Excellent Support
Victoria has been a great support to our family over the years, helping us navigate unfamiliar tax and estate planning systems. We always look forward to our meetings with Victoria as she is both friendly and professional and we know we will get the help we need.

Victoria S. Byerly
My wife and I worked with a local established law firm in the Olympia area to develop a will and accompanying documents for us. After the preliminary consultations were completed and draft we received the draft documents, the association between Ms. Byerly and the law firm ended. We paid the remaining bill for services and ended our contact with the law firm. We contacted Ms. Byerly to complete the process of will development and she committed to help bring our will development to conclusion without further costs to us, despite her not having received additional funds from her previous law firm. She quickly followed through with her commitment, including accommodating several concerns we had with the draft documents. We commend Ms. Byerly for her gracious and generous follow up to our needs even though her departure from the law firm was not amicable.

An attorney with heart, intellect, and passion. She can tackle complex legal issues with professionalism, aplomb and results!
Driven to achieve just results with passion and compassion, Victoria offered me vigorous representation to tackle complex tax law with great results. She handled my case with judicious care. Victoria used good and timely communication and vigorous advocacy. She also demonstrated a thorough understanding of tax law. These qualities offered me considerable comfort and relief when I faced intimidating legal hurdles. I had confidence that we would prevail. Ultimately, the positive outcome of our case is evidence of her talents. I gladly and enthusiastically refer others to Victoria. They share similar experiences.

she is the best!
When I first met VICTORIA it was a time of great confusion. VICTORIA guided me with her thorough communication and professioalism. She is flexible and accomodating. She constantly assured me that "we will get through this" and "you will be okay". Victoria is the best in all realms; taxes, financial recovery processes etc. SHe is the best. I highly recommend the PARR/BYERLY LAW FIRM.

Highly recommended
Went to Victoria Byerly to rescind a trust and recreate our wills. She is friendly, courteous, professional, assessable for questions and sharp as a tack. We both liked her and felt comfortable with her ability and knowledge. She is highly recommended by us.

Would not recommend
I would never recommend Victoria Byerly for any legal services. We went to her with a complicated estate we were taking over, with difficult beneficiaries. Ms. Byerly, without consulting us, decided to send a copy of the private trust to all the beneficiaries. She has caused us tremendous trouble with the beneficiaries, and executing the trust.
