Always outstanding results
Each time that I've needed legal help with family law issues I've always gone directly to Anthony Zorich. He knows the WA statues well and knows the best avenues to take to take to achieve to a reasonable outcome. Each time I've retained his services its been a positive outcome and well worth the investment.

AMAZING!
Tony and his team were completely amazing! Divorce is tough, and expensive and Harbor Family Law made the whole process much easier to deal with, and they kept the cost down as much as they could. Now that it's over I can say that I would have paid double what I did to have them on my team and working for me! Great job Harbor Family Law!

Very Supportive And Informative Attorney
Anthony, and his team did an amazing job for me during the most stressful time in my life. He explained things to me, and had me extremely prepared during the whole process. Very responsive, and made me feel like they really cared about my case. I would recommend Anthony, and Bliss law group if you want an attorney who really knows what he is doing, and truly cares about getting you the best outcome possible.

Amazing!
My ex wife had a very aggressive attorney who would argue everything and his letters were very demeaning and insulting. I had an attorney from a big name firm and felt like I was getting walked all over so I hired Tony and it was amazing how much the tone from opposing counsel changed, They knew they couldn't walk all over Tony and so they completely changed the way they worked with us. The best part about Tony though is he only aggressive when he needs to be. He never started the battles and would always try to find a reasonable solution first, but he always made sure I was not getting trampled. Tony was also very good about pushing back on me when I was being unreasonable or overly emotional. He was good about helping me focus on what mattered and not getting hung up on things that really bothered me, but weren't financially worth arguing over. I highly recommend Tony, especially after seeing how things went with an attorney who wasn't willing to fight for me.

Highly recommend
Anthony Zorich and his legal team with Bliss Law Group are top notch! They were recommended to me by a very dear friend who is a Pierce County Judge. They were informative, laying out all my options and all the outcomes that could have happened in my case giving me the confidence to make sound informative decisions. Anthony and his team answered my many questions quickly and in a way I could understand. I highly recommend Bliss Law Group, specifically Anthony Zorich.

Amazing!!
Anthony and his team at Bliss law group are wonderful! They helped me so much through my divorce and getting custody of my kids. Every question I had was always promptly answered. They were always extremely thorough on paperwork and any materials they needed from me. When we walked into court on the final days I was extremely confident and thankful I had hired Bliss law group!

Fantastic!
Even in the best of situations, divorce is a complicated process. Both Tony and his paralegal Tracie made this process as straightforward as possible. They kept me informed during the process, explaining what I needed to do and what would happen along every step of the way. They were highly responsive, answering all of my questions quickly and providing clear guidance on my options allowing me to make fully informed decisions. I cannot recommend Tony and Bliss Law enough. They truly cared about ensuring a positive outcome for me, and my children, as well as protecting my future.

Mrs. KTB
Anthony J. Zorich Jr. is simultaneously personable and professional. Working with him is like working with a good friend who is at the top of his class. While preparing for trial, he was diligent to keep me informed of every step of the process, to include simplifying legal terms so that I had a full understanding going forward. When I had questions, he left none unanswered. He was meticulously well prepared for court with supportive caselaw and statutes to carry the weight of our case. From his opening statement, his dealings with the witnesses, and his closing argument, he did everything within his ability to ensure we would prevail at trial. Our victory was a smooth one! Anthony’s passion for family law is very evident. He fought tirelessly behind the scenes and graciously in court for us. I entrusted him with the safety of my precious grand babies. He did not fail them or us. When I faltered in thinking that a victory was possible, he was there to assuage my fears. He stood confident in the law, and in his abilities. Anthony is a credit to his profession and a great asset to The Bliss Law Group. I count it a privilege to have had him represent us. I would gladly retain Anthony again and happily refer him to family and friends without hesitation.

Wonderful & Caring Attorney
I had a bit of a unique situation and contacted Tony to assist. When you are being harassed stalked and subpoenaed by your significant others ex, it’s a bit alarming to say the least. Experience: From the moment they answered the phone they were caring and understanding! The staff patiently listened, explained the process and worked together as a team! Consult: Attorneys can be intimidating and detached, When I met Tony for the first time, I was panicked and in tears and he listened to the situation. He genuinely cared. He took the time to explain a few options, not only did he make the legal jargon understandable. He brought me a lot of peace of mind. Communication: Tony and his paralegal are great in keeping you in the loop, I received email messages when it was important. And they were detailed and clear! Cost: Here is the thing, you get what you pay for…They were up front about their cost which in my opinion was fair. Overall If you want a caring attorney who fights for you, I would highly recommend calling Tony!

Made a Painful Divorce Painless
Or as painless as he could. My divorce was messy and complicated, and I was leaving someone who fought dirty and does not play by the rules. Anthony and his team, especially paralegal Kristen Allred, had my back at every turn. They protected me and my son’s interests, were readily available when I needed questions answered, and got everything done efficiently and accurately. This could have been so much uglier. I’m so glad I found Bliss Law Group.

