Desiree is a "BULLDOG" a STRAIGHT SHOOTER! Lol and these are understatements! Honestly Desire is someone that I am more than happy and had the honor of allowing to represent me in my case. Before coming to Desiree I thought that I'd just be another statistic. "A child support paying father in the state of Washington, with no say or quality time in my child's life." Desiree has proven to me that this would not be the case in my situation and soooo much more. Not only that but, Desiree and the rest of her staff went above and beyond, even working after hours to make sure that they were on the best path to acheive the set goal. This was not just in my case... I was always included and aware of all decision making. Even when I had some doubt "which was very little" Desiree assured me that everything would be ok. And it was! I am truly pleased with all in what Desiree and her staff has done for me. I am so happy that I have the Hosannah law group on my side rather than me trying to go against them. Outside of my case, I feel that I have an group of friends that will be everlasting. What you are doing for me and my family will not only have a positive impact now but for the rest of our lives. ESPECIALLY my child. And for that I will forever be in debt to you. "Lol" not financially. Thank you soo much Desiree and entire staff.

I recently posted an unfair review of this attorney. Now that I think about the case I know she did her best to represent me and was very professional and too the point. People let emotions run high when the outcome in not in their favor. Fact is she is a great person whom I would recommend to others.

Hired Desiree to help w/an adoption case. My husband wanted to adopt my son, it was uncontested and it took Desiree forever to get the paperwork in. Overall the process took 6 months. When I would call to get updates on the case I would have to call for a week to 2 weeks straight before I would hear anything back. Then the day of the actually adoption, she doesn't even show up to the courthouse. She sent a different attorney, a Friend of hers. She had no idea what she was doing. There was no communication as to what was going on. She's absolutely terrible!!
