This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Lina’s comment: “I have been an attorney for eighteen years. I was disciplined by the bar 12 years ago. This was an isolated event and is not representative of my skills, character, expertise or work ethic. My practice is focused on all aspects of family law. I handle adoptions, divorces, modifications, paternity actions and complex custody matters. I frequently sit as Pro Tem Commissioner at the Thurston County Family and Juvenile Court. I have been peer review rated as BV Distinguished by Martindale Hubbell.”

It was a privilage to work with Beckford law. The entire staff is warm and friendly. Lina is very knowledgeable in her field of service. She is a geniune and honest person. I believe she cares deeply for her clients and will go the extra mile to help you. She will not give you unreasonable expectations. I felt listened too when I verbalized my frustrations regarding my specific case. My para legal was excellent as well and worked hard pulling the paper work together. Lina and her staff are excellent in all they do.

I am a grandmother raising my grandchild who is only 2 yrs old and was court order to drop her off at a home that I knew in my heart was unsafe and very dangerous. This had been going on for over a year and I was beside myself, I couldnâ€™t sleep, I was always upset and frustrated. I had received some legal advice that was not helpful and resulted in all my paperwork to the courts being rejected, all that time, effort and money was just a waste. I was scared to keep taking my grandchild to this place every weekend and yet it seemed there was no place to turn for help, it just seemed like every corner I turned there was a road block. One day I decided to call Beckford Law (best thing I ever did) I met with Lina Beckford for one hour and left feeling a peace in my heart I hadnâ€™t felt for over a year. Briefly and to the point: within 2 weeks I was in court and the order was modified and I no longer have to take my grandchild to this place for visits. Something I had been trying to accomplish for months (almost a year) was completed within a 2 week period. I was amazed at Lina's language of law and how she presented my case, and when she needed to, she didnâ€™t hesitate to push back or make sure the facts were presented. I can finally sleep at night and my life is much more content and peaceful. I canâ€™t thank this attorney enough and her staff were so very kind to me when I called (which was a lot) if you are at your wits end over child custody or family law, this is the attorney to call. Thank you Lina and the staff for all you have done me and my family; we really canâ€™t thank you enough.

Lina was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad I chose her to do my case (s). It is hard to find a lawyer you can trust and believe in. I have used Lina in 2 seperate cases and I had nothing but professional and very friendly service. I have referred Lina to close friends and I will return to her again if need being. Thanks Bedford Law!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Lina is one of the best family law lawyers I know. I practice family law in Thurston County and have had several cases in which Lina has served as opposing counsel. She is smart, ethical, and vigorously advocates for her client. I strongly endorse Lina for anyone seeking family law legal representation!

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Lina Beckford is a superb lawyer and since I began working for her she has acted as a mentor of the highest quality. Lina's experience goes beyond what is necessary to get the job done and to the heart of the underlying intent of the law involving issues of domestic relations and families. Lina is able to anticipate with accuracy both the court's response to a given case and opposing counsel's potential arguments. Moreover, Lina shows a real and sincere concern for her client's outcome and well being.
