Celeste helped me with a mediation. She did a great job. The best part about working with Celeste was how comfortable I felt. I have worked with other attorneys on a relocation case, with them I felt like they cared about my money. With Celeste, I felt like she cared about us and our situation.

Celeste worked with me to navigate a revised parenting plan and resolve child support/visitation issues. She has an income based payment scale which made it very manageable for a single mom of two. She was available to meet in person but I was able to do the vast majority of business via phone and email, which made things really easy. There were times I handed things on my own and times I needed a lot of advice and she was available to take phone calls and walk me through the process. She was very knowledge about how to handle custody issues when the other party is out of state and was very good about explaining the wording of the documents and what kind of language we needed to use in order to protect my kids best interest. If you are looking for someone to work with who understands Washington law and is a great communicator, I highly recommend her!

Celeste was recommended to me by a family friend and I couldn't be more grateful! I hired her for my divorce and child custody case and she was so quick and thorough to meet tight deadlines. I had hired a different attorney that I ended up replacing with Celeste because he was not communicating with me nor was he doing much of anything and time was running out. She made sure to explain everything in a way that I would understand and she listened and communicated with me about every detail. I am beyond happy with the outcome and the process!

Celeste is an outstanding attorney who focuses on helping clients in need. Her practice is one of the few in Seattle that offers a sliding scale and handles both family and debt issues. I have referred several clients to Celeste and I have only heard back great things.
