Miranda worked extremely hard for me with amazing results. I had a very difficult and complex divorce situation compounded by a custody battle. Which ended with a positive result and more importantly a fair one . She was always well prepared and willing to do whatever was needed. I am very fortunate to have found a person like her to represent me during such a difficult time. I would highly recommend her!

I found Baner & Baner Dec of 2011. I had just taken my son from his grandparents he had been living with since he was two weeks old, that June. I ran into all sorts of road blocks trying to provide for him without any legal rights to him. Miranda and her husband helped me file the paternity test to establish my rights and begin the parenting plan (that's what they call custody in WA) process.
It was unsettling for my son's mom that I wanted everything on paper and that Derrick would live with me 24/7/365. She refused to sign, made arguments and excuses for many things, but Mrs. Baner kept me floored and focused on what we were doing. A year of a mental and emotional rollercoaster and the judge granted me everything I asked for.
My son is turning 8 next month and I've raised him alone for five and a half years. My love for him has change his mother's perceptions too. She now understands I was never attacking her; I only wanted Derrick to be with a parent. Time gave way for love, compassion, and mutual respect, and all that was facilitated by the Baners.
Words alone will never convey my gratitude. Contacting and allowing Baner and Baner to represent me has paid me back in joy multiple times over. Thank you, Miranda, and God bless your family, ma'am.

Miranda Baner was very up front about everything and let you know how she thought things would play out. She took the time to look over all of my evidence that I brought forth which was a lot. Very hard worker and will definitely recommend to other people in need!

Miranda won our case! She is a WONDERFUL lawyer.
She listened, explained each process clearly and fought for us and our child.
We couldn’t have won this case without her.
I would recommend her to anyone in a tricky custody case.
She’s knowledgeable, works with a great team and had a huge heart for family law.
This is a lawyer who KNOWS the ropes AND has a heart.

Ms. Baner kept me informed through out the entire process, her fees are reasonable, and she returned my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I fully trusted her knowledge of the divorce process, and felt as thought she always has her client's best interest in mind.

Miranda was the best family lawyer ever. I went to, two other family lawyers before her and while I was not disappointed by one of the other two I was overwhelmed by Miranda. Her office staff and partner (husband) were always helpful and knowledgeable in every aspect of my case. As a man in Washington state and being black I felt that maybe the court process would be difficult. I also had the a punishing experience in family court with another attorney before Miranda. Miranda came in fixed all the problems that I brought her and took my case with the seriousness and professionalism that you would expect from a seasoned attorney. Miranda took What was 6 years of litigation and got me an overwhelmingly favorable patenting plan that suited the needs of my family and I. I also got full custody of my son a few weeks after She was done due to the work and foundation that She built. I was happy with just having the parenting plan in my favor and due to the continued effort She gave, I was able to get my son and raise him with all of his family. Most of all I was impressed with Miranda's caring and concern. I was done with my case and She still contacted me to see how everything was going. I don't know where She might ever come up short because I never saw it but I'm sure the compassion, knowledge, and honest concern would always make up for anything that anyone could perceive as such. Miranda left me feeling like I mattered, She cared, and She was part of the family. Thank you Baner and Baner for a great new beginning to the rest of my life! I Love these guys!

I hired Miranda for a custody case. She wasn't prepared for court. Most of the paperwork that was filed she had me write. When she re-typed the information on legal documents there were several grammatical errors and incorrect information. It was embarrassing. At the first hearing, she appeared confused. The Judge was asking questions and she was looking to me for the answers instead of referring to her paperwork for items we already discussed. She was shy and timid and didnt know how to handle the opposing parties agressive tactics. I ended up getting a new attorney prior to trial because I was so unsure of her abilities. The opposing party had no case. My new attorney was able to turn the bad situation around and defeated the opposing party. I wish I wouldnt have wasted my money retaining her. I would not recommend her to anyone. Especially if the opposing party counsel is aggressive. She is far too shy.

I met with Miranda after my exboyfriend hired himself an attorney and had me sign a parenting plan which I knew little to nothing about it. I gave Miranda all of my paperwork and she was able to get me money I was owed,which I knew nothing about.Miranda kept me informed as needed. She was knowledgable about the case and was able to get it resolved without even going to court.. She is a very patient,understanding Attorney.. She is very passionate about children,their rights and being treated fair... I will recommend her to anyone needing assistance...

Entering a custody dispute is a highly stressful time. Miranda was the only person who could give me any ideas of what to expect from all of it and she kept me on track. She cares about families and I never got the impression that I was just a job to her. She was also a great mediator for a time when tact over aggression is key in dealing with friction between parties. She was firm but I think conveyed to the other party my wishes to come to a mutual agreement in a complicated matter.

Miranda has worked hard to ensure that my divorce goes as smoothly and professionally as possible. She is very prompt with updates, responding to emails, filing paperwork and scheduling court dates. All I have to do is sign paperwork. She is very personable and I feel completely comfortable when I talk with her. I would definitely recommend Miranda to others!
