Natalya is the best!!!
I needed help with getting early release of my Probation. I wasn’t sure if I was eligible and what paperwork I needed. She looked into my case, called me back and got me going in the right direction. Thank you Natalya!

Client
Natalya is very dedicated to her work and loyal to her clients. The first thing I noticed about her is an unwavering sense of justice, the knowledge and willingness to stand up for the rights of her clients and her strong work ethic. Natalya was able to get my case dismissed without me even being present! It at our first meeting it was obviois that she had read my case files thoroughly before because she already had a plan in mind and not once did she get my case confused with another client's. She is quick to respond to calls and messages and she is very understanding of the hardship that some clients face. Natalya Forbes is a great lawyer because she shows genuine care and concern for those that she represents and because she is relentless in her fight for your rights. Thank You Natalya :-)

Excellent attorney
Natalya was the only bright spot in my stressful ordeal of charges for Assault 4 DV. Much to my surprise she was able to get my charges completely dismissed. I highly recommend her services as she is competent and delightful.

Excellent Attorney
I had a chance to work with Natalya Forbes on the family law matter few years ago. Very professional and competent attorney. She is respectful to other parties involved in the case, but at the same time she will greatly advance her client's cause and she will do everything possible to leave her client to in the best position at the end of the case. If Natalya is your lawyer, you know that she will take excellent care of you as a client. We need more lawyers like Natalya in the State of Washington.

Natalya is a very professional and caring about her clients I strongly reccomend her for any case, I had some strong charges pending, dv, violation of my probation and drug related charges. Natalya believes in her clients and getting them back on track in their lives. She kept me up to date and was right there to have my back. I was given a another chance and have a great life today thanks to her and her firm!

Highly recommended
I was charged with an assault 4. Natalya was able to keep me from getting a conviction of any kind on my record, without going to trial. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking criminal defense councel.

A wonderful lawyer to work with!
I was charged with Assault 4 DV. I was terrified. Natalya was so wonderful, she explained everything in great detail, I could contact her anytime and could ask her any thing. She always kept me up to date about what was happening, she called to check on how I was doing. Natalya completed my case with the best possible outcome for me. Natalya is a strong, competent lawyer who demands great respect in the court room. I felt well represented and always felt she had my best interest at heart. Natalya got me through a very scary and tough time and without her hard work and compassionate support I would not have fared so well.
