What others say:
"I just want to thank you again for representing me. You have provided so much for the kids and me that I could not properly put into words. I can say that I have a new measure of freedom, safety, boundaries, strength and peace that prior to meeting you I did not have. Thank you for standing firm for me when no one else would and when I didn't know how to." -- J.U., Marysville, WA
"In a time that was very difficult and painful, Paul worked on my behalf and for my children. He took charge, fought for us and steered us through. He did this in a way that caused us to feel safe in the midst of turmoil. I will be forever thankful for his expertise and his kindness." -- C.B., Bellevue, WA
"I have worked with other attorneys before and I have to say that my experience with Mr. Petry was the best. He really took good care of my case, made me aware of my options, and went above and beyond to help not only provide counsel, care and concern for me, but worked his best to achieve the best outcome between the different parties' grievances. Without any reservations, I recommend Paul Petry to anyone seeking legal counsel and advice." -- A.A., Seattle, WA
"Paul Petry was very professional, encouraging and supportive during my painful divorce, while also highly skilled at reaching a fair settlement in a short amount of time, though never rushing my divorce to finality. He kept my legal costs to a minimum and did not try to lengthen his services with unnecessary meetings. I noticed he worked very well with others in the legal community, yet maintained my interests as his first priority without negativity toward my ex-husband or his legal counsel. Throughout the process, Paul consistently advised me of options to consider in order to protect my emotional, financial and legal well-being." -- I.H., Issaquah, WA
