Very capable courtroom attorney.
Philip and Maureen saved me from financial ruin. I had a wealthy ex try to destroy me with frivolous law suits. Philip superbly defended me in court in front of several judges and we achieved our goals in the courtrooms without complication. They were always quick to respond and friendly. I owe my sanity to this man and his partner Maureen.

Excellent Family Law Attorney
Mr Haas represented me in what was supposed to be a quick and easy uncontested divorce that turned into a year long custody battle. Throughout the process, Mr Haas was patient and understanding. The whole family law ordeal can be emotional at times, but ultimately, through no small part due to Mr Haas's superior talent, he was able to secure a result that was far beyond what I'd hoped for. And yes, for what it's worth, expect to communicate through email most of the time.

Copyright Infringement Case
I wrote this review on Yelp - copying here. September of 2017, I was involved in a copyright infringement case. Being in my early 20s, I had never worked with an attorney. I had no credible resources and to be honest, my biggest concern that an attorney will take the case just for money and I will be left with debt and lose the case. The Haas law proved me wrong. First, I learned about the law firm through a referral from the King County Bar Association - because I did not know any lawyers and was afraid of the 'copyright troll lawyers' that are everywhere on the internet. Phillip and Maureen (I believe they are married) were attentive, great with communications, sent me an invoice every week, and provided updates on a regular basis, and produced amazing results for me. I was not only happy with the results but more importantly how they handled my case during the process. They made me feel comfortable and took a huge burden off my shoulders. I also received back the remaining amount from the deposit I had made. I usually do not write reviews, but seeing a very negative review for this firm actually motivated me to share my experience on here. I.. definitely do not think they are 'con artists.' Based on my experience, I will be going for them next time I am involved in a court case.

Awesome
Thank you Maureen for always responding to my emails and keeping me in the loop with my divorce . I kept pushing it back for years because i didn’t want to deal with the paperwork/court and i didn’t haven’t to because they did EVERYTHING for me. Thank you both for everything.

Family Law / Uncontested Divorce
No one wants to have to find and hire a lawyer, but sometimes there's just no getting past it. I could have filed pro se, but who has time to figure out the Byzantine King County court system and required forms? Hiring Haas Law was very affordable and they made the process uncomplicated. Everything via fax or phone, include their payment and court costs. They did what they said, when they said they'd do it, for what they agreed to charge. No surprises. What more can you ask for?

Great family lawyer
Philip represented me in a child support modification and post secondary request. He was very professional and knowledgeable with the process and I got very favorable results. I recommend his services and will use them next time that I need a lawyer!

Best Client Experience
I have to admit I was a little nervous about hiring an attorney I Found online. All of my contact was all either online or via telephone conversation. They were responsive and thorough. They delivered exactly what they committed to and in a timely manner. I never felt stressed dealing with the firm. If you need a divorce attorney contact Philip Haas. The prices are fair and service is impeccable. I highly recommend their services.

Beyond excited
After having my last 2 lawyers disappoint me to no end inside and outside of the court room, then quit my case for their own personal reasons and finding out that no work had been done in preparation for the Parenting plan modification with only 30 days to the court date. I called Haas Law Office and spoke with Mauree, she was very concerned for me and our situation with my son, she asked all the right questions listened to my story and helped me understand what could possibly be done in our situation and then set up an appointment to meet with Philip for the same day! We met with Philip at a Starbucks on my way home from work, in desperate need of help. Philip amazed both of us!! He listened to everything we both had to say (and it was a lot) he looked over ever document we gave him and he asked the questions that kept us on track. After our meeting we offered to help carry the two huge boxes of court papers, I brought with me, out to his car. Philip replied “No thank you, I am going to get started right now” OMG!! We are so happy and thankful to have this team working with us, so happy we cried tears of joy and relief on the way home :O)

Wow fast, polite and ontime. Nice to work with this type of service.
I have many years of experience in hiring attorneys. Most have a slower pace than I like. This team treats you like a real customer. I was in a real hurry for several legal documents. Both Philip and his wife Maureen were so helpful and professional. Philip even helped me with an additional document I did not know I needed and it was all done quickly and I had a couple of last minute changes. I will be using this team in the future and I will recommend them to others. Special note: My experience with other attorneys takes days to get replies to emials. Not this team they are very responsive. Every email was replied to that same day. Feel free to use email to communicate with them in fact I have never met them. My entire experience was through email and phone I LOVED THIS. Thank you Maureen and Phillip.

