About Bita

Learn Bita’s areas of practice.

Bita has been practicing family law in King and Snohomish Counties since 2004.  Her practice areas include divorce, parenting plans, child support, relocations, post-dissolution enforcement matters, and domestic violence.  

 

Bita strives to help her clients reach an amicable resolution, and avoid unnecessary conflict and trips to the courthouse.  Being involved in divorce and litigation can be difficult and stressful. Her goal is to reduce the impact litigation and divorce can have on everyone involved, especially the children. 

 

Decisions made during this process can have long-lasting results.  Bita believes that maintaining an amicable and collaborative approach, helps her clients gain control of their case and their own financial future and decisions affecting their children. 

 

However, going forward in an amicable and collaborative manner is not appropriate in some cases, especially those that involve domestic violence and abuse.  Therefore, when litigation becomes necessary, Bita will advocate and fight tirelessly for her clients and help them obtain optimal results.

Much more than an attorney!
I think I lucked out because it was by chance I got introduced to Bita. After a pretty bad stint with my last divorce attorney, I approached Bita with caution. But the moment our first call ended I knew there was something strategically different about her. Having interacted with a fair amount of divorce attorneys, her questions, her point of view of approaching the case and her unwavering belief that a divorce case should meet long term objectives esp when a child in involved were such a relief to me as a single mom. I can go on and on about her but if I have to summarize, Bita will ensure that you get what is justified without even you having to ask for it, she will represent you with kindness which has a hidden fierceness about it and she has a heart of gold. Bita, I can never thank you enough!

Thank you Bita!
I was really happy with the work Bita did as my attorney. She was very responsive, answered calls and emails promptly, gave me great advice and helped me to navigate an extremely stressful episode in my life. She is fair minded and empathetic while working hard for her clients. She helped me to get the results that I hoped for in my divorce when I wasn't sure it would be possible. And I was able to maintain a positive relationship with my ex. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal counsel.

Invaluable Counsel
I was referred to Bita at the crux of a very dramatic, and scary event in my life that involved the immediate safety of my, then, three year old daughter. Bita provided comprehensive advice and strategy that turned out to be the *most* invaluable aspect of my case. Had I not received such sound, experienced information it would have severely altered the course of our lives for many years. I am so grateful and wholeheartedly recommend Bita

Thoughtful, practical and effective
Bita did a great job advising me and executing on my recent divorce. She provided practical advice based on my situation and helped me work through some contentious financial issues. She is also very balanced, answering tough questions like, if you were representing my wife, what would you be advising her? She is very responsive, easy to talk to, and took care of all the filing details promptly. Highly recommended.

Bita Soltan-Qurraie was diligent, economical, and very responsive to my inquiries. If you need an attorney that is collaborative, empathetic but practical, she is your best choice. Bita helped me get through a very difficult case. She kept me focused on the issues at hand, but also allowed room for emotion to play out when needed. She had just the right amount of business practicality and empathy to help me make great decisions. This allowed us to negotiate a settlement prior to going to trial. I highly recommend Bita for her expertise, guidance, patience, and winning attitude! Debra Batterson

Mrs. Soltan-Qurraie will fight for you!
I hired Mrs. Soltan-Qurraie to assist me with my divorce. She was the second lawyer that I had interviewed and when I met her I just knew that she would do everything in her power to protect me and my children from my emotionally destructive husband. I wasn't just another client to her I was someone who mattered. Throughout the divorce process Mrs. Soltan-Qurraie went above and beyond being my lawyer, she would take my calls after hours when things got 'bad' and would inform me of my legal rights and what steps I needed to take to keep my children and myself safe. During mediation she fought for me and made sure that I left my failed marriage with what I deserved. Mrs. Soltan-Qurraie says that she has a battle ax when she works. That battle ax has given me a new life where I can raise my children in a home free of abuse. If you are looking for a lawyer that knows the law and will defend you, you need to give Mrs. Soltan-Qurraie a call.

