Grateful client
Josh helped my wife and I draft our wills. He was great! He kept the process simple and was responsive to our questions. I've experienced first hand the value of what having a will can do to bring closure to a family member's estate. I'm grateful for the time and assistance Josh provided to help us get our wills done.

Phenomenal Service, Very personable!
Joshua Bam was extremely personable and easy to talk to. He composed agreements that were very very thorough, and he made sure to take me through each clause in great detail and took the time to answer all of my questions - however naive the questions might be. I know that I have found my go to person for all my legal requirements!

Outstanding Communication
Josh has been very instrumental in the start up of my company. I feel confident and secure in how things are happening. Questions? No problem, he will explain them in a way that makes sense and not misleading. There are so many things to know? No problem, he will meet with you in person so that you understand that your goals are just as important to be met as you. Thus giving you a legal understanding of what is expected of you. Thank you so much to the Benchmark Legal team too!

"Josh Bam is an attentive listener who is whip smart, knowledgeable and thorough in his research. On more than one occasion I have referred challenging legal matters to Josh that fell outside of my areas of expertise. One of the clients I referred to Josh was so happy with his service and the results they brought us cookies to thank us for the referral. You can't make this stuff up. I can truly say that when I refer a client to Josh Bam, I refer with great confidence indeed. Josh is a great addition to the Washington State legal community and Benchmark Legal is team of talented legal minds. Without question, Josh Bam is one of the "good guys"!"
