    • I recommend John Bonin.

    I worked for Mr. Bonin for approximately 2.5 to 3 years in Wenatchee, while he was an associate with Foreman & Arch, PLLC. 1999 - 2001. His energy toward his work made me want to work harder. His knowledge of the law and continuous training helped me thrive in my job. We worked together as a team, even though we were the "associate and his secretary." Mr. Bonin would not only inform me of his needs regarding the case, but included the client history and reasoning behind his needs to allow me to think ahead and help trouble-shoot the needs of our clients.
    He never belittled me, but instead explained if I made a mistake.
    Together, we conquered civil cases, family law, real estate, and estate planning.
    Mr. Bonin was a very intellectual and intelligent counsel.
    It has been over 10 years since I have worked for Mr. Bonin, but we continue to keep in touch. I wish I could remember more of our work history, but I was quite green, (Very new to the legal field) and everything I do today in my legal career is because of what I learned from Mr. Bonin years ago. He was patient and shaped me into the secretary that I have become.

    • John handled my Landlord / Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I am low-income (disabled) and utilize the Avvo website. I posted a question on Avvo and Mr. Bonin posted a reply. I then contacted him by email and he was of such tremendous help. He responded timely and offered legal counsel by providing recommendations and resources! I am so grateful!!

    • I recommend John Bonin.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Licensing matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    John Bonin is the most highly skilled, capable and ethical attorney I have ever known. He recently represented me and my private investigations agency in a complex and extremely challenging business matter. I firmly believe that absent Mr. Bonin's superior representation and sage legal counsel, I would not have enjoyed the VERY favorable outcome I achieved. I have also worked with John on civil rights cases, and he is superior in this arena as well. My wife and I recently entrusted and empowered Mr. Bonin and his law firm to handle ALL of our legal affairs. I trust him implicitly.

    • John handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    My husband and I have been clients of John Bonin for about 7 years. He's handled several varied issues for us that required in depth research and trial skills. His attention to the details of a case made a huge difference which resulted in positive outcomes on every issue he's handled for us. Along with his partner, Julie Cook, they are a formidable force and fought hard on our behalf, winning a case set before the state supreme court. We recommend John Bonin & Julie Cook without reserve.

    • I recommend John Bonin.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Construction / Development matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Mr. Bonin is very professional. He has a unique ability to decipher what I was trying to get across, reiterate my needs, and present a gameplan tailored to me specifically. He always kept me in the loop, emailed me with current updates and responded to my phone calls and emails immediately, in less than 24 hours. His fees are very reasonable and he saved me money on fees charging me incrementally which I so dearly appreciated. I will continue to have him as my attorney on any subsequent legal needs our familiy might have in the future. His staff is also very professional and courteous.
