    Anonymous review posted on

    I recently hired Patricia Nelson for a fairly simple non-contested divorce. Patricia walked me through the process, prepared and filed the appropriate documents and represented me in court. She was helpful, courteous and professional.

    In 2014, I consulted with an attorney in Everett, WA who helped me with temporary orders regarding a Legal Separation. Later, my husband and I decided to dismiss/suspend the Legal Separation. By March/April of 2015, I knew I needed an attorney's assistance again and decided to restart the Legal Separation process. The attorney I had used originally was unavailable to help me right away, so they recommended Patty Nelson. Since the Spring of 2015 to date, I continue to utilize Patty for legal issues concerning my situation. She is extremely knowledgeable with an amazing history of experience. Not only has she been a family law attorney, but she is also a mediator and a pro-tem Snohomish County Commissioner. She knows what to expect based on current court trends/cases where she has been involved as an attorney, mediator or commissioner. Her experience in these different positions makes her unique and valuable to her clients. Additionally, Patty works in a modest office with one assistant. She and Rose make an excellent team and are very efficient. The costs associated with my dealings with St. Clair Law are much lower than what I paid in dealing with the much larger office I had utilized in the past. Patty has mentioned several times that a divorce (or separation) shouldn't break the bank. She does her best to make recommendations to her clients in order to minimize the cost of the process. Unlike other attorneys, there is no monthly fee for holding your deposit, and there are no "hidden charges" for which you were not previously aware. I appreciate Patty as an attorney, her professionalism and desire to make her clients' experience with her as economical as possible. I personally appreciate that since I have had to solicit her services several times after the original proceedings were finished.

    Patty was straight forward, knowledgeable about the divorce process, clear in the required steps it takes to move a divorce through the Court system, and efficient with her time, and my time, when processing my divorce. This saved me and my ex-wife a lot of money in putting together an amicable settlement agreement that was fair to both parties. Patty and her legal assistant Rose are a great team and I would highly recommend them to anyone going through a divorce.

    Patricia explained everything in detail in terms I could relate. She offered excellent advise and guided me through the process making my experience as smooth of a transition as possible. Explained me to what my rights are and was always concerned I was being treated fairly. Her response from her office was always handled in a quick manner anytime I had a question. She was a perfect match and I am very happy I chose her to help me through the legal process of a divorce.

    Have had SEVERAL issues with my sons father for 5 years. Been through a few different lawyers. Patricia is the FIRST lawyer to actually listen to me and and my concerns and help me through the whole process. I felt calm and like everything was explained to me so that I wouldn't have to worry about anything. I will be using her again, definitely!

    Ms Nelson was recommended to me by a good friend of mine , the first time I met her she was straightforward and explained how things work and what to expect.
    She is very organized, professional, and knowledgable. She walked me through the legal-path of a difficult divorce. She showed concern for my children and myself during the process. She cares! She was very patient and understanding. Never gave me false hope. She is honest!
    I noticed being with her around the court, she has earned a great deal of respect in her profession.
    The legal adventure was a difficult and exhausting journey for me and my family but I am pleased with the outcome.
    Rose, legal assistant, is GREAT!! I talk to her frequently and she is very helpful and pleasant each time. She is very informative and prompt.
    Thank you!

  • EXCELLENT DIVORCE LAWYER

    Patty represented me 3 years ago in a high conflict divorce. She guided me through it with straightforward advise about what could and couldn't be done. She is very knowledgable and prefers to work things out but will fight when necessary. Since then my ex-wife has taken me back to court many times and Patty has represented me, she has never lost yet. I am still going back to court but Patty will win and fight for what is right. I highly recommend her for your family law issues and Rose keeps you informed of anything that is needed if necessary. Patty is also very honest about what is worth your money or not worth your money and will tell you upfront so there is no surprises when the judges decisions are made. Patty is an outstanding straightforward lawyer who will fight for your family law needs.

  • Third Party Custody for Grandparents

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Linda

    Thank goodness we found Patti when we did! Our young grandaughter had been living with us for over a year. Her mother was homeless with many issues. When we caught her stealing from us again, we had the mother arrested. When she was bailed out by her friends, her first stop was to come by and tell our grandaughter she was coming back to take her out of state. The tug of war using our granddaughter to control us was over!

    Thankfully a trusted and respected colleague recomended Patti. We called on Friday, had an appontment the next Monday. After explaining the situation, we had a restraining order that same day! Patti lead us through the third party custody process, keeping us informed every step of the way. Her compassion, experience, and professionalism made a very difficult process attainable. I will certainly recommend her to anyone seeking legal assistance!

    Divorce sucks. Patty understands that and led me through the process with minimal fuss and tried to come up with ways to save me money. She is very objective which made me comfortable. The last things I needed to hear were unkind words toward the woman I loved or me. The process took much longer than expected but the delays were due to the other lawyer who deserves a reprimand.
    Patty was kind when needed and rather like a stern mother when needed.