Highly professional, well-respected, and efficient
In my ongoing legal battles against my ex-wife, I have previously utilized two other attorneys. Prior concerns with those attorneys ranged from lack of responsiveness to indecisiveness. Tony helped put all of my previous experiences out of my mind. From the initial meeting, he was a consummate professional. His demeanor is attentive and direct. He is adept at assessing the entire situation and approaching a case with an over-arching view of how to meet with success. I initially retained Tony's services to combat a vindictive and libelous contempt motion filed by my ex. Bottom line--the motion was thrown out before going to court and mediation resulted in my obtaining more concrete boundaries to keep further nonsense from happening again. Very impressed and I highly recommend.

Military Divorce/Custody
Tony Zorich was an outstanding attorney who made the uncomfortable and ugly processes of divorce and custody agreements relatively simple. He put me at ease throughout the entirety of my case with his reliable and prompt communications regarding case matters and my questions. I would highly recommend his services!

Custody of children granted to Father
At the first meeting with Anthony there was little doubt that he was the perfect attorney that my family needed. I felt as if I was under unprovoked assault and clearly being unfairly treated. It took him a matter of minutes to determine that I was not getting the proper legal representation that I needed. During these minutes, he made it clear that I did indeed have a substantial case to present to the court. Being a father I felt that the deck was likely stacked against me and my children in courts (the statistics paint a dismal picture). So trepidation and panic began part and parcel of my life. This trepidation was soon to end and justice was about to take shape for my family. Anthony worked effectively and quickly built up a case and made his strategy clear. He dictated the tempo of the opposition and forced integrity into their equation. When integrity and court orders were violated Anthony wasted no time in consulting with me and made the right legal move at the right time. Knowing the particulars, the opposition’s weakness(es), and the totality of the case, was all that was needed to effectively strike. The legal arguments, once put pen to paper, consisted of facts, facts, facts. There was no waste in his preparation and the pleadings he created were absolutely undeniable and filled with the truth. Anthony’s persuasive oral argument(s) in court left the commissioner with no choice but to grant me a favorable ruling and best of all, my ex-wife was held in contempt of court for her outlandish behaviour. My ex-wife was sobbing in court and had to be physically held up for fear of fainting during his arguments; I felt a ping of empathy for my mother of my children, but in the end Anthony was only presenting the true facts of the case. In the end, I am now a father in custody of his children. My children are safe, happy, and this, in large part, is due to the hard work put in by Anthony and Mallory. I am eternally grateful I sought his counsel and it was well worth the costs. Results matter, and Anthony and Mallory are the best in the business in achieving them. Should I need more legal counsel I will definitely seek Anthony Zorich again without hesitation. Respectfully, Ernest

Awesome!!
He was representing a friend and I was in the gallery watching. He presented the truth with confidence and was on top of it when the respondent tried to pass on information he heard from someone else. He was quick with appropriate responses. He did an excellent job! I highly recommend him!

An Attorney I can Respect
If you are reading this, then, you are either considering hiring an attorney, or trying to check out the reviews for your ex’s attorney. I sympathize for both parties, one for having to go through such an emotional and financial shipwreck, the other, for the fact you will not, I repeat, you will not, receive what you hope for if Mr. Zorich is representing your ex-spouse. No one can accurately prepare you for the roller coaster of a divorce, particularly one lasting over 25 years, as was my case. When I first met Tony, it was such a relief, someone who said, "I am here to protect you legally and financially in order to put you in the best position possible to rebuild your new life as a single person" My ex-husband had assumed that he could walk away from the marriage, split assets 50/50, sell the house and have all messy matters completed in 6 months. Because of Tony’s assistance, I became a bit of an expert on spousal support, retirement splits, temporary orders, depositions, discovery papers, witness lists, and mediation. Tony will explain to you in detail the legal steps (and there are many) that will need to be taken. Tony is confident and that is evident when he makes a court appearance. He commands the room, shakes hands with all, even opposing counsel. Once speaking on your behalf, he is eloquent, well- spoken, and never whiny. My ex-husband changed attorneys through our divorce and Tony informed me truthfully that things were going to be very different and tough. However, he reiterated that he had success against this attorney and was confident that we would do well. The opposing attorney tried to antagonize Tony (including me) and he did not take the bait. He is able to remain professional in especially heated moments. I felt like I could trust him and he sincerely cared about my case and results. This is an attorney I respect and just wish he would practice on his own so I can use his services for any other legal matters I might have in the future. My case ended with mediation, 6 weeks shy of our court date. I had spousal support during our separation--which was actually quite generous and was able to keep the property I wanted with a cash out to my ex. Tony’s fees are higher than average and I needed financial help in order to maintain his services. The sad reality is that divorce is very expensive and the legal professionals are those who really get ahead from broken marriages. Mallory is an excellent assistant to him. Both of them respond to questions and understand the importance of building client relationships. I recommend hiring Mr. Zorich for your divorce. I also recommend you take an active role in your divorce and defend yourself as best as you can. You have to be the smart soldier and let Tony be the captain.

An Amazing Lawyer
Anthony recently helped my son and I in a divorce that while not massively complex, was quite contentious due to my ex-husband having some mental disabilities. Anthony was an excellent lawyer to help in just such a situation having academic and professional experience in how to handle such divorces and family situations. He was wonderfully professional, was realistic and down-to-earth, and was very accommodating with my schedule (I am a public school teacher). He really made it easy for me to understand the process, keep my expectations realistic, and also ensured that everything was properly done (my ex's lawyer did not make things easy). I would recommend Anthony completely. He made a difficult situation and process easier to handle.
