My attorney SaraEllen, has given me the opportunity to have a fresh start in building a career for myself. SaraEllen has helped me get through a very emotional and terrifying experience with debt collection at the age of 20. She has been motivated and strong willed through out my whole case and also helping me dispute other problems that I wasn't even sure was possible without having to just bite the bullet and take it as it came at me. She was very knowledgable and taught me how to stand up for myself in situations that I knew nothing about. SaraEllen is a person who I would definitely recommend to anyone who is in need of help with any circumstances similar to mine.
Thank you so much, SaraEllen you are the absolute BEST!

SaraEllen is a master of her trade.
She navigates the legal system with a forceful finesse and communicates with clients clearly, consistently, and calmly.
I was dealing with a company who was trying to collect a false debt.
I did everything in my power to resolve it myself, but I was stuck in an automated system.
I was worried my credit would be ruined and was referred to SaraEllen by a close friend to resolve the matter.
From the first meeting I knew I was in the best possible hands available, she was sharp, professional, and respectful.
We built a thorough case in two short weeks and had my debt removed and a settlement within a month!
My experience with SaraEllen was amazing, there's no better debt lawyer in Seattle!

SaraEllen represented all qualities I would expect from a trustworthy lawyer. I have not had any prior experience with attorneys in the past, however, Sara kept me well informed, looked at my case from all angles and handled all events in a respectful and professional manner.
I would reccommend her services to anyone who is faced with debt collection concerns.
I was uncertain of a lot of events and Sara continued to ask questions and became very knowledgable about my situation. She was always able to explain terms and conditions in a laymen's terms if I did not understand. She made all her actions clear to me and laid out all options and let me decide what I wanted to do while giving me her professional opinion.
I am very satisfied at the outcome of my case, even when things seemed to not go our way she was adament in approaching it from all angles and did not fail to deliver a positive outcome.
