    • I recommend Elizabeth Powell.

    I'm used to being treated like a deadbeat dad by the Pierce County court system, even though I have done my best to fight for my rights to be a father to my child. It never failed and in typical fashion the judges always seemed to look after the mother's best interests rather than the child's best interest.
    That all changed after I retained Elizabeth; who not only made opposing party look incompetent, finally provided for a victory in court against a vicious ex-wife, but also counseled me on how to manage a difficult situation with my child.
    Elizabeth handled my case personally and professionally, delivering a result that I could not have imagined based on my previous experience with Pierce County Courts. It was refreshing to deal with a lawyer that cared, which is why I recommend Elizabeth to ANYONE that needs 1) a top notch family law attorney 2) a lawyer that knows the judges in Pierce County 3) a lawyer that knows the law! (not just a paper pusher that can't speak properly in court, which I have seen plenty of in Pierce County)

    Elizabeth was wonderful! We were in a difficult situation with our past landlord and she gave us great advice about the path forward. She was very honest and looked out for our best interest not her own. I highly recommend her!

    Elizabeth stayed up for a period of time during her personal time at home in order to answer my numerous amount of questions regarding tenant-landlord law. She was very helpful and insightful into the law and all of my options. I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. Thanks Elizabeth for the work you do.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Powell.
    • I hired Elizabeth 6-12 months ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Landlord & Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ms. Powell is spectacular not only for her spunk, but for her vigilance and vast knowledge on landlord/tenant rights. I am currently having a major struggle communicating with my landlord as my rental unit is in the process of a short sale. Ms. Powell is helping my daughter and I find better housing as well as work closely with my landlord to come to a reasonable, fair agreement. I highly recommend her because she has heart and cares beyond any dollar sign. Thank goodness for her! I will be forever grateful once all this stress is over and done with. I will post an updated review with results once my case is closed.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Powell.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Residential matter.

    Having an issue with a breach of contract in this case a tenancy contract, the prompt response helped to guide my understanding that additionally to the agreement details there is also for the cases of breach the custom ways of resolving i.e. how the situation is handled would make a solid foundation for a response with all going well (hopefully ..)

    Now that my case is down to the end... I have to post this.
    I am so lucky to have found Ms. Powell. I was stuck in a disagreement with an insurance company over a car accident. She swooped in and saved me. There are no words I can use to express the gratitude I have for this woman.
    I was so stressed and worried over this case, and I was finally able to relax and breathe when she came along. It took no time at all and the other attorney came to an agreement to dismiss the case altogether.
    She is a rockstar, I will recommend her to anyone I know and give EXTREMELY high ratings.
    Thank you SO MUCH Elizabeth, I will keep you in mind if I'm ever in a buckle again.

    I cannot express how wonderful Elizabeth has been to work with. I contacted her after she responded to a question I posted on Avvo... she responded, on a SUNDAY (multiple times!). She is so easy to get a hold of and always responds promptly. She knows her stuff, and I am so glad and grateful for her.
    So many doors were shut in my face, and she was so positive in helping me sort out my issue. I can not say enough wonderful things about her! Thank you SO MUCH Elizabeth!

    Attorney Powell was really a breath of fresh air! I was in a situation with my landlord where the city was not helping and I felt lost and didn't know what to do. From the moment she was introduced to the matter she immediately took action with KNOWLEDGE and aggression. ( before speaking any money at all )

    If you need help, CALL HER!

    • I do not recommend Elizabeth Powell.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Landlord & Tenant matter.

    I hired Elizabeth Powell in feb. this year. She had all my paperwork. Called a lot to schedule appointments and no response. I was having to send letters the apartment complex I live at cause Elizabeth wouldn't do anything! She sent me my paperwork back in June of this year and I'm still having issues with the apartment complex! Now I've had to go to hospital because of fall and the issues where never taken care of from Elizabeth ! All if this will be taken into account in court!
