    • I recommend Joan Mell.
    • I hired Joan 1-3 years ago.
    • Joan handled my Discrimination matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Joan handles very difficult cases, the one's that have political and social implications, and is very skilled at navigating this treacherous waters! Most attorneys won't take these cases (involving opposing school districts, the county prosecutor, the gambling commission, DSHS, medical regulatory bodies, other government agencies, employers, etc. She is not afraid to go after the opposition if the facts and legal arguments are sound. I was very pleased with the representation and outcome even though it took over two years to resolve.

    • I do not recommend Joan Mell.

    Ms. Mell is a very high priced attorney who cannot be trusted to keep the promises she makes. She promised to handle a secondary aspect of my case on a contingency fee basis, then became unresponsive when it came time for her to step to the plate.

    Also, after hiring her and paying her exorbitant fees, I also learned that she had political connections, and in fact was a former executive, of the agency against which I was proceeding. She never revealed this to me prior to taking my case and I now question the adequacy of her counsel.
