Top notch attorney.
We filed for bankruptcy back in 2012, which was a difficult decision for my wife and I. Hector and his staff were knowledgeable, courteous and his rates were very reasonable. They made a difficult time in our lives much easier to go through and we are externally grateful. I would definitely recommend Hector and his team to anyone who needs legal advice.

Hector helped us in a very difficult time. We were losing our home, our cars, and I was concerned what a bankruptcy would do to my employment status. He explained the process in a way that it was easy to understand. We can't say enough good things about him and his office.

Great immigration lawyer for the entire family!
Not only is he a great lawyer, but his office is great! They understand the language and explain it. More importantly, they listened to what we needed! We should have gone to him sooner! You won't regret it.

Great experience
Not only was I pleased with the outcome of my case but also the way it was handled was refreshing. My case was taken with prosessionalism and care, I was happy to have put my trust in their team. The attorney on my case, Clay Cook and also Mr. Quiroga are both great people to have on your side

I could not be more thankful
After many years of being told no by many lawyers, Hector sat down and review our entire case. He worked to get the documents needed and the evidence needed. He told us it would take a long time but it was possible. Today I am a resident and I will be able to apply for citizenship in the future. My family could not be more thankful! Gracias!

Mr. Quiroga and his office are fighters
We retain his office after a prior attorney told us we had to leave the United States. Mr. Quiroga reviewed the file and found out we could fix our situation here and pay a fine. We could not go back. It was dangerous! Today we have all documents in order! Thank you.

A Huge Asset To Our Business
Hector is amazing. He really helped my wife and I get our small business properly organized. He was very personable, easy to communicate with, and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!!!!
Posted by anonymous | October 15, 2012
Wonderful lawyer, highly recommend
I have used Hector's services on more than one occasion and have always been very satisfied. I used him for advice on a custody/parenting plan enforcement issue, and also on a divorce/judgement lawsuit. He was always prompt at responding and keeping me informed on the status of my case, and he always explained things well and gave me a great deal of information so I felt I could make an informed decision. I would use Quiroga Law Office again and would recommend them to someone in need of their services.

Great Family Attorney in Spokane
Hector was clear, to the point, and worked on resolving the legal issues. He did not try to make arguments that would cost more money or try to make issues where they did not exist. As a Family lawyer, he tried to resolve the matter before going to litigation. My ex husband was very difficult but Hector was able to make him see why coming to an agreement would cost us much less in a divorce.

Representation?
Awesome guy to be around or talk to. The issue is bad legal advise, lack of client representation,. My case started with a poor job of filing. It left us 7500 behind at the meeting of creditors. Hector refused to negotiate on our behalf the delinquent amount caused by his office. We then lost a vehicle as he didn't fight for us to retain it. -10k equity . He advised us on a property lein which proved to be bad legal advise. We fired him and negotiated ourselves successfully the arrearage on the plan, yet he could or would not. We then hired a new attorney for 2500 more to fix the plan mistakes but ended up withdrawing the chapter 13 altogether to save our hide from all the mistakes. These BK lawyers work every day with the court. They won't side with you as a client and cause any waves because you can be replaced and they have to deal with the court people for ever. Think twice before you hire someone to work for your good that has your best interest clouded by friendship with the court employees.
