      Your integrity, brilliance and knowledge are extraordinary, I am grateful to have been represented by you. {newline}Having over 30 years of experience negotiating medical debt settlements with attorneys, I was anxious at the reality of needing an attorney to represent me in an employment matter. From the first meeting to the very end, every interaction with you and your team was exceptional.{newline}Without your support, I likely would have settled for less than was truly due me. Thank you to Scott and team.

      The Blankenship Law Firm changed my life and restored my reputation. I found The Blankenship Law Firm after hiring a different law firm that did not see the case as I saw it, and actually tried to pressure me to settle my case early before it was filed. Although it took a lot of collaboration and hard work on my part and my attorneys Scott Blankenship and Robin Shishido from The Blankenship Law Firm worked tirelessly to get me justice, it was well worth the investment of time.

      I want to express my deepest sense of gratitude and appreciation to attorney Scott Blankenship for all the hard work that he has put into my case (national origin discrimination). His attention to detail and professionalism surpasses his firm’s excellent reputation. He treats me with respect and I trust him completely, this has made it very easy for me to be open with him about my case and its impact on my family. He is not only a great lawyer but he became someone I would consider a friend.

      After countless hours of preparing, gathering information, getting witnesses together, phone calls, emailing back and forth, and several trips to Seattle , The Blankenship Law Firm and I received justice.

      I hired Scott Blankenship 3 years ago to handle my case, he did not file it for an entire year and never informed me as a client of this. He has posted my case to reviews without asking my consent. As far as value for his services, his fee agreement operates to his advantage and should say he will take over 80% of your settlement, never once received a REAL bill for what he was doing for 3 years. I paid for him to eat lunch at $500/hour and his lunch as well as ethics counseling. Not worth it.
