WE HELP CLIENTS IN STARTING NEW BUSINESSES, ADVISING STARTUPS, ASSISTING WITH FAMILY LAW MATTERS, AND BUYING & SELLING REAL ESTATE.
            I founded VJ Law Firm in Fall 2010 with a simple vision: Provide fast, affordable legal services to individuals, families and small-businesses in the Seattle Eastside. Over the past five years, I have been fortunate to have assisted hundreds of clients in bankruptcy, business formation, estate planning and real estate.
             I am the founding member of Washington State Bar Assoication's Low Bono section and offer probono services to local non-profits through Wayfind, and serve the needs of low-income clients by vounteering at various Eastside neighborhood clinics. I also assisted homeowners in protecting their homes by volunteering at the Northwest Justice Project's Home Foreclosure Legal Aid program.  I earned my J.D. from Seattle University School of Law and have a certificate in paralegal studies from University of Washington. I am admitted into Washington state and Federal district courts, and currently on the Executive Committee of the Washington State Bar Association solo and small practice section. I have also served as Chair of the Business Law and Solo/Small Firm sections of the King County Bar Association and as board director in South Asian Bar Association of Washington. I am also an active member of diversity groups such as Washington Women Lawyers, Mother Attorneys of Seattle, Washington Young Lawyers and South Asian Bar Association of Washington. I also serve as ambassador to the Sammamish and Issaquah Chambers of Commerce. I was born and raised in New Delhi, India and fluent in Hindi and Tamil. I live in Sammamish with my husband and two kids and outside of work, enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and hiking.
           Please contact me today for a free 30 minute initial consultation to learn how our firm can meet your needs. We have offices in three convenient locations - Redmond, Sammamish and Issaquah. I look forward to working with you.

Compassionate and Extremely Helpful
Shashi is, for lack of a better word- AWESOME!! We approached her to help us with an issue we are facing, and from day 1, she has been extremely helpful. The best thing about her is that she does not beat around the bush, and is direct and frank, which we really appreciate. Above all, she is compassionate, and understands where we are coming from, and that just sets her apart from the rest. Her consultation is complimentary, which is great. But she has gone above and beyond in helping us figure out the best way to tackle the situation we are in. We realize that her time is valuable, and we asked if she’d prefer a paid arrangement, but she was very kind and assured us that once her involvement is absolutely necessary, then we can talk about that. Truly truly grateful to her! 5/5 stars for Shashi. She is the best!

Rockstar in Real estate cases, highly recommended
I came across Shashi through Avvo and at a time when I had spent on two other Attorneys who did not seem very positive on the case. First thing that she did was to instill confidence that we should not lose hope. It was a way big deal for us given the two Attorneys had sounded so far. And then she went extra mile at every step to ensure she was fighting it out for us and not for her fee. She has all the traits of a good Attorney and she demonstrated it really well in steering our case from nowhere to our favor. You have been fabulous, a big thanks to you, Shashi. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!

Simply Amazing Experience
I had found out about Shashi from the Avvo reviews, and reached out to her for a real estate related help. She simply works magic by comforting her clients to know of what the worst case scenario looks like. In this process, she immediately alleviates the pain that anyone would normally have as they get into situations requiring an attorney's help. I feel that sometimes the mere imagination of the worst case scenario gets us into bad resolutions and this is exactly where a great attorney like Shashi comes to help by giving you a more realistic picture of the impact spectrum.

Guardian of Elderly Grandparent
Shashi was amazing! I live out of state and was referred to Shashi by a mutual friend in the Seattle area. I needed to retain an attorney to assist me with getting legal guardianship of my elderly grandmother who lives in a nursing home. Shashi filed all the paper work, went to court on my behalf and was able to get it filed without my presence! Thank you Shashi!

Real estate Consultancy
Shashi was god send for me on an urgent Real Estate issue involving 3rd party property management company and new tenants that hadn't yet moved. I was the landlord. I got Shahi's recommendation on a Friday evening through FB group. Shashi helped through out the process and helped me avoid going into any court process, provided consultancy and advice on how to respond to the issue. I got out of the whole mess without a scratch and got a lot of peace of mind. Shashi was very professional, courteous and to the point through out the consultation. I wouldn't hesitate to get her counsel anytime in the future.

It is with pleasure that I share my experience with Ms. Vijay. I was impressed with both the depth of her knowledge, and her willingness to generously share her time and expertise. She made sure she had "covered all the bases", and directed me on the appropriate course of action. I plan to enlist her services for my future needs. I highly recommend her.

Helpful and Responsive
Shashi quickly consulted with me about a contract. Her advice helped me see the risks clearly. I was impressed. I offered to pay for her advice but she refused my offer because it was a consultation. She is on the top of my list to hire when I need an attorney.

Highly recommend Shashi !!!
Shashi helped with my mom's medical bill after going through a emergency surgery. My mom was visiting from India and she had no insurance. The hospital bill was way higher than what she could afford. We consulted Shashi for her inputs on how to take it forward. Few phone calls and email conversations - Shashi guided on how to take it forward and went beyond to draft the email for us. Good news - Mom's medical bill was cut down by 98% by the hospital. This wouldn't be possible without the right usage of words in the email Thanks a million, Shashi. Highly recommend her services..

Pre-nup review
I hired Shashi as a lawyer to review a prenuptial agreement. She was very helpful-she responded to my questions quickly and was always willing to take the time to explain things. She also helped facilitate interactions with the lawyer writing the prenuptial agreement, who was not always as quick to respond. I would definitely recommend Shashi to others.

Trustworthy, Time Sensitive, Exceptional Legal Advice
I called Shashi’s office in desperation for complex issue that was time sensitive in which needed to be resolved in a matter of a few days. After noting this, I was so pleased that I was speaking to her almost immediately after I was told by the legal referral service CLC that I may have to wait up to 2 days. Shashi walked me through a detailed, step by step process to ensure that I had all of my checks in row in case we needed to go to litigation. She went over and beyond to answer all of my questions while thoughtfully listening and providing excellent legal advice. Safe to say, her advice helped me sleep at night and we avoided having to go to court.

Thorough, knowledgeable and great to work with
I didn’t need an attorney.. until I needed one. Ms. Vijay was recommended by a friend who’s an attorney in a different area and that recommendation proved extremely worthy. Ms. Vijay promptly called me, discussed the case on the phone, outlined possible outcomes and the line of action. Her advice made me very comfortable in a difficult situation. Through Shashi’s work we quickly reached the settlement with everyone involved and left the issue behind. I highly recommend Ms. Vijay for her expertise, attention and results she delivered!

Honest & Prompt
I requested Shashi to review my dispute with my HOA. She was prompt in reviewing the documents and responding with her recommendation. She was very honest and upfront about the situation, which helped me resolve the issue amicably. I wish the laws were more homeowner friendly, but in the meantime it is great to have attorneys like Shashi Vijay.
