Bill Pope is the best!
Bill Pope is an ethical, common-sense lawyer who has my utmost respect. He's a bulldog as an advocate for his clients and is deeply compassionate. Beyond his practice, Bill has been a force in community service for the Arts. I commend him for this...no easy commitment for a man with such a thriving business.

Family Attorney | Aug 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Bill the entirety of my 20+ year career here in Thurston County and have worked with him as opposing counsel on many cases. I have employed Bill as a consultant drawing on his many years of expertise. If I had a need for a family law attorney for myself, Bill would be on my short list."
Family Attorney | Jun 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Bill for over 20 years and had the privilege of working with him for about 7 years. He pioneered a unique approach to family law in this community which filled a definite need and made him one of the most sought after divorce attorneys in this part of the state. His distinctive approach is to provide quality representation and to accept the reality that any dissolution is a competition in which the lawyers primary function is to gain the most possible for his client. This philosophy necessarily demands zealous advocacy in both written and spoken word which Bill consistently provides on behalf of his fortunate clients. This does not imply that Bill gives short shrift to the ideals of professionalism, courtesy, and amicable settlements. He always aspires to the highest callings of our profession, while energetically championing the interests of his clients. While Bill hardly needs endorsement from me, I am still honored to be the first on Avvo to sing his praises."
