I have rated this law firm with 5 stars. Bruce's team, and included him, are professional , honest and are very explicit when talking to you about your case. They give you options and help guide you to your goal. I give thumbs up to Malinda, the paralegal, who answered questions and always returned my calls immediately. If you want a firm that gets the job done, this firm is for you.

Bruce Clement and his team did a wonderful job during my very complicated divorce. There were some turns of events that were handled with professionalism and knowledge I never could have imagined. Some of these events included one of my children not being biologically mine, working with my ex who moved out of state, and getting jurisdiction transferred from that state to Washington. The other thing that impressed me was that I was always given options based on what Bruce and his team had seen in the past. Every judge we saw during this entire process praised Bruce for his professionalism and for having absolutely "everything in order as usual", to quote one judge. Clement Law Center is located in King County and my divorce was in Pierce County. The judicial system knows Bruce over a very wide area and every response is positive. Thank you Bruce, Peter, and Shelly for everything.

My ex husband and I did much of the divorce paperwork on our own. I took the draft documents to Bruce for him to look through and provide any suggestions. He was very thorough with the documents and had a list of questions and suggestions prepared when I met with him for one hour.
Bruce was very friendly and the atmosphere of the office is calm. Bruce put me at ease during, what could have been, a very hard conversation.
I only needed Bruce for a consolation but had I needed to hire an attorney, I would hire Bruce in a heartbeat.
He understands families and how the system works with divorces that involve children.
If you are looking for either a consultation or to hire an attorney, I suggest meeting with Bruce.

Bruce has appeared before me for mediation and arbitration work in family matters. His knowledge of the issues and skill in presentation has always been first class. He works well with his clients. He has a grasp of the nuances required to deal with personal issues and has handled complicated matters with skill and finesse. Highly rated.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Bruce is a tireless worker on behalf of his personal injury clients. He is willing to take on the tough cases and is excellent in cross-examining the other side. If you have a personal injury claim I would recommend Bruce Clement to get to the heart of the case and advocate for you in obtaining the best settlement possible.
