Ms. Weiss followed up on my message promptly and offered a free phone consultation. Her information for me was clear, concise and helpful. I was able to determine quickly whether I had a valid case or not.

I could not have asked for a better attorney.
With her wisdom and a deep knowledge of labor laws, Reba was able to guide me to the best resolution.
Reba only looked out for my best interest. She is the absolute best!

If you find yourself in a state of a deep disappointment wondering if those lawyers you see in movies ever actually appear in the real world, have no doubt - they do. And as I now know, in the real world they are much better. I had some experience with other members of the legal profession before I found Reba, and let me just say that there is Reba, and then there is everyone else.
My story stared when a Fortune 500 company fired me after a messy re-org and a change of management. I was let go for alleged poor performance after 14 years of work with a termination letter consisting of only two sentences. I didn’t understand it back then, but in fact my poor perforce was a pretext for discrimination on the national origin grounds. You don’t know me and I don’t know you, yet I think we both can agree that one doesn’t get promoted receiving glowing performance reviews praising his off the charts achievements and then all of a sudden gets fired as a poor performer. That what’s eventually made me thinking about telling my story to someone and seeking legal help, and now I am very glad that I did.
After trying a few other lawyers with no luck and listening to all sorts of explanations about how my case was too complicated and uncertain, how too much time have passed since the events, and how I should just forget the whole thing and move on, I came across Reba’s email address. To my surprise Reba replied promptly herself (no going through multiple secretaries and making a few attempts to get through) and suggested to meet and talk. Very quickly in our first conversation Reba determined that I had a case, and explained what I could expect and how we would approach it. Fast forward several months, and Reba got my case settled without filing a law suit and arranged a deal for me I could not even imagine when I first contacted her.
Every step of the way Reba was available to answer my questions and made all things transparent and clear. She cared, was very involved, supportive and always very easy and pleasant to talk to. Reba is sharp and efficient, cuts to the core of any information quick, asks the right questions and always remembers every relevant detail. She has an extensive experience and is always full of ideas. Each time there was a setback, she knew exactly what the options were and what would work best. In addition, if there is a need to seek external help (my case went in to a mediation), Reba knows more amazing people, who are also very good at what they do, and you can be sure you’d get the best possible result and a top class no-nonsense guidance and help all along.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have known Reba for many years and she is an outstanding Attorney. In particular, she is an esteemed member of the employment bar, and a co-author of the Employment Law Desk Book for Washington State. Reba is the top of my list for employment law referrals because she is not only one of the most qualified Attorneys in Seattle in this area of law but she is also passionate about her clients and their cases.
