Laurie is an astute, no-nonsense lawyer who will build the best case possible based on the facts
One of the things I valued most in my interactions with Laurie is that she had no qualms about telling me if one of my proposed arguments was unconvincing or unlikely to be accepted by the judge. Its important to remember that just because you think something is important, doesn't mean the court will, and that is why we hire experienced experts like Laurie. She quickly identified which facts about my case were the most important in the eyes of the court, and which we should build our case on, which ultimately led to a victory for us.

100 percent would recommend Laurie!!!
Lauire was fantastic to work with. She helped me win primary custody of my son which I have heard is challenging for a state that usually sides with the mother. I felt that she truly fought for me and was very eloquent and even the judge was impressed with how she presented my case. Thank you Laurie for helping ensure my son is in the best situation possible.

Excellent Lawyer
Laurie was indispensable in my last case. I had a very short amount of time to catch her up and have her represent me and she killed it. Highly recommend her.

I Highly Recommend Laurie
Laurie helped me get through a tough custody battle that took an extensive amount of her time and energy. We have gone through many hearings, a mediation, and a full blown trial. I felt confident in Laurie to get the results that I needed. She also helped guide me through many situations. There were times I did not agree with her but she kept me level headed and guided me to think about the big picture instead of reacting by emotions. Laurie really impressed me in the courtroom with her knowledge of the law as well as remembering minute details of things that had gone on over the past years leading up to the trial. Hopefully you will be as fortunate as I have been to have Laurie Robertson represent you as well.

Amazing and Aggressive Attorney!!!
I am so glad I found Laurie. I had tried to speak with other attorney's prior to finding Laurie and none had given me the time of day like Laurie did. She took my call the first time I called to see if she could take on my case. My case was very complicated and involved other court cases outside of my family law case. Other attorney's didn't want to deal with my case, where Laurie didn't even hesitate. Laurie represented me extremely well and I always felt that she gave me realistic expectations and gave great sound advice. She was always very responsive to my emails and calls no matter when it was. In court she was organized, decisive, well put together, firm, and aggressive. She impressed me with her quick rebuttal responses to the other side in the court room. I had watched other attorneys from big firms in the court room look sloppy, but not Laurie. She was well put together and confident. I can't say enough good things about Laurie, but I am 100% glad I found her. I would recommend her to anyone.

Best divorce attorney ever!
I hired Laurie to help settle my divorce in a fair and respectful way. It was a long process and an emotional rollercoaster ride. The more I was glad to have her represent my side. She has all the experience, knows what is reasonable, and her advice is 100% on the mark. Early on, I told her that I would always go with her recommendations even if I thought otherwise. Looking back, now that my divorce is settled, I am super glad I always did. When you are in emotional turmoil, you will not be able to make sound decisions without the help of a trustworthy counselor. I highly recommend hiring Laurie and following her advice if you find yourself in need of a divorce attorney. Laurie is awesome! You’ll be in very good hands.

Total Peace of Mind with Laurie Robertson
Laurie Robertson is an knowledgeable, caring, strait forward attorney who is able to maneuver through all the twists and turns of my case. No matter what my ex’s lawyers threw at me, she acted diligently and confidently to protect my children and their best interests time and again. She is currently representing us once more as my ex is at it again and I’m fairly confident this will continue periodically until my last child turns 18.

Our savior
I received a letter in the mail requiring a family court appearance in Washington State, I can remember being in a full panic when I received the letter because I didn’t know what I was supposed to do. When I did a quick search for attorneys in Everett, WA I came across Laurie Robertson. I spoke with Laurie about the situation I was going through and informed her of the summons I received from the family court in Everett. This was the first step in a 2 year process that involved an extremely complicated custody case involving two states 3,000 miles apart. During this process Laurie showed extreme dedication and emotional support when it was needed. Laurie was able to calm me down several time through these past two years and to focus on the big picture. This was extremely difficult to handle at times, but with her confidence and support I was able to understand that there was more to this case then what is happening “right now”. During the process Laurie continued to get me more and more visitation with my son, it was extremely costly to bring him across the country, but the visitation became 14 days per month until we finally went to trial. After many trials, tribulations, guardian investigations, psychological evaluations, flights to and from Washington, we finally went to trial. I can’t stress enough how strongly I believe in Laurie and how well she knows the law. She has been doing this for a VERY long time, and if you could have heard how she performed in the court room you could be nothing less than amazed. In the end, my son was placed in my care and I could not be any happier with the results. Every struggle and expense throughout the process was worth it. IF you are a father that wants to be a part of your child’s life then LAURIE ROBERTSON can and will help you. I will be maintaining Laurie as my primary attorney in Washington state.

