I don't even know where to begin. Philip's character truly shines through in his service. I was able to fully trust his judgments and could tell he had my best interests in mind at all times. He even tried to get the case to settle early multiple times. In the end though, the outcome was strongly in my favor thanks to his preparation and strategy. I was very impressed by his quick intellect.
My favorite attribute however is the human aspect. As I was walking into this situation blind with no knowledge in what to do, his guidance was key and at all times, I felt he was extremely respectful and willing to hear me out on how I wanted the case handled.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Philip to anyone in need of a family law attorney. He will deliver top notch results and you will know you hired the best.
Phil did excellent job for me going through the divorce, finalizing parenting plan through a mediator at the end. He is highly experienced, hardworking and TALANTED lawyer. He knows what he is doing, pay attention to details. When I hire Phil I felt very safe, without stress at all and felt that I am in a good hands. I will definitely recommend Phil.
I would highly recommend Phil Tsai, for anyone, going through a divorce, one of the most difficult passages of life, for both spouses. I went through this passage after a long term marriage, with deep emotional conflicts, and I was very glad that I hired Phil Tsai to represent me. He is not only a smart, experienced lawyer, but he is an excellent communicator who understands not only the legal process but also comprehends the human interactions during the process. My case had hard complex issues, with high emotions and high assets. He listened carefully and assessed the complexities with a human ear, and not just a legal pad.
Although there must be other good, competent divorce attorneys in the area, I think Phil Tsai is probably exceptional in that he helped me, as his client, to understand and navigate the “inherently adversarial process” and to keep focus on what is really important and come out with a legal/financial fair outcome. Without his calm legal guidance, I would have fallen off the cliff. I believe that Phil Tsai’s intelligent legal steps and steadfast, strong negotiations were very effective. He is a respectful attorney, and despite his busy practice, he always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner.
In the end, you have to trust your attorney to work hard and do the best to represent you, and that’s what Phil Tsai did. He helped me get through the legal maze, protect my position when things got rough, then kept me in focus, and arrived at a fair settlement.
I would recommend Phil Tsai to anyone, any age, without reservations. He is an excellent attorney with a smart brain and a good heart.
Phil did an excellent job guiding me through a 20 month Divorce proceeding. Even though Mediation failed and we had to go through JDR with a Judge it worked in my favor. I had to endure a longer Divorce which of course encures more lawyer fees but in the end it was all worth it. We were going to settle with 5 years of spousal support after 22 years of Marriage but going through JDR bumped the Spousal support to 7 years. I had never hired a Lawyer before so this was my first experience and I really think Phil is an excellent advocate especially as it relates to your interests and well being. I would highly recommend the Tsai firm.
Phil has helped me with ongoing litigation that my ex-husband has put me through and continues to do for the past three years since our divorce has been finalized. Phil has won several of our cases thanks to his expertise and knowledge of the law. I could not be more pleased with our decision to drop my old attorney, and make the financial sacrifice it took to hire Phil, and recoup the money lost through my ex-husband not financially supporting our son appropriately. Now, I am receiving the child support that I had missed out on for over a year. Thank you Phil!
I've been represented by Phil Tsai since 2006. I trust him 100% and he's never steered me wrong in all of these years.
We've been to court, mediation and depositions and each time his calm manner, knowledge of the law and advice to me has resulted in the best outcome every time -- My daughter is thriving and happy due to the equal time she's been able to spend with me since she was 2 years old (she'll be 12 soon).
She may never realize it but i will always be grateful to Phil Tsai for helping my daughter to remain at the school she started at & for the incredibly strong, close relationship she & I are able to have due to our time together -- It's likely these positive outcomes would never have been possible without Phil sticking with me every step of the way.
Phil is a sharp, pragmatic and effective lawyer. He negotiated a quick and favorable settlement on my behalf. He is compassionate, responsive and a good communicator.
Phil was my family law attorney for about a 12 month period in 2012-2013. We had to enter temporary orders with King County Court, as well as finalize the divorce through a mediator at the end. Throughout the year, Phil was incredibly professional, always prepared for our meetings and conf. calls and our two very critical meetings with the judge and mediator and excellent at talking me through the various steps in the process. He strikes an important balance between doing what is best for his clients and knowing what will result in the best outcome from a legal perspective. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I started this process with very little knowledge of divorce law. He guided me step by step the whole way and made sure I had the best possible outcome. I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me. He helped me understand everything, held my hand when I was scared and supported me the whole way. I am very happy with the settlement and spousal support I received. Thank you Phil for everything.
Phil was extremely helpful and respectful during my divorce process. I don't know what I would have done without his help.