The BEST lawyer I have ever worked with.
I met with A LOT of lawyers for my divorce and I am so incredibly grateful that I got to work with Bita and have continued to do so over the years. She is fair but firm and also understands that any divorce has an emotional side that comes into play. She has continued to be my lawyer for anything that has come up over the last 10 years since by divorce and is the only one I refer people to. I cannot say enough good things about her as lawyer and a person.

Client
I originally hired Bita in 2010 when my ex was trying to gain custody of our daughter. Bita helped me navigate filing papers myself to have the case dismissed rather than charging me a huge amount for something I could do myself. In 2016, I reached out again and started talking with Bita about my needs in family court. I didn't take any action until 2019 but Bita was there for the 3 years in between to seek advise and direction. After our case was filed in 2019, Bita quickly discovered my case was out of her scope of work and did not hesitate to refer me to a collogue who was better suited for my case. Even after I was no longer a paying client, Bita continued to help when I had questions, frustrations or needed something about my case explained. Not only is Bita well versed in court proceedings and law but she has a wonderful personality, great demeaner and is a compassionate and ethical attorney. I honestly hope I never need a family law attorney again, but if I did, Bita would be the FIRST one I would call!

Incredible at what she does
Bita is highly knowledgeable and personable, and I felt immediate confidence in her instinct and ability to achieve the most positive outcome possible. I was overwhelmed by my situation, and her guidance in helping me interpret the law, understand my options, and design a future provided a huge relief. Because of her patience and flexibility I was able to find a path forward that resulted in an ideal outcome that is still working very well today. I can’t thank her enough, she has my highest recommendation!

Bita is a professional and extremely competent lawyer. After a year of trying to work out a resolution with the other difficult lawyer, she kept on focus and never backed down. She was looking out what was best for me and fair. So glad I found her.

Bita help me with my divorce this past year. Married with no kids or property, Bita made the process very easy and affordable. She was available when needed and was easy to get in contact with. Bita explained what each stage/next steps would be and what to expect. I was very happy with the outcome of her efforts and would recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance when it comes to divorce.

Professional, Thorough, and Understanding
I have never had the need to consult or hire a lawyer. I am glad Bita Soltan-Qurraie was my first experience. She spent as much time as I needed to fully grasp my situation and the rights I was entitled to. She always made sure I understood all of the legal paperwork and legal speak while never once talking down to me. I was always informed of any changes in my case and she immediately updated me of any actions made by the other party. All contact made with the other party was made through her and handled with civility. Paperwork she sent to the other party was first sent to me so I could read, understand and approve. Any contact she made with the other party through email or letter she wrote was sent to me to get my approval on facts and intent. All my emails and calls for our correspondence were responded to promptly. Any time we met in person she considered my schedule and made every opportunity to accommodate me. Bita Soltan-Qurraie was able to help me get my case handled quickly and cleanly. She also helped me acquire everything I requested financially from the other party in my case which was handled out of court.

Man in Washington State
Bita helped me navigate through the most difficult time of my life. I was uneducated on divorce and Bita, from the start, was very factual how men in our "no fault state" are treated. I brought in 2/3 of the household income and braced myself how a large chunk of my income would go to my at fault partner. Bita is supportive. At times when I am vulnerable, Bita is who provides insight and props me up with a backbone. By nature, I am passive. When my divorcing partner's lawyer(s) attack, Bita always reply's with the upper hand and diffuses every situation to my advantage. I am a man in Washington state who has primary custody of my children, I am not required pay spousal support, and all future expenses for the children are split 50/50. I believe I was in an unfair situation and Bita made it fair. I'm truly thankful. Thank you Bita

I hired Bita as my attorney to help me deal with a couple of highly stressful situations. She was professional, very competent, and genuinely concerned about my case. She was very approachable, easy to work with, and very compassionate to the stress I was under. She also has a wry sense of humor which made her very pleasant to work with. In both cases we were highly successful and I can't recommend her highly enough.