Fantastic Divorce Lawyer!
Laurie is an incredible divorce lawyer! She did an amazing job with my divorce, and it was a real dog fight the whole way. She is a true fighter. And you can tell that she really cares about her family law clients and the results that she achieves for them. My ex was a vindictive nightmare who cared more about hurting me than her own children. Laurie tireless fought on my behalf. And, when my ex refused to even be remotely reasonable at trial, we just pushed forward to trial. And, Laurie did an absolutely Amazing job at trial. I felt like we were way better prepared and fought smarter at every turn. The end result? I basically got everything that was really important and to me at trial. I am truly thrilled with the job that Laurie did and cannot say enough about her or her team. Highly recommended!!!!!

AMAZING!!! (I really shouldn't tell anyone about her)
We came to Laurie after hiring another attorney that we were very unsatisfied with. He would not answer our emails, calls or make time to communicate at all! He had rave reviews at first glance, but if you starting digging in you could see others complain about his communication issues. Be careful when looking for an attorney it is scary out there… Anyway, I don’t know where to begin! When we hired Laurie she stepped right in and within days made great strides in our case. We are so pleased with Laurie I wish we could give her more than five stars! Laurie answers all of our questions clearly, completely, and demonstrates complete knowledge of the case. She truly reads everything you bring her and absolutely understands all the intricacies that are involved. She is truly fantastic! I can’t say enough good things about Laurie. She is respectful, kind and understanding. Laurie is always prompt in her communication and thorough with her explanations. She has taken a big weight off of our shoulders. I don’t think there are many out there but we know that we finally found a great attorney. I love her she is awesome! My family loves her also because I am not so stressed out. Thank you Laurie for all you do! You do make a difference and we ARE happy and relieved when we see you!

Wonderful Attorney
Laurie has worked on my very challenging and contentious divorce and I could not have asked for a better family law attorney. She was able to handle all of the twists and turns of my case with ease. I highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking for an excellent, ethical and hard working counselor.

Best Divorce Attorney in Seattle
I have nothing but great things to say about this firm. I am going thru a divorce and also needed help with a criminal matter. My Attorney, Laurie is the nicest, most responsive professional I have ever dealt with. Laurie is very driven to achieve positive results and she actually cares about her clients , you are not just a number when it comes to Laurie or any of the attorneys at The Law offices of Jason S Newcombe. I would never hesitate to use The Law Offices of Jason S Newcombe for any legal matter. I even had an emergency one night and called and the owner of the firm, Jason Newcombe picked up the phone and helped me immediately. It does not get any better than that in my opinion. Both Laurie and her assocaites work with you, keep you well informed and work hard for you to achieve positive results. I was in a bad situation that is getting "fixed" because of the expertise and patience of both of Laurie and the firm in general. I find myself to be a demanding client and Laurie is the extremely responsive, all the time..... Even the receptionists and support staff are awesome. Best of the best in my opinion, you cant go wrong if you need legal help. I am very passionate about the excellent service I have received. Please do not hesitate to ever contact them, the best in Seattle. Laurie is a true professional , very patient and I cant say enough good things about her. If you should need a divorce attorney, you want her in your corner. She will fight for you. I cant say enough good things about her or the firm she represents.

Laurie Robertson is the person you want in your corner while going through a divorce.
I have been going through a extremely complicated divorce with very unique circumstances. Laurie and the Law office of Jason Newcombe have been my advocating voice of reason and assurity. She provides wisdom, strength, and confidence to the case. She also has been very kind and compassionate. Laurie listens to my expectations for the outcome of the case. She will use her experience and education to give me her advice on the particulates of the case, but always stands by me even if she doesn't agree with everything I ultimately choose to impliment. She prepares intensely for every court appearance and has yet to fail at any part of this process. Laurie and her office complete all required paperwork for each court appearance and she provides accurent material. She is confident while speaking on my behalf to the court. While going through this process is stressful and exhausting, Laurie has encouraged me the whole way to keep my head up. A divorce is a battle, especially in my case, and I am thankful every day I have her and her office in my corner. She response to every phone or e-mail in a timely matter. She gives me very clear instructions on how to write responses to the opposing side and how to proceed in each step of the divorce. I also trust her and her office without a doubt.

Pathetic lawyer
She was quick to hear my case for a consultation,but once I hired her,she never communicated in a timely manner,no response to emails for weeks,had to sent repeated emails, I had to call her office frequently to get a hold of her to discuss important updates -she used to be unavailable half the time,very slow in filing for paperwork which was crucial in my case ,I think she takes on more cases than she can handle ,overall once I hired her,she seemed very disinterested in the case and not empathetic at all.She dragged my case for months until I got so frustrated,fired her and hired another great lawyer.I am sure if I would have continued with her,she would have taken it to trial due to being disinterested and mind numbingly slow. Do yourself a favour ,don't waste your hard earned money and look somewhere else.

Too busy to help you
I’m sure she’s a good family attorney if she actually has time for your case, but she completely screwed me. It took over three weeks to even get a phone consultation, meaning I had to file my divorce response on my own. Then she charged me $350 for an hour on the phone, and agreed to take my case. Then a week later she told me she had a trial coming up and couldn’t take my case after all, meaning I had to start my attorney search all over.
