Fast Response, Friendly, Professional, Knowledgeable Divorce Attorney
Justin handled my divorce quickly and professionally. I was overwhelmed with all of the unique challenges I felt we had, but Justin handled everything expertly and gave me very helpful advice throughout the process. He was friendly, approachable, and very responsive to all of my questions. I do not feel this divorce could have been made any easier.

Family Law Case Completed by Justin Aanenson
Our family heard Justin's ad for legal assistance on the radio while listening to the Mariner's game. Justin returned our call immediately. He met with us where we were; in the middle of a legal mess that needed completion. Justin worked with our current situation, our budget, and hectic schedules. He was relentless in his process, gave us sound legal advice, and took care of all the details. Justin's willingness to work with our current situation, knowledge of the law, and his experience with similar cases were a benefit. He worked to complete our case and gave us closure. Justin is exceptional, kind, and professional. Our family would highly recommend Justin to anyone who needs legal help with Family Law issues.
