Let me begin by saying that I specialize in online marketing in order to establish clientele through web presence and I have a great understanding of business negotiations and business in general as that was my field of study in college. Given my experience in that field of expertise I can guarantee you the reviews on this lawyer up to this date are fabricated with the exception of mine. It is no coincidence that the last review on this attorney was over a year ago. I had not discovered this website until after the damage had already been done in my experience. I am hoping I can save the next man/woman from a similar one.
Overall rating: poor. Reason: Beverly had an understanding of my situation to the fullest extent, she did not listen to my needs and she did not keep her end of the deal. While in court she was hesitant to speak to the judge as if she was inexperienced or just plain scared to do so. She failed to make important changes to case documentation and failed to inform me of this until the day of court at which point it was to late. She failed to make a court appearance and sent an unprepared substitute council. Beverly did very little work herself and simply “middlemaned” work being done from a paralegal who I never met and was given very little information about. Beverly and I made an agreement on payment and what the overall case cost would be and what the maximum amount I could afford would be, she agreed then later attempted to bill me double the agreed amount after doing work without my consent, then proceeded to file a withdraw from my case, send me another bill for a larger amount, and finally send that bill to a collection agent. Oh and by the way, what I got out of this headache was a temporary order. Meaning we weren’t even 30% done with documentation and case files in my case.
Responsive: Fair. Reason: I will say she was fair in regards of responsive once I reached out but communication with her directly was so limited I felt no sense of urgency or client care in this area of review.
Knowledgeable: Poor. Reason: If there was an option of giving no stars in this category that would have been my first choice. Not only did she not listen to what I was asking when it came to facts that needed to be address but she actually advised me to not address some facts that in turn not only needed to be addressed but actually would have helped my situation if they were addressed. While meeting with her in person on multiple occasions her response to questions regarding important filings and WA state law was “I’m not sure, I’ll have to check” “I don’t know if that was filde by my, but I think it was”
Kept me informed: Poor. Reason: Beverly was supposed to keep me informed well in advance of any work being performed that I was going to be billed for, She did not. She was supposed to notify me well in advance of any upcoming deadlines or court dates and she did not.
Overall I would say that this experience taught me a lot when shopping for council. I do not recommend anyone going to this attorney or associates.
Beverly was like a lighthouse in a storm. She listened well, provided sound perspective and made my family's best interests her personal priority. She was sensitive to the personal conditions of the opposing party, with whom I wanted to maintain a respectful separation. In other words, the delicacy of the situation was honored and planned around. In the end, I was completely satisfied with the outcome and both parties were able to continuing functioning within healthy new parameters- and I had a new lot on life.
If you are looking for an attorney to exact vengeance and humiliate your "opponent", then look perhaps look elsewhere. If you are looking for someone who uses dignity, humility and hard work to facilitate a brighter future, then this is the council for you. It is possible to live through the seemingly impossible and embrace a win-win outcome toward your new life. This is Beverly's personal mission, and I am grateful to have found it.
I came to Beverly in dire straits. I was in a panic about what I was facing in dealing with a parenting plan modification. I was overwhelmed with paperwork, due dates for court appearances, etc.... After Beverly took the time to review what was on paper, I was without a doubt, feeling incredibly fortunate to have her in my corner. I was able to throw down my daggers and swords and finally breathe. Turns out, since she took the time to actually read in detail what I was dealing with, I never needed any ammunition. Beverly was calm, cool, collected and very importantly, thorough. She helped me see my situation clearly and allowed me to make some decisions that I was unable to make on my own. Her input and insight is profound. She cares, not only for her clients, but for the family. She looked for and helped me find the perfect balance, if there is such a thing in sharing a child. I am quite pleased with the work and support that she provided me. And, it didn't take as long as it could have! My ex and agreed on our new plan in a matter of weeks. I highly recommend Beverly Nored. I believe she could handle the most complicated case to the simplest case because of her composed demeanor and attitude toward her work. Thank you, Beverly. A million times over.
Beverly advised me through a divorce and did the work to accomplish it. She and her assistant responded quickly to my questions all along the way.
She is a very knowledgeable and empathetic lawyer. My divorce was emotional and highly personal process and I felt comfortable to share with her some of the personal details of my life. She patiently answered my questions and guided me through it. She understood my position that my child needs must go first, and worked toward the mediation outcomes which were in favor of the child’s wellbeing after the divorce. She definitely had solid understanding of my complex financial issues. It was also helpful to know that she shared and supported my attitude toward the divorce and my desire to finish the difficult process as soon as possible. I highly recommend her for competent and personal representation.
I would highly recommend Beverly L. Nored. She is very knowledgeable and fair. She works hard at understanding between the lines and best helping her clients. She is also very devoted to her clients. I feel I was represented by a strong woman of integrity. Bev, is also a team player. I felt safe just knowing that she was in the lead on my case.
Bev Nored is an excellent attorney. I had an experience with her when my attorney was not available for an emergency hearing. Nored works in the same office as my attorney so he recommended that she represent me that day. I filled her in on my case and she asked clarifying questions. At court that afternoon she did exactly what I needed and I got the result I wanted. I highly recommend working with Bev, she was sympathetic to my needs while explaining the legal side.
Bev did a great job, putting her heart and soul into our case. At late notice and with the chips down, she pulled together a good defense which resulted in a favorable outcome. Even my wife (petitioner) thanked her for her work. If you want, she might even take time to pray with you before trial.
Bev stepped into a complicated divorce just one month before trial and did an amazing job. She was skilled, insightful, patient and doggedly hard-working. She went the extra mile to make sure we had the best possible legal representation under the circumstances. On top of that, she is a kind and compassionate person, a definite necessity in our case with all the emotional upheaval and distress. She kept us rational and reasonable under pressure. Thank you Bev! Great job.
I would recommend Beverly Lerch to anyone that is in need of a Family law attorney. She was informative, helpful and very knowledgeable. Two Thumbs Up...
