We honor your honesty, knowledge and great work!
We love the work Keon has done for us. Even though while he has many cases on his hands, he still spared his weekend time, studied our case, comply his previous experience he had with the evildoers defendant’s doing and provided truthful evidence in court, he strikes the slinky defendant down. His professional skills has stopped the defendant continues hurting us and maybe many other homeowners getting hurt. Your effort it’s greatly appreciated Keon!

Excellent work Keon!
Keon is excellent. He handled an eviction for me and ensured that all the details were covered and done correctly. He was quick too which saved on rental losses.

. We found keon online and because he is 80% dedicated to eviction we decided to call him. He personally answered his phone immediately which was the first thing I loved about him I didn’t have to go through secretaries and leave messages or paralegals. He has incredible response time he is swift and got the job done in three days Bam ! He’s compassionate and willing to talk, his rates are great and when I presented myself in court the judge said “you are in really good hands with Keon. Thank you so much

Compassionate and knowledgeable
Keon is a highly compassionate and knowledgeable lawyer in the field of tenant landlord law. I had some serious legal problems with a tenant, and he was very patient and understanding in answering all my complicated questions. I would heartily recommend Keon for your legal needs.

Very thankful!
Professional and knowledgable. Keon helped us with an unlawful detainer suit. We were successful. Our stress level was extremely high, Keon was very patient and calm with me at all times. Keon was always responsive, even late in the evening and weekends when I would never expect that. I am impressed and thankful beyond words. His fees are Very reasonable, and he always lets you know the cost. I definitely recommend Keon, without any hesitation! Thank you Keon.

Proffessional, Responsible, Nice......
I have bought the foreclosed house from the bank with the occupants. They were very dishonest and tough people. If you would ask me to rate this case from 1-10, like 1 is the easy and 10 the toughest, I would say 20, Really it was that kind of case, but Mr. Knutson, didn't give up, he was there from the beginning to the end, he was really doing his best and beyond and above his practice. Since I had no experience in this before, and this case was really difficult, I was bothering Mr. Knutson so much, but he was very patient, nice and professional. If I would have another case for the lawyer, Mr. Knutson would be the first one on my call list again ( not sure if he would be happy about it) . And of course I would recommend him to all my friends and relatives. Thank you Mr. Knutson for everything you have done. Keep up your good work.

Knowledgeable and Respectable Attorney
My issue appears to be resolved without any legal need, however I'd recommend him based on his availability, knowledge and trustworthiness. I received a 20 day notice to quit on a lease that just ended. We paid our bills on time, yet the landlord decided to kick us out for his own reasons. Attorney Knutson made himself available to talk on a Sunday and gave my issue full attention. I found him ethical as well. He spent the appropriate time for discovery, then made recommendations that would minimize my expense and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome, despite it minimizing his ability to bill!

Words can't describe
I was between a rock and a hard place with my landlord. After getting harrassed by her all day about letting her contractor in at 8:30am instead of 9:30am, I received a voice message from the landlord threatening to sue. I called Keon at 8:30pm on a Saturday! I was expecting to leave a voice mail and wait for him to get back with me, but instead he answered his phone, and answered ALL of my questions, and put me at ease. He was honest, even told me I could have free representation if the landlord tried to evict me--Considering attorneys make a living representing people, he had no reason to inform me about free representation--but, I believe this shows his trustworthiness, and willingness to help and that says volumes about someone's character.

Landlord or tenant Attorney | Apr 07
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mr. Knutson is probably the best deal you can find in Western Washington when it comes to landlord-tenant matters. Mr. Knutson is not only extremely knowledgeable in this area of law, but he is guides his clients to the best resolutions possible by giving practicable, usable advice. Mr. Knutson provides the same high quality advice and representation often seen in attorneys who have practiced for decades, but without the hefty price tag that comes with that experience. If you want a high quality, skilled attorney who will guide you to a successful resolution without having to break the bank, Keon Knutson is your attorney. Having both worked with and against Keon I highly recommend his services."
