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!

Arlene is the epitome of professionalism. She was excellent in all aspects handling the guardianship issues with my mother, but above and beyond that she is a warm and caring individual. We would highly recommend Arlene.

So compassionate; able to help me adequately understand the legalese; so generous with her time & talent . Could not have found a more able advocate during this very emotional & trying year following the death of my loved one and the subsequent handling of her estate. Thank You!

I was more than pleased with the services that Arlene Joe provided to me. She was very knowledgeable regarding Family Law and the court rules, She always kept me informed on what was happening with our case and was very quick and responsive to the question I had. It was a very stressful time for me and she made me feel more than comfortable, was very understanding of my case and very personable. I highly recommend Arlene Joe, she provides excellent services.

Arlene Joe, Has been my attorney for over 5 years and has helped my family a lot. I have recommended several of my friends which have also been very happy with her services. I would highly recommend you give her a call and see what I mean. She shows caring and understanding right away and a real down to earth person to talk to. Talks to you not "AT YOU". She is still working an ongoing case for me. It is always a pleasure to have her working with my family.
Thank You for the opportunity to express my experiences with her. You will also get the feeling she is working for you to help you.

I have been working with Arlene Joe since August 2012 and she was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, efficient and even though she needed her fees paid by the hearing date she was very flexible letting us split those fees up into 2-3 payments, paid by the date of our court hearing. She really knows her stuff and writes excellent declarations. My advice is if anybody chooses Arlene Joe as their attorney that they be honest with her in order to make her better able to represent them.

We worked as hard as we could to get everything sent to her. She was very pushy and then when it came time to setup a payment schedule she said we were untrustworthy due to the fact that we couldn't pay exactly on date she wanted due to our loss if job and had to pay 7 days later. Then went on to say how we were hiding things
