I hired Blake for my divorce and I'm glad I did. He was professional and cared about the issues I was facing in this tough process. He worked hard to do his best fighting for the topics I felt were important to me and I appreciate that. He was great to work with.

Blake Hilty is a highly competent and knowledgeable family law attorney in the PNW. His grace, patience, and ability to foresee situations by using his high level of understanding of the law, make him a fine choice for legal representation in any divorce or family law dispute. Responsive, empathetic and trustworthy, you will be in the best hands working with Blake Hilty. I would recommend him again and again in any family law scenario. Mr. Hilty knew that my list of goals were to finish in a timely manner (under 6 months), and to receive the best possible settlement. I appreciated his thoughtfulness in planning out scenarios that would help me down the road financially instead of just working with the facts. His creativity and willingness to create a formula that would benefit me and my children in the future was very much appreciated and in the end, he provided me with the best solution and settlement. He's a terrific attorney, a compassionate friend and provides a shoulder if necessary - three traits a good family lawyer must have when dealing with a highly emotional situation. He is top notch in every way.

Blake Hilty represented me in a Family Law matter and I had a favorable outcome. Blake is sharp, energetic, competent and devoted as a family law lawyer. He was also honest and straight forward, which I appreciated. Additionally, Blake's support team was great and I was equally pleased with the professionalism and diligence of the paralegals. It is my true belief that Blake will represent you well in the courtroom our outside the courtroom, and I recommend Blake Hilty without hesitation.

I am very lucky to have found Blake Hilty from McKinley Irvin. He is very professional but what impressed me the most was his ability to quickly recognize the issues and work to find constructive and practical solution to solve them. He worked very hard to get me the desired and reasonable outcome as permitted under the law without generating unnecessary legal fees. I could trust Blake for his good advice. He keeps up to date with changes in family law and studies the case in depth and most importantly uses the LEGAL LEVERAGE to build the case rather than using false accusations or raising petty issues to win a case. I would recommend him because he is honest, diligent and very sharp in his work. This is what you need to get protection or justice or win a case because Judges are very intelligent and they can decipher easily between the truth and lies. I was very happy with the outcome which was fair and reasonable and also felt that he wanted to save attorney fees for me all the time.

I was involved in a high-conflict divorce over a period of a more than year which culminated in a 4 day trial. As anyone can imagine, divorce is difficult in the best of circumstances, but when things are hostile and combative to the level of my experience, it can be soul-crushing. The time, effort and stress it takes to go to trial is overwhelming at best. I am so thankful I had Blake throughout this process. We didn't always agree, and I lost my cool a few times, but Blake was forever righting the ship and keeping me on track by focusing on the goals and appealing to my reason in lieu of emotion- not an easy thing to do when talking about your children.
He is the most detail-orientated professional I've ever met and when you have 1000 moving parts, as my divorce did, this is invaluable. There were moments in trial when I just watched him in awe. He is unassuming in his calculations, but do not be mistaken, he is calculating intelligently.
He was fair and consistent and calm under pressure. I would highly recommend Blake to anyone going through divorce.

Unfortunately, I have been involved in a 5 year divorce and Blake was my 4th Attorney. I can unequivocally say that he was the best that represented me. Trust is important and you only have to meet Blake to know that he is trustworthy as well as professional. Clients will not go wrong with Blake at your side!

I hired Blake in an advisory capacity and he was excellent. He asked a lot of good questions, wanted to understand my goals, and was completely supportive of my objectives. He always coached me on how best to diffuse any tension with my ex-wife and her attorney and genuinely seemed to want me to stay out of court. If I wind up needing additional help dealing with my ex-wife I will definitely go back to Blake. He's a high integrity professional.

Blake Hilty helped me with my divorce case. It was a long case with several complications, including inability to see my child. Blake was very responsive, returning emails very quickly and letting me know when he was in court or not available. He provided a strategy and was helpful in defining goals and sticking to them. He was responsive and in-line with my desire to not be aggressive or confrontational but to stick to the main goals of seeking a fair settlement and an equitable parenting plan, which we were able to achieve. There were times when I didn't think this would be the outcome. He was able to explain the way the law works and used examples that were easy to understand. He also would provide different scenarios. His knowledge of the case was excellent, recalling things pretty much on the spot. I highly recommend Blake Hilty and his work.

Blake helped me win a summary judgement that was brought forth in the midst of an ongoing custody dispute with my child's father. The motion for this summary judgement was unexpected, very poorly done by the opposing counsel, and I had no choice but to spend that last of my legal funds in preparing my response to the motion. Blake volunteered to work with me in finalizing my response and he represented me at the hearing pro bono. Not only did we win but I was also awarded full attorney's fees. Blake's generosity and professionalism put some humanity back into this very difficult legal process for me.
Blake was clear and concise in the court room, he was firm and clearly has a strong confidence in the court room. He showed great compassion towards me and the situation I was in and I really appreciated that. He was fast in his communication and responses to me and I was always kept informed of what the next steps were. I am so grateful and satisfied with my experience with Blake and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an effective and compassionate lawyer.
