Renee DeFreece is a strong and confident attorney. My husband and I hired Renee to help us rescue our grandson from abuse.
Renee took on our third party custody case with confidence. We worked closely through the entire process so we can speak from that place of personal experience. Grand Parents do not have rights in the state of Washington. When we discovered abuse and neglect, with our 5 year old grandchild, we were especially horrified that we could not step in to protect his innocent humanity. We now have full legal custody of our grandson, while his parents work to restore a safe and suitable live for themselves.
Renee was knowledgeable of the laws. She was tough when we needed her to be but also, gentle and understanding with our pain. She held a space for us to understand legalities and the whole landscape, not just what we wanted; out of fear that we would never see our grandchild again. Renee walked through this journey with us, she was our teacher, our emotional support and our inspiration in that she thinks deeply but speaks at a level that we can understand about the strategy and the law.
We felt confident with Renee representing us in the courtroom. She is well respected in the courthouse and still was kind and humble. Her personal attention brought us comfort that she was representing us in such a worrisome matter.
Stacie Beery was our paralegal. She was great about helping us navigate through the paperwork, dates and attending the right hearings. Stacie’s gentle approach and quiet confidence provided exactly the professional yet personal support we needed.
We highly recommend Renee and Stacie.

I hired her to attend a hearing for my child support case. She lied to me and said she filed my declaration, but never did. Then she advised me to sign a document that would wave all back child support, or hold it in abeyance and in exchange the other parent would forego all visitation. She told me that this agreement was illegal, but I should sign it anyway. She encouraged me to have the opposing lawyer write the document because she knew it was illegal. I am now paying a different lawyer to pursue the back support and modify things that she agreed to, but that I didn't want to agree to.

I endorse this lawyer. over the years I've watched Renee and she is a thorough, thoughtful advocate who is unflappable before the bench because she is well prepared. She knows how to resolve issues and get her clients results.
