    I used Brooke Goddard for a fairly complex divorce involving two countries, children and adults with dual nationalities, and the like. He went to bat for me and worked hard to make sure that I fought for what I needed, but had a realistic outlook on what was possible for my divorce. He always responded promptly to my requests and questions and I was very pleased with the outcome of my work with Brooke. I can't recommend him highly enough!

    Brook Goddard worked hard on my behalf to ensure that I obtained a 50/50 parenting plan. After this everything else fell into place and despite a lot of drama coming from my ex Brook was able to stay professional, maintaining focus until the very end. Although lawyers are expensive, Brook saved me thousands in the long run. I would recommend him to anyone going through this tough transition in their life. It pays to have someone so stalwart and professional in your corner when everything in your life seems to be falling apart.

    Brook helped me through a very tough divorce.
    Through the process he helped me get more time with my son. He always responds promptly to email and phone calls and he is very knowledgeable. He works hard to get you a fair outcome.

    Brook helped me feel so comfortable in such an uncomfortable situation. I knew nothing about the divorce process and Brook walked me through, step-by-step, and spoke a language I could understand. He fought for my child and I won full custody! He has a huge heart! He was so responsive to every email and phone call, and in an extremely timely manner. I have referred 3 people to him since my divorce and will continue to do so. He is efficient, trust-worthy and knows the law! Thank you Brook...for everything!

    By all measurements of success in handing my divorce, Brook failed.

    Brook did not fight for my rights for my kids, or protect my financial interest. My ex’s lawyer was successful in all their efforts including severely limiting my access to my kids as well as failing to protect my investments and future financial security.

    Brook just did the paperwork and lost all proceeding with the court. After reflecting on Brook’s lack of ability to effectively fight for my rights, it has become apparent that all Brook was interested in was his billing. As an example, he charged me over $13,000.00 just to handle emails.

    I had another lawyer, who is an expert in lawyer billing, review his bill and his analysis was my bill was out of line based on industry norms.

    Be very careful with this lawyer. I would not recommended him, period!!

    Brook definitely fits the term "put your money where your mouth is!" When Brook says he will do something, he does it! As an attorney Brook is organized, informed, level headed, logical, strategic , honest and professional . On a personal level he is compassionate, diplomatic, reliable, and respectful to all parties involved. He also showed true care and concern for both me as a person and for my specific circumstances/case. Initially Brook tried to find a way to settle my case in a diplomatic and amicable way in the effort of trying to avoid dragging me through a long and expensive process, but once he was clear that the other party didn't share the same goal he quickly shifted gears onto getting prepared for trial. My case was a very unusual one so it took extensive research, documentation, preparation and teamwork to get prepared for trial, but we worked together as a team to gather all of the necessary documentation and supporting evidence and in the end it really paid off, we prevailed!

    I ALWAYS refer people I know and care about to Brook Goddard. He handled my very high-stakes, complex, idiosyncratic marital dissolution in 2012. I was beyond pleased with the final result. Brook's father was also a divorce attorney in Washington State, which, to me, means Brook has literally attended a life-long Washington State Divorce Law IMMERSION COURSE. Despite this enormous selling point, Brook charges lower hourly rates than most of the other, less qualified attorneys. He has a very nice, presentable office in Bellevue, but it's not so lavish that you feel like you are paying for him to live an excessive lifestyle. I really appreciated this. As he is working your case, Brook is constantly on the lookout for ways to provide you with the best possible value. He does not encourage expensive, unnecessary back and forth between the law offices, for example, and he pushes really hard to settle in mediation vs a court battle. If Brook has an area where he could improve, it would be in the details/punctuality department. But, again, I do recommend him, without reservation and if I were going through another divorce, I would use Brook again, without question. He knows exactly what he is doing, will not take advantage of you, and will give you maximum value for your monetary expenditure.

    I had a wonderful experience working with Brook Goddard. His high level of expertise put me at ease through every step of my case. I could count on him to return my phone calls and emails promptly, always able to answer any questions I had clearly, and articulately. In addition to being so likable in general, he is an outstanding attorney, and I would highly recommend him to any friend or family member, with complete confidence.

    My divorce case involved a child and ex-husband with domestic violence. Brook at the time was not knowledgeable on domestic violence. My Ex's lawyer ate Brook up and spit him out and 7 years later I am still paying extremely high consequences for the in-consistencies in the Parenting Plan and child support documentation. As well, he was not knowledgeable when my ex took me back to court for moving. Did not know the process to negate the action and fumbled in court. Needless to say this was expensive, at my expense, emotionally and financially.

    Brook Andrew Goddard’s response: “I'm very sorry to hear about your disappointment, and while it sounds like your feedback concerns proceedings more than 8 years ago, perhaps I can still help. The Court can modify Orders to correct inconsistent order language, or to ensure that orders remain just given current circumstances. If you'd like to call my office I will be happy to consult with you free of charge to see if I can remedy the situation. Brook A. Goddard Goddard Wetherall Wonder, PSC”

    I've had the occasion to work with a number of family law attorneys for various reasons, and Brook is the best I've encountered, on either side of the table. I highly recommend him.
