When our son needed legal representation to file for divorce, we helped him search for an attorney located where he was stationed in the military. As we live out of state and we were going to help him with the attorney fees, we were leery of his using an attorney unfamiliar to either of us. We scoured AVVO online to find a highly-rated Family Law attorney in WA State. Charlie Shane was the attorney that appeared to us to be highly competent. We recommended Charlie Shane to our son, based on his very high AVVO rating and many reviews. He and his staff, especially Ruby and Megan, were exceedingly helpful, thorough, professional, diligent and tenacious.
Charlie Shane performed exceptional work for our son! He genuinely seemed to care about our son and his case. He and his well-qualified associates made certain that all aspects of our son's legal matter was handled appropriately and that all of his divorce was completely resolved in his favor. Charlie was adept at maneuvering through the legal system in WA State Court of Law, as well as in dealing with the routine documents to properly conclude our son's divorce. We highly recommend Charlie Shane and his law firm to anyone in need of quality legal representation in WA State!

Mr. Shane was very helpful in my child custody case. He informed me of various courses of action and filed all of the appropriate paperwork with the courts. His office was very easy to communicate with and kept me aware of important dates and information that the courts required. He personally represented me at trial and the judge was very satisfied with his paperwork and presentation of the case. Thanks to Mr. Shane I was able to get full custody of my son and ensure that he is in a safe environment. The case took a significant amount of time and effort, including filing temporary orders, calculating child support, sending discovery, and presenting proposed final orders. I was very pleased with Mr. Shane personally, he was easy to communicate with and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He charged a very reasonable rate for the quality of service he provided. If I am in need of family law services in the future I will certainly use Charlie again.

I contacted Charlie to get advice on gaining custody of my 15 year old daughter. Charlie listened to my situation and proposed several alternatives before we decided on a strategy. Charlie sent me the appropriate forms and had my ex-wife served. My case was strong, but we decided to go through mediation for resolution. Charlie represented me during mediation and we reached a agreement in about two hours. The final orders were filed this week and I now am the custodial parent for my daughter. My daughter's life (and mine) will be much fuller in my household and Charlie is a big reason. His strategy worked and I am very thankful.

I am extremely pleased with the services provided by Charlie Shane in handling my case. Having never been involved in any litigation before, I understandably was nervous about the outcome. However, Charlie kept me informed throughout the lengthy period leading up to the trial, which was resolved with the charges against me being dismissed. His presentation at trial was articulate, comprehensive, and firmly argued. My continued employment in my profession hinged on the outcome of this case and Charlie’s defense carried the day. Thus Charlie has my enthusiastic endorsement as an attorney that will serve you well.

Charlie was wonderful from the start. He was extremely nice, accommodating and gave us something we hadn't been able to get otherwise, assurance that we weren't alone and a sense of security. Charlie and his associate Ruby were very good about keeping in touch to assure us we werent forgotten or neglected. Also helped coach is through the whole process: what to do, what to expect and most of all what to tolerate from the other party. I highly recommend Charlie Shane to anyone that needs help getting resolution to a family conflict. Thank you Charlie for helping me get some much needed piece of mind!!

Charlie Shane was able to assist me with my divorce process smoothly and efficiently, always keeping me in the loop with consistent phone calls and updates regarding my case. I would recommend him to any friend! Exhibited the utmost professionalism and made my divorce process go smooth and painless. So far I have used him twice and if I ever need an attorney again, he will be the first to call. Outstanding attorney and terrific and understanding human being!

Looking for any legal guidance and/or representation has always made me feel as though I was being judged; sized up based on my case. Will they make enough from me to made it worth their wild to deal with MY troubles? I talked to may lawyers and did not feel like they wanted to help unless they did it their way, got paid upfront ( thousands, NOW ), and none of my financial, emotional, nor physical well being mattered to them. Not their problem unless I can afford it to be.
Then I got to Charlie Shane on my list, I experienced a different kind of lawyer right off the bat... a real person who cared.
Charlie has been extremely understanding of how overwhelmed I got while trying to figure out my legal papers and what I needed to be doing with them. He gave me great encouragement and broke it all down for me to understand what to do and why. Being able to talk to a lawyer that has my financial situation in mind is more than just rare, Charlie works hard on keeping the cost as affordable as possible while taking the time necessary to make sure everything is done the best way possible, and that I felt comfortable and prepared for my next step.
If you are looking for a lawyer that is welcoming, friendly, has your best interest in mind and is not just trying to get through another case, I strongly recommend contacting Mr. Shane.... but you'll end up calling him Charlie soon too.
Thanks Charlie for helping me though this hard time in my life!

He made me feel very sure that he would be a very capable and effective attorney.

It all started when my daughter called me last day before her summer began. She did not get her summer reading book because my ex-wife told school that my daughter would relocate to China in the next school year. All I knew was that my ex told me that she agreed my daughter should stay in Bellevue when she worked in China. It turned out that my ex secretly filed notice of relocation without my knowledge 4 months ago! Under the risk of default relocation, I hired Charlie immediately to stop it. Charlie was very responsive. He quickly put together a plan and set up a trial. The relocation attempt by my ex was stopped. In the mean time, my ex started to change her position back and forth between relocating and status quo. That made it difficult to change parenting plan. Charlie kept things on track with pressure of the scheduled trial. He suggested me to get declarations from people who are aware of our situation. One thing that he impressed me the most is that Charlie pays attention to all details. He helped me to prepare for the declarations. All facts were captured accurately and then presented in very a powerful and convincing way. In the end, my ex came to realization that she would not get her way and last minute deal was reached. I got what I wanted. My daughter stays in US and I become primary parent!!! I definitely recommend Charlie's team. I will hire him again in future if any issues come up.
