Posted by Tasha
I came here to review my family law lawyer options. I went with Margaret because it looked like she was the best...and I was absolutely right. Margaret was truly a guide and mentor through my legal battle. She spoke plainly about my options and my chances. She listened to my concerns and often replaced my ideas with better ideas born from her years of helping parents do what's best for their kids. I felt truly supported by her and found peace through trusting my case was in the best hands. She often called at night or on the weekends showing me she took my case as seriously as all the other cases taking up her time. My case lasted about 9 months and I got the results I wanted without every going to court. I owe that entirely to her creativity and masterful understanding of the system. Remember that if you don't choose Margaret, you may be on the other side of the table from her. That is a scary place to be.

In my consult with Margaret I found her to be extremely informative and able to explain the process and complexities of a custody case in a clear manner. She has the ability to talk to a variety of audiences that either have no knowledge of the process or have been involved in the process. She is passionate, understanding but also does not mislead you.

Margaret Brost got the job done, and it seemed to be done quickly. I didn't get to work with her a whole lot since I was working with her assistant mostly. The employees their are kind and seem to be proficient. She seemed to be about average in price when I looked around at my options.

Over a few weeks I had interactions with Margaret over a rental lease. She lacks ethics, compassion, and any fundamentals of humanity. Was unlawful when she felt she could get away with it. A real life Dickens Scrooge. Don't hire her if you value the general good of society.

I hired her because she seemed smart and aggressive, something that is good for a lawyer. The problem is, the attitude works against you. She overcharges, is often irritable and hostile when consulting, and a charge that could of been overlooked by my insurance company wasn't because of her clumsy handling of some paper work. When discussing this with her she lashed out, which was the last straw for me.
Don't hire this person if you want someone on your side and is fair.

Margaret's prices are so steep! She makes you do all the work yet nickle and dimes you with every conversation and phone call. She also humiliated me in front of my ex's attorney by yelling at me for something she was supposed to do then appoligized later when NOT in front of his attorney! She is fake and a scam - please don't hire her as your lawyer!!

If your like me you read reviews to help make your decisions. That is exactly why I am taking the time to write this.
Many reviews stated that Ms. Brost would cut them off in conversations. I thought heck, she just wants to get to the point and there's nothing wrong about an aggressive Lawyer. In fact, that's what we're all mostly looking for. Thing is, Ms. Brost cuts you off simply bc she doesn't want to hear what you have to say. She is highly unprofessional.
When I hired her she was told that she would deal ONLY with me unless it was absolutely as my husband works full time and I am a stay at home mother. I've previously done this with 2 other Lawyers and had no issues. Ms. Brost assured me that was no issue at the initial consult. I also gave her lots of documentation BUT she refused most of it stating that "if she needed it, she would let me know". Turns out for her staff to take in the initial paperwork is a fee BUT when they call it's a fee AND then when they enter it -yep there's a fee!
I figure that cost me about an extra $200 just right there.
Then the very next day she calls my husband over trivial things and has him come in. We realized later that she was delaying a meeting between the 2 parties bc she wanted them to go to court.
After my husbands encounter w/her he was shocked bc she was calling our sons Mom names. We don't curse and not once did Ms. Brost curse in my presence but did in my husbands. But why? Very unprofessional.
At one point I told Ms. Brost that she needed to speak w/me and she informed me that there was a privacy issue. Hmmm...
Then at court she threw my husband under the bus. See, our sons Mother is Bi-Polar and we have tried working w/her for countless years. She only knows one way- hers:(. But she stated that "she didn't understand why we were even in court, they should seek couples therapy".
Thing is Ms. Brost would have her staff call me about the bill. She wouldn't of course.
Bottom line, not one thing promised was delivered. More Child Support & extra-curricular activities to pay: as well as Car Insurance AND Braces that could've been TRIPLE COVERED for zero OOP expense!
Go with another Lawyer that will listen AND not cut you off, do most OR at least some of what they promise, are professional, AND you can get them for HALF THE PRICE!!

Margaret Brost is a perfect mix of relatable, caring and confident. She took the time to listen to my concerns and was able to help me understand what was best for my situation. She knows what she is doing and looks out for the best interested of her clients. Margaret went above and beyond to help me in my case. She consistently kept me up to date on my case. Thank you Margaret for all you have done for me.

I came to Margaret with a complex divorce situation involving child custody/visitation/support which originated in CA (my residence) and, subsequently, transferred to WA state jurisdiction (ex-wife's residence) on technicalities discovered by my ex-wife's attorney after 5 1/2 years of dealings through the CA court system. I needed a "great" attorney...and I received one in Margaret Brost. Her knowledge of Washington State Family Law is superior. From the initial consultation to the final judgment, Margaret and her professional staff guided me through the process thoroughly while clearly explaining my legal options along the way. I can't thank you and your staff enough, Margaret!
Bottom line...If you're looking for the BEST representation, look no further than Margaret Brost.
