Ruth is unique in that she is both one of the 2 or 3 best-prepared lawyers I have encountered in 23 years of practice, and also one of the most trustworthy and humane. I now go to her when I need a citation to an obscure legal case and I would go to her if, god forbid, I were getting divorced. You could not make a better legal choice.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Ms. Edlund is one of the most thorough lawyers I've met. Although I've known her for many years, I had the great fortune of being in a trial with her a few years back. It was wonderful seeing her litigation work. She had every conceivable issue briefed, her client compassion was high, and she has a very assertive presence in the courtroom. A pleasure to see one of the town's finest lawyers at work.

I have known Ruth Edlund ever since she was boss of the King County Bar Association's Family Law Mentor program, which is where I learned family law. For many years now, Ruth Edlund has been one of the best family law attorneys in the State of Washington. Her high IQ, knowledge like an encyclopedia, tremendous energy, creativity, fighting spirit, many years of experience, and genuine caring for her clients make her an excellent choice for anyone with a family law problem. She is now with the Wechsler Becker law firm in downtown Seattle, the most prestigious family law firm in the state, where she is surrounded by colleagues who can help out when needed. You can't do better than Ruth Edlund!
