Charlie Shane was able to assist me with my divorce process smoothly and efficiently, always keeping me in the loop with consistent phone calls and updates regarding my case. I would recommend him to any friend! Exhibited the utmost professionalism and made my divorce process go smooth and painless. So far I have used him twice and if I ever need an attorney again, he will be the first to call. Outstanding attorney and terrific and understanding human being!
Looking for any legal guidance and/or representation has always made me feel as though I was being judged; sized up based on my case. Will they make enough from me to made it worth their wild to deal with MY troubles? I talked to may lawyers and did not feel like they wanted to help unless they did it their way, got paid upfront ( thousands, NOW ), and none of my financial, emotional, nor physical well being mattered to them. Not their problem unless I can afford it to be.
Then I got to Charlie Shane on my list, I experienced a different kind of lawyer right off the bat... a real person who cared.
Charlie has been extremely understanding of how overwhelmed I got while trying to figure out my legal papers and what I needed to be doing with them. He gave me great encouragement and broke it all down for me to understand what to do and why. Being able to talk to a lawyer that has my financial situation in mind is more than just rare, Charlie works hard on keeping the cost as affordable as possible while taking the time necessary to make sure everything is done the best way possible, and that I felt comfortable and prepared for my next step.
If you are looking for a lawyer that is welcoming, friendly, has your best interest in mind and is not just trying to get through another case, I strongly recommend contacting Mr. Shane.... but you'll end up calling him Charlie soon too.
Thanks Charlie for helping me though this hard time in my life!
I was in need of some legal advice for my divorce and custody case and Mr. Shane was very patient and was nice enough to take the time to review my case. He was able to give me some very good advice which helped me feel more confident and allowed me to make an informed decision. He was very knowledgeable and had a very positive attitude. He made me feel very sure that he would be a very capable and effective attorney.
It all started when my daughter called me last day before her summer began. She did not get her summer reading book because my ex-wife told school that my daughter would relocate to China in the next school year. All I knew was that my ex told me that she agreed my daughter should stay in Bellevue when she worked in China. It turned out that my ex secretly filed notice of relocation without my knowledge 4 months ago! Under the risk of default relocation, I hired Charlie immediately to stop it. Charlie was very responsive. He quickly put together a plan and set up a trial. The relocation attempt by my ex was stopped. In the mean time, my ex started to change her position back and forth between relocating and status quo. That made it difficult to change parenting plan. Charlie kept things on track with pressure of the scheduled trial. He suggested me to get declarations from people who are aware of our situation. One thing that he impressed me the most is that Charlie pays attention to all details. He helped me to prepare for the declarations. All facts were captured accurately and then presented in very a powerful and convincing way. In the end, my ex came to realization that she would not get her way and last minute deal was reached. I got what I wanted. My daughter stays in US and I become primary parent!!! I definitely recommend Charlie's team. I will hire him again in future if any issues come up.
Charlie helped me win my temporary custody case against an abusive ex. He was able to help me immediately on short notice. My exes patents had hired him a very expensive defense lawyer who ended up walking all over me during the previous protection order hearing. If it weren't for Charlie, I'd have lost custody of my little angel and I'd be paying child support to my abusive ex! Charlie was willing to work with me on a flexible rate to continue representing me after the temporary order was signed, because he didn't want to see them take me to trial and get trampled again. He really seems to care. And he knows how to fight for what's right for me. Thank you Charlie!
Charlie help me with my situation and was able to resolve it in a very timely manner without having to have the courts involved at all
For the first time in my life, at 40, I found I needed a lawyer to help me establish child support for my baby. Charlie was very easy to speak to got me everything I asked for. He made the legal system easy to navigate, and was always prompt and respectful.
I hired Charlie to represent me in a divorce case. I was instantly impressed when surveying attorneys that Charlie took time himself to answer my questions and asses my case over the phone. I followed up with an initial consultation and retained him directly. Throughout the process Charlie was always open, honest, efficient, creative and helpful. When we disagreed on items he always took the time to educate me on my options and stated objectively why he formed his opinion. He was flexible with his approach, and was always well prepared. Ruby, the other attorney in Charlie's office is also a pleasure to work with. Ultimately, we were able to reach a settlement quickly that was very reasonable. Although the circumstances were difficult, I was pleased to get the opportunity to work with Charlie, and when I need legal services in the future I would not hesitate to retain him again.

After wasting money on multiple attorneys over time that had no clue how the family law process works we hired Charlie. We had a long and contentious battle over child support adjustment and Charlie took the time to understand the case, learn about the finances, and deal with the complicated dynamics at hand. His arguments are thorough and services are of good value. He was not intimidated by the bulldog on the other side and laid out a clear and concise case.

Mr. Shane is compassionate yet decisive. He works for you and does all he can to make the process bearable. He gathered the information needed, returned calls and emails in a timely manner. He explained the terminology and process of the filings as well as the court procedure involved in my case. From easy to difficult he is there to support you.
