Excellent Service!
Mackenzie was very professional, and kept me informed every step of the way. So easy to work with and her staff is very helpful as well. Always returned calls or correspondence promptly. She made what might have been a very unpleasant process almost a delight! I could not be happier with her or her work ethic. And she won my case! I would absolutely hire her again 100%.

On extremely short notice, I needed to find a lawyer to help me navigate my divorce.
I reached out to Mackenzie, and within a day had hired her as my lawyer. Immediately, there was a time sensitive issue that she helped me resolve by working not just during the week but over the weekend as well. She was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, affordable and always responsive to my questions and concerns. From start to finish, she did an excellent job guiding me through this stressful period. I felt lucky to have found her. Highly recommended.

Divorce Sherpa
Mackenzie is an amazing collaborative lawyer. She helped me from the beginning to the end and and beyond the process. She always maintained a level hand and steady advocacy. Divorce is an emotionally driven event to helps to have a lawyer who can both empathize while advocating and working to shorten the process. I was recommended to her by a friend and would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or in need of family law.

Mackenzie provides such an amazing service! This firm goes above and beyond the call of duty, and exceeded all of my expectations. Not only would I recommend my family and friends to work with Mackenzie, I wouldn't want any other law firm to handle my family law matters.

The best lawyer on West Coast!
I had a pleasure to work with Mackenzie on my divorce case. It was a messy one, my now ex husband wanted full custody of children, a house and cars and he was the one who cheated! However, he hired high power attorney and it seems that my life and everything I knew was hanging on a thinnest thread ever. I was talking to my friend about it, more like crying or sobbing, and she recommended to hire Mackenzie. I could have never afforded a lawyer that my ex did, but it did not matter. Mackenzie won the case; I got custody of my children, house and he got the cars. And when I paid Mackenzie for her services it did not make my account sad and empty. I always recommend Mackenzie to my friends and family and it is my pleasure to recommend her to you.

Excellent lawyer when you are in bind
I have faced a very difficult situation in my own home and if it was not for expertise and advice I have gotten from Mackenzie it could have been much worse. She was professional, courteous, understanding, and most important a great advocate for me and my case. Many times as we worked together I was desperate and desolate, but having her on my side assured me that desperation and desolation I felt will not remain in my life for long. She was always able to maintain the idea that we are going to win even when situation was horrid. And she was correct, we won this case. Actually, she won the case and I won freedom and peace forever. I would highly recommend Mackenzie and her services. Her law expertise will change the outcome of your case too!

great lady full of information
Ms. Sorich has been working on my case since 2011. She has always kept me informed if if I was unreachable she always made sure to communicate with me. While working with her she always gave me both sides of the story, along with how she planned it to go. She has always reached goals and plans she set for the case and has always reached them for me. Great attorney I strongly recommend!

review for Mackenzie Sorich
My name is Matthew, Mackenzie did a excellent job handling my situation. I was very pleased with everything. Thank you very much.

Nice and responsive
I had a YMCA employee who got in an argument with my wife file an unfounded claim to retaliate for my wife complaining. I hired Mackenzie J Sorich to make sure that Child Protective Services did not attack our family like they usually do. Makenzie made sure that Child Protective Services don’t abuse their authority. Mackenzie arranged a meeting at her office instead of the usual intrusion into your home that Child Protective worker enjoy so much. I was happy with protection that Mackenzie provide us during the horrible experience of dealing with Child Protective services. My only concern was that Mackenzie was too nice for my liking to the Child Protective workers that were accusing us of a crime. But that did not end up hurting our case and Makenzie did her job well without sounding aggressive. The case was closed as unfounded. I still wish she would help me sue YMCA for their illegal harassment.

Mackenzie can balance these seemingly contradictory characteristics because she is principled, intelligent, and experienced. She is comfortable in the courtroom, knows the law well, and is well respected by her colleagues.
