“Darcia did a great job for us. We were highly motivated to resolve our differences without using lawyers and Darcia did a nice job keeping us focused. When tensions would rise Darcia used effective one on one caucusing to understand each sides views, then pull us back together to move on. She was not only deeply knowledgeable of divorce law, she was also quick to research areas she was sure about, such as proper QDRO procedures for our 401k. Darcia was very easy to talk to and took a genuine interest helping us craft a plan that made it as easy as possible for our children to transition.
As a further testament to the quality of work she did, the Washington State lawyer that reviewed our documents for completeness an hour before our final hearing with the judge was very complementary of the package put together and wanted to know who we had worked with.
My only constructive feedback is that we got confused with the signing of the forms at the end. I think this was as much our issue for not being more organized but maybe Darcia could have helped us get organized a little more with all the documents. It can get very confusing.”
