Great experience!!!
I hired Mrs. Evans to defend me on a TPO case that my wife filed against me. I was very nervous and scared but Mrs. Evans and her team put me at ease and walked me through the process. She was very thorough and precise. I ended up winning my case and could not thank Mrs. Evans enough for her great help in assisting me. I highly recommend her and I am currently using her again to file for divorce! All in all it was a great experience despite the circumstances of my case!

Sharp & competent
Ms. Evans is a great attorney. She works very hard and understands the system and how to get results. Ms. Evans worked out my case before we ever got to court and I was very pleased with the outcome. She is my go-to for criminal/traffic and personal injury. I highly recommend BRE Law.

Excellent service, cares about client needs.
Barbara, was extremely helpful and through throughout my case. To make matters more challenging she did this long distance as I live Seattle 2600 miles away. During the court case Barbara was able to expose many great points to help my case leaving me with great results. I would highly recommend her to anymore dealing with family law and especially representing a man in court. 5 stars

Awesome and helpful lawyer
Barbara is a very skillful and knowledgeable lawyer. She took my case on when no one was willing to help me and got me one step closer to where I want to be. I will definitely call her again when I need her for the future as my case is not one that will go away until my kids are grown adults. I will always think highly of Barbara she was really there for me when I needed a lawyer who would fight and will fight for my rights.

Prompt and professional
I hired Attorney Evans for a family member who was incarcerated and was sitting in jail with no to minimal representation. From the first call she listened to my concerns, told me her plan of action and went to work. She was prompt, professional and compassionate. She is very knowledgeable of the laws and will go over and beyond to assist you. My entire family appreciates what she did for our family member.

Barbara was very helpful with initiating reimbursement for the food poisoning we endured in Dec 2014. Not only did she inform us of the insurance provisions, but at every step of the way performed all the follow-ups. She was terrific and on point

Barbara Made Justice Affordable
I recently hired Barbara to defend my daughter in a child custody matter. I can't tell you how many attorneys I had called and been quoted exorbitant fee amounts that I just could not afford. Barbara understood my situation and gave me a payment plan so affordable, I felt it was unfair to her so I paid it out even sooner than she agreed to accept. In addition to being affordable: Babara's service to my daughter was EXCELLENT: And even though I was the financier, Barbara was very professional and would not hesitate to tell my that my daughter was her client. Barbara was always very truthful and forthcoming; she never lead us to believe that we should expect outcomes that were not probable. She was very objective would agree to seek whatever outcome we would ask of her, but Barabara would always encouraged us to harness our emotions and do what was in the best interest for the child. I appreciate Barbara SO VERY MUCH! Though I know my attitude did not always conveyed it. Barbara, if you read this message. Please know that HM &KW really appreciate you! Our case had a GREAT outcome!! My daughter retained custody of her son and received almost 3 times the amount of child support that she had been willing to accept from my grandson' father in a private agreement outside of the court. In fact the support order was so large that my daughter actually felt bad for her son's father and requested the court lessen the amount to make it more affordable for him. I am certain that we would not have gotten the outcome that we did without Barbara. I am eternally grateful.
