Highly recommend Bryon
Bryon successfully navigated me through a difficult divorce with an agreement my ex and I are both happy with. He was very reliable in answering my questions quickly and pushing the case forward.

Thank you
Hiring Attorney Guymon was one of the best decisions I could have made entering my divorce, he and his paralegal, Tressa Smith, made all the difference in navigating and battling through a challenging divorce. Aside from their legal expertise, they handled my case with such care and compassion. They listened, helped me remain calm in some of the most trying times in my life, and stood up for me always. Their level of prompt and continuous communication was outstanding, I was always kept in the loop in real-time. I never felt alone or unprotected during the twelve-plus months of working with them. Ultimately, they enabled me to find my way out of a 20+ year marriage with my integrity intact and enough time and resources to find a new beginning in life. I highly recommend them to anyone going through a challenging divorce.

Professional, full of grace and kindness
Bryon is wonderful. He supported me and my spouse through every step of our divorce with grace and compassion. During an extremely stressful portion of our lives, he and his team acted efficiently and professionally. It was a huge relief to know that someone was always there taking care of the details we wouldn't have even thought about. It gave us back the energy to just focus on each other during this difficult time. Really kind man. Thank you Bryon!

Timely, professional, and exceptional
While the situation I found myself in was not a pleasant one, attorney Guymon was nothing but a pleasure to work with. He guided me through every step of the way and was spot on with every recommendation he made. His knowledge, skills, and abilities were proven as he navigated us through the case flawlessly. He created a step by step plan to get me back to the parenting plan I needed that the both the court and I felt was fair. Using his counsel was extremely valuable and I don't think anyone could have done a better job. I appreciated the timeliness in which he always responded or made himself available when I had a question. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I would recommend him to anyone needing family Law Assistance!
Bryon was outstanding to work with and I would recommend to anyone in need of family law services. He was very professional, competent, responsive, honest and friendly. He was also very understanding and patient with me , especially under stressful circumstances. He was calm, articulate in his rationale and wasn't the type of attorney who just try to collect as many fees as possible.

Honest, Ethical and A class act to work with.
It is with great pleasure that I write this to highly recommend and offer sincere gratitude to Bryon Guymon, and his paralegal Tressa Smith, Of Gig Harbor Family Law Group. It seems a bit out of the ordinary to be writing a review for someone who helped me legally end my marriage, but the process of working with Bryon, and Tressa brought me to a place of peace, forgiveness, and beyond. Bryon is a class act, he is not interested in fighting just to increase your bill, and add unnecessary stress, and practices with ethics and honesty being at the at forefront of all his interactions. Even with running in to a few hiccups along the way with the opposing counsel, in the end he was able to find a way to make the ending of my marriage as amicably as possible, while still keeping the over all best interest in myself and the children. Nobody enters a marriage with the intention of getting divorced, unfortunately as you know, it does happens, and I am extremely grateful I had Bryon and Tressa along the way through this journey. I started this process with other attorneys in the area, and I am so glad I was able to find Attorney Guymon along the way.

Outstanding Representation
I recently hired Bryon to handle my divorce and a restraining order against me. Not only did he help get the restraining order dismissed he helped tremendously getting our uncontested resolution finalized. Bryon was really empathetic throughout the process and kept me in the loop on any changed. He really helped the process a lot. It was a very emotional situation and he helped make me feel as comfortable as possible. Would recommend Bryon to any of my friends and family.

Professional and Knowledgeable
I highly recommend Bryon. After meeting with other attorneys regarding my case, I felt most comfortable and confident with Bryon. Throughout my case, Bryon stayed in close contact by keeping me informed of any developments. He was quick to respond to my questions and concerns related to my case. I felt that Bryon was truly invested in my case and dedicated to getting the best outcome for me. He is professional, knowledgeable, and very good at what he does. I recommend him without reservation.

Excellent representation
Bryon was not only enormously helpful in getting my charge reduced, he was also knowledgeable and informative, offering me excellent legal counsel in a calming manner that also helped me through the stress of being in court.

Ticket Dismissed
Bryon handled my speeding ticket issued by the Washington State Patrol. One week prior to my court date he called and informed me of the major discrepancies in this case, and left me feeling at ease of a possible win. On my way to court I got a call stating that Bryon was running behind because of another case in another county, which gave me a great amount of anxiety. However before I got too worked up, I was informed that the court had been already called and informed of the situation and that I had nothing to worry about. Of course unforeseen occurrences are bound to happen, and I was highly impressed with the procedures set in place in the event of these occurrences. Bryon did arrive not too long after court began, and my case ended up being heard last (due to the tardiness) however he professionally proved that the trooper waited way beyond the allotted time to file this ticket and the case was dismissed. The only other thing that I think could help Bryon be an even better attorney is to work on his public speaking and confidence in the court room, I felt he was just as nervous as I was while presenting the evidence to the judge, which I think he will overcome with more time and experience, he has great potential and is a great asset to the Callahan Law Firm. Thank you very much for your time and commitment.
