Hard working and ethical attorney
Sara helped me in my divorce case which was tricky due to my husbands health condition. Sara was a good attorney who was compassionate and caring to me while trying to be tough and professional with his extremely difficult attorney! I appreciated her and all of her hard work!

Recommended for pre- and post-nuptial agreements
My husband and I hired Tamblyn Law to prepare a post-nuptial agreement. Since we were aligned with conditions and had prepared a draft ourselves, we figured hiring an attorney would be simple. Wrong. We spoke to over 10 attorneys throughout Greater Seattle and Tacoma who were clearly overcomplicating our case (we suspected for billing). Then we found Sara. Sara charged us a sane rate, took our feedback, communicated promptly in Email, and completed our post-nup painlessly. We are happy to have found a knowledgeable family attorney of integrity. We recommend her and would definitely use her firm again.

The outcome I wanted
I had hired Sara Tamblyn's services to respond to a a child support modification that had been filed with the courts at around the end of November. Upon receipt of petition my "20 days to respond clock" had just started and was going to move fast. Once explaining my case and getting all details straight, within no time Sara had put together my endless stack of documents in a readable format so to file with the courts. We had just done our response to the petitioner and were waiting on the petitioners next move, when things went sideways for them. The other party's attorney, within a day of our response, withdrew from the case and put the whole future process of my case now in to disarray. Sara had to now personally interact with the petitioner on all matters of my case, which made it not the easiest at all. Fast forward almost 2 1/2 months later, my case is still not going anywhere at all due to the petitioner not having an attorney, but yet Sara continued to pressed the matter trying to get it resolved so it would not have to go to court. Through Sara' perseverance and consistent pushing, she was able to force the petitioner to hire a new attorney and within weeks a case that dragged on for months, was resolved in days. Through my past experiences in dealing with legal matters I have attorney's give up and/or not provide the best services due to a host of issues that come up. Not once did Sara ever give me the inclination that she was going to not give her 100% on my case and/or that she was going to not give me an outcome that I was looking for. Sara is an attorney that will pay attention to all the little details that are extremely important and any legal maneuver that one can do to win one's case and/or have the outcome more beneficial. It was nice to have an attorney who I could trust. I would hire Sara again in a flash and would recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney.

Professional, Caring, Honorable
Choosing an attorney can be a daunting task. I'm very glad I selected Sara Tamblyn as my divorce attorney. From the first consultation with Sara I experienced a dynamic, caring, professional person with a "can do" attitude I've never seen in any other attorney. She was with me every step of the way and the end everything worked out very well. I never thought I would be writing a glowing review for an attorney but here it is and I highly recommend her.

Patience and knowledge helped navigate a difficult and drawn out divorce.
I endured a difficult divorce process that lasted more than a year. My ex-wife and her representative disregarded court protocols, and dragged out the divorce process as long as possible. Sara helped me navigate the legal process, and firmly represented me to my ex and her representative. Her perseverance paid off with finally having my ex agree to a fair settlement, just days before we were scheduled to go to court. I definitely recommend hiring Sara.

Modify Parenting Plan Difficult Respondent
I needed to modify a parenting plan while withholding visitation from a party that was demonstrating dangerous behavior with the kids so it was imperative that I acted quickly. I filled out Saras online form and she contacted me and we sat down for our consult within 24 hours she discussed multiple options for me, and you could tell that she was knowledgeable and concerned about her clients bottom line. Sara isn't here to gouge you and she brought some sanity and clarity to my case as the other party was unpredictable, non responsive etc. In the end she was able to negotiate a best case scenario conclusion to my case and was very happy with the result...I WOULD'VE PAID MORE!!! and didn't need to she is always concerned about the costs when giving you advise as to how to proceed and what is the best option for your particular situation.... thx Sara!

Honesty, Integrity and Fairness
Sara has been absolutely wonderful in handling my divorce case. My case was extremely unique as my husband had been arrested for voyeurism and I needed an attorney quickly to execute a restraining order etc... the initial attorney hired, let my restraining order elapse and I fired her. I reached out to Sara immediately and she picked up the case with a renewed sense of urgency and frankly, protectiveness. It was nice in my case that she has criminal law associates in her office. Great resources. She has supported me personally and professionally throughout this ordeal. I highly recommend this attorney.

Divorce and Parenting Plan Revision
More than 10 years ago I moved from California scared and very unsure of all of the decisions I was going to have to start making regarding my divorce, child custody and support; all of this while California had jurisdiction. Sara was not only very knowledgeable but she was thorough. She wasn't one of these lawyers who are "out for blood" or drew things out in order to milk every last dollar. She did everything with in her power to keep things as calm and amicable as possible resulting in what I felt was a streamlined and fairly inexpensive divorce and custody (compared to other divorce and custody battles I have heard about) . I was so please with the results that when it came time to re-evaluate our parenting plan 7 years later, I hired her again.

I used Sara for my divorce and she was wonderful. It's a traumatic experience and she was there by my side coaching me the whole way through.

Be warned
This attorney had no ethics or standard of practice! She treated me like I was an idiot, like I knew what to do she didn't handle my file with care and let the processor serve my now ex husband along with including another clients case with ours,, then my husband at the time called her and emailed her and she had no boundaries to handle his complaint, as it was extremely sensitive material in the adjoining case, she said just ignore it,it's the processors fault, not mine. I ordered a legal separation with financial support. My ex and her fought over the phone and she shared everything with me and there emails, and eventually she didn't perform to any level of professionalism, I found her to be weak and confrontational and my retainer was eaten up, gone, and she wanted more money!! I said no way. I am happily divorced now, with an attorney who knew how to do her job.. Thanks for wasting my time, money and emotions. Fired!

Response from Sara Tamblyn August 4, 2017
This was a very unfortunate situation with a mistake made by the process server. The client was very emotional and unstable not sure what she wanted which happens.