Highly recommended!
I am an attorney in Melbourne, Florida, and Mr. Haas and his wife Maureen provided me with valuable legal assistance with some commercial litigation cases I was handling. They were both very responsive and professional, and they provided high quality legal work. I highly recommend Mr. Haas.
Posted by Liliana | August 13, 2013
I would highly recommend his legal services.
I am very pleased with the outcome in my case; Ms. Haas was very attentive, diligent and professional. She kept me informed through the process by phone calls or e-mails. The price was reasonable and yes I would be happy to refer family or friends to their office. Thanks and wish you lots of success.

No verbal communication
He was hired to work on a long case. He made blank statements of amount of money I should receive and it wasn’t even close to what I got. He wouldn’t answer all the questions on the emails and would have to ask again. He avoid questions. Also got charged again for email conversions. Never have we ever talked over the phone. Shifty sales approach working with him. I don’t recommend.

Bad experience!
Lots of great reviews but honestly i think they were there just for the money or just hugely NOT competent at all. I had an issues with an insurance claim, them denying my claim even though they couldn’t prove they weren’t liable. I was very clear from the start that my moving company made the insurance with the insurance company and that I did not have any documentation regarding the Pick-Up but only regarding my Drop-Off. 1. Phone consultation with Maureen, of course she can’t predict the outcome but the consultation was quite specific as to know if there was a strong case, which she said there was, she also said the proof of being liable or not, was on the insurance company side that’s why they have investigators. 2. Philip Haas calls, I find out that Maureen is not my lawyer but he will be, never spoke to him before and with a non-disclosed speech impediment that makes communication hugely hard (first bad sign, she should have contacted me telling me and asking if that was ok before taking a non refundable deposit). 3. You would think that if you change your clients lawyer without consulting with the client you’d provide every bit of information that very client provided you; NO, not the case, Philip Haas started doing his own without even consulting first and knowing half of the case; I got mad and made him aware of it and he apologized saying Maureen didn’t send him the info (hugely unprofessional and once again a very bad sign); because I did send details by email there were no way you could dispute it so he wrote off what he charged me so far with whatever he did without consulting me first and then made out a strategy plan with me starting from zero (that was well appreciated but not encouraging). 4. If you know the case and set up a strategy but then a month later forget about details regarding that case...VERY BAD SIGN. Philip Haas blamed it on the fact they just had a new born and thanked me for reminding him the details of my case and because of that now he would re-contact the insurance company (he should have done that immediately as soon as he got another “claim denied”). 5. Out of the blue turns out that the burden of proof that the insurance company is liable or not, is on me and not on the insurance company so even though the insurance company can’t prove they aren’t liable, I have to prove they are by providing documents of the truck and driver that did my pick-up... SURPRISE! So my lawyer knowing from the start I did not have any documents alike as I specified from the beginning with Maureen, at the very end let’s me know I have the burden of proof which, not having documents is clear that there is no case at all then, that’s just common sense right? ... can you prove in a very specific way who the driver and truck type is? NO, you don’t have a case, so why on earth would you take a case knowing there is no case? Because you mislead and was there for the money OR just were hugely incompetent not knowing what you were doing. Philip Haas insists they didn’t mislead, which can be true but that just means they were hugely incompetent then, which one is it? A. The insurance company have to prove they are not liable and if they can’t the burden for compensation is on them at least partially. (Maureen) -“ knowing I didn’t have documentation to prove specifics regarding the pick-up driver and truck type. Or B. You have to prove the insurance company is liable (even though you were insured) in order for them to compensate you by providing documents of who the driver and truck type was (Philip) Both are contradicting each other and therefore misleading or simply pure incompetence in the matter. Federal court? That was an option it would just have been hugely costly and time consuming and no guarantee of anythings pf course. Bad experience and a huge waste of money!
