Ms. Lillevik led the legal effort in "one of the most complex Parental Alienation/Child Custody/Modification cases" all involved experts had ever seen in King County. A landmark decision. This case had all the key elements of the most severe parental alienation cases. 5 CPS investigations, criminal charges, child abuse and chemical dependency allegations, to name just a few. These unlimited allegations, by the "mother" spanned the course of almost 6 years. Linda aggressively defended the accused father methodically, calmly and with the "end goal" always in mind. She never lowered her ethical standards, even when the opposing counsel repeatedly did throughout the entire case. Judge Ronald Kessler made multiple findings against the "mother" including the landmark decision of the severe parental alienation and abusive use of conflict. Custody was retained by the father, in the modification ("mother" wanted next to complete removal from the child's life) attempt by the alienating "mother." All charges dismissed, CPS investigations "unfounded."

Six years ago today, was the worst day of our family's life. We received a devastating phone call that sent us into sheer panic. We were confused and overwrought with emotion. Thank God we found Linda Lillevik. Linda is extremely well-versed in her field. She represented our family diligently. She put effort into our case knowing the outcome would be life changing. She was always straight forward and honest. She listened, fought with integrity and won our case. Without her representation, we firmly believe the outcome would have been much different. Because of her, we have been able to live these last six years of our lives as a happy family. Ms. Lillevik has more than earned the highest possible recommendation from us as well as our gratitude.

Ms. Lillevik wrote and filed an amici curiae brief for a non-profit public organization that I serve as a volunteer. As a lawyer and psychologist, I am quite cognizant of high quality legal work. Ms. Lillevik is among the top one percent of the lawyers with whom I have work with throughout my more than 30 years of practice. Her knowledge, editorial skills, and organizational abilities are exceptional. I give her my strongest recommendation.

If it were not for Linda, we would not have our beautiful daughter with us today. Linda & her staff answered all of our questions, with patience. She is compassionate, very proactive and well versed in Family Law. Love her to death.

Linda Lillevik and her associate, Mindy Carr, defended me in a domestic violence dispute which involved a teenage member of my family.
Linda explained the prosecutor's case against me in a clear, down to earth manner and gave me realistic expectations. Being in the criminal justice system for the first time, my wife and I appreciated her frank and patient explanations of the legal process. Her years of experience and calm demeanor we found reassuring.
I found Linda very proactive in my defense suggesting things that I could do ahead of the Court's or prosector's requirements. I believe these recommendations, which I acted on, aided in bringing a resolution to my case the outcome of which my wife and I were satisfied with.

Ms. Lillevik is well versed in family law, juvenile dependencies, and adoption. As an adoptee, I have known Ms. Lillevik to be a patient, effective, and overall invaluable advocate for family members dealing with custodial disputes or other legitimate concerns necessitating representation. Articulate and hard-working, I would again retain Ms. Lillevik or recommend her to anyone needing a fantastic family law attorney.

I hired Linda to gain custody of my infant son. I was angry and busy blasting his mother. Linda interupted me and reminded me that this is not about the grown ups; this is about my son's need for his mother and father. I changed my attitude which resulted in a quick resolution. Today I share custody with my son's mother and we get along. I have referred Linda to friends and family.
