations against me. Tara not only navigated the initial chaotic phases with success but also steered me toward an ultimately favorable resolution over a year later. Throughout the process, which remained acrimonious for the duration, I found Tara to be responsive, efficient, tactical and extremely competent. She was a calming force for me and worked collaboratively with the opposing counsel, though knew when to get more aggressive. Tara is personable and kind, but also able to be tough and advocate whole heartedly for her client. I am blessed to have had her in my corner.

Tara has been my attorney since my divorce blew up in 2004. She has represented me through a series of ongoing post-decree issues and has provided sound counsel on child support, parenting plan, relocation, temporary restraining order and contempt matters. She is aggressive when the situation warrants, yet has a good grasp on practical advice and an ability to weigh the costs and benefits of pursuing a legal remedy. I recommend her highly.

Tara Richardson is an extremely helpful, responsive, candid, and thorough lawyer; she's also very likeable - and cool too.
Tara was much better prepared than any of the other lawyers I saw in action at our hearing: in command of her brief, confident and clear in addressing the judge, and unflappable throughout.
She is very matter-of-fact about the law, and has always been quick to correct any naivity; Tara has never encouraged any unrealistic optimism on my part.
She has been a great source of confidence and reassurance for me in my case. I wholeheartedly recommend Tara Richardson to anyone in Seattle who needs a great family lawyer.

I have been a client of Tara's for over 2 years now. She was recommended by a friend, and I can see why. She's extremely sharp, professional, yet down to earth. I liked her immediately and she's done a GREAT job for me. I highly recommend her with Excellent Ratings across the board!
