I highly recommend this lawyer: she was compassionate to my situation, well versed in the Washington State laws, creative in her approach, calm and reassuring and diligent in pursuing a favorable outcome.
She saved my bacon.

Emily Beschen is professional, effective, and honest. She was good at keeping me in the loop regarding the necessary details of my case but didn't overwhelm me with information. She advised me on what to do, but ultimately made sure I knew it was my choice how I wanted to proceed. Emily is a fantastic lawyer and I recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Emily is a masterful lawyer and really cares about her clients. I have never been in better hands with an attorney.
Emily worked swiftly and effectively to get to the facts of the case. With Emily's efforts we were able to get this case dismissed within the first day of trail. Hiring Emily was, hands down, one of the best decisions I have made.

When I was charged with discharge of a firearm in the city limits August 2012, I immediately called the Law Offices of Robert Butler. I spoke with Emily and she took my case with no hesitation. As time went on and the case kept getting pushed further and further out, Emily kept me informed with all of the intricacies of the justice system and court proceedings. Once the trial finally got under way, she brought what I like to call "the funk". She was on top of everything. She asked questions...detailed questions and provided vital information for the jury so they would have the entire picture.
After being found not guilty, I went to the police department to retrieve my personal possessions. I was then informed that I would have to undergo a background investigation and mental health check to get my sidearm returned to me. Not sure why this was happening, I gave Emily a call. She told me that she had heard nothing of the sorts and she will check on it. I got a call from Emily the next day and she said that I needed to call the police department and set up a time to go get my personal property. I was ecstatic. Once again, Emily has saved the day....but wait, there is more.
When I picked up my property, I noticed all of my property was not returned to me. I returned to the police department and was informed that it was a policy (city and department) not to return said items because of a liability issue. I was told to speak with the Evidence Unit's supervisor if I had any questions. I did and he informed me of the same policy. Once again, I contacted Emily. Once again, Emily contacted me back and said that I need to call the unit to set up a time to go and retrieve my personal property.
Emily is on point when it comes to getting things done. She is an awesome lawyer. I hope never to have to need her services again, but you can bet you bottom dollar, if the poop hits the fan, I am giving her a call!

Bob Butler and Emily Beschen were a summers breeze when dealing with an ugly situation such as a law suite. I came to them with my problem and after they assessed it, they began to help pro bono. They were very fast and responsive, at least in my dealings with lawyers. They went above and beyond even to help me to attain unemployment. I'd have to say if you have a civil situation with an employer and you don't know what to do, these guys will help you.

Ms Beschen was a huge help in my successful suit of a former employer. She had a through knowledge of the case and the case law that applied. She was always available to answer questions and was very aggressive and tenacious in pursuing facts and information from the opposing counsel. I would highly recommend Ms. Beschen. The support staff in her office is also extremely helpful and always ready to answer a question.

I was recently represented by Miss Beschen in a Civil matter with a former employer, her diligence, clear communication, knowledge of her practice, and tenacity yielded outstanding results which were far beyond even my wildest expectations! I have recommended Emily to others, and would do so again in a heartbeat. Thank you Emily!

Over the course of a year, Emily Beschen has been one of the lawyers representing me in a case involving the First Amendment. In that time, Emily has had to absorb a great deal of complex information in order to put together a solid defense, which has happily resulted in the dismissal of a claim against me.
Emily possesses a keen intellect and a “go-getter” attitude. She also exudes a reassuring presence that has made me feel like I am truly being protected.
The lawsuit against me has been long and certainly stressful, but Emily’s professionalism and effective representation and has made the experience far less traumatic than it could have been.
I highly recommend Emily Beschen.
