Arlene helped me gain guardianship of my mentally ill brother. I was hesitant to start the process fearing any legal complications. Arlene walked me through it with professionalism and a warm heart. She kept me informed of all the steps needed to complete the process. She was a delight to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone. She is outstanding!!!!!!!!!

Arlene took our case and represented us in every detail with expert professionalism. We were so fortunate to have found her. This was a custody case to protect a grandchild. We would not have known what to do without her. Her calm demeanor is comforting just when I needed it most, and her confidence going forward was reliable and sure. She was helpful to us with the cost, and took our unfortunate position on as a personal mission, especially when the other side became uncooperative. She is small, but plenty tough enough. A very wise, kind person, I can't recommend her highly enough. I call her our "angel" - the kind you want on your side, demands fairness.

I have had an excellent client relationship with Arlene Joe. In the beginning, I was very confused about the entire process and had unrealistic expectations. I had to restructure a parenting plan under some difficult circumstances. She was very patient and clear about what I could expect and yet helped me craft a plan that was unique to my needs. Her thorough knowledge and excellent preparation kept my case going in the direction it needed to go. She worked with a subtle and yet very firm hand on my behalf. I think her best strength is discovering what I needed, being realistic about what could be wrought, and then crafting a clear parenting plan for it. She was excellent dealing with the other parties as well--I was pleased her firmness and integrity.

Arlene is amazing. Very professional and extremely well respected by judges. She was responsive and knowledgeable. Ours was a custody case for our granddaughter. We found Arlene to be compassionate and fair. She was able to prod the lawyers on the other side to do their job too.

I can't imagine having anyone else help me through the process of guardianship. Arlene was attentive, knowledgeable and compassionate every step of the way. I would recommend her to anyone needing this type of legal assistance. She is amazing!

Ms. Joe has worked with me on numerous guardianship cases. She is very professional and pleasant to work with, takes time to educate me and the clients as to what guardianships entail, and when a guardianship is appropriate. Ms Joe works quickly and efficiently, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Arlene took a complicated matter to us concerning guardianship of my brother who is developmentally disabled. My father had difficulty locating a lawyer who would take this on in a timely manner. Arlene helped us through the process of becoming co-guardians. What we really like about Arlene is her communication style. We were always in the loop. She is very thorough and was in contact with all involved. I received almost immediate responses to all my questions during the time we worked together. The process from start to finish was smooth. We now have peace of mind thanks to Arlene.

My grandmother had a stroke last year. I have a very complicated family
dynamic and I was feeling extremely overwhelmed when I was given Arlene's 'number. She not only assisted me in becoming my grandmothers legal guardian but continues to guide me through every
step of the way. She has given me excellent advise and I think she is an amazing and excellent attorney. I highly recommend her .

What a blessing to find Arlene Joe in January, 2013, through the Washington State Bar Association's Moderate Means Program! At that time, I had been fighting for Non-Parental custody of my grandson since 2011. After an absolutely dreadful experience with another attorney, Arlene took my case; and at a greatly reduced rate. She had to start from scratch and re-do everything the previous attorney had mishandled. Arlene handled everything with professionalism, efficiency and grace. She always treated me (and my daughter, the respondent) with kindness and compassion; while at the same time, being firm with me when I was emotional, and at one of the lowest point in my life. She helped me be strong, always telling me I was doing the right thing. She kept me going when I wondered if I should give up. Arlene has been very attentive and responsive, even returning an email from Alaska when I needed her! She recommended mediation to try to avoid a trial, and in July, 2013, I was awarded custody of my little grandson. It would never have happened without Arlene! She is, without a doubt, the best attorney I have ever worked with. I have…and will continue to…HIGHLY RECOMMEND Arlene Joe!
