I had the great privilege of having Alan's counsel in a complicated and unhappy business partnership situation. He acquainted himself with the facts very quickly, and was able to negotiate a solution with the opposing party in a most impressive manner. I was very nervous that there could be a good outcome for me, but Alan pulled it off. He has very clear, concise, and effective communication skills: with both myself and the opposing party. If I ever have the need for an attorney in the future, I would not hesitate to hire Alan. Very grateful to him.

A trusted friend recommended Alan Funk after my wife filed for divorce. Alan's counsel was invaluable during a difficult time. He kept me on track and on schedule. I will always be grateful for his help and would return to him for any other family or personal legal counsel in the future.

I called a few different law firms no one would take my case. I drove to a law firm were I was suppose to have a consultation whit & attorney he refuse to see me because I had my youngest daughter 3 at the time. He's only words to me were there are 2 firms in Seattle that might be able to help you. 1 was Wechsler Becker,LLP the second one didn’t even call me back. I spoke to a lady at Wechsler Becker, She dint know if MR. funk would call me back but to give her a few case Numbers and other information that she would forward to MR. Funk. As I spoke to her I realized that these people were very professional from the start. A few hours went by then I received the call that changed my life. It was MR. Funk we talked a little he set up a consultation with me. The rest is history for me. He was not only my Attorney that would carry me the long way but a friend and staff that treated me and my youngest daughter like family. He's staff accommodated her from day 1 so I could have my consultation with MR. Funk. The process took almost a year very rocky from court to court. At one point I told MR. Funk that I could not afford his services I was very sad, confused, frustrated etc. As I have 4 children to take care his words to me were that he would work with me. Set up a payment plan he carried my balance until the end. After My ex wife a & I settle he's word to me were not to worry about the BALANCE that it was his CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MY KID’S & I.
I have admired MR. Funk all the way to the end. Were ever we went in the court house he was well recognized an respected among his pears & court staff Ill never for get the look on one commissioner that I went to see with him at the first hearing that determined the custody of my children with me. It was not a good look but he knew who MR. Funk was all about, FACTS after seen his work thought E-Files he had provided the commissioner. He hear the other sides argument. But when it was all said an done. He went whit MR. Funks work an granted custody of the children to me the father.
In my life I have come across quite a few people Rich & famous but never before a man like Alan. There are very few people like him in this world. His a business men an at the same time he is family. I have learned from him. What real mean & woman are all about from the experience I had with his staff an him. When he was unable to be with me at a hearing he would have one of his colleagues be there with me on last minute notice. Divorce can be a pain full, rest less & confusing process.
I will never forget Alan not only for what he has done for me and my family. But in talking to him one on one he is a family man. I had some vision on how my life was changing wile being with him watching the sunset on the horizon over looking Puget sound at my settlement conference when it all came to the END.
I will never for get you all at the firm. Best Wishes J.R.P.R.
