I am extremely pleased with the representation from Attorney Evan Baer of Goldberg Jones Seattle, WA. The beginning of my case started a little rough considering the circumstances, my heart was under diress just thinking about my children and there was a little bit of panic on my end. But Mr. Baer helped get me through it, constantly reassuring me that everything was going to be okay and under his directive things have definitely been playing out in our favor. Mr. Baer is very passionate about his clients and his work and I am very greatful to have him as the attorney who is representing me in my case.
I’d heard about Goldberg Jones but only recently was able to get their help. At first, my wife was taking the lead, since I was out of town. Once I got back, I talked with Evan and he explained what our options were and most likely outcomes.
He made sure to keep both of us informed on everything and I’m sure the court proceedings would not have gone in my favor as they have recently, were it not for him. I greatly appreciate all the help he gave us and how informative he has been. Definitely recommend 10/10
Evan went above and beyond in every way. He demonstrated true integrity and professionalism with the highest level of quality, compassion and respect. I was treated like person, and not just as a case. Evan did not leave a single stone unturned, and I will forever be beyond grateful for the magnificent service I was provided.

Me and my husband contacted Goldberg and Jones after a recommendation of one of my coworkers. Ken provided the initial consultation and gave us some options of different paths we could take. After deciding how we wanted to proceed, we where handed into Evans very capable hands.
Evan immediately set up a meeting to go over the very lacking parenting plan my husband had been given during his divorce and sent us a list of things needed to build our case (list of our wants and must haves, etc). Once all our documentation was in he immediately began filing and getting the ball rolling for us. Something we couldn’t figure out how to navigate on our own.
Evan has stood by us through the thick and thin, dealt with the craziest of things that could happen and remained calm and reassuring to us. Evan has been realistic of what to expect to happen so that our hopes aren’t crushed by unattainable expectations. By far the best attorney we could ask for.

Goldberg Jones did an amazing job at helping me obtain full custody of my son. I am a single father, and Evan, the attorney that was assigned to my case was the perfect fit for my personal situation.
The managing attorney has a magnificent ability to recommend the best possible attorney for the situation at hand. Evan went above and beyond in every way to address the safety, and well-being of my son.
Through the drafting of my parenting plan, to the court appearances and much more, Evan demonstrated true integrity and professionalism with the highest level of quality, compassion and respect that money can buy. I cannot recommend Goldberg Jones enough, and in particular, Evan Baer. If I was able to rate higher than 5 stars most certainly would.
I was treated like person, and not just as a case. Evan did what seemed to be impossible in most people’s eyes, and permanently assured the safety and well-being of my son, in my care. Evan did not leave a single stone unturned, and I will forever be beyond grateful for the magnificent service I was provided.
