I have worked with Blake in both settlement and post-settlement cases. My initial settlement was over a year of high conflict and Blake was able to wade through the drama and get our case successfully mediated. A post settlement case that was another year long high conflict fueled with many false allegations, Blake was able to successfully settle between the attorney's. I absolutely would hire Blake again if the need came. He was always familiar with my case and the details, I always felt like he 'had my back' and his knowledge and confidence provided me ease through these difficult times.

I hired J. Blake Hilty under difficult circumstances for myself. I had lost visitation with my children, my saving were removed from joint accounts, demands I divide my business interests, and requests that I forfeit my interest in the family home. During the year long divorce process Mr. Hilty worked to restore my rights. I now share custody of my children. My business interests are my sole and separate property. The family home was agreed be divided with equal equity to both parties. The results of my divorce ended better than I could have hoped for. For the commitment, dedication, and personal attention Blake Hilty showed me this is what I can state without reservation: for command of the legal system, understanding of complex business issues, constant efforts to better position a client, positive efforts with the other side, superior negotiating skills, and working with arbitrators. This man’s efforts on my behalf truly: “EXCEPTIONAL”.

I am incredibly thankful that Blake Hilty was my family law attorney for my case. He took the time to get to know me and formulated a plan to help me and my children. He provided sound guidance that helped calm my fears every step of the way. He treats you with compassion and understands the strain that divorce and custody cases has on you. I found that he and his staff at Socius Law Group were always responsive. Blake has a straightforward way of explaining complicated topics that helps you make huge decisions. He can tell if there was something he said that you might not have comprehended fully and won’t proceed until you understand. Blake will give you the range of outcomes before going to court and give you his expectation to help you mentally prepare for the result. I found that Blake was incredibly prepared, made excellent arguments and knew every detail of the case during court hearings. Blake selected the perfect mediator for my case whose style allowed us to come to an agreement that was beneficial to all involved thus avoiding the expensive costs of a trial. I would recommend to anyone looking for a family law attorney to get in touch with Blake Hilty.

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.

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!
